“Really not ! But terrific ice cream.”
Reviewed 24 July 2014 via mobile

You know it's friendly's so you can't expect fine dining but just not enough . Ice cream is the best part of bring there.
Service not great but again can be forgiven . Kid friendly of course !
Also they should get upto speed with allergies .

They advertise it but are confused when asked questions .

“Above average service”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

Yes, it's Friendly's so most of us know what to expect. I eat at this Friendly's when I'm in town because it's kid friendly. The service is AWESOME. We even had great service at noon on a busy day!

“Great ice cream sundaes”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

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.

“Typical - no change from the old days here”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

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.
