Food was average for Friendly's, although it took quite some time to get to the table. Noise level was quite high.

Went here for lunch, good food. Had the burger, very good. The shakes are hand made and wonderful. Service was very friendly, but then everyone in Vermont is friendly. Prices were reasonable. Restaurant was clean and well kept. The manager does a good job of keeping this a well run establishment.

The food was quite good for this type of establishment but the food took forever to get to the table (though was hot when it arrived). The bathrooms smelled.

My family loves to go to Friendly's Restaurant for ice cream whenever we are in an area that has a location and we will try to search them out. This location was right down the street from our hotel and all I can say is stay clear of this particular location. BAD SERVICE! We were seated and no one waited... More

We are not usually fans of friendlys as the service is usually slow in all of the locations we have been to. In addition to slow usually servers do not seemed interested in their jobs and usually stores are on the grungy side. Our server did a nice job here she was friendly and polite. I ordered a salad and... More

Arrived around dinner and promptly seated.....and then waited about 25 minutes before anyone came to start waiting on us even though it was less than half full. After that, things proceeded reasonably normal. However, other tables waited longer than us and complained. Other tables had multiple wrong orders that were sent back. They were out of bananas (key ingredient in... More

Nothing terrible, but nothing great for lunch. Caesar salad was a little too smothered in dressing and croutons were way to big. Soups were okay but not memorable, plus they came out lukewarm and needed to be sent back for reheating.
