After all these years, Friendly's has closed its doors. All those parents who took the family out after the Spring band recital will have to fine another place to go.

Dirty and old. The servers all smell like cigarettes, they are clearly not busy so I could only imagine how long the food sits out. Nothing seemed fresh. The only people win the place and our waitress kept disappearing.

Almost back to how it used to be! Wait staff excellent, very pleasant even when presented with a large family group with varied nutritional requirements. Love the ice cream!

I actually used to manage a Friendly's Restaurant about 30 years ago - so I know a little bit about how they're run. this was by FAR the worst one I've ever been to. 90% empty, food took 45 minutes - came out in dribs...More

Worst restaurant in the world don't go here it took 1 hour go get an advertiser and an other hour for the main dish. I when to so many friendly's and this is the worst of all of them.

Place was right in front of hotel, couldnt resist. Service was horrible.I waited 20 min for a refill on a drink i had asked about before & was forgotten. Waitress was upbeat and pleasant but slow and had other agendas, like socializing with locals.
