The food at Friendly's is average at best. Nothing special at all. Overall, the menu is overpriced. The service is slow and not very friendly (ironic, isn't it?) The saving grace for Friendly's is their ice cream, which is really good and reasonably priced.

Came here with the family for early dinner and ice cream. Restaurant was mostly empty but service was still very slow. Staff seems poorly trained, our waitress was impolite, and I saw a lot of folks standing around looking unorganized. My burger was partially burned...More

We went late after visiting Hershey Park for the day. After moving to the south, we always have to visit a Friendly's when we come to town. The kids had looked forward to it all day and had high expectations. They were sad to see...More

We found this wonderful place by accident-We were starving! They had a meal with dessert under $6.00 which was astonishing. I got the double cheeseburger with onion rings and it was just right. My husband got a melted cheese with turkey, again, delicious. We topped...More
