Sure hope something decent takes its place. Friendly's was a neighborhood staple for many years but it got a little noisy, a little sticky, and it was small by today's standards and probably made it tough to make a profit. Please - no more frozen...More

I hadn't been to a Friendly's in a LONG time because it always takes a million years to get your food but it has improved! The waitress was good, food was delivered fast and the it tasted yummy!

Still the best ice cream in the Washington area. Also the clam chowder is the best. The rest of the menu is OK.

We go to Friendly's about 2 or 3 times a month. At one time they had the worst service in the area....you would grow old waiting...BUT now, the service is friendly and quick. We mainly go when we have a craving for clam strips...I think...More
