I have always liked Friendly's and missed them when I moved to Florida so when we saw there was one in LEE, Massachusetts we decided to stop. BIG MISTAKE!!!! First if all, the place looks run down and in need of a complete makeover. Secondly, we stood at the front waiting to be seated and there were some empty booths.... More

I've never been a huge fan of Friendly's. I've had some issues in the past, but keep trying them from time to time. This experience will slow down those trys. Stopped in after the outlets closed at 7. It was busy but not a single employee acknowledged our presence for quite some time. Other couples walked out, but we stuck... More

When in the area have to stop for ice cream sundaes. The service could be a lot better though. Almost impossible to get water refills. Waitress not cheerful.

As always when on the road looking for a family meal with atmosphere and value you can't bet Friendly's. Also to top off the meal try a Banana Split you will never forget it. Waitresses are down home gals with a great smile. Their hamburger's are delicious

Dinner was the best I've had here ever. It's been redone inside, feels really clean and the waiter was very nice. Good burger, chicken fingers, etc.

We stopped here because we wanted a quick bite to eat! They do not know what quick means. We were there a total of 1 hour and 18 minutes. Way too long for a restaraunt like this. There was a table that just walked out the night we were there because it was taking too long to get their food.... More

Decor hasn't changed since it opened. Waitress was pitiful. Took a full 45 min to get our food served. Then another couple min to get silverware. Food was so-so. They should can the tablet computer on the table and hire competent help!

We stopped here for dinner after shopping at the Lee Outlets. They have a large selection of items on the menu and a great kids menu (that includes an ice cream treat)! Try the hunka chunka peanut butter fudge - my favorite!
