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.

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

Stopped here on our way from Coronado to Boquete. There isn't much along that terrible highway so it was a relief to find anything at all. $48 USD is far too expensive for a glass of wine, a beer, a burger and a wrap. Especially in Panama! Good was OK but not great...typical chain food. Service was just OK. We... More

Probably one of the better chains. They are pretty consistant with a good menu choice. The burgers are good and a nice range of dishes for almost everyone. Prices are reasonable and service good too. Nicely fitted out too and very conveniently situated. Would recommend for a meal if in David. Usual cleanliness that you find in all TGI Fridays.

This restaurant is a typical chain but that means the prices are not Panamanian prices. Especially in David, which has much more reasonable restaurant prices than Panama City. It is usually quite noisy as the music is very loud. Food is okay but nothing special. Nice desserts which many Panamanian restaurants do not have.
