“Not Impressed”
Reviewed 8 April 2013

The last time my wife and I ate at TGI Friday's in Altoona we found very little positive to say. The service was slow and considering we were 2 of 3 people in the entire bar area, there were no excuses to be had. The food took a long time to come as did the drinks. The food was cold, probably because it sat back in the kitchen for a while. I hope that management picks up the service a bit.

Went here with the hubby, had a gift card for appetizer only. Ordered sesame jack strips--when they arrived there was 8 chicken nugget sized pieces of chicken on the plate. Last time we were there the plate was full. Asked a passing waitress why the portion was so small and she said they are all weighed now. 8 nuggets of chicken for $9.69. Crazy! Our actual waitress seemed miserable. No smile, no introducing of herself, did the bare minimum. Wish I could have tipped the girl that answered our question about the appetizer because to lessen the blow of the meager portion and high price she slipped us another appetizer card. Sadly, we probably won't go back to use it.

“Typical Fridays”
Reviewed 18 March 2013

This was a typical Fridays. The menu (including the beverage menu) was varied. Our service was just ok - but it was a busy Friday evening. We did not get exactly what we ordered but the wait staff did try to rectify the issues. Overall - ok.

“Service with a Smile!!”
Reviewed 16 February 2013

We had just left Longhorn due to the Service and ran down the road to TGIF's, walked thru the doors -Hostess smiled and asked how many, we asked if we could sit at the high tables, she said " sure I'll follow you pick one you would like." Right away the Bartender came over asked for our drinks and gave us a chance to look at the menu. We looked around and the place was busy and we could see our Bartender was also busy. She took very good care of us and was terrific!! Thanks TGIF, oh and the food was also very good!
