The food was ok.. Friendly;s is not a ;a place you would go for fresh food which is my preference.. however, every once in a while, its good to go to Friendly;s. The service was good. the food was ok until we got to dessert... then everything was great!!

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

We stopped by for an ice cream as the Sea Swirl was closed. The floor was covered in leaves and the service wasn't great. Very limited flavors of ice cream available and it wasn't good. We didn't finish our one scoop. Wouldn't go back.

Arrived here at 9:30 on a Sunday morning for breakfast. When we were seated we were told the coffee was brewing. It seemed like 15 minutes before we got the coffee. Our waitress, Kathleen, was very nice and apologized for the delay. It just seems that on a Sunday morning at that time coffee would already have been brewed. We... More

We had supper there one evening when we were visiting Mystic - we were made to wait about 20 minutes just to be seated even though there were plenty of seats. My sister has problems with her legs/hips so this was not a happy moment for us. The food was adequate and so was the service.

We pay a visit to Mystic Seaport... Friendly's was right there... we knew the menu so no surprises there... food is always decent... we walked inside the restaurant and ... we went back in time - we got stuck in 50's. Kind of quirky and cool. Plenty of booths and old time decor... service was nice and fast... and the... More
