We've come here for years. ALWAYS Friendly, good quality, inexpensive. Especially their half price breakfasts, and Senior Program.

We’ve been to various Friendly’s over the years and this one was very nice as was our server. My wife and I both had the Big-Two-Do Breakfast Specials for 50% off. The 50% off breakfast special is good only during the weekday mornings and not Saturday or Sunday.

I was suspicious that the parking lot and eating area were half empty on a Father's Day morning. On group of five in front of us had been waiting to be seated over fifteen minutes. Ten minutes later my wife and I still had not even been greeted, let alone seated. Finally the manager came and asked the group of... More

Mt girlfriend and I both visited Friendly's recently (Saturday, December 12, 2015, I believe) not long after the girlfriend won a "$10 Donation" to a local "tricky tray" (look that one up if you don't know what that is). This was, essentially, a simple, very short, typed and signed letter (I don't think it was even on company stationery) from... More

Their ice cream continues to be good but the food is mainly fried! The clams were good but my wife became ill after eating the fishmajig. Service was good but the illness will keep us from returning for than ice cream.

The man named Trevor who waited on us was the nicest, friendliest(excuse the pun) and most comfortable waiter I've ever had. I will return for the food

The food was surprisingly good. The hamburgers are very good, also the bread. But the ice cream are the best item in the menu. Worth the calories.

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.

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... More
