OK food and an OK staff. Crowded and loud but the service was friendly but the portions are small. Good location and great for a dinner fix.

Stopped in for a quick breakfast. Only wanted an order of bacon and some dry toast. Our waitress suggested that I could save if I ordered the same foods with two eggs. What a pleasant surprise, someone looking to give us the best bang for our buck. The food is delicious and the restaurant is crisply clean.

We ate breakfast there because it was expensive to eat at Hershey Lodge. The food was cheap. It's hard to screw up breakfast. We were in and out in less than an hour.

Good memories filled my mind when visiting Friendly's, as it had been a childhood frequent place. As remembered, the service is very friendly, the food was up to expectations, and my kids loved the Ice Cream selections (In The Retail Window).

This place makes me NEVER want to eat at Friendly's again. Sub-par service and the food is bland. Can skip it forever.

We use to stop here at times when venturing to Hershey. Last few years it has been horrible! Service was horrible, and that's putting it nicely. Our food came out cold most of the time and nothing was done to fix that. A few times our food was so over cooked that it was dry and nasty. My daughter loves... More
