I love this restaurant! It is family friendly place with a home feel. we usually go on the weekends and enjoy the outside seating in the summer and of course the food is always good and the people are super friendly!

Service was very good, attentive, friendly. Food is better than OK. Solid choice for a burger and fries. Seafood dishes solid, just not extraordinary in a market where extraordinary is not very far away. Single room capable of noise problems when busy.

Not as good as it was in the 1980's but still a convenient and palatable choice. Nice people and pretty good food

My mother and I went to friends and company for lunch last year, and I remember a wonderful large, not too expensive dessert. We went again for lunch and I had a wonderful chicken waldorf like salad with cranberries. We sat outside which was nice. Then we had a great dessert. Prices are decent, atmosphere good, service good.

Came here for dinner with business colleagues for dinner and I was not disappointed. We hadn't heard of the restaurant but we're staying fairly close and happened upon it when leaving the hotel. We tried a bit of everything- mussels, calamari, caprese salad, wedge salad, seafood salad- everything was great. Our server, Joe, was incredibly friendly and we all thoroughly... More

Found this place while googling restaurants from I-95. It was delicious and reasonably priced. Such a great break from a long road trip. Wonderful outdoor seating. Thank you!

My new favorite, Lamb salad. Fresh veggies like a Greek salad, with marinated lamb lollipops cooked to perfection. Toasted pita and the tangy mint dressing top the salad perfectly. Never a disappointing meal here. Last time was the short ribs dinner, melt in your mouth beef with garlic mashed potatoes and haricot verts. The all american meal, better than Mom's,... More

Came here on a business trip to the area... constantly visiting the Shoreline of CT and I have heard about Friends & Company and see the consistent business going in & out... Why? High prices, small portions, and the food is so-so. Did I miss something? Honestly, everything should be scaled back $4-6 or the portion sizes should increase. Until... More

Have not been to Friends and Company for at least 15 years and probably will not go back for at least another 15! It was a cold, rainy night and decided we wanted something local. Staff is pleasant enough but food is not great, portion-size small and prices high. Very disappointed with all of our meals 😩
