We especially chose to eat at Friendly's because we so enjoyed their ice cream desserts in other cities we've visited. The restaurant was very busy but we didn't have to wait long for a table. The food is good but the service is a bit slow.

Friendly's is advertising a change in their approach. Well not this one. We were left (along with many others) almost 10 minutes at the front door with no greeter or any sign that there was a person in charge. The rear section was closed off most likely because of lack of staff.

Our server was lovely. She was, however, very overworked by what seemed to be a dysfunctional kitchen. Trying to explain to other tables "the machine broke" when their dessert was so late they were drumming the table.

Our food was ok, but the new menu wasn't very attractive. The kids menu was ok but predictable.

There were booths left uncleaned while customers waited for seating. One hadn't been touched in the whole time we were there.

Friendly's problems have always been fatty foods and overworked servers. This one continued that tradition.

We had breakfast here. It is decent and I have found that Friendlies seems to be consistent anywhere we have eaten. The wife's omelet was good and the home fries decent. I had the red Velvet waffle. It was interesting, but traditional waffles are more to my liking. Overall, a good place to stop if you can't find anything else that is a known location.

Two other restaurants nearby we really wanted to visit we full on a Sunday night... So we decided to gamble on this place...

Don't.

Other than ice cream, there is nothing half decent here and the place is filthy.

Pass for sure.
