Wife & I stopped here as my final choice (my best bet had an impossible parking situation). Parking tight & handicap spots were filled but did get close enough. Very busy and it took several minutes to be greeted & seated. Menu extensive and choices were hard. My wife settled for a ice cream treat which she did enjoy. I... More

Unfortunately they are understaffed and there is typically a wait for food. Too many changes to what was a classic menu. No longer a good value.

Friendly's has good hamburgers and chicken wraps. Order the meal deal that is offered. The ice cream mocha chip sundae with hot fudge is what I love to get.

We were disappointed that this particular franchise of Friendly's was really unkempt. The floors were very dirty - food was strewn about in many places. The food portions were much smaller than other Friendly's we've been too, especially the fries, which come in a little basket that deceive you into thinking there is a decent portion inside, but there isn't....

With a name like Friendly's you had better produce , and they do that with flying colors. Good food, quick service, and above average servers, is why they do so well. Keep up the good work.

The last time we ate at this restaurant was over 3 yrs. ago and was so disappointed as to not want to go back again. The service had been terrible and the food not much better. For example; the hamburger was like a hockey puck. After explaining to the waitress, she understood and brought me a juicy, slightly pink hamburger... More

Went here for sundae's. I have to admit to having a secret (or not so secret) love of their chocolate chip ice cream. The only thing I complain about with them is they have this system that each person working there has to keep their own money. so, I see people changing out larger bills with smaller bills out of...

I once was a huge fan of the Friendly's chain of restaurants. I have found though that over the last several years a real decline in quality of service, food and selection. That's based on visits to a bunch of different ones in different states, so I am not just picking on one. The food here was OK but not... More
