“Not so Friendly's”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 February 2013 via mobile

I have visited this Friendly's many times the food is consistently fine. It is always understaffed and crowded. As a result service is abominable. More disturbing is the fact that the place is an absolute gold mine and that the owner (s) don't put one penny back into the place. It is in desperate need of a thorough cleaning and a remodle. You might ask why I go back... Because the kids live the menu and the included ice cream.

“Great but pricy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 December 2012

My husband and I went to Friendly's and we had a nice experience. The 12.49 Chicken platter meal came with a lot of other items, like drinks hot and cold and sides and salad, unlimited refills on soda and then a happy ending ice cream. All in all, it was so delicious in every way, but to be honest, it's not something I would do on a weekly basis, only because of the price for the portions. But, I would most definitely do once in a while, maybe once a month maybe twice.

“Gross”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 January 2010

Walked right out the last time I was there. The place needs some serious updating and they need to get rid of that disgusting carpeting that has been there for as long as I can remember.
