We've eaten at various Friday around the country and they're all about the same, average food and drinks at moderate prices. Service for us has always been fair to very good and the same was true for this Friday's in the Villages. Unfortunately, this location suddenly closed in November 2013 and there's no plans to re-open. Many TGIF's are closing... More

Have been a frequent patron of Friday's for about 4 years. The quality of service and food have gone downhill steadily. Frequent turnover of staff has left the bar without efficiency and character. On a recent visit to the bar there were 4 people opposite my party of 4. It took nearly 7 minutes for us to be greeted and... More

Wait staff is a little slow on getting food out or the cook is slow in the kitchen but overall a good experience for casual dining. Try the Jack Daniel's Burger for a little kick in the burger department. Pricing is a tad high but the rent is probably a tad higher in this location.

I'm a member of their dining club (free, and get points for $$ spent). Get a free dinner about every 6 meals or so - a very good deal. Fridays does have quite good food, and their Jack Daniels entrees is wonderful - esp the FlatIron steak. Hate to see the sodium levels, but - yum. Service is so-so, and... More

Four of us decided to try this TGIF. The place had only about 5 tables occupied at 1:00 PM First contact with server took about 15 minutes. After drinks arrived we ordered appetizers and lunch. Waited 45 minutes for apps to come out. She told me mine did not come out as it should and another was being prepared. (Flatbread)... More

Stopped in about 5 pm while visiting the Sumpter Landings at the Villages. Did not wait for a booth as requested but was puzzled by a couple of things .PUZZLE #1: The hostess said "one moment and I'll clean one off for you" when the next one was available and all set up? Waitress was pleasant. Ordered the salmon platter... More

Went to TGIF while visiting "the villages" on 4/14/13 about 5pm. Service was sooooo slow. Regular wait person had a trainee and seems to have him do all the work without much training. She, the regular wait person, spent her time talking to table and other workers and did nothing for our table. Ordered a salad and instead of a... More

It's been a along time since I'd been in a Fridays, and my husband and I decided to stop in last night. It was disappointing on all the levels that matter to me. Service was slow, and half-hearted, and the food was below average. The upside is that we did the $10 deal, so we didn't spend much on the... More
