“Friendly's or Smelly's?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2014

Yes staff is friendly and at least breathing. However: I will not go there again because of the smell in the air. I've always noticed a faint garbage smell upon entering. Now there is almost a visible smell of stale grease in the air. The place needs renovation.

“Friendly's Hackettstown”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

They changed the menu. You go for quick meal and of course the ice cream. Staff has always been nice and the prices are cheap enough. The food is usually fried, way too many french fries. Free refills on the soda. Its not very clean, tables are not clean. The bathroom is a mess. The ice cream continues to be good.

“Good Friendly's”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2012

Clean, good food, typical Friendly's menu served promptly. Excellent service. Cordial staff. No wait to be seated. Clam chowder was very good as were the burgers. Seniors can order from the Senior menu which includes a nice portion of food and a sundae for dessert.

“Okay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2012

We go there with our grandchildren who just love the idea of choosing their own toppings. The burgers are good but sometimes the service is less than satisfactory. You can wait a long time from order time to serve time.
