Stopped by for breakfast. Not the nicest Friendly's I've been to, but it was clean and the service was pleasant. Just had eggs and pancakes. Pretty much the standard fare. Was just ok.

I have used Red Roof Inn. It is right beside Friendly's. If I want a good or need to meet with a business associate, I have used this restaurant. It has always been clean, good service, in a timely manner. Even when they have a lot of people they are serving, they have always found a place for me.

Food was great just the burger was a little big for me but good. Portions are good for the money. Ice cream is great as always. Walking distance from the hotel was nice so we didn't have to drive.

Standard Friendly's menu. Must always have some ice cream. On DE 896 just north of I-95 Newark Exit. Ample parking. Close to University of Delaware. Attractively decorated.

My brother-in-law loves Friendly's, so we had lunch (Middletown, DE) and dinner (here in Newark, DE). So we are comparing "APPLES to APPLES". Wished we had returned to Middletown location. The ordering was okay, not fast. The delivery of food, another story. We waited as did everybody around us. Then, the food started to be delivered one table right after... More

Friendly's is a very nice place to dine. It has a versatile menu, is price competitive, has wonderful ice cream products and very convenient location and hours. A VERY pleasant experience.

Stopped in with my wife and daughter (2 yrs old) tonight for a quick meal before heading back to PA. Nice place and was seated quickly. Unfortunately, that's where it ended and we were quickly reminded of why we stopped going to Friendly's years ago even though there is one a few miles from our house. Our waitress stated she...
