Food was Tasty but with no presentation or what so ever. Coffee is Extra; Breakfast Potatos are extras; No One ever came to ak us for a coffee refil. Westrooms were DIRTY. A bit Expensive $$$ for a breakfast. Tastes good but the place doesn't worth a detour.

My husband and I along with his sister stopped for lunch. We didn't expect much therefore weren't overly disappointed, however these servers asked us repeatedly (with food on our plates and forks in our hands) if we were "all set" (not if everything was "all right") when we were obviously still eating! Three separate people asked us (one asked twice)... More

I am going to write two reviews on different Friendly's tonight and this one is a good one. Friendly's is not known for its stellar customer service but this one in Laconia is pretty good. I had a hankering for an original Big Beef hamburg and a chocolate Fribble and this place did a good job of meeting that desire.... More

I had the chicken sandwich from their $5.55 meal deal. The sandwich was the smallest I have ever been served at a restaurant. Chicken had a rubbery texture to it. The breading on the chicken fell right off. Worst chicken sandwich I have ever had. The "golden fries" were great. Crinkled, crispy, and hot. The interior of this place could... More

Always busy. Watch the soup, however, because it will be placed into the microwave and be delivered scorching for the mere mention it was cold at the start. Meals are prepared per order.

Took my daughter's there for breakfast and from the moment we walked in to the moment we left the service was horrible. There were only two tables when we arrived and we stood waiting to be seated for over five minutes even though they were not busy. Server looked elderly and sat us saying she'd be back for our drink... More

You can count on Friendly's for an inexpensive meal. The menu is the same throughout the chain so you always know what you are getting.

We do not have Friendly's in our area, it is an inexpensive hit for both my children and the grand parents. Who doesn't love a sit down restaurant priced like fast food and top it off with ice cream.

Friendly's is pretty consistent wherever they are located. We had breakfast here and (for the time being) they have a half-price promotion that made the trip a bargain.
