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

Sorry Friendly's, We tried your place after a great concert. We both ordered the two scoop sundae, ended up with a little over five spoonfuls, parted with 7.24, plus a 2 tip for the waitress, who did nothing wrong but bring us some of the most expensive 5 spoons of ice cream I have ever had……I am not kidding!

We were acknowledged as soon as we stepped inside the door and seated immediately which was great on a work day lunch break. We ordered the Asian Salad which was totally AWESOME!!! But, it was huge!!! We decided we would come back for it again, but split it next time.

I got there as they were opening for breakfast--maybe not a good time. The waitress was friendly and reasonably attentive. Their coffee was acceptable for diner coffee.

I had the build your burger and enjoyed all the options for personalizing your order, but the best thing was that for $4 you got a beverage AND a three scoop, two topping sundae. Building THAT was even more fun!

Good place when Dutch Wonderland closes at 8:30pm during Summer for late dinner and ice cream. Just a tip, leave few minutes before park closes as this is a popular idea.
