The food is great! Try the specials which are all you can eat. There not on the menu but all the regulars seem to know what they are... Just ask or check out the board at front door. Also has breakfast which was really good and priced right. There is a outside tiki bar that gets a little crowded during... More

Stopped in to Friendly's for lunch. Perhaps because it was a slow week day that they only had one waitress serving both drinks and food, but that caused the service to be a bit slow. Now we sat outside on a beautiful day so the slow service wasn't a huge distraction. We both had a burger, one a bbq bacon... More

This restaurant looks like it needs a makeover. Not being stuffy...it really smelled musky and dank when we first came in. Cook was friendly and offered us a free taste of his excellent chowder. A woman was cleaning windows and doing a great job but there was only so much she could do.

The name holds true: I’ve always felt welcome at this friendly place every time I’ve returned to the St. Pete area for vacation. Though nothing particularly special here, this is just a great, comfortable place, and I always know I’m going to have a fun time with the folks I meet, especially if it’s a great karaoke night. The crowd... More

Went for Karaoke mainly, but pleasantly surprised at how good the food was. Four of us and all were happy with our meal. Prime Rib (all you could eat $17.95). Surf & Turf stir fry (delicious). Mahi Mahi & Shrimp combo; I think youbget the picture. Food was all top notch!

We were on a walk and decided to stop in Freindly Tavern for an appetizer and a drink. Wanted to comment on the service as we really did not have a large meal. I cannot remember the servers name but she was so attentive and had a great sense of humor.

We went to this little restaurant twice; once for breakfast and once for lunch. Both meals were really good. Generous servings and good! Seems to be family run or something. Same person running food, same bar server and same cook both times- which is a good thing.

Love this place... Great outdoor bar with great pub food. The karaoke at night is very popular in the area and draws a big crowd. You have to say hi to JT at the outside bar..she is awesome...

First place I hit on this trip. Never been there before, but seemed like I was. Everyone from the staff to the customers were friendly. Had the wings. They were good. Actually both times I ate there I had the wings. The third time I just had drinks at the outside bar. Beer is cold and the outside bar is... More
