A friend and I went to Friendly Farms. The restaurant is located on a farm and the view was wonderful., The food was very fresh and the I was surprised of the amount of food and the price. I am glad I took the ride. I plan to visit again and tell others.

Dinner at Friendly Farms is a must for us during our annual trip to Maryland!! The kids love the family style meal (tons of side dishes!!). The food is amazing and the atmosphere is fun. Ice cream is served after dinner too! Love this place!

For almost two decades, I have been bringing family and friends to this old favorite in the lovely hill country of Northern Baltimore County. Not even once have I been disappointed. The menu doesn't change much, though there are seasonal favorites like Fried Oysters ( not to be missed!). The servers for the family-style meals are consistently wonderful, though I... More

Food is always great at FF. Price for crab cakes seem to rise with every visit. Chicken is always delicious.

We've been coming here since they opened in 1959. The concept has not changed much in over 50. Simple but great food. I believe the best crab cakes around. Highly recommend.

Food was good & atmosphere was good. I got the grilled ham & it was delicious. I thought it was very over priced but you do get ice cream for dessert.

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... 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.
