“Good Old Friendly's”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

The food looks great on a menu but can sometimes be cold or poorly cooked. Though the price is ok this Friendly's may leave you at the door while waitresses are chatting. It is also a very cramped room.

“The New Friendly's”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

With great new classic decor and a fantastic menu, this is the place. The food is really, really good now. The ice cream is still really good. Service is better, the restaurant is cleaner and it's worth a re-visit.

“Love the food..just slow service”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

As a family on the go, we love Friendly's restaurants. It is a great alternative to the nasty fast food that can be found at other places. As a busy family often on the road for the kids sporting events, sometimes we just need to get a meal out, and we always look for a Friendly's.

That being said we recently had a poor experience, not because of the food, but the service.We wanted to order 'to go' so we were directed towards the ice cream counter. We then had to wait twenty minutes just to order because there was only one guy dealing with to go orders, ice cream orders in the shop, as well as the ice cream window for people ordering outside. We finally got up to the line and asked how long it would be for the food we were asking for - and were told 15 or 20 minutes. So we sat at the ice cream bar..and waited..and waited. The staff buzzed around us, people came and go..and soon 45 minutes had gone by. No one ever came up to us and let us know anything. The meal finally came..only complaint is we feel like we were told an unrealistic amount of time for our meal..and we kind of felt forgotten.
