Great ice cream, but ants were a problem.

We enjoyed the ice cream, but we had some trouble with ants on our table. They seemed to be coming from the napkin holder. The server tried his best to rectify the situation but the ants kept coming from somewhere. The ice cream was delicious, but we were anxious to leave.

My husband and I happened to be travelling through Lancaster on the way to Massachusetts to visit friends and stopped at this Friendly's. This was our first visit to a Friendly's and we picked a pretty busy night to go but we were blown away by the customer service. I work in the hospitality industry and customer service is a... More

Stopped in for Lunch and got the $5.00 Turkey Melt with French Fries and it was AWESOME!!! From what I understand, they change the $5.00 Promo, but I don't know how often. Katelyn, our waitress, was superb when it came to Customer Service! The restaurant itself is very clean and there is parking right outside the front door, for your... More

We ate breakfast in Ronks, PA. The waitress seated my husband and me promptly and then told us the specials of the day. The food was prepared quickly and was good. We appreciated that because we had a lot that we wanted to do--Go to the Kitchen Kettle Village and the Reading Outlets. The restaurant was conveniently located because it... More

Some of our family went to place and take our food order to go. The food seemed to take forever and my order was incorrect. I was starving so disappointed to say the least. I asked for dressing to be held on my sandwich so they took it as hold everything. We won't be returning.

My brother in law went here for dinner, during our stay. He was very pleased by the politeness and service. Because of his experience we'd definitely go there during our next stay.

Over priced food with slow service. If going for ice cream ok but for a real dinner don't go. It a hang out for old timers and little children that make noise. Food is from a can.

I had a bun-less cheeseburger, it was much better than it looked. We shared a banana split. It was not as good as I expected, I think of ice cream when I think of Friendly's
