We stopped in for a quick breakfast. This particular was clean, and the staff very friendly and efficient. We ordered breakfast, and it came shockingly quickly. The waitress even offered to put our drinks in to-go cups, which was very nice. We have eaten here before and will be back.

Lots of choices. Good sandwiches, albeit greasy. Plenty of fries and huge ice cream desserts. Be prepared to pack in some serious calories if you there. Great for kids.

This was a choice by default looking for somewhere to eat late. It was a very old fashioned looking place desperately in need of an upgrade. It felt crowded and cramped. The wait staff was nice enough but managed to mess up my order. We were not able to order the omelet we wanted since it was only for breakfast... More

We followed up an excellent dinner elsewhere because we were looking for very high quality ice cream. We get that in several places locally, and Friendly's is one of those. We chose the take-out window. Service was good (had to wait 30 seconds or so). The ice cream delights were prepped and served quickly. Mmmm! We'll go back.

Stopped after a night shopping and couldn't decide between a "2nd Dinner" or dessert. Ended up with both. Good selection and late hours for most local restaurants.

This property is a bit tired. While they have made some improvements, it is still not up to par. The food was ok. I had breakfast and the potatoes were too greasy to eat.

Completed some minor renovations to freshen the interior and exterior. Wait staff was very pleasant and good with the large number of kids that were there. Melts were drippy and delicious. A little cleaner than pre-renovations, I hope it stays that way.
