This is by far the worst experience I've had in my life. My boyfriend and I received a coupon in the mail for $5 off a $25 purchase. We figured we would give it a shot. We walk in and the entire place is outdated. They probably haven't done any renovations in at least 25 years. The carpets were soaked... More

We were in Oswego visiting my son at college. We stayed over night and wanted to have breakfast together before we left. I had never been to a friendly's for breakfast before, so we figured we'd try it. Big mistake, the menu selections were very limited. The restaurant turned into a zoo which we figured was going to happen due... More

I have not been to Friendly's in quite a while. On this visit, I found they have a new menu which is much improved over their former one. I had the egg and cheese melt on grilled sourdough bread and found it to be pretty good. Also they had red potatoes with peppers that I liked as well. The service... More

My family and I have eaten here a few times in the past and enjoyed the food and service . . . this afternoon my daughter, her boyfriend, and I opted for an early dinner here - our waiter was promptly to our table - it started going downhill when we were given the menus - lots of inserts to...

Stopped here for lunch and was very disappointed. In stopping in, figured, how bad can it be, Friendly's has decent food. Well, I was wrong. The waitress was very friendly, and she did her best to make sure we enjoyed ourselves, but she couldn't save the food. Ordered a cheeseburger and it was just a step up from a McDonald's... More

Avoid this Friendly's. Period. We made the mistake of stopping here on a Friday night. I ordered the basic hamburger. When it arrived, the cheese was missing, and it was served on white bread. I had explicitly ordered it with a bun. If I wanted a burger on white bread, I'll eat at home. It was also cold, and surely... More

On this visit we were fortunate to get a very attentive waitress. Though she was wonderful the table was sticky from the guests before us as well as the booth, ketchup bottle, menus etc. Actually had french frîes I think stuck to my shoe as I left.

friendlys is an average eatery, Food is plentiful, but nothing to really brag about. Service can be very good or bad depends on the day and time. The restaurant is small and the tables are packed in, not much elbow room. We have found that we can't eat a meal and the ice cream desserts, way too much. Use the... More
