wasn't expecting much and got less

We were driving by and looking for a quick bite to eat. We figured Friendly's is a safe place.... as we know pretty much what's on the menu. We were seated quickly and the hostess was very friendly. The table she sat us at slanted, but it was okay, nothing was rolling off the table. Our order... read more

Usually Friendly's is pretty good for us. But I ended up with a bad stomach ache. Also my husband didn't feel great either. We had hamburger dishes. It will be a while until we eat there again, not the best experience.

We visited this Friendly's during our stay in Laconia. We waited a long time to be seated. Four different people told us "someone will be right with you". When we finally were seated, I ordered a Turkey Burger and was told "we ran out". We ordered ice cream and were told a machine wasn't working. We waited a long time... More

Our order was mixed up but they compensated by adjusting the bill without complaints from us. Server was very nice, food was very good and my children enjoyed it very much. (5 & 2) Not our favorite location but definitely a good stop for families with young children

Lost power at home, needed to kill time out, and also get a reasonably good dinner out! Stopped by Friendly's had the Fish & chips, which was surprisingly good, nice taste and crunch, great tarter sauce. Wife had the BBQ bacon cheese burger with a salad. Att was good.

Girls always love to stop at Friendly/s - a familiar sight at home. Ice cream for all after dinner - they had no problem finishing it all!

first got there there were four tables being used the rest of the restaurant was empty it took us 10 minutes to just get a table not friendly at all. No acknowledgment at all. No smiles. Like we were doing them a favor. The waitress was okay, and the food was regular Friendly's fair. I think they need to put... More

I use to go here for long time and had the traditional friendly service however because of today I will never ever go to a friendly's and will tell my friends, family and followers not to do so. My family and I went to friendly's for lunch. When we ordered our drinks I asked for water (nothing special). When our... More
