Gotta love Fridays!

TGI Fridays is one of our favorite places to eat because the one closest to us closed two years ago. It was a nice surprise to find this one up the road from our hotel. We got seated immediately (the place was busy and it was dinner time) and served immediately. Our server was on top of things and... read more

The place was nearly empty on a rainy Monday afternoon. Sangria wasn't very good. After my husband found the cockroach in his french onion soup, we left in a hurry! The server and manager were polite and apologetic but still, ew.

Your typical TGIF...service was rather slow and the place was almost empty...did the $12 unlimited apps, which was a good deal...did not like the potato wedges, loved the flat bread pizza, pot stickers, tostadas, mozzarella sticks, fried mac and cheese, and the boneless chicken wings.

Walked in with my family, we ordered 3 medium burgers, they all came out charred and inedible. We sent them back, this was the last time we seen the server. Another server came by and we ordered cheesecakes, they all came out frozen, server was nowhere to be seen to let her know or send them back. Horrible service and... More

It's a TGi's....staff great with kids. Service a little slow. TVs around the restaurant to entertain kids. Can get busy so make sure you get there early.

We have frequented TGIF's before and vowed not to go back but we decided to give it another try. This time we ordered the All you can eat Apps. We had the boneless buffalo wings, potato skins (which was more like potatoes cut in 1/2 than the skins) but none the less really tasty and mozzarella sticks. I think it... More

I was reminded why I never eat at a TGI Friday's. However, since I was traveling with my family for Spring Break, I thought I would give this one a try. They mixed up my family's order three times. When my husband and I got our dishes they forgot to include the shrimp that came with both of our dishes.... More

Good food love the jack Daniels steak, but there are nothing special about this one, it's like almost all other TGI Fridays in the world. But again there was clean, nice and friendly staff. The waiting time for the food was just a little to long.
