“Good Comfort Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

The restaurant is comfortable and reminds me of 40 years ago going out somewhere for a toasted cheese sandwich like Mom made. The menu is large and varied, service quick and courteous.

“Great Place for Ice Cream, not so much for lunch”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2012

Friendly's has always been a great place for ice cream and remains as such. However, I met a friend there for lunch in December and the experience was less than satisfactory. We both ordered club sandwiches and it was apparent that the turkey was well past the expiry date. We sent those back and ordered ham and cheese sandwiches, and once again, the meat was just plain bad. By this time we had lost our appetites and to their credit, they didn't charge us for the inedible food or the iced teas that we had enjoyed. I felt bad for the server. She was quite young and was really trying to please us. We tipped her well, but I will not go back there. That they would serve food that bad made it a frightening experience.

“Good Quick Family Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2012

It is what it is. A good place in the lakes region to take the family out for a dinner better then going to a fast food place. The servie is good, the food is good, and the prices are fair, not to mention they usually have a meal that comes with a desert. Everyone likes icecream, good place to visit for a family on vacation on a budget.
