A dependable place, for family dining. When you wanted faster food without the grease of real fast food, but still actually food, unlike what ever it is they try and serve people at 'The Mex'.

In 2012 Friendly's underwent a massive overhaul and a number of their restaurants were closed as a result. This is one of them. Now it's a Governor's Restaurant, part of a small Maine restaurant chain.

This place is similar to Governor's....not quite a greasy spoon, but not quite a Chili's or Applebee's either. Unfortunately, while Governor's has amazing desserts to lift it out of average-ness, Friendly's is just standard cookie cutter chain food.
