Not usually a fan of "chain" restaurants but need to stop and took a chance on TGI Friday's. We were pleasantly surprised. The host staff and wait staff were friendly and attentive. Changed our table upon request without any hassle. The menu was typical for a chain but the salads were especially fresh - Chipotle chicken and Cobb salads were... More

We arrived at 12:30 expecting the place to be packed. It wasn't. We asked to sit in the bar to avoid a table next to a family with young children. Previous experience has them climbing and jumping and yelling in the booth next to us. The bar was nice and relaxing. We ordered what we thought was the all you... More

I was extremely surprised at the wait we had at this location. Imagine an hour wait for 2 salads, burger, and sampler, REALLY!! And we ordered all drinks along with food. Our waitress checked on us, we asked for the check and she noticed that the bar hadn't delivered his beer. She stated that she could see it from there.... More

We stopped in here for lunch today in order to try something different than our usual stop in Watertown. It was around 12:30pm when we arrived, we were seated promptly and our drink order was taken. My wife and I had decided on what we were going to have and proceeded to order. My wife wanted the Jacks Sliders and... More

Many many years ago.... I worked for TGI Friday's in Lake Buena Vista Florida. I can't believe how terrible this location is compared to what I know about this company. The last time I went to this location, I told myself "never again..." but I like potstickers and my husband talked me in to it. On that visit...a Saturday afternoon...... More

Stopped in for dinner with my mom and friend. We all order a drink and all were delicious - Blood orange and pina colada. Our server was attentive and quick to take our order (drinks were a little slow). We have the bourbon chicken, chicken club (good but bread was VERY hard), and strawberry fields (amazing!). Highly recommend the tomatoes... More

Our Fridays has closed down, so it was good to find this one while we were traveling. We missed having the green beans. Service was a bit slow, but she was friendly & tried to keep us happy.

I eat here at least 2 times a month. I always use my Stripes reward card so the points add up quickly. Everything is good but the ribs are just about perfect!

We were not overly hungry so on a Friday night we sat in the bar and ordered drinks and an appetizer platter to share. The server barely moved her feet when she visited our table she would speak to us on route to the kitchen or another table and didn't always wait for an answer. I tried to ask for... More
