Place was nice, like an old time dinner. Food was pretty good, with good drinks and icecream. Service was slow, over all it was decent, with decent prices, but wouldn't try again.

The food is much like fast-food, but you are spending more money since you are being served. It's not bad, it's just OK. The ice cream is always good, but it can be pricey if you have a lot of people. There are always coupons for Friendly's in the paper.

We went here on Vetran's day, so it was pretty busy as they were serving free breakfast to Vetrans (Very Nice.) That being said, there was no wait to be seated, server was efficient and friendly. We had typical breakfast items, eggs, pancakes, grench toast, home fries, all good. The portions were generous, prices were good. I'd return.

Freshly painted, but tired. Stopped for Friday night dinner, and had to wait 15 minutes for a table. When we got inside, we found a dozen empty tables (but that section is not open because we don't have enough staff/waitresses on duty). Waitress lost interest in us when one of our party of four asked for an extra minute or... More

I had been going here every friday for almost two years and our server made us laugh and made our night. They let her go. They took the mac and cheese bites off and this one manager makes us feel like we should not be there.

My absolute favorite, maple walnut ice cream. Another staple of New England that I remember fondly....there's always a Friendly's around and always a pleasure to stop in and get ice cream....typical staple of Massachusetts.

All Friendlys are consistent, but this one lacks customer service. There were hardly any people in the restaurant when we got there, but it was five minutes to get seated, and had to ask for a menu, service was slow, mostly young kids working, and more into their own conversations. We left.

Had a pretty good breakfast at a decent price. Friendly's offers a AAA/CAA auto club discount which I didn't realize until I was ready to leave. It was my first time at a Friendly's but it won't be my last. Staff at this Friendly's location were pleasant.
