New England-based chain serves affordable diner food and ice cream treats in a homey, family-friendly atmosphere..
Friendly's opened its first location in 1935, and thanks to red vinyl booths and an old-time vibe, many of its 500-plus locations still feel rooted in that era. While nobody's ever mistook Friendly's signature ice cream for Ben & Jerry's, the restaurant does deserve acclaim for its Fribbles (extra-thick frappes) and inexpensive sundaes. Straightforward breakfast platters are served in the mornings only, while standard diner fare (tuna melts, beef burgers) is offered day and night.
Un-Friendly's :(. Absolutely the worst dining experience you will ever find is here. We sat down, the waitress was slow getting to us, she gave us no water, served us our food with no silverware, and on top of that totatlly messed up our orders and then somehow managed to screw the bill up. What made it so bad is that she seemed like she really didn't care either. It's one thing to at least try, or seem like you are trying and mess up rather than not care at all like she was. I didn't even stay for ice cream I was so disgusted. I spoke to the manager on my way out...It was no use. The manager himself was some nasty foreigner who didn't know how to talk to people the right way either. I don't know how this place stays in business the way they run things there...It must be all the take out ice cream orders.
