So after 9 hour's of driving, my friend and I decide to check in to our hotel and grab dinner. Closest location was friendly's restaurant. Never heard of one so we decided to try it. First impression is a 1950's diner. A manager I assume (black shirt) vs the other outfits looked up at my coworker and I as he... More

Go to Friendly's on frequent basis with my elderly father who loves the restaurant and seeing his friends... Boy, it leaves a lot to be desired. Average food, not hot enough, small portions, high prices. If you don't "have" to go there... Don't bother.

The food looks great on a menu but can sometimes be cold or poorly cooked. Though the price is ok this Friendly's may leave you at the door while waitresses are chatting. It is also a very cramped room.

With great new classic decor and a fantastic menu, this is the place. The food is really, really good now. The ice cream is still really good. Service is better, the restaurant is cleaner and it's worth a re-visit.

As a family on the go, we love Friendly's restaurants. It is a great alternative to the nasty fast food that can be found at other places. As a busy family often on the road for the kids sporting events, sometimes we just need to get a meal out, and we always look for a Friendly's. That being said we... More

Convenient location and smiling help make this a good choice for Senior Citizen breakfasts. Sourdough toast excellent!

My three kids have always enjoyed this place, mainly because of the ice cream but they also have great kid's meals. I prefer other restaurants but I will pop in here to make my kids happy. Very reasonable pricing too. You can't beat that.
