We struggled to find restaurants that were open after 8.30 in Fresno very bizarre!! TGI's saved the day, we had a lovely waitress Yvonne and meals were good, service good and Blue Raspberry Slush delicious!! Nachos skillet enough for 4 people. A good experience, thanks for being open!!

This was an awful meal -- meat was tough and overcooked, vegetables were reminiscent of my mother's in the 50's: macerated mush. Server could not have been less interested in our needs, could not attract his attention to get water refilled. We should have eaten down the street at the hospital we'd just left -- and I'm a nurse, I... More

We had great food and outstanding service. Our waiter really took care of our three kids traveling with us. I would highly recommend the restaurant for both food and service. The manager was sincerely interested in our business. We will return again.

We made the mistake of going during Happy Hour and it was quite loud. The service was fine and the food was what you'd expect. The server was friendly, but not overly so. It was an average experience and was a good dinner for a stopover in Fresno.

Great for families! It's a little loud but perfect if you have kids. Food came quickly and kids loved their meals: ribs and pasta. yes booths are nice but atmosphere and food made up for it! And by the smiling faces at the bar I could bet the drinks were good too!
