On our way home after a Disney weekend we decided to lunch at Friday's. Our server had a large group next to us and while she was very busy took very good care of us. We also left my year old granddaughters favorite drink cup behind when we left. The manager Brandon, who has several children of his own, sent... More

We walked in late and was hoping they would seat us. They did, with no problems and we had a fabulous server (Shawn, I believe was his name). He was 5 star with an edge, he was great! He was totally on his game... and he took care of several other people at the same time, and we never lacked... More

We visited this restaurant for dinner, 4 adults and 2 teenagers (16 &17). The menu was good and varied. My son ordered the ribs/steak combo (which comes with a side of fries and a side of macaroni cheese!!!). He thoroughly enjoyed it, said the ribs were amazing. Unfortunately they brought the wrong burger for my friend and had to take... More

Albeit, my visit was mid 2014 - TGI's was really good. I had the Ribs and it was HUGE - really tasty though. Service was excellent and the server was funny and joked with us. Drinks too - they just keep coming, you don't even have to finish to have a fresh glass of refreshing soft drink. The difference between... 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.

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 we... More
