“good cheap reataurant in an otherwise expensive town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2009

I travel to Manchester several times a year on business. So many of the restaurants in Manchester are upscale restaurants with excellent food. However, this is not always a good thing if you are traveling on a budget. The Friendly's in Manchester is usually full, and their menu is predictable, affordable and good. I recommend it for anyone who wants a good meal without spending too much. It's also an obvious choice for families with children. Another good option in Manchester for Chinese food is Panda Garden.

“Horrible Service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2006

Sunday, October 1, 2006, my husband and I went to Friendly's for breakfast around 10 AM. After waiting around 5 minutes for someone to seat us, we were lead to a table that needed to be wiped off. The waitress apologized for the dirty table and preceded to wipe it off with a very wet cloth which left it quite drenched. She then said someone would be there to take our order. After waiting 15 minutes no one came to even offer us a cup of coffee. The final blow came when a couple who had come in after us was waited on and we were still sitting there. We got up and walked out. The restaurant was not packed. They claimed to have had a busy morning, but there was no excuse for not even offering a cup of coffee while you waited to have your order taken. That was our last visit to Friendly's in Manchester,VT.
