Expensive but did the job

I've been going to TGI's for years since the one in the Jam Factory in the 90s was the hottest thing in town. I stopped going a while ago as I felt id gone past TGI's and the prices of the food didn't reflect the service received. The quality had always been fine but the pricing was expensive in... read more

We were regular patrons of TGI when it was part of Doncaster Shoppingtown. After several years in which it was relocated at this centre, we have been back twice. On our first trip back a few months ago, the service was reasonable, but not great. The food was not as tasty as it used to be, but ok. We decided... More

We have always liked coming to TGI's at Doncaster. We have been regulars for at least 18 years and even with its move upstairs, we have been back a few times since it reopened late last year and have been generally happy with the place. We know it is always more pricier than other restaurants, however the ribs are generally... More

Very disappointing visit last weekend. Food was very average for the price. Cheap fried crappy food. We all felt sick after our meals. Lots of chips with average burgers and sandwiches. Place was really busy so im not sure what the attraction is with this place?? close to the movies is the convenience that's all. We wont be back. Poor... More

Went to TGI Friday for lunch with friends while on a trip to Melbourne. Having eaten at TGIs in the states I had high expectations and I was not disappointed. Service was fast and for the most part invisible which I love although every time I needed a refill on my drink the waitress would appear like she was psychic.... More

What a shame that this restaurant does not have too many good reviews as our experience couldn't be more different. We had the sampler for starters, and the Texas Burger, Calamari Salad and Chicken Fingers with Cheesy Mash for our mains. They were all very tasty and served in generous portions. The service was also very friendly. The staff were... More

We go to Southland and find the steak delicious but expensive. With the Entertainment Book, it is a good pre-movie restaurant.

This is a good place to go to for a treat every now and then due to the prices. The food is great especially the burgers selection, they are big in portion so good value for money and tastes great.
