Very Good Family Dinner

Our son turned 29 recently and this was his pick for dinner. We have eaten here once before and I recall it being just average. There were 6 of us and a few people chose to pay the 12.00 plate fee and share a meal. There is so much food, that despite the fee, this made sense. There is nothing... read more

Clean family restaurant with awesome fried chicken and sugar biscuits. Love the apple butter and Moose tracks ice cream for dessert. Good portions and a good place for a group. We go after church service and everyone can pay separate easily.

If you have a taste for good, old-fashioned food served up family style, you just can't do any better than Friendly Farms in Upperco. We have been visiting there for many years and the food is always hot and delicious. When you arrive, they ask for your order at the cashier's window in the restaurant's waiting room. Friendly Farms has... More

Visited Friendly Farms while passing through and we were delighted with the food. My husband had the twin crab cakes which he said were excellent. .. mostly crab meat with very little filler. I had the fried chicken which was fried to perfection and the meat was very tender. The food is served family style. Our waitress, Donna Marie was... More

My friends have enjoyed Friendly Farms for years. Two of us had one crab cake, the other two one crab cake and a half chicken.The sides, the Cole slaw, corn, lima beans, apples, fries, bread and I forgot the rest are AYCE and ice cream too. The drive out to FF is restful, too and builds your appetite.

We had a wonderful meal for our first visit to Friendly Farms Restaurant. I have been on their email list for quite sometime and finally made it there to eat. Located out in the country so my first instinct is they have to have great comfort food. Since I was leery on getting crab cakes at a restaurant such as... More

Ok, so my review of our experience at Friendly Farm Restaurant last night: The food quality definitely does not match the price. Spent over 50.00 for two people to have 1 crab cake that looked more like a side of hash browns and pork chops that tasted like they were sitting in a steaming pan all night, soggy and absolutely...

Great room for a party! I'd estimate there was 80 people there and was room for more or a dance floor, if needed! Buffet included, sugar biscuits,(yum) rolls,slaw, peaches, cottage cheese, apple butter, corn, green beans, ham, mashed potatoes, gravy, and the wonderful fried chicken! Staff was very attentive to refilling when needed. It was a very good experience as... More
