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

The food can actually be OK, and the menu refreshes are worthwhile. But the service is way too slow for this sort of place. Needs to be snappy like a diner, not paced like a fancy restaurant. Ice cream creations are pretty good, but they seem over-priced to me and almost always come out half-melted, like they either have been... More

We get here about once a month. The recent renovations are quite an improvement. Waitresses are friendly and helpful. Grandkids really love it.

The server Chelsea was very good, friendly. The food was typical of friendlies. The order to table time was terrible not unlike many friendlies. The atmosphere was good except for the dinner music(?) was to loud. It is a good deal for Seniors. Go there in a pinch but not if you are on a schedule.

Waitress was friendly enough but a little disconcerting to see tables with food when they came in after us and we sit waiting. Unlike other comments, I do like the new menus and especially the fish tacos and rice which were delicious! I like that seniors get a discount plus a sundae with any entree Instead of the old senior... More

I'm not a fan of Friendly's, so I avoid them. I always feel like I am eating wax food. It always looks nice, but it's mostly tasteless, from the breakfast selections to the ice cream. But, the kid’s like the atmosphere, so I braved another visit. We had a 20 minute wait and when bar-style seating became available, the hostess... More

This is not my favorite Friendly's (Hershey's is best), but was in the area and stopped for weekday lunch. New decor was disappointing. New menu is even more disappointing -- very limited choices. The usual faves are still there. There is a new "build your own burger" where you fill out a form with your choices (and most of the... More

When we were seated, the table still had some dried residue on it. When we told the person seating us she gave us another table (which also wasn't clean). She proceeded to bring in another couple and sat them at the same table she was going to give us previously without cleaning it off. We just got up and left.... More
