I was just looking for a cup of soup and sandwich and it was exactly what I wanted to carry out. Good food reasonably priced and the milk shake is so good and rich

Young waitress helpful and cheerful. Fairly standard food, emphasis on desserts. Portions large, UK guests could easily share a salad, and ice cream. They have lots of stuff for kids and signs indicate high community involvement. Music a bit loud.

I am going to write two reviews on different Friendly's tonight and this one is a good one. Friendly's is not known for its stellar customer service but this one in Laconia is pretty good. I had a hankering for an original Big Beef hamburg...More

I had the chicken sandwich from their $5.55 meal deal. The sandwich was the smallest I have ever been served at a restaurant. Chicken had a rubbery texture to it. The breading on the chicken fell right off. Worst chicken sandwich I have ever had....More

Always busy. Watch the soup, however, because it will be placed into the microwave and be delivered scorching for the mere mention it was cold at the start. Meals are prepared per order.
