The meals got much smaller the last time I was here and they closed up shop. The kids love the ice cream and this is what kept us coming back - the food was all out of a bag.

This restaurant is no longer open, so there will be no food, service or atmosphere. I can not recommend it, you will leave hungry.

A Friendly's breakfast in Vermont was just as we expected - well-prepared and served by a friendly server. A bonus was that she found our lost glasses and had them ready when we came back to look for them!

We have no more Friendly's where I live and it was a treat to eat there. Good food and good value and of course great ice cream.

Ate cheese burgers and fries. Kids eat cheap mid-week. Can not eat at Friendly's without having ice cream. Will continue to go back for good food and service.

Menu is always extensive (maybe to a fault) at Friendly's, but you can always expect the same... food in a hurry, but not much more. Waitstaff at this location was really pleasant, so props to them! They seem to turn tables over really quickly, so...More

Friendly's has filed chapter 11 and is closing several stores in MA. They should close the ones in Manchester and Bennington too. The food is over priced and greasy. So expensive you can't afford the ice cream at the end!

One of the Friendly's chain that is well-represented in the New England area, this delivers exactly what you'd expect. There is a wide ranging menu covering breakfast, lunches and dinners as well as, of course their original raison d'etre, ice cream. No frills, just good...More

We ate here for our 1st time with some dear friends, for lunch. Beth was our server, she was VERY friendly/courteous. Food was cooked to our full enjoyment and our wait was NOT long at all.
