Since Friendly's is not available in all states, I make sure to stop whenever I see one. We stopped at this one in Ithaca and were not disappointed. As usual the food was delicious and the service outstanding. Be sure to have some ice cream!

There is nothing different about this Friendly's except the staff. They are the friendliest, most hospitable staff of any Friendly's I have ever visited.

Our family so enjoyed our breakfast at Friendlys. We happened to go on a Friday and each breakfast was half price. Breakfasts are half price Monday through Friday!

We stopped at Friendly's the other day for just a quick lunch, and we enjoyed it. The milkshakes were outstanding, and our BLT sandwiches were both very tasty. There isn't anything fancy about Friendly's, but you can usually count on a great milkshake! Our server, Cheyenne, was very pleasant, very efficient, and very friendly. She suits the place :-)

We stopped at Friendly's on our way to NYC with 75 dance girls and parents. Not all of our group ate lunch at Friendly's but the ones that did enjoyed it. We were in a bit of a hurry and the staff were able to fit us in and deliver friendly, fast service. Worth a visit.

Male waiter offered very excellent service. Specials and options were offered to our group prior to ordering. Very well explained. Friendly's has been in the NY and PA area for many years yet some have closed their doors. Nostalgic for those of us that like to step back in time with this restaurant when we were young along with bringing... More

Well its what you expect from a Friendly's, good, flavorful, American food. We were in early but a friend wanted lunch and the rest of us breakfast but they were very accommodating in helping us choose the right things.

Arrived in Ithaca late and hungry. This restaurant was close to our hotel and had ample and well lit parking. We received excellent service, good food, great choices for ice cream. Excellent experience!
