The service was slow and the food was cold at lunch. The ice cream sundae was the best part of the meal. We understand that the company is closing restaurants and can understand why. Too bad, the menu is good, and the locations are ideal.

Went there late and not expecting much. But BANG! A great waitress and 2 of the $5.55 burgers. We loved our waitress, but she had too many tables to cover for 1 waitress

Went for breakfast to the Friendly's Wilbraham location next to the corporate headquarters. I understand why they are closing stores. Service was TERRIBLE!!! Took 10 minutes to be seated. We were told they were finding a place to put us. Guess the 10 empty tables were confusing. Took 40 minutes to get us our food. Will not bother returning here.... More

Three of us went to Friendly’s last night after a meeting for Sundaes. I have not been to a Friendly’s in years although I pass by many of them daily. It’s pretty well known locally that they have gone downhill again and again over the years with each new owner. We had a coupon. A coupon? Has Friendly’s gotten that... More

I am only giving this review 2 stars instead of one because I stayed to eat instead of walking out, and couldn't complain about my food. However we had a server (Gianna was her name) sit us down right in front of the door when it was a cold fall day on a Sunday afternoon when half the restaurant was... More

Wilbraham may be the home of Friendly ice cream but they have no restaurant in Wilbraham. This is the address of the corporate office and factory. The actual restaurant is nearby but actually located in Springfield, MA.

Being Massachusetts residents our entire life we are all too familiar with the Friendlys restaurant chain having grown up with them. They were always known for fast, friendly and tasty service and food. Heading west to Chicopee the Turnpike I-90 was backed up so we exited onto old Rte 20 and follwed it east. When we got to Wilbraham we... More

Yesterday's dinner with our 5 yr old granddaughter sadly typical of this particular restaurant. Slow service ( 35 minutes for our salads and Anna's hotdog) and both our salads were not what we ordered. The host didn't charge us for the kitchen error, thankfully. The Blakes would cringe to see how poorly run this place still is

I was sad to hear that the Northampton restaurant had closed. Unfortunately I suspect that it will not be the last. I had a late breakfast on Sunday morning at the west Springfield restaurant recently and haven't been back since. My omelet was horrible. It was a foamy premade egg concoction which was as bad as it sounds. Friendly has... More
