We stopped at Friendly's on our way to NYC with 75 dance girls and parents. Not all of our group ate lunch at Friendly's but the ones that did enjoyed it. We were in a bit of a hurry and the staff were able to fit us in and deliver friendly, fast service. Worth a visit.

Male waiter offered very excellent service. Specials and options were offered to our group prior to ordering. Very well explained. Friendly's has been in the NY and PA area for many years yet some have closed their doors. Nostalgic for those of us that like to step back in time with this restaurant when we were young along with bringing... More

Well its what you expect from a Friendly's, good, flavorful, American food. We were in early but a friend wanted lunch and the rest of us breakfast but they were very accommodating in helping us choose the right things.

Arrived in Ithaca late and hungry. This restaurant was close to our hotel and had ample and well lit parking. We received excellent service, good food, great choices for ice cream. Excellent experience!

I don't know what it is with Friendlys, but whatever one I happen to visit, it takes forever to get your food. Like, for-ev-er. The Ithaca and Cortland Friendlys both had good food, but count on on extra long stay. Maybe bring a book.

We (senior couple) are in Ithaca for a couple months and regularly have breakfast at Friendly's near the Ithaca Mall. It's priced very reasonably and the breakfast is of good quality, meaning it tastes good, is hot and doesn't feel like a lump of lead in the gut afterwards. What we value very highly is the comfortable and homey atmosphere... More

Not many places to choose from near the mall for a hot breakfast. The menu didn't have many choices, and what I did have was just average. The omelette didn't have enough cheese, and the "home fries" were overcooked hollow chunks of dry potato.
