Typical chain place, nothing new here. Downgraded as they were basically out of half their draft beers. Look elsewhere.

Although we were seated promptly and our drinks came quickly, our waiter then disappeared and a waitress came in his place. She took our order, and I requested my steak medium. After a long wait, our food arrived, with my steak well-done and the other entree so spicy as to be inedible. No one ever came to refill the water,... More

I was reluctant to visit this T.G.I Friday's again based on my experience the last couple of times. However, my daughter really wanted to come here for dinner on a Friday night. The only pleasant experience during the entire time was the very nice hostess who greeted us. The waitress took our order and never checked on us for 30... More

Went here on a date. Crowded, over priced, and service was pathetic. Our waitress was horrible. When it mattered, she was nowhere to be found, and when she wasn't needed, she was constantly annoying us, ruining any conversation me and the date had. The food came out cold. The only thing I enjoyed during this evening was the Ravens/Broncos playoff... More

This restaurant is a typical TGI Friday's. We were seated immediately and our server took our drink order within a few minutes of being seated. The house wines are the "Barefoot" brands and the white and red were very good and an average volume. We ordered the standard burger and cheeseburger, which were decent, but a bit on the dry... More

It seems that competition between chain restaurants is a blessing to the consumer. Each one offers dinner specials at excellent prices. This week, we tried the 2 For Ten at TGI Friday's. From a small but varied menu, you can order one appetizer and one entree for ten dollars. The food is very good and the portion sizes are quite... More

I always like coming here with friends after work for a drink and appetizers. Pretzel sticks= Heaven!!!!!!!! The Manager is very personable and has personally greeted me several times. Bottom line, good food and good service. No complaints!

How do you somewhat ruin a burger? Don't know...but it was greasy. They've had some problems here but I guess they resurrected themselves.

My husband and I had dinner here during a fundraising event. This was on a Thursday evening and the restaurant was about half full. Our waitress, Natalie, was friendly, but seemed overwhelmed by the amount of diners she stated "came out from nowhere". Our drink order arrived promptly. The warm pretzel appetizer had a terrific lightly crispy texture and was... More
