We stopped for lunch in between mini-golf and a trip to Sandwich. The place was half empty but a 15 minute wait to be seated should have been our first clue. We were amazed watching the store manager seat people while moving as slowly as humanly possible and still being in motion. The servers were just as bad. Suffice it to say that it took two hours to get and eat mediocre food. By the time we left, about 2/3 of the tables were empty (except for dirty dishes that hadn't been cleared) and there were still five or six groups waiting to be seated. Fortunately, the rest of the day on the Cape was great.

Located in downtown Hyannis, Friendly's is the perfect family friendly restaurant when you want good food, fast and easy. The decor is all new and updated, the place is always clean and the kids love to have ice cream after their meal.

we were sat and the waitress came to ask for our drink order (water) and finally got them 10 minutes later by another waitress! the 1st waitress came back & took our order and immediately began to use the carpet sweeper instead of putting our order in!
I was surprised it didn't take long for our food to come out but the waitress never came back to see how our order was or if we needed anything! When she finally did come out she pulled out a chair across from our table to take our dessert order exclaiming how tired she was from being so busy! She had no other tables that we could see - huh? We had our dessert & got out quickly!

We usally get the fish and chips and fish tacos and they are always very good. You order to go food back in the ice cream department and you can see into the kitchen from there. The floors are nasty not even swept with boxes and food all over them including where they make your ice cream. When they are cleaning the floors in the back it's even worst because they put a inch of water everywhere on the floor and leave it to sit before pushing it into the drain an hour later.

I can say that the counters where always clean but looking at the floors makes you lose your appetie. Maybe it's like this in every kitchen (I doubt it) but at least sweep once every 2 hours!

My husband and I went for dinner last night, we noticed right away the place had been painted. It looked clean , but the color chosen for the walls made the place feel very cold Not comfortable at all. I remember about 15 years ago they had a nice fireplace , shelves surrounding the diners with old nik-naks, a warm color on the walls,. The restaurant was very warm and inviting.. Also, I was surprised that they now have the flat, tasteless burgers that all the other fast food places have. Why did they change their perfect burgers? ( we both ordered burgers) We always chose Friendlys when we were in the mood for a good burger, but now I can't say that anymore :(
