After years of horrendous and non-existent service, dubiously-cleaned dishware, and subpar meals, this Friendly's is now closed. The only upside is that, when you arrive at the vacated premises, you will get a better response than when it was opened and staffed.

I have always gone there for ice cream, but the food and service were a disappointment. Good parking, great location. Lacks intimacy. I see hardly any children there for an icecream place.

This is your basic Friendly's. The food and ice cream are good. Food came hot and quick, ice cream was served fast. Service was friendly and fast. Just like the Friendly's experiences you've had at other good restaurants in this chain. Recommended.

Friendly isn't the same. It has changed. I think they need to find employees who want to work and care about customer service.

While I loved going to the Friendly's in Security Mall as a kid, I loathe taking my son to this restaurant now. Lackluster, unhealthy food. Stale, outdated decor with a faint smell of smoke from the days they allowed it inside this restaurant. Even the...More
