My fiance and I love friendlys because we're ice cream lovers but their food is also good too. This particular restaurant is pretty slow compared to others we've been to but the food it's self is still good.

We frequent Friendly's for the ice cream sundaes, which they usually make really well here, but we also have lunch or dinner too because we get coupons through the mail. This Friendly's is very inconsistent. Some of the servers are friendly and some are really...More
