Friendly wait staff

Wait staff was very pleasant. Food was good. Service was efficient and the time to wait was not long. Very busy but moved right along.

for the price, you will get a large breakfast of your choice, and a free friendly service every times.

We have been to friendly's on more than one occasion, though at this location only once. The staff is friendly and the ice cream is a nice touch. The food, however, is average. You can get much better food within a few blocks in any direction. That said, kids seem to enjoy their experience there.

It was not very busy as far as people, so when we were getting seated I wanted a bigger booth for two of us. The hostess said I needed to take a small booth.... More
