Like eating inside a stainless steel refrigerator.

Food is ok service is ok price is not bad. But it's another place that remodeled and lost all there cozy charm (fireplace included) in favor of that horrible industrial style. Yuck. I don't go there anymore.

The new Friendly's inside and outside is a remarkable changeover. The new design and seating arrangements is really established for the family, but it is also outstanding for seniors. Seniors get 10% off of any order on the menu plus a free sundae for dessert. Now add to this the best clam strips since Howard Johnson's went out of business... More

The place looks very nice and the décor is great, but menu is very... Very... limited. If you love beers, this is something you would enjoy. Food is good but not many choices at all.

Surly servers, slow service, too much cash for the meal you get, never refill your drinks, never asked if you would like desert... wont go again which is a shame because when we were kids this was out " treat spot" with our parents, we wanted to keep it alive with our kids...

We go to Friendly s every Friday evening. We take my husband s mother and she enjoys it very much. We like that you get the yummy sundaes for dessert.Our local Friendlys is pretty good. We have been to others that were not as good. I guess it depends on which one you go to.

We took our two grand kids to Friendly's for dinner last month, and the restaurant was full when we went. The food was okay. Nothing special. The service was okay, again, nothing special. I think that the menu is fine - just the food prep is needing some work.

I can't even call Friendly's a restaurant, I would not go there for a meal. However, I do stop in with family for ice cream to go because they send out coupons and the ice cream is decent. The last time we went for a three scoop sundae the cup had gotten smaller yet again, but the price remains the... More

The help at Lebanon should go and watch how quick people wait on you at the Sinking spring franchise. I am an office manager and we need to wait on our customers or we will not be needed eventually. I was very disappointed. I wanted a reeses peanut butter cup sundae so we stood and Waited for 15 minutes and... More
