We decided to stop there for a lunch with the kids. The service was very good and the ice cream desserts were excellent. But the compliments stop there... The place looks old and don't seem really clean. We even had an ant on our table while waiting for our plates. My daughter had a hair in her applesauce bowl that... More

Eating at your restaurant was not our first experience. The table and chairs were filthy, the waitress's clothes were soiled. The food was good and the ice cream was delicious. We were thoroughly disgusted with the dirty windows, filthy floor and the mess. Clean it up!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We will not return under these conditions. The Friendly's in Burlington is lovely. Thank...

Good ice cream pleasant staff, terrible food. I don't know how this chain continues to survive. Burger ordered well done still frozen in the middle. Sourdough bread had a green spot on it. I think it was mold. French fries just plain greasy.. This was never one of my favorite fast food establishment and time has not made me change... More

We went to this restaurant expecting a good (but average dinner) and even with these expectations, there are a few shortfalls. We ordered munchmania apetizer to start and this was ok at best. The mozzarella sticks were on the greasy side, same note on the quesidelllas (which should have been much fresher) but the buffalo chicken wings were actually pretty... More

We went for dessert, we were three people. Service was really very spotty. The waitress was totally inattentive to our needs and to top things off, we gave her a tip and she never came back with the change. The ice cream was good as always, but the place needs a good cleaning and its time to renovate this through... More

We had a very good breakfast at this restaurant a couple of days ago. Omelets were tasty with fresh ingredients. The fresh fruit plate was very good as well. I had the Meatlover's Scramble with white toast. This is now my favorite! I am a little dejected as to why coffee carafes are no longer left at the table. Refills... More

My daughter lives and works in the Plattsburgh area, and this is her favorite restaurant. And, if you don't need anything alcoholic with your meal, I pretty much agree with her. My personal favorite for lunch is the tuna melt and a bowl of chicken-noodle soup with a tall, ice-cold glass of milk. I don't think anybody does the family-friendly,... More

Terrible service. terrible food.... Waited 40 minutes for a sandwich and the coffee was cold. They offered to heat it for us instead of making a new pot. Would rather go anywhere else than this restaurant. Won't waste any more time talking about this run down joint they call Friendly's. Yuk !!!
