We had to wait over an hour & 1/2 to get our food after we orderd. It was so loud you could hardly hear your conversation at your table. The food was good & our server was good. Would we go back. Probably.

I have been several times to this location and my experience has been that the food tends to be ok and sometimes good. Nevertheless, the service is just plain aweful. The servers are not very well trained, they take a long time to get you a menu, serve water, take the order, etc.

I have eaten here many times. My favorites are the salmon and the chicken tenders. The food is consistently good but the prices are definitely comparable to the U.S. The mojitos are great - fresh lemon and mint. Very refreshing! The location is ideal. Also the air conditioning is a nice reprieve from the David heat.

I have always loved TGI Friday's but they just have too many choices for me. I have such a hard time deciding which delicious item to choose; I'm afraid I'm missing something else that might be better. The service is always great and the food is delicious.

My partner and I go to TGIF every couple of weeks. I am from the states. We enjoy it, the food is usually excellent. But on the 21st July I ordered Brushetta chicken and it was not the normal standards. The presentation of the food has always been good, but on this day it was great, it was average. Most... More

Firstly I have never been to a TGIF before, but if any of them are like the one here in David, Panama, don't waste your time or your money. Should have taken the warning when they said they were out of everything we kept ordering. When it finally came it was stale tortillas and very lousy service. The music (or... More

This is definitely a place that attracts gringos because they find something they expect.....something they are kinda used to. I guess I prefer to have more local like food. There were plenty of things folks would find in the USA. Some tasty. I found some of my selections to be much saltier that fare I had at TGIFridays in the... More

After spending the entire day, ordering products for our resort in Bocas, TGI was on the way home so we stopped. I fully well knew it was after 7 so they would be slow. I expected the place to not be busy, it was not busy, so I expected the service to be faster than normal. I ordered something easy,... More

The TGI's in David has similar food as the U.S. just not the same quality. We have stopped there probably 5 times in the two years we have been here, but were not impressed. They did have special prices on things advertised in the window, but we had to argue with management to get the discount. The hamburger was typical... More
