I went on a bus trip on 1/31/15 to watch the Milwaukee Admirals face the Grand Rapids Griffins at the Van Andel Arena. When we arrived in Grand Rapids, we had 2 hours til doors opened. Most people that I was with went to another place. I went to TGI Fridays, they had a special menu to combine an entree... More

Ok... Nothing new here. Good comfort food. Our service was friendly and always has been. One problem- if you don't like chicken, your salad options are limited. No biggie, but I se to remember, as a fish lover, having more options in the past. Decent prices and apps are good enough to create s lunch out of. Good!!

We stopped here a couple of weeks ago, before attending a show downtown. We had a coupon for a free appetizer and a free steak dinner, which was one of the reasons we chose this restaurant, though it also is one of our favorites. Right up front we told the waitress that, not only did we have a coupon for... More

We went there late one night after a gymnastics competition. It was less crowded than the restaurant at the hotel. My salad was fine, but nothing special. 2 people had under cooked chicken and hamburger. The staff was nice, but a little slow.

We ate here during Art Prize in Grand Rapids, just as we had the previous year. The location is great when walking around looking at the art. We got in faster this year compared to last year with only about a 10 minute wait this year. We were seated quickly, our server was very friendly. I think the prices are... More

The restaurant is well located and convenient. It has the standard offering from TGI Friday's and that means that there is tasty consistency. Food was very good. Service was excellent. Facility has nice sports access on TV. I would go back.

We usually don’t eat at chain restaurants or write a review, but decided to eat here before an event at the Arena. It was very good and worthy of a thumbs up. The food was plentiful, hot, and tasty. The service for as busy as they were was attentive, always was served or checked on in a timely matter. For... More
