I often meet a friend for coffee or a sundae and have been to this Friendly's a few times. I went tonight, had to ask for napkins and water just to wash down my cup, spoon and the table. The coffee was very weak. We ordered sundaes, had to wait quite a while and when they finally came, they were... More

We waited a very long time for ur meal after our order was taken -- probably 40 minutes or so. We were not alone, however. Others also had long waits.

Mediocre burger, had to ask for napkins and utensils. Waited more than 15 minutes for our ice cream sundaes - which I thought was excessive. Won't be rushing back.

If you are looking to have a quiet meal, Friendly's is not the place to stop at as many families take advantage of the happy ending sundae. The cheeseburgers are not bad at all. It's very busy in here so prepare yourself to be lost in everybody else's thoughts.

The supposedly homemade mac and cheese that they boast about is not even as good as Kraft's Mac 'n Cheese from the supermarket and the screaming toddlers ruin the atmosphere.

Waitress took our order promptly and admitted she forgot to put our appetizer order in when she brought our meals out. The manager brought our appetizer... More

We visited this Friendly's last Sunday at 5:30 PM. There were several unoccupied tables, none of which had been cleared. We waited 10 minutes and were finally seated and given menus. We sat for another 20 minutes, with no server approaching to take an order. We left the restaurant, mentioning our experience to one of the women working there. She... More
