Obviously there wasn't a manager to keep watch over this staff. A few minutes after being seated, a waitress said so everyone seated could hear her that the cook was swamped with order tickets and there would be delays. I could see inside the kitchen area where waitresses were texting, going out for smoke breaks, leisurly having drinks ect. while... More

We were traveling through when we were excited to see the sign. Since Friendly pulled out of our area we have missed them. We were only in for ice cream still te wait staff was very slow to service. Our waitress was outrageously busy with othes....so it seemed to be a management issue. Unfortunately our ice cream was very disappointing!... More

There $5 changing every other week sandwich is a great idea and should bring in a crowd.. It is usually always busy when we are there.. no matter what time of the day or what day of the week..

There was only ONE waiter on for the whole restaurant, the manager did take a few tables, but it didn't help much with the service. Waited 25 minutes for breakfast and the though he... More

So my wife and I stopped by for a couple of Fribbles. Two. After about 30 minutes on a light evening at the take-out counter... They got it wrong. Horribly inefficient and so absorbed in fixing what's going wrong, the staff just isn't cutting it.

My wife, daughter, son-in-law and myself went to friendly's for lunch. We arrived around 11:45 and saw that there were plenty of open tables. We stood in the waiting area for over 5 minutes as waitresses and managers walked past us. My wife asked a waitress if we could be seated and she said someone will be with you shortly.... More

We went to Friendly's in Horseheads, NY tonight and the service was beyond poor, it took four people to make our takeout ice cream order. We waited twenty-five minutes and the wait staff at the window was extremely rude. There were two people in front of us and they screwed up their order. We didn't discover there was a screw... More
