The males of the business are so much easier to get along with & try to make your experience excellent. When it comes to the wife, she's something.

Had a craving for Chinese food and went here. Food was bland..just totally disappointing. Would not recommend it again. Maybe buffet is good cause the takeout was horrible.

At first I was skeptical of going to friendlys because of the reviews on here being so bad. I've always remembered everything being fine so we took the chance of going and I'm glad we did. Sat right away and drink orders taken. We had the buffet. They were getting low on some items but it was a slow night... More

Going to Friendly's is fun. The buffet is so expensive that you will return again and again. Try their seafood!

Like most Chinese buffets the food sits for hours in bins. Unless you get there right at noon it will be old food.
