I appreciated the waitress offering to to serve me a grilled chicken sandwich instead of fried and was glad to have the option of broccoli instead of fries. The chicken sandwich was juicy and the grilled bun was nice. I would have given a higher rating except for the long hair my husband pulled from his sandwich (didn't belong to... More

I paid with my debit card and my waitress Andrea added an extra $5 tip to my bill, AFTER I gave her a 20% cash tip! Check your bank receipts if you plan to eat here or pay the bill with cash only!

After a short wait we were seated in two booths and the divider was removed. Dinner came rather quickly and my burger was as expected at a Friendly's. Ice cream was good, too.

The lobster roll was great and our other food was great but the waitress was not skilled and the service was slow. It took a long time to get service and when we did the order was improperly reported to the kitchen and although it was the waitress's fault she was mad at us for not accepting deep fried chicken...

Traditional "Friendlys" service and menu. A good place to relax and have some of your old time favorites. Don't forget the ice cream. Servers are hustling about and the meals come out quickly. You can usually eat for less than six dollars and the senior menu has something for everyone.

We stop frequently at this Friendly’s as we pass through Bennington on our way elsewhere. The bypass has cut down on customer traffic and we’re not sure the corporation will keep the place, but we hope it stays open. The menu is well-known and the wait/cook staff members are fine hosts and hostesses. Drinks come quickly and the overall service... More

The service was good- our waiter was friendly- we had to wait a while to get our check but the food was pretty good. Oddly, the ladies room smelled like root beer...?!

We arrived at 5:45 and waited 20 minutes to get seated even though there were several empty booths. Once we were seated the server took our order and we got our drinks fairly quickly and about 15 or more minutes to get our meal which was okay for a Friendly's meal. When we finished eating it was another 20 minutes... More

This Friendly's meets the standards of the chain for good food and courteous service, but the place has a drab (not worn) appearance. Also theirmenus are so tattered that they may be year's old (or business is so good, they have plain worn out). II good place to eat.
