We went there for my birthday. I liked that I could choose anything that made my burger, from bread to meat. The price was good, the food was good, the service was good. I said that I liked the funny straws for the kids and the waitress gave me one of each color to bring back home. I had a... More

The food is hot, and there's much more variety than in a fast food place. This location can get swamped, so you might have to decide to go down the street to something else. Not worth more than a 10-minute wait. The chocolate shakes/Fribbles are the best, and they even give you the leftover in the tall, silver container they... More

Service is a little slow for the plates being made and I find that typical of Friendly's. So make sure you are not pressed for time.

We have be coming to this Friendly's for around 8 years now when my kids were just babies. Many of the staff are still there. Generally the service is excellent and the food is a great value. It's simple food, nothing fancy, but they are quick and cater very well to kids. Very good ice cream menu as well.

We've been going to Friendly's since the kids were babies, so it's always been a favorite with our family. However, over the years the quality of food and service have both gone downhill, no matter which Friendly's we've visited. Interestingly, this Friendly's was as good as what we remember when we first started going to Friendly's 16 years ago! And... More

We were on vacation and were in the area so decided to drop in for a quick dinner. It is basically a diner-type restaurant, nothing fancy. Our waiter, a young man with glasses (don't remember his name) was extremely nice and very "Friendly." It seems to be a law, in Vermont, that the restaurants have to put the calorie-count on... More

It's not a fancy restaurant by any means, but I would describe Friendly's as great comfort food. Even though I am not a kid anymore, they still let me order off the kids menu, haha. (I have a small appetite!) I always get the cheeseburger sliders and mac and cheese. Beware if you order the sliders though - sometimes they'll... More
