This was a favorite restaurant growing up. Menu updated with plenty of selection. Good food and decent serving time. Other patrons friendly, willing to chat, and give recommendations on sites.

I paid with my debit card and my waitress Andrea added an extra $5 tip to my bill, AFTER I gave her a 20% cash tip! Check your bank receipts if you plan to eat here or pay the bill with cash only!

Traditional "Friendlys" service and menu. A good place to relax and have some of your old time favorites. Don't forget the ice cream. Servers are hustling about and the meals come out quickly. You can usually eat for less than six dollars and the senior...More
