“went for the grandchildren”
Reviewed 28 August 2013

I am not a fan of Friendly's- but the kids wanted to go on last day of school vacation. I had Pastrami melt that was so so- My wife likes to eat slow and she felted rushed. The kids enjoyed the build your own Sundae. You pick a ice cream and 3 toppings. They bring the toppings in a small cup and you put them on.

It is very clean now and the food is much better in taste and portion. Staff is also much friendlier. Will go back

“Yuck!”
Reviewed 27 July 2012

The ice cream had ice crystals in it and service wasn't 'friendly' at all. Ice cream flavours are just average.

“What Happened?”
Reviewed 20 May 2012

Been a couple weeks since last visit. Not a soul in the restaurant that i recognized. Apparently the entire staff & management has been replaced by a batch of 20 somethings with high pitched whiny voices. The food was what was expected & the staff was OK. But the coffee, UGH!. I have had better day old coffee at 3:am in the ready room of an Aircraft carrier. Absolutely the worst coffee I have never drunk. I even spit out the first sip. If coffee is important to you at breakfast, then risk getting a speeding ticket as you get as far away from this stuff as you can.
