Go in the morning as the breakfast menu is 1/2 off. We also love our waitress as she always has a smile and her service is great.

A friendly server, but she was impossibly slow and the food was over cooked. I ordered a BBQ chicken sandwich with waffle fries that were saturated and tasted bad. My dad ordered a fish and chips meal, but the fries were over cooked. My mom ordered a salad with fried chicken in it, but the lettuce was rusty and there... More

Don't bother. Service is very slow. They forget to bring parts of your order. Although apologetic and took off 10%, food was mediocre.

Haven' t been there since the do over.Did the former wardens of the Lackawanna prison take this establishment over. The walls are devoid of decorations and mostly white. Looks like a cafeteria.

As any Friendly's there was a big menu with all good prices. Good illustration. Courteous hostess and efficient server. The fish n chips meals were huge! The senior discount and senior sundae were much appreciated!

Food was ok but service was poor Took the hostess 10 mins to seat us when there were empty tables ( and a lot of tables that needed to be bussed). After seated it was almost 15 mins before a server came over. After we gave our order it was another 10 mins before our drinks were brought to the... More

Needed a familiar place near to grab a bite late and this was recognizable and convenient. Food was about typical not great but good and the service fine. If you wanted something special this is not the place. Always more of a family environment and nothing wrong with that.

What's really great about Friendly's is that no matter where you are, if you walk into a Friendly's , you are instantly transported home. It's the place that you know, are comfortable with and don't have to familiarise yourself worth the menu. The restaurant was clean and neat, the staff was professional.
