I've been coming to this particular Friendly's location with family for almost my whole life. It's still passable, but nothing special these days. The servers are always nice, but the place just seems understaffed even when it's not busy. The portions seem quite a bit smaller than they were even just a few years ago. Some tables look dirty on... More

This place was close to our hotel so we decided to eat there. Place was pretty clean but very cold which I wasn't happy about but the food was delicious.

Went to this Friendly's last night about 5pm. The good point is the wait staff were very sweet and professional, also timely. The rest well..... As soon as you walk in you can smell the carpet, it's old and smelly. You can look into part of the kitchen and the floor was dirty and littered with straw paper covers and... More

Stopped here for a late lunch, the food and service was good. The waitress gave us the senior discount without even asking.

Very nice atmosphere. Good food and great service. Price was right. Seniors always get a discount. That worked out well for my mom. Lots on the menu to choose from. Of course the best is the ice cream.

Our waitress was nice but not overly friendly. Also we needed to ask for refills. Food service was slow. The ceiling vent dripped water right on me. I had to move my chair. There were plenty of enmity tables but they didn't offer to move us.

It took a while for us to get served. Had to ask for more coffee after the first cup and waiting 20 minutes. The food was less than average nothing special. We won't be returning.
