I like Friendly's restaurants, so we didn't mind going here for lunch. There is noting special about this place and you can visit almost any Friendly's and get the same food and the atmosphere is usually the same. It's good and they have decent ice...More

First we waited quite awhile for no apparent reason. Our server greeted us and brought us our drinks. After that it was downhill. My order came not as I ordered. This was followed by overcharging us and not telling us that my husband's meal was...More

Had an OK lunch at Friendlys. It was the day after Christmas and busier than expected, so service suffered. Not holding that against them. But good overall was pretty mediocre. Not bad but not as good as expected.

Food was good, but the service was poor due to lack of staff. Upon entering, there is no Hostess booth and you just stand there guessing what your suppose to do. We stood there for about 8 minutes before someone walked out of the kitchen...More

Building dirty. Food disgusting. Wait staff terrible. Will personal not eat at this establishment again. Chicken over cooked, dry and not edible as well as the entire meal. What one person considers good another may not. Terrible all around.
