This Friendlys is simply average. Nothing spectacular, but clean and courteous service. Food was good and warm. Not expensive. That said, nothing stuck out as amazing either.

I came here on the suggestion of someone else. It wasn't a bad lunch by any means. I got the Chicken BBQ melt and had a sundae afterwards. Everything was very good, and the service was great. Don't come expecting fine dining. It's a nice...More

It's all about the ice cream! We had our "dinner" here but, being the grown ups that we are, we went straight for the ice cream menu. I have long loved the Reese's Pieces Sundae and can't get it in the Atlanta area (no Friendly's)....More

Went to eat a lite snack and ice-cream Sundaes. Loved that the Reese’s Pieces sundae came in two different sizes. Waitress was very helpful, and they will give you free samples of their different ice-cream flavors if you ask.

The service was great, the food was great and the ice cream was great! Food was fast and tasty. I will say that it was freezing in the restaurant, making it a little hard to enjoy the ice cream.
