My husband and I eat here every Saturday. The service is mostly good though there is a Saturday radio breakfast club that sometimes delays things. I have a special order that they gladly make every week. The food is always good though it's not always as hot as I like. Still the coffee is wonderful and I enjoy the view... More

Have went here numerous times the staff is always friendly. The food is warm and we always make it different then what the menu says. They have no problem with changing our order to suit our needs. Good food excellent service that is why I have been going there for years

Been here before, and I'd say it's about the same experience every time, so yay for consistency? Food is always pretty good. Service is always a little on the slow side but not like waiting hours on end slow. Seating can be tricky if you have a big party, as we always do when we're in town. They only have... More

Went here recently with my mother who was in from out of town. Did not eat a meal there but went for the ice cream instead. Very good portions. Our waitress Jessica was very good and friendly. Would definitely go back again for ice cream and probably for a meal next time also.

On the way home we saw a sign for Friendly's on the highway. Haven't been to one for along time so decided to stop for dinner. The restaurant is about 10 minutes off the highway. Which is farther than I thought it would be. Waited 20 minutes before anyone came to our table to get our drink order. While we... More

Actually very nice service, but the food wasn't up to friendly's usual standard the day we visited. Tomato soup was bitter, which was weird. Fries were also odd tasting and small portion.

ok, unfriendly is a little unkind, but nothing worked out here on a busy sunday morning... busy, but not jammed... food took forever and when it did arrive, it was either cold (eggs) or uncooked (fries)... couldn't even get bill to get out... ice cream serving is very good by an enthusiastic young man named Nelson, I believe, but restaurant...

My husband and I were meeting my sister and her husband there for Sunday breakfast. The first thing I noticed, was the outside wasn't very neat and the inside, was a little on the messy side too. We ordered and waited at least 45 minutes to an hour for our food. We had all drunk our coffee and hadn't been... More
