Friendly's in Oneida closed three years ago. Loved to go there but now Syracuse is the closest open store! So if you are traveling to Oneida for ice cream then try Nicky Doodles!

This Friendly's franchise has closed. So don't bother looking for it. The building is up for sale now and is a prime location with good parking so who knows what will happen.

Whenever one of our kids experienced some wondrous success at school we would all pile into the car and go to Friendly's. The staff is great and is made up of local people. The ice cream is great and the atmosphere is fun.

I love going to Friendly's because they have a wonderful menu with great choices many for under $10 which includes your drink, entree, and even happy ending sunday dessert. Price can't be beat. Staff is always friendly :)

I have visited this Friendlys off an on for over 20 years. The service has been consistently slow. There seems to be enough customers in Oneida to fill the place anyway but I don't now why?
