The seats are ripped. The decor is dark and depressing. The rugs look like they are harboring years of collecting food, dirt, and grime. What was once a fantastic restaurant continues to be neglected. Hard to understand why the owners do not make improvements. Decor...More

Typical food, yummy sundaes, but service is just SLOW! This seems to be a common theme at any Friendly's. We rarely go just for this reason alone, when getting drinks takes forever or food takes way too long.

This might be the last time we visit this Friendly's. We had horrible service. The hostess couldn't even be bothered to seat us. Then our waitress couldn't even be bothered to take our orders. She even pawned us off on the manager and another waiter...More
