Good breakfast!

This a nice family style place to have breakfast. Plenty of parking makes it easily accessible. It's very casual. Wait staff is friendly and wipe the booths nicely after each guest.

First time trying an online order. Web site was very easy to navigate. We were given a pick up time of 7:35. At 7:35 I entered the restaurant for pick up and was not disappointed. The order was ready and accurate as promised. Very pleased and will use this feature at this restaurant again.

The Friendly's near my house are famously not so great. So every time my friend mentioned wanting to go to one during our road trip Id give her a hard time. But we found ourselves at this one. The girl waiting our table was awesome and the milkshake I ordered was impressive. I was still thinking about it a day... More

The Friendlys in our town was closed, so I was very happy to have lunch at the Friendlys in Jamestown New York. I love the burgers and fries and ice cream for dessert. You can't be ice cream on a hot summer day. My only concern was that as I was in town for Lucy fest I was doing a... More

We were in town recently with family and friends, and at the end of a long day, we needed ice cream... so, we came to Friendly's knowing we'd have a delicious treat. It was just as we hoped it would be. We all ordered some type of sundae, and everything was perfect. Our server, Payton, was delightful, as were all... More

With all the Friendly's restaurants in Ohio closed, I had not eaten at one for nearly a year until I came to the Jamestown Friendly's. We were greeted with a friendly smile and taken to our table which was right by the kitchen. I decided to try the Honey BBQ Burger, since I had seen a commercial for it when... More

Met relatives up to age 90 in Jamestown, visited family graves with flowers, reminiscent of decades gone by and our future generation of children are our futue. Some things stay the same and many things have changed. Ending the evening with dinner at Friendly 's. Asked 3 times for table silver ware, food was cold. Restaurant was clean and welcoming.

We usually eat here when it is later in the evening. Friendly's has a decent selection at a decent price. This restaurant usually has a good wait staff and quick service.

With all of the choices in town, why bother with this one. Mostly a burger and ice cream place, it's quite typical. A little over-priced for what you get. Most chains are typical of this because of franchise fees. As said, their burgers are fine and you will get a nice sundae, if that's what you want. No complaints, it's... More

Food was good, service is most definitely lacking. Had no silverware for 10 minutes after food was brought. Food was hot and pretty tasty. Had to wait an unusually long time for coffee refill. Was somewhat dissapointed that the endless shrimp do not come with refill of fries. I guess if you are not in a hurry the poor service... More
