I had the fried chicken which is a big portion, a leg, wing, breast, and thigh, a classic buttermilk preparation. Of course everything comes with sides, beets, French fries, rolls, sugar donuts, coleslaw, cottage cheese, apple butter, green beans, corn. And to top it all of ice cream for dessert. One great classic family style meal.

Family style dining with individual entree and bowls of appetizers , vegetables and breads. Delicious crab cakes, large shrimp, fish, sugar biscuits and Hershey's ice cream for all! They also offer seasonal specials, carryout and a shop on their property. Beautiful country setting with great views, duck pond. Website is up to date. Family favorite for years.

It was quite a distance away, but my Mom wanted to come here for her birthday. Nothing fancy as far as ambience goes, but the food was OMG good, especially the crab cake and corn. I have never had corn so sweet. It was definitely worth the trip and will return when I can.

Everything about Friendly Farms is very good from the food to service, from the prices to the location. When you go in, you choose your main course for a set price and all the other courses are included. The starter consists of a range of dishes to share and if you run out, they bring you more.

We live near here so it's easy for us to go. We always get the crab cakes and they are worth every penny....big with almost no filler....family style eating and great views what's not to like. Make sure you visit the gift shop if you can.

Great restaurant. Prices are moderate. You get plenty of food prior to your main meal. Opportunity lies in the steaks. Stick to well done. Otherwise it's a struggle get anything less. On a quiet farm.

I have to satisfy my fried chicken craving with the best I've ever had! Never disappointed with the homemade quality and freshness at Friendly Farms. The place is always super clean, the staff well trained & cheerful and I enjoy the seasonal items to accompany my usual chicken dinner.

This was my 2nd time visiting the restaurant and the food was very good. The atmosphere of eating with family is something that I truly miss. The fresh vegetables were delicious and the ice cream....YUMMY
