My kids always want to come here. The food is always prepared properly and the ice cream is great. The menu could have a little more selection. But what is on there is great. I would like to see the breakfast menu expanded and times available extended.

I love the ice cream selection at Friendly's!! There are lots of flavors and toppings. However, our meals were not very good. The food was dried out and not very flavorful. The service was excellent and the restaurant was nice and clean.

Went to this Friendly's for ice cream. Our waitress Ericka was outstanding. Very personable and attentive. The manager Dora was equally accomadating. The only draw back is the small servings. Ice cream was good but a three scoop sunday is a one scoop everywhere else.

Our meal was perfect, it was such a pleasant breakfast. The staff was friendly and made us feel welcome. Even as we were leaving two ladies came and in evidently are frequent visitors because the young man greeted them by name just like family. Thats nice.

As a family, we have gone to a lot of different Friendly's restaurants. Near home. On the road. Wherever we can find one. The prices aren't too high and everyone likes the food. This particular Friendly's is very near Hersheypark and the Hershey Lodge. It doesn't HAVE to be good, since it's mostly for tourists who will only come once....yet... More

We arrived late (a bit before 10p) for dinner after the park, and though the restaurant was not crowded, the staff could not keep up with demand in a timely manner, though they sure did try. This seems to be a management issue, not a staff one. Staff was super-friendly and food was typical Friendly's. We chose to eat outside... More

This was hard to rate. The food was very good, however going by the overall experience it was poor. I felt sorry for our server, she seemed to be trying hard and was frustrated by things, such as we were never given cutlery when seated, our order took very long to come out and apparently another server took our appetizer....
