Unfortunately nothing special here, move along ...

This Friday's we find as just ok. One thing you notice is that they change their menu often and raise prices routinely. Not only that but the food portions have shrunk quite dramatically. Whether it's a chicken dish such as their parmesan chicken or their bay back ribs, the cuts are very small... read more

Went to TGI Friday's for the first time in decade as I was looking for something new to try after seeing a movie. Decided on TGI Friday's because we didn't want fast food. The menu had many different options and settled on the Smoke Stacked Burger and Jack Daniel’s Chicken Sandwich. Both were delicious and the only recommendation is to... More

A friend and I was in town to attend The Nutcracker by State street Dance studio@ Bavativa Fine Arts Center. We stopped here for lunch. Our waiter Chase was cute and nice. He gave a great suggestion for drinks. I had the strawberry mule and my friend had the berry sangria. Once we order he gave his recommendation on our... More

As the title states, my family and I have tried to eat at Fridays at three different times during the past month. The first time, they wanted us to sit in the bar area. The music was so loud that I couldn't hear my wife across the table. We left. The second time we waited 20 minutes for a table.... More

I took my ten year old here last week and even at 6:00, it was really crowded. We opted to sit in the bar and had a great time. The waitress was very friendly and on top of it. My daughter had the chicken strips and I had a steak with spinach, one of the low calorie options. The food... More

I love TGIFriday's! The atmosphere is cozy. The Jack Daniels sauce is legendary. The service is welcoming. My eating experience yesterday in Batavia, Illinois proved a different story. We played the waiting game with our waitress for every element of our dining experience. First, she offered complimentary chips and salsa because we were Stripes members. Never saw even a corner...

I'm a fan of Friday's and was driving up Randall Rd around lunch time and saw this place and decided to stop. Inside has a nice decor. Got a steak with mash potatoes, it was quite good, and I liked the sauce it came with. THere were a number of people at lunch (this was a weekend) but it wasn't... More

I like that Friday's changes their menu and brings back seasonal favorites. The manager took time with each customer to make sure their meal was to their satisfaction. It was refreshing to see such great customer service. It's also good food if you're having a late dinner.

Called ahead seating at 530pm for my family of 7. Arrived 25 mins later into a frenzy of people. We were given a card with a number. The seating system was confusing. The wait was longer than we were told because they had pre-assigned us to a table with patrons who seemed to be enjoying a longer late lunch (which... More

The food is always very good at every Friday's. The servers/host/hostess are always very friendly, helpful and accommodating. It is a fun atmosphere with consistently great food. It's our "go to" restaurant for a great, inexpensive meal.
