Good food for dinner or dessert

Stopped after a night shopping and couldn't decide between a "2nd Dinner" or dessert. Ended up with both. Good selection and late hours for most local restaurants.

This property is a bit tired. While they have made some improvements, it is still not up to par. The food was ok. I had breakfast and the potatoes were too greasy to eat.

Completed some minor renovations to freshen the interior and exterior. Wait staff was very pleasant and good with the large number of kids that were there. Melts were drippy and delicious. A little cleaner than pre-renovations, I hope it stays that way.

I have to admit, the ice cream comes first here for me normally. We stopped in for a late lunch on a Friday afternoon. I decided on the 3 choice app. Cheese sticks, loaded waffle fries, and cheeseburger sliders. Boy, I got a large plate full that everyone snacked off of. I had it as my meal and I was... More

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
