Family dinner

We had Mike as a waiter. He was an awesome waiter. Took the time to talk and made our visit awesome. There was a new chef training who mixed up our order, but Mike fixed everything quickly.

I always like to try different restaurants, and especially the non-chain restaurant. But beeing on vacation in the US, and with the enourmous selection of different places to eat you have to go safe sometimes. This Friday's-restaurant was chosen for a late lunch before going to the Florida Mall (and therefor the safe option). I have eaten at Friday's several... More

My fiance and I went to this location after the FAMU vs. Bethune Cookman game. We are die hard Friday fans. This trip was a bit different because we had a chance to get our picture taken by a photographer. He approached us very politely and was very professional. He explained what he was doing and the cost. He took... More

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.
