Friendly staff served reasonable food after being warned when we sat at our table that it would be 20-25 mins before we'd be served. At least we were comfortable whilst we waited.

Arrived for a late lunch. Nice comfortable booths and our first time at this chain. Service and food delivery were prompt. Nothing special but a good value and seniors get a free sundae.

No better or worse that your standard Friendly's. BUT, as always, the ice cream specialties are to die for.

I've dined here a number of times while visiting the Mount Washington Valley and for the record, have no serious complaints. I wouldn't call it spectacular, but for a basic fill-the-belly fare Friendly's does the job nicely. Decent food and decent service. Stick to a basic bacon-and eggs breakfast, it's hard to go wrong.

This was the closest restaurant to our motel on 8/19 and 8/20/16. We arrived early evening for dinner and food and service was adequate.

We ate here twice during our vacation and honestly I don't know why we came back the second time. The first time we came, it was 11:01 AM. Their sign had stated 50% off breakfast. We were told they weren't serving breakfast anymore and the hostess walked away without asking us if we wanted to be seated. Clearly we could... More

I always go to Friendly's for the ice cream. They have special value meals, and the desserts don't disappoint. At this location, the staff are extremely friendly. Food was ready very quickly, and the bill was accurate. It is a family restaurant, so the noise level is always elevated :)

No atmosphere, cheap quality food, bad service. What else can you get in this place when there are 100 different restaurant better than this. You have to have no imagination to want to go eat at this place. It is just terribel.
