I love the ice cream and it's great for a cheap meal! The food is always good especially for the price! I have never ordered a meal here that was not good! You can get a 3 course meal here and not break the bank! The downside is that they don't sell liquor but this is a family restaurant and... More

You know Friendly's is actually not a bad place to eat. the food has gotten much better and they have some really great healthy options. the salads are fresh and the quality of their meat is pretty good. We actually liked their quesadillas and spinach salad and their soups are good. They are open late and their ice cream is... More

Friendly's is always a nice option. Food is consistently good. However, the service was very, very slow. I believe they were understaffed in the kitchen as well as out front, because the food was just not coming out. On the good side- all the people we had contact with were super-friendly and did their best to make people happy.

This was my first visit to this particular Friendly's restaurant. Trip Advisor wrongly shows it closing at noon, on Friday and Saturday, but it's actually open till midnight. Standard Friendly's menu and free WiFi Pleasant staff.

Thankful the place had Wifi when that wasn't working at the place I was staying. It was pleasant that it was about a 3 block walk from me too. Some of the wait staff were friendlier than others but in no way would I say any one was unfriendly.

Went here today to have a quick bite with my granddaughter. Mary our waitress was very polite and friendly. Food was good, dessert was great, and place was clean. I have to say I have been to quite a few Friendly's and always have to wait wait wait for service. And food, this place was fast, will visit again.

We had avoided Friendly's for about 15 years because we got tired of the mess on the check each time but we were craving a Fribble which is a super version of an ice cream shake so we tried again. It was fairly late on a weekday evening and the place was empty. Our server was friendly but failed to... More

It's a small restaurant & parking lot off Jericho Turnpike. It can get busy quickly. Food is good & service. Not fancy. Senior discounts. Take out window for ice cream.
