The food was pretty good, but it was a little pricey. Their ice cream was delicious! They said we could have brought our own cake for our birthday celebration, which was a nice option.

Friendly restaurant has been around a long time but it is still one of the nicest places to eat at a friendly price. The restaurant was very clean and the staff was fast and pleasant. I was very impressed with the menu, especially the desert menu. Still one of the best places in town.

Love the Tuna Melt, and the Chicken Tenders Platter. Great well done crispy French fries without salt,. Being seniors, we get the Happy Ending Sundae, but now it is a single scoop dish of good ice cream. The menu has changed with the times, but the standards are still there. Enjoy.

Right next to our hotel, LaQuinta. Walked over got two chicken and apple salads to go. They gave us some extras I asked for at no charge, packets of ketchup for my kid and empty bowl so I could microwave some left over fries from our last meal. Note there were some menu changes so online menu was out of... More

We stopped at this exit because there was a mall hoping to find a decent place for dinner. I generally enjoy meals at the Friendly's chain but this restaurant left me disappointed. The restaurant needs to be upgraded. Our table's Formica top was worn through in places. I ordered Fish and Chips and then was offered fries or cole slaw.... More

The fish was good, not great but our waitress was superb. The downside that ruined the emal was the number of screaming kids in the place. My wife refuses to go back to a friendly's as a result of this visit.

This may have closed in the meantime. I'm unsure, as I haven't been to the Oakdale Mall too many times during the past year or so. But on the off-chance it's still there, I figured this review would be helpful. I'm not a huge fan of "Friendly's" restaurants. But I'll eat there if I need to. So, while at the... More

If this is the restaurant inside the mall I believe it has closed, but if it is the one across from the mall it is very good. The service is very good and the food is always good and done well. The cost is average and the ice cream is one of their big sellers. Love the Jim Dandy .... More
