After a short wait we were seated in two booths and the divider was removed. Dinner came rather quickly and my burger was as expected at a Friendly's. Ice cream was good, too.

The lobster roll was great and our other food was great but the waitress was not skilled and the service was slow. It took a long time to get service and when we did the order was improperly reported to the kitchen and although it was the waitress's fault she was mad at us for not accepting deep fried chicken...

Traditional "Friendlys" service and menu. A good place to relax and have some of your old time favorites. Don't forget the ice cream. Servers are hustling about and the meals come out quickly. You can usually eat for less than six dollars and the senior menu has something for everyone.

We stop frequently at this Friendly’s as we pass through Bennington on our way elsewhere. The bypass has cut down on customer traffic and we’re not sure the corporation will keep the place, but we hope it stays open. The menu is well-known and the wait/cook staff members are fine hosts and hostesses. Drinks come quickly and the overall service... More

The service was good- our waiter was friendly- we had to wait a while to get our check but the food was pretty good. Oddly, the ladies room smelled like root beer...?!

We arrived at 5:45 and waited 20 minutes to get seated even though there were several empty booths. Once we were seated the server took our order and we got our drinks fairly quickly and about 15 or more minutes to get our meal which was okay for a Friendly's meal. When we finished eating it was another 20 minutes... More

This Friendly's meets the standards of the chain for good food and courteous service, but the place has a drab (not worn) appearance. Also theirmenus are so tattered that they may be year's old (or business is so good, they have plain worn out). II good place to eat.

The food was not cooked, employees were not friendly, the portions were small for the money and the desserts look like mush with very little toppings

There were about as many customers as personnel but everyone was in their own little private world and our arrival was ignored for more than a reasonable time. At 5:30 in the evening waitresses were preoccupied with their own dinner breaks? A real shame as this used to be an enjoyable destination, especially with the loss of so many other... More
