Good for familiee

Visited with six of us had to wait for a table. All in all was a good experience. The choice for the kids menu was limited but they enjoyed the food. Ordered chocolate milk expecting hot chic for kids but it was cold chocolate milk. Server did heat in microwave which was good. Food was hot and what... read more

We are here 4 days ago and loved it so much we are going back tonight. The service was excellent, the food was excellent and the prices were so reasonable! At only $3 for a beer this kept the guys happy, and cocktails for $4 the ladies! The children got balloons and we all got key rings. A very nice... More

TGI is such a well oiled machine that you are always assured of quality food and service. Although this time, we had a tiny hicup, the starter platter was freezing, we returned it, no problem but I suspect when we got it back it was the same platter, as the potato skins were hard , they were that crispy and...

Nothing wrong yet nothing outstanding in this visit. Had a short wait which is expected. A lively venue with good back ground music and friendly staff. Ordered a mixed starter and 4 mains for us. All were decent portions but not particularly hot. Tasted ok. In a market flooded with this type of food it needs to be hotter and... More

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
