Service was impeccable from the staff. The quality of the food was excellent. We had no complaints, and the staff made no excuses (nor was there a need for any).

Most of the Friendly's in our area have been closed due to the restaurant chain’s restructuring. Friendly's started as an ice cream shoppe in Springfield, Massachusetts. In addition to their ice cream, they're also known for their Big Beef Burgers (supposedly never frozen) & SuperMelt Sandwiches. This restaurant had been remodeled. They offer 2 meals for $20: a choice of... More

Who could not like a Peanut Butter Parfait? Somebody/Someone allergic to PEANUTS, that is who? If you are not allergic to PEANUTS, make sure you head on down and try the Peanut Butter Parfait with hot fudge, whipped cream and your favorite ice cream and everything else that you could possible think of. It is GREAT! Enjoy!

Limited menu and seating. Servers are pleasant. Ice cream is better than most. Nice place to stop for simple lunch.

The food was very good. The food came very quickly and the service was excellent. The waitress we had was very friendly. The ice cream was also delicious.

After eating at Friendlys for many years, we were more than disappointed when we went in last night. They renovated the interior to look like a generic cafeteria. There are no more cute wall decorations, they removed the cozy booth dividers and and there is no welcome stand. If you want dinner, and you don't want a hamburger or a... More

I had a yen for fish and chips today May 8, 2015. I opened the door to see that it had been recently updated. I thought oh this is nice. After 5 minutes I was seated by my waitress. I opened the menu to be SHOCKED by the prices. I asked the waitress did the prices increase? She quietly nodded... More

The service is always friendly here. A couple weeks ago they were incredibly slow because they got slammed and were short staffed. They were so grateful for our patience they gave us free dessert! Last night I went in and thought it was a different place. It was redesigned and is much roomier than before. They realized more and more... More
