Easy to get to with plenty of parking. The only drawback to this visit was the long time it took to be seated since it wasn't crowded. Once at the table though, things got better. I've eaten at Friendlys since I was a kid and...More

Great ice cream but average food at a good price. Always a hit with the kids, this is a great, easy place for a family to eat. It's not classy, and the service might be average to below average, but generally everyone leaves happy. Come...More

The service was great, the food was great and the ice cream was great! Food was fast and tasty. I will say that it was freezing in the restaurant, making it a little hard to enjoy the ice cream.

Took the kids here for dinner on a not-so-busy night, yet service was slow. The food was good and our server was very nice, but seemed new to waitressing. I'm not a fan of the checkout /game kiosk on the table.

Located directly across from the Hershey Lodge, this Friendly's offers a great alternative to some of the more pricey dining options in the area. The location has been recently remodeled inside and is very clean, which is impressive given the amount of traffic the restaurant...More
