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. The "golden fries" were great. Crinkled, crispy, and hot. The interior of this place could... 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.

Took my daughter's there for breakfast and from the moment we walked in to the moment we left the service was horrible. There were only two tables when we arrived and we stood waiting to be seated for over five minutes even though they were not busy. Server looked elderly and sat us saying she'd be back for our drink... More

You can count on Friendly's for an inexpensive meal. The menu is the same throughout the chain so you always know what you are getting.

We do not have Friendly's in our area, it is an inexpensive hit for both my children and the grand parents. Who doesn't love a sit down restaurant priced like fast food and top it off with ice cream.

Friendly's is pretty consistent wherever they are located. We had breakfast here and (for the time being) they have a half-price promotion that made the trip a bargain.

The food is good, wholesome, and filling. Due to the fact that we are "seniors" the added bonus of 10% off of our bill and a free happy ending sundae are a very nice perk! Thanks, Friendly's!

The place is empty, waitress got our order completely wrong. Then realized they didn't have what I wanted. Manager didn't bother to apologize. Family next to us had the same issue and waited over 45 minutes for their order. Waitress blamed it on the new computer system. We will never return.

Usually Friendly's is pretty good for us. But I ended up with a bad stomach ache. Also my husband didn't feel great either. We had hamburger dishes. It will be a while until we eat there again, not the best experience.

Thank lynda .
