“first Friendly's I've been at that warrants an excellent!”
Reviewed July 21, 2012

When we go to Friendly's in any area we visit, it's because it has cheap food that is relatively good, and it packs lots of nostalgia, as there was a time that we only went to Friendly's because the kids got free and fun sundaes after their kids meals. We got to tolerate the disinterested and overworked staff and slow service.
We were pleasantly surprised by this Friendly's!! The host smiled at us and was very weloming. The server was prompt and attentive. And the food came quickly!!!!!!! I don't think we've ever been at a Friendly's that claims fast service!! And the food was excellent as well!

Yea! our faith has been restored in Friendly's!!!

“Won't be back!”
Reviewed July 14, 2012 via mobile

I hadn't been to a friendlys in quite some time but a friend had a coupon so figured we would give it a shot.
First off, if you have to wait at the hostess station for ten minutes before your even acknowledged there is a problem. At this point we should have gone next door! We finally get seated and notice all of the empty tables were dirty, and looked like they had been for a while... Indicator #2 YOU NEED MORE HELP! We waited a few minutes for a waitress which wasn't too bad, food came out probably 15 minutes later. Food is average, nothing special.

“Good Comfort Food”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

The restaurant is comfortable and reminds me of 40 years ago going out somewhere for a toasted cheese sandwich like Mom made. The menu is large and varied, service quick and courteous.
