late night

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.

In town on business, TGIF was near my hotel so a co-worker and I walked over for a late dinner. Service was excellent; waitress was friendly, funny and helpful with suggestions. Location was great, in downtown Grand Rapids. It was a clean establishment as well. Drink specials were good, the night we were there. Good was standard for a chain..... More

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

We wanted something different from where we were eating during our five day stay at the Amway Grand and this was a good choice. Just a short walk which was nice. The food was very good and the service was as well. The only bad comment would be when someone comes in with kids don't assume it's alright to sit... More

This TGI Friday's is very comparable to others we have been to. Service was a bit slow, but it was fairly late on a Monday evening. It was nice that they had late hours even though they are located downtown (most downtown restaurants seem to close early on weeknights).

This is one of the better Fridays....the food was wonderful and the staff was very friendly and helpful providing directions. I would recommend this place easily - very close to the Marriott downtown and to the outdoor ice rink. Nice experience!

We go to Grand Rapids every Sept., My husband goes for business & I go for Artprize. We always stop at TGI Fridays on Monroe Ave. Its quick & easy to get to from the Amway Hotel where we stay. I highly recommend the three cheese Chicken with mashed potatoes.
