A year ago this place was NASTY. I'm glad things seem better. However there are still issues here it's improving. Dining room is hideous and walls are dirty. Booth seats are Ripped up. For uppity tourist mystic it's shameful. Thank goodness for ice cream it took away from the mediocrenes for this visit

Took our grandson out to eat after his art lessons in Mystic. As you walk in the door the first booth had about twenty menus strew all over the table and booth. There were at least 10 booths with dirty dishes still on the table. There were only about 4 booths with customers. Our waitress forgot to bring our drinks... More

Good food, not so good service. I recommend when your server comes to get a drink order... order your food at the same time. When they are busy, they are neglectful. Also, when you order your food, make sure you point out on the menu exactly what you want. I might also recommend the server repeat your order back to... More

To start off, I gave this Friendly's an average rating, only because one of the staff members did her best to make this visit better after a disastrous start. There were five of us in our party, myself, my husband, my sister and her two teenagers. When we walked in, we saw they were pretty busy, but certainly not full.... More

Menu has changed and can be a little confusing to decifer. However their ice cream is delicious. Although it looks renovated the areas needed to be kept clean. Tables were left uncleared. Staff seemed inadequate and service was slow.

My nieces voted to go here but it was a sad choice. The service was horrible, the server was nice but very overwhelmed. At least the breakfast was 50% off.

A short walk from Howard Johnson's. Got a small discount because we stayed at HJ. Food was good and the service was excellent.

All of them got served before us that was 12 people. We asked he said he had checked and it was coming. About 5 minutes later it... More
