We had breakfast here twice during our stay in Lee. The food was really good. And with the 50% of breakfast made it taste even better!! Quick and friendly service.

This was not a good place to stop for lunch!! It was dirty, loud and the food was not good. Normally we like friendly's but maybe because this one was both serving locals and out of towners it just couldn't keep up. It was old and out of date with one tiny bathroom for one person. All in all I... More

I was on the road and instead of stopping at the rest area fast food I found that less than a mile away there was a Friendly's. I already have been driving a lot of miles and still had three hours before arriving home. I went directly to the counter and the hostess gave me a menu right away a... More

We stopped here for a late lunch and not being from the area, we didn't realize that we had to "wait to be seated." The restaurant is tiny and there is not an area to wait and there was no sign. There were no other customers waiting to sit in front of us.We sat down at a table right by... More

This is an old Friendly's, the tables were not cleaned until it had to be used. I ordered a Friendly's patty melt. It was gross, greasy, soggy and where is the hamburg patty. I did not complain because it looked like the waitress could care less.

Small restaurant with a weird arrangement of tables so if you dare, be careful where they seat you. There were dishes stacked on tables for the almost 30 minutes we were there. The carpet was filled with food, etc. They finally put us at a small table near the bathrooms and disappeared. We were waiting to ask to move but... More

We tried to have a quick dinner on our way back from a trip to the Thousand Islands. When we arrived many tables were uncleared, the floor behind the counter was filthy and the carpet was covered in food. Food was weak (even for Friendly's) ... unappetizing salad, kids food was clearly cooked from frozen. They were out of chocolate... More

Saw a chance to get an ice cream on a hot night. There was a line outside that was not being served, finally someone came over and told us their machine was broken. Most of us went inside and formed a line at the door, which they ignored again. So after 15 minutes of waiting: No ice cream.
