It is about the ice cream!

Friendy's ice cream is better than its more expensive competition. The flavor choices are superior to Ben & Jerry's and the price is much better. There have been some corporate level problems, but hopefully Friendlys will restructure and continue to be around for a long time.

Growing up I was a big fan of Freindly's. What kid around here wasn't? But it seems that the service and decor has gone down hill as well as the food. The last time I went to this location there were several tables that had been previously occupied and no one was making any attempt to clear the dishes. The... More

I have gone to this restaraunt a couple times. Each time I have eaten there I have gotten sick afterward. There has repeatedly been hair in the food. The people who work with the food are not clean and I would not go back to this place EVER.
