Of all the restaurants in the mall, this one has the best food. Vegetables well-cooked, salad greens are fresh. Try to go to Happy Hour when you can get a great deal on appetizers. Note: it takes a while to get served. Be prepared to sit for about 20 minutes before the server gets there. But when they eventually do,... More

Went on a Tuesday night, place was just getting over the dinner rush and the staff was worn out. I think they were understaffed that night. Food was your typical Friday's fare, nothing special.

A friend invited me to TGIF for lunch. Has a beautiful atmosphere. The greeter was warm and inviting. The waiter was friendly. However served me the wrong app. But hey things happen. He was a great guy. Hope to come back soon.

Sometime TGIF can be good other times not so good. The one in West Orange, NJ was pretty good. Our server was really nice and helpful. We enjoyed the festive atmosphere of the place, it was the week before Christmas. The food was hot, tasty and good.

Watched a sporting event, mid afternoon. All appetizers were half price. Interesting menu, some descent draft beers

I know it's typically three strikes, but at this location, two was more than enough. My first visit was with a group and we waited over 25 minutes just to order and another 45 for them to bring our incorrectly prepared food. The wait staff was inattentive and had trouble taking the order, so it was not really a surprise... More

Endless Apps Family of 5. Service is slow. Food took 20-30 mins to come out each time we ordered an app. The servers do not have a sense of urgency. Kept getting confused with order or just forgot to get what was asked for. Then half of them were just standing around. Seemed more concerned about bar area instead of... More
