It's all about the ice cream! We had our "dinner" here but, being the grown ups that we are, we went straight for the ice cream menu. I have long loved the Reese's Pieces Sundae and can't get it in the Atlanta area (no Friendly's)....More

Went to eat a lite snack and ice-cream Sundaes. Loved that the Reese’s Pieces sundae came in two different sizes. Waitress was very helpful, and they will give you free samples of their different ice-cream flavors if you ask.

Ate here while attending a conference across the street at the Lodge. Typical Friendly's food and the ice cream was good.

Easy to get to with plenty of parking. The only drawback to this visit was the long time it took to be seated since it wasn't crowded. Once at the table though, things got better. I've eaten at Friendlys since I was a kid and...More

The service was great, the food was great and the ice cream was great! Food was fast and tasty. I will say that it was freezing in the restaurant, making it a little hard to enjoy the ice cream.

They have good food but their customer service could use a bit of help. I had to invoke a manager of get a table open near the entrance for my handicapped wife.

Took the kids here for dinner on a not-so-busy night, yet service was slow. The food was good and our server was very nice, but seemed new to waitressing. I'm not a fan of the checkout /game kiosk on the table.

We arrived 5 minutes before breakfast was over and they turned us away and decided they would end early when we had a special needs family member that only ate breakfast foods. Wait staff was also very snobby... we needed up waiting 15 min with...More
