Two of my nearby Friendly's (Barn Plaza-Doylestown, and Warminster) both have the dumb clock thing in the middle too and they are always broken! angry I really don't like eating at either of these locations because they always seem so dark and "dirty-feeling", even though both were remodeled in the late 90's.

I like the new prototype they are using though (like the other Doylestown, PA friendly's by the Acme). The place is really clean feeling and bright.

New(er) building design (reference):

No I've never been to that one, and thats really too far away, especially with the gas prices these days. I would probably eat there if I was going in that general direction though. We switch off between the Warminster Friendly's (very small and we usually have to wait), and the two Doylestown ones, depending on where we are closest to.

I was surprised to see that Friendly's closed it's Brewer, Maine restaurant ... and i later saw the one across the river in Bangor also closed!!  The two locations had the same style.  They are still listed on Friendly's website.

Friendly's reminds me a lot of the way Howard Johnson's used to do business.  They had the signature red roof with white stripes and often were located in old HoJo buildings back in the 1980.s

Friendly's in Salem NH, located in a plaza formerly anchored by Zayre.    The style of the building is very Zayre, especially the roof shape.

I really don't know.  Maybe they were operated by a local owner and he decided to close...  Then why Friendly's did not bought the restaurants back or something...  

And here is a picture of the Friendly's in South Portland.

I noticed that Friendly's has had different building styles over the years, much like Howard Johnson's. There first was a Colonial that went perpendicular from the road(see BillyGr's shot of Pittsfield, Mass). Then there was a Mansard style in the 70's. Then they went back to the Colonial style, only this time it ran parrallel to the road.

I didn't do this on purpose ( I swear) but it works for Amesman's post above:

1st Photo: East Greenbush location on Route 4 (1/4 mile from 9/20 intersection) - This is the colonial facing the road style
3rd Photo: Former location on State Street (Rt 5) in Niskayuna - now a sandwich shoppe (Same design)
2nd Photo: Latham location on Route 7 about 1/2 mile from Northway Exit 6.  This appears to be the mansard style.
4th Photo: Former Delaware Ave location in Albany - This sits in front of the plaza with the Eckerd/Advance Auto(former Wheels) - it would be the Colonial parallel to the road (Delaware Ave is to the left of the picture - I am in the plaza parking lot).  Of course, in this location that's the only way it would have fit anyway.  The still have a store on Delaware Ave in Delmar - my picture didn't come out though - but it's a Colonial facing the road (Style #1).

you got it right BillyGr! That's exactly what I'm talking about. Other mansards in the area are in Schenectady on Nott Terrace, and one in Glens Falls. All others seem to follow the first or third design.

This one was damaged a few years back by fire, which was the reason for the remodel.  It still lokks similar (though the tower is something new).

The photo is an (admittedly bad) shot of the Friendly's in Troy Plaza in Troy on Route 7 (Hoosick Street).  This plaza also had an Ames (now Big Lots) and Price Chopper (Now Save a Lot).

There was also a Friendly's in Riverside, NY (near Corning) as well as at the Arnot Mall in Big Flats. I have many fonds memories of having lunch there with my folks. They used to have a kid's meal special that included a sundae. Oh.. those Reese's Pieces sundaes were soo good. And the peanut butter sauce.. *drool* :P

The first is the Bennington location - on Route 7 south of the main intersection - a smaller, road facing colonial.

2nd is the Western Ave location - again, just below Crossgates.  This is a parallel colonial.

3rd is the Wolf Road location - this faces the road.

4th is the Central Ave (Albany) location - between Everett Rd & Westgate plaza on the opposite side.  I guess this is a parallel, even though the door faces the road, the main building is parallel.

5th is the Lenox (MA) store - On Route 7/20 - it is a parallel building (the road is off to the right of the photo).

6th is the Pittsfield (MA) location - It is at the intersection of Routes 8 & 9.  Hard to tell, as roads pass at least 2 sides of this one.

Last is the North Adams location on Route 2 - another hard one - basically parallel but with the door on the front
