Not sure what I was expecting, but it was underwhelming in every way. First and last time going to a this chain. From Canada, We stopped in for breakfast after a long 16 hour drive. We were looking for a decent breakfast and got fast food type garbage instead. Over cooked eggs, dry sausage, tasteless pancakes , fake maple syrup...weak... More

Disorganized. Understaffed. Outdated. These are my words to describe this Friendly's location. There were far too few servers to handle the entire restaurant, which is not very large. The servers and hostess were not communicating effectively which resulted in one server having a much heavier load of tables. The restaurant is also in need of renovation or at the very... More

We had a short wait and was within walking distance of the hotel. The food was hot and the service was good. The meatloaf not so much. Other than that, I would eat here again.

We do not have these chains anymore in Cincinnati, so when we are near one we make a point to have dinner there. The menu is varied, and value is decent. Happy Ending desserts are great.

Food is great, waitresses are always great. Bill adds up quick when you eat your meal and get ice cream, but overall pretty good.

We love Friendlys and this was the only the second one we`d seen on this trip so it seemed a good idea to have a late lunch. We ordered but every part of the meal took ages to arrive and the waitress kept apologising but I don`t think she tried to sort it and it all ended up as a... More

I love Friendly's. This one was very much like a cafeteria. Did not like the ambiance at all. Needs to be redecorated and rearranged so that it is more inviting and cozy. We ended up using the carry-out side for dessert only, which was great. The lady helping us was fabulous. Very talkative and friendly with my kids.

After purchasing ice cream from Kirk's Ice Cream parlor, spending no less than $20 on one scoop of ice cream for four people, it was quite refreshing going to Friendly's and only paying about $10-12 for 3 single scoops of ice cream and a milk shake. Staff was friendly. The place is a bit outdated, but for the price and... More

We always stop at Friendly's wherever we go, as there aren't any in our area, so we were happy to see one near our hotel in Myrtle Beach. The server was nice, but not very good at her job, and we waited forever, watching every table around us get their meals. The food, when it finally arrived, was very good,... More
