Nice ambiance. My friend and I tried the coconut shrimp appetizer. I had the halibut special and she had the famous meatloaf. Food and service were great!

Found this place through Trip Advisor and it was great. Very friendly staff and great menu selections. The caramel banana pie was to die for. Lots of art on the walls which are also for sale. Nice atmosphere.

Regular at Mr. Friendly’s. Went tonight, it was again outstanding. Some restaurants get old and tired after awhile. Not Mr. Friendly’s. Great oyster appetizer, especially good “Friendly” salad and two fine entrees. Wonderful wine & cocktail. Didn’t have dessert, to full. Good time for all....More

We have been to Mr. Friendly's quite a bit. My favorite along with Motor Supply. We usually get the specials but my husband swears by their duck. Also the meatloaf is great!! Weekend is hard to get in but during the week is good time...More
