“As the name implies, this is a very friendly restaurant”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

The waitress was SUPERB. Having never been in one of these restaurants, I didnt know what to expect. The waitress went over many items on the menu, explained how everything was made, even suggested the Reuben, which i ordered and it was AMAZING. Wish we had these in Tennessee.

“Not there anymore, and that is too bad.”
Reviewed 7 September 2013 via mobile

A dependable place, for family dining. When you wanted faster food without the grease of real fast food, but still actually food, unlike what ever it is they try and serve people at 'The Mex'.

“No longer there”
Reviewed 6 August 2013

In 2012 Friendly's underwent a massive overhaul and a number of their restaurants were closed as a result. This is one of them. Now it's a Governor's Restaurant, part of a small Maine restaurant chain.

“New England Chain”
Reviewed 8 July 2013

This place is similar to Governor's....not quite a greasy spoon, but not quite a Chili's or Applebee's either. Unfortunately, while Governor's has amazing desserts to lift it out of average-ness, Friendly's is just standard cookie cutter chain food.
