After an exhausting but delightful day at Disney Hollywood Studios, we wanted to eat something familiar, unpretentious, and unburdened by the insanely high prices of the WDW parks. Ah! There's a Friday's, let's go! So, here's the good part: Our server, Luis, was great. He was attentive, efficient, friendly, and invisible when we didn't want him. Seriously, this server has... More

Came after a long (fun) day at the park. The food took forever. It was adequate. The ribs were dry with a cloyingly sweet sauce. There was a balloon artist visiting tables, but no one was biting. He just kept circling the restaurant staring at us. It made me so nervous. Then the photo guy swooped in. Seriously, I just... More

Had a great time, the food was great and reasonably priced for the Disney area. many good restaurants in the Crossings near Downtown Disney, but this was better than most. We live nearby and know a lot of great places.

TGI fridays is generally good since all the cooks follow corporate recipes. What makes a chain good in the wait staff. ASK FOR HOLLY !!! She is exceptional and will make your evening better.

I had an awesome time here. The staff was super friendly and my food was perfect. My drinks were the perfect strength and the bar tenders was great, they really put on a great show behind the bar with awesome jokes and attending to all my requests. Two thumbs up to this Friday's location. I will be back soon.

I went here with my fiancée as part of our two week holiday to Florida. I think she has been here before on a previous holiday, but I hadn't. I wanted to try something typically American. We were staying at the Clarion Inn Palm Parkway and I would say that this is within walking distance. I'm not sure how long... More

Over the years we have visited this restaurant a lot of times. Just around the corner from our hotel in Palm Parkway and almost opposite the entrance to Disney World. We have used this venue at different times of day and have usually been seated quickly and received good service. The food continues to be good, but because the servings... More
