Go to Friendly's on frequent basis with my elderly father who loves the restaurant and seeing his friends... Boy, it leaves a lot to be desired. Average food, not hot enough, small portions, high prices. If you don't "have" to go there... Don't bother.

The food looks great on a menu but can sometimes be cold or poorly cooked. Though the price is ok this Friendly's may leave you at the door while waitresses are chatting. It is also a very cramped room.

With great new classic decor and a fantastic menu, this is the place. The food is really, really good now. The ice cream is still really good. Service is better, the restaurant is cleaner and it's worth a re-visit.

As a family on the go, we love Friendly's restaurants. It is a great alternative to the nasty fast food that can be found at other places. As a busy family often on the road for the kids sporting events, sometimes we just need to get a meal out, and we always look for a Friendly's. That being said we... More

My three kids have always enjoyed this place, mainly because of the ice cream but they also have great kid's meals. I prefer other restaurants but I will pop in here to make my kids happy. Very reasonable pricing too. You can't beat that.

Friendly's started out with the basic soda fountain menu, but they keep trying new things to keep up with other more modern chains. They have great ice cream sundaes, shakes, etc. but need to go back to the basics and then offer some tasty "healthy" options for adults.
