I know these reviews aren't generally about location but I wouldn't recommend this as a "quick stop" off the Interstate. It's over a mile to get to and then you find that it's tucked in the back corner of a larger shopping area. The food quality was standard; nothing special and no "problems". The ice cream is always worth the... More

I've been to this Friendly's several times. The staff is always nice, although the hostess isn't always up front, so you may wait a minute or so. The food on the menu is burgers, sandwiches, breakfasts, and more. Of course, the specialty is ice cream, and that is always yummy. Prices are decent. I'll continue to go there.

Our waitress was wonderful. Her service was great! The hostess on the other hand was sooooo slow. She told us (party of 2) she had to clean a table and would be right back. 10 minutes later, other patrons came in and asked if we had been helped yet. The hostess took us to a table that was just cleaned,... More

Is the chain not watching this Friendly's? It's almost always empty, no matter what time I go in. Loved Friendly's since I was kid, but this one is definitely off. If one more waitress/counter clerk giggles and makes a statement about how "WE" women should not be eating ice cream, I'm going to walk out! You go to give yourself... More

Thought we could jump in and and out for a quick dinner. Think again. Nearly 40 minutes before we could get our dinner. I thought they must be butchering the cow for my burger. Now, with that said, the meals were tasty. Just very slow service. I asked our waitress a simple question: "How much is a Happy Ending Sundae?"... More

We should have know better than to eat at Friendly's but hunger outweighed the voice of reason. The food was even more wretched and greasy than I remember it from my last visit over a decade ago. I only gave this branch a poor rating (vs. terrible) because the service was good, a rarity in a Friendly's restaurant.

Place to get a meal with the family just off the highway a little food is acceptable, service depending on how busy or how much they want to work.

We had a party of six that arrived around 3:00 PM on Labor Day. Our wait was only about five minutes which gave the impression that it was not too packed. Our server, Nicole, was very pleasant. Actually, I would say everyone who came by the table was very friendly. They lived up to their brand name in that respect.... More

The interior has been completely redone. They have booths and those high tables where you have to sit on tall chairs to reach it. The menu was the standard offerings. The taste of the food was so-so, as was the service. However, they were open at 9:30 at night when many local places were closed or closing.
