Very slow service, and the food was not very good. The ice cream was fine, but there were many other places we could have gone instead.

We took a bus load of very hungry people and they were able to sit, serve and give good customer service on short notice. The food was good and reasonable in price. Of course the ice cream treats were the best way to end the meal and everyone indulged.

We dropped in to Friendly's after a trip to the Hershey Story on Sunday June 14, 2015. The restaurant was busy. We were seated quickly despite the crowd, which I found impressive. We don't have Friendly's in Minnesota, so I was impressed with the decor, cleanliness and variety of menu offerings. The portions are appropriately sized, which left enough room... More

Our waitress was friendly. The food was great and the prices were awesome. We're from NY and to have such a great dinner at a fraction of the price, you can't go wrong. It was down the road from where we stayed (Hershey Lodge) which made it even more convenient.

I expected more from this place. The food was greasy, but the desserts were ok. My stomach wasn't feeling well after. Service could be better as well.

We were passing through after catching the circus and were displeased with the operation. All the staff, with exception to our waitress, appeared to be under the age of 18. You could tell they didn't care and it manifested itself in numerous ways. --K itchen staff: Both our hamburger buns had grease finger marks on them. -- Dishwasher: All three... More

Service was very bad. Took long for the waitress to come that first time. It took her even longer to bring our drinks and when she finally did, she only brought them for half our table. We waited for almost 30 min for our food which consisted of three orders of Mac'n Cheese, one BLT and a salad... Then we... More
