We were just in Newark for the night before our flight out of the airport. The service here was delivered with a smile while our meal of flat iron steak was cooked to perfection. The cost was most reasonable. A great way to end our trip back east!

We had lunch here when were killing time waiting for a flight. This is an average Fridays and is a good way to kill time before a flight. The food was average. Nothing you havent seen in any other Fridays across the US.

Menu was outstanding, and a ton of items to choose from. Service was good, everyone was helpful, not just our specific waiter.

The ribs are the best and salad bar rocks ! But it needs some designer coffee drinks at the end of the meal to really be a break away restaurant

It's just your typical T.G.I.Friday's. They're located just outside of security check point in Terminal A, at Newark Airport. The service is great at the bar. We've never really sat at an table here.

T.G.I. Friday's in Terminal A of Newark Airport provides an opportunity to experience the lack-of-service culture that is becoming pervasive in the NY Metro area. If you're a sociologist, this place is for you. If someone seats you, they'll do so without saying a word to you. This "economy of words" is characteristic of this new service culture. You'll want...
