I've always felt I can count on a Friendley's for dependability. You know what you're going to get, at what quality and price. This one lived up to my expectations.

Do not go for breakfast at 7 am opening time at the Framingham Friendly's since they will either not be open or the coffee and grill are not yet ready to serve customers. I tried on three different occasions and all failed.

Although the restaurant was 1/2 full, and there were at least two managers and 3-4 servers (at 3:30pm), we were not greeted or acknowleged for several minutes - even though we saw several glance our way. When we were finally seated, there was no silverware on the table, but we assumed it would be brout when we ordered. We waited... More

I had sworn off Friendly's due to bad service & frozen food. I heard about the changes coming out of bankruptcy so i gave it another try. The booths are new and everytime the person in the booth behind you moves, so do you. My seatback is at an 75 degree angle right now. It took a water 10 minutes... More

This is a large chain restaurant that has revamped its restaurants, consolidated, and closed many of the Friendly's in the area. So, this restaurant is much more crowded than it used to be. Service is very nice. Food - We had breakfast, which was o.k. as breakfasts go. But as you can see, the amount is very different from what... More
