Had dinner there. Our server was professional - VERY professional. She did not smile once when at our table, and WE were being nice! A "Friendly" smile makes the meal nicer (and the tip, too!). Our orders were accurate when received; the clam chowder was...More

We waited for 30 minutes for two ice cream sundaes. This place will never change, SLOW service, never any sense of any urgency whether there are 2 or 10 people in line.

Conveniently located off Interstate 95 at Exit 90, Friendly's is a New England tradition. Great ice cream and sandwiches. Stop for a quick break enroute to your next destination.

It's the old, established chain. But it's solid travel food. And the ice cream is classic. Not too creamy, sweet enough. Fabulous sundaes. I always return. Like it better than Drawbridge Ice Cream in the center of Mystic.

Stopped here with my husband and 2 kids for lunch. Food came out quickly, and the prices were great. Our server was pleasant and attentive. And, of course, the ice cream was yummy! It wasn't the shiniest, cleanest place in the world, but if was...More
