This means the restaurant is pretty well liked.
Out of all the restaurants my children ask to go to, Friendlys is probably the one they ask the most for. They frequently walk around singing the Friendly's commerical song and they just love it there. It is a laid back, casual place where families are the main customers.
The menu offers a pretty good selection and I don't recall a time I ever went and couldn't find something I wanted. I personally enjoy their salads the most while my husband is a big fan of their burgers. The servings are above average size and we always end up taking a few goodie boxes home with us.
The kids of course always find something they like to eat and their favorite are the free sundaes. They normally don't eat most of the sundaes but they come free with the meal so they just have to get them. There are also quite a few adult meals that come with free desserts as well, usually whatever is the special that month.
The deserts are really rich so beware, I doubt they are anything near regular calories. They have a good selection of them and they taste wonderful but they are certainly not good for you. I suggest if you going to get one, split it up with the family.
The atmosphere is relaxing and busy. Families are usually the main patrons and sometimes there are screaming kids about. They seem to stay rather busy around meal times so sometimes it can be a little bit of a wait in order to get a table but the kids love it so it is worth it. The colors are nice and bright as well, and the booths are larger and comfortable. They accept larger groups and we go here normally if the extended family (and all the children!) are going to be going out to dinner/lunch with us.
The wait staff is touch and go though, as they employ mostly younger adults/teenagers. They are friendly enough and serve your food correctly and quickly but they can be known to drop stuff. I did have an experience not too long ago when one tipped over a bowl of hot soup on her tray and if it wasn't for my quick hands it would have poured all over my young daughters head. She was very apologetic and sincere but of course it still upset me to a degree as it could have really harmed my child.
We have asked for a differnt waitress/waitor before however and they never give us any grief over it. Because we normally have so many children with us we like a more experienced server who has less possibilities of mistakes like the previous one. If we see a younger one assigned to us we simply talk to the manager and explain the situation and it is taken care of, no problems or anything.
I would consider this place just like any other regular restaurant really, like Denny's. Its a good place to get an inexpensive meal that is family friendly. The kids always have a blast and that matters a lot when your family going out to eat. Make sure to request crayons and an activity page if you don't get one, they can be life savers and they do have them. Overall, nothing out of this world, but useful none the less.
