I paid with my debit card and my waitress Andrea added an extra $5 tip to my bill, AFTER I gave her a 20% cash tip! Check your bank receipts if you plan to eat here or pay the bill with cash only!

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.

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...More
