Hugely understaffed and no know one seemed to care about the quality be served.

So disappointed after years of dining at THIS location. No one showed up to work both literally and figuratively. Shame on management for not caring about her quality of the food coming our of their kitchen. It was more like "put something, anything on the table" was all that was important after... read more

Went here two times in the past 3 months and received bad service both times, first time I saw my waitress 4 times in 50 minutes(order/drink/food/ticket) I thought that was bad then I had to wait the following time 20 minutes for a waiter/waitress, I lost patience and left. Worse service I have seen south of the border.

We went in to this Friday's after a horrendous experience at the next door Chili's (see separate review). We were seated promptly. Then we waited. The waiter who was apparently taking care of our area walked by our table at least 3 times, once making eye contact with me, but never saying a word. We watched as a couple who... More

The host who seated us was very friendly and turned the heat up for the area we were seated in because we were cold. Our waitress, Katie, was very cheerful and friendly and was very attentive. The food was very tasty and prepared well. We thoroughly enjoyed this experience and would recommend this location. Thank you for a nice meal... More

I've had TGIs a couple of times all over and this particular place isn't anything special. The food was just ok and atmosphere was not bad. Service was a bit above average. If you want a burger I'd go elsewhere.

Went here on a Friday as the nearby Olive Garden had a 45 minute wait time. Good food pretty quick and freindly service. Price was a bit higher than Texas Steakhouse but it was nice as the atmosphere was a bit more laid back and was just what we were looking for.

My wife and I went to TGIFs one saturday evening. The atmosphere was very mellow and the music in the background was great. The food was good as well. The only minor problems were that my wife ordered her steak well-done but when she cut it it was still pink on one side of the meat. My wife ordered a... More
