I have been going to various Friendly's restaurants since I was a kid. My experiences are mostly positive and this particular Restaraunt visit was no different. My kids love this place. They are very family friendly. Kids get crayons and a paper to color on. They also have a kids menu with pictures of each meal to go with it... More

The restaurant lives up to its name when it comes to service. The food is what you'd expect; we go because Mom enjoys getting out.

This is a typical quick service sit down restaurant. Staff is usually very friendly, Food is usually good. Price is relative inexpensive. They offer kids meals that are priced good with kids sized portions. This is a step up from the fast-food chains, but dont expect top culinary choices. Kids always leave with an ice cream balloon and a smile.

Looking for fast alternative dining to eating at the casino prior to a WNBA basketball game, Friendly's hot the spot when we wanted a quality meal with limited time.

Plus a free baloon! Choclate Chip Pancakes were some of the best I've had. We both devoured a delicious breakfast worth all the calories. Just what you want after a late night up at a concert and casino! Great value too! Better than most diners!

Restaurant smelled like a musty rug. Our table was sticky. The food (we had breakfast) was not very good, in fact the breakfast potatoes made me sick (I only ate about 2 bites of them). The waitress was friendly and service was good.

We are on a trip to New England, and my niece's husband is from up here. He told us to try a Friendly's ice cream. We did at the 1st one we saw, then went again yesterday. My wife had their famous Frapple, and it was a good milkshake, but not the best ever. I had a Lava Cake Sundae,... More

Called in take out order. Arrived. Not very busy. Stood around for 15 minutes. 5 waitresses stood around and chatted. All looked at me but never asked to help. Employees and customers they knew screamed toeach other from the kitchen to the waiting area. When he finished helping another customer, BRANDON at the ice cream counter helped me. He was... More
