Good

My kids loved the Mac and cheese, hamburger, and fries. The ribs and burger were good, but the ribeye steak, which is one of the most flavorful steaks, had no flavor at all. The service was great and the location was as well.

We (4 of us) arrived at 7pm, we could see the place was less than half full, yet we were asked to wait for 10-15 minutes. If I didn't have my children with me, I would have left straight away. Anyway, we waited, watching the empty tables remain empty! Then bizarrely we were shown to a table after 10 minutes,... More

The place needs a good cleaning. Everything is sticky. Food was okay, but go elsewhere if you want to actually enjoy it.

On a visit to San Diego our son took us to TGI Fridays. After sitting there waiting for dinner to be served I realized I used eat there in the 70s. My son, whom I had taken there several times when he was in single digit age remembered this. I must say the service was not as good as it... More

I am going to have to say that this might have been the best of not THE best experience I've ever had at a T G I Fridays because from the moment we walked in the door until the time we left, we received nothing but the upmost best customer service! I really wish I could remember the waitresses name... More

Waitress: Aubrey Date: 11/24/2014 (~4:00 PM) This was our last meal while visiting San Diego; and we decided to go to a restaurant not available in Seattle. Service: This was by far the best service we received in any restaurant while in San Diego. Our waitress handled our requests, gave suggestions, and was always there when needed. We can honestly...

Our daughter enjoyed a BBQ burger; our granddaughter (1 yr old) had a kids meal of fries and chicken fingers; my wife enjoyed her combo plate, featuring top sirloin and shrimp; and I had a special Pecan Chef's salad with cheese breadsticks and clam chowder. For dessert, my wife and I shared an Oreo chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream... More

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
