Stayed at the Avanti and ate here several times for breakfast and also just for ice cream. Service is excellent, very attentive and the staff are very good with kids. We went one night and there was a man making balloon animals and objects which the kids loved, please tip him well as he is really good and I don't... More

First time we had eaten here for a while, food was well cooked and tasty. My husband had coleslaw that he didn't care for, but only because it had a spicy dressing. Only glitch was that we got someone else's bill which was more than twice the amount of ours. Our server was apologetic and after several minutes got it... More

We went to the establishment. There was no one to receive nor did we see anyone excitedto serve us, not sure, because they were short staff or what. One lady says, as she was walking across the front desk "Wait a minute, someone will be right with you". The sound and the un-inveting tone made us walk right out. During... More

Went in to buy some ice cream, and I was standing there watching two employees looking over at me waiting on each other to take my order. Waited ten minutes before one of them took my order.

Not sure what restaurant the group of sixteen was visiting. But the Friendly's on international drive is horrible. Open tables but several people standing and sitting. Servers arguing. Only half the restaurant being used, though thy deer were six or more servers working. Told the wait was 15 minutes, with all the empty tables, it took over 30 minutes.

We stopped by this restaurant for dessert and were pleasantly surprised at how spacious and clean it was. This is not my usual experience with this chain. Our party of sixteen received excellent service. Our desserts were delicious. We will definitely come back.

For those visiting Orlando and the theme parks, the food is not always the best or affordable. One afternoon we left Downtown Disney and ate a late lunch at the Friendly's. It wasn't crowded and for the 5 kids and 4 adults we had a great leisurely healthy meal. The new kids' menu has options for the smaller or larger... More

On April 12, 2014 my girlfriend and I came in for the bbq chicken tender sandwich., I had heard all about this sandwich before arriving, with many choices to choose from for lunch in the area. I was told this sandwich was worth driving from clearwater to have lunch. It was super flavorful, though the food was great the exceptional... More
