Again, our family and some of... More

I have tried to eat at this place twice over the past 2-3 months. They have one waitress for the whole place. The first visit we waited forever and never even stayed to get seated. The next visit we actually got seated but waited over 20 minutes and decided if it took even that long to attempt to order, how... More

She brought out check before ever taking the kids' ice cream order (which came with the meal). Then came back and grabbed the check assuming we'd paid. We asked about... More

The employees were very nice and it seemed clean. They should update this restaurant. The wood trim and panels should be re-stained or painted. This is something that would not take much to do. Even employees could fix these things a like this. They should also remove some of the booths and put in normal tables for larger groups. Otherwise... More

Small, diner style restaurant. Come here if you stay at some crappy hotel that offers a horrible version of continental breakfast. Overall, average food and overpriced for what it is. Interior needs updating.

How could this beloved franchise go downhill. Took my family there to enjoy a nostalgic childhood experience. Needless to say, time for my son to have a different childhood eatery. Tisk Tisk to the staff and owner

Went there for breakfast with friends who have been here before already. Typical American local breakfast bar with yummy choices of ice cream. I ordered stack of pancake, maple syrup and ices cream. It was very nice and fresh. Service is efficient and staff were friendly. Very good choice for a decent cheap breaky

We've been to this Friendly's many times over the years because my kids love it. The restaurant is very small and in need of some updating, but it's clean. The servers are always very nice, though some can be a bit forgetful, probably because the place is always very busy.The kids are always happy with their meals, and especially their... More
