Service was tar pit slow. Servers were unresponsive and were too busy having fun in the kitchen versus serving customers. Food was not good. Had to go into the kitchen to ask staff for water and sundae. Sat for 35 minutes waiting for our check...More

I have always gone there for ice cream, but the food and service were a disappointment. Good parking, great location. Lacks intimacy. I see hardly any children there for an icecream place.

This is your basic Friendly's. The food and ice cream are good. Food came hot and quick, ice cream was served fast. Service was friendly and fast. Just like the Friendly's experiences you've had at other good restaurants in this chain. Recommended.

Friendly isn't the same. It has changed. I think they need to find employees who want to work and care about customer service.

While I loved going to the Friendly's in Security Mall as a kid, I loathe taking my son to this restaurant now. Lackluster, unhealthy food. Stale, outdated decor with a faint smell of smoke from the days they allowed it inside this restaurant. Even the...More
