Giving two stars because almost all the food was pretty good (aside from not being hot and the dessert being terrible). We got there and had to wait (about 5-7 minutes) for somebody to remember to come to the front and get guests sat, my husband walked in where the person who seemed to be the manager (different uniform) was...

We ate here on our first night in San Diego as it was around the corner from our hotel and was easy to get to. Firstly they told us it was a 15-20 minute wait for a table even though there were plenty of tables available. We chose to sit at the bar and were asked for ID when we... More

We have eaten often at many of the TGIF locations around the country and they are very consistent with their excellent food and service. We had the 2 for $20 meals which was a good value. Sarah our server was helpful and attentive. It was very very loud, we may be getting too old for these restaurants.

Great value, great service, great ambiance. Okay, it' a burger but it's a good burger. This restaurant knows how to make customers feel special. Makes for good tips, I get it and I will give extra in tips for the great service. T.G.I. Fridays in UK, please take note as service in Swansea location is so......bad.......

A good experience overall. We had a lovely meal that was quick to arrive and tasted great. There were lots of menu choices, and all were reasonably priced. Big portions all around, we were full by the end of the main meal, but somehow managed to squeeze in a dessert as well. The venue was nice and the server was... More

I like TGi and eat there often both in UK and USA, but this one in San Diego lets the brand down. Very poor experience. Food was dry and had been over cooked and left a while before being brought to our table. Slow service and one of the meals came some 10 minutes after the rest had been served.... More
