My husband and I went here for dinner. For it to be the "biggest in the US" we sure had to wait a while to be seated and it wasn't the best food for the price (double . We won't be coming back.

Visited 24/8/14 after trip to Statue of Liberty. Family of four. First place to eat that we recognised as we walked up from the SOL ferry port. First impressions not great. A little too dark and cramped. Service reasonably prompt. Drinks took little while to arrive though as did food. My daughter and I's burgers were great when they arrived.... More

Well it's good to know a place that's clean, has good food and good service. I'm not a huge fan of this chain. But we just come from Times square and were a little overwhelmed and just picked this on a whim. It was a good choice. We didn't have to wait to get a table and our food came... More

Considering the location of the restaurant it is to be expected that the prices will be higher so we went as a treat during our visit. The service from the staff was great. They were able to accommodate us very quickly during a very busy period. Food was tasty and the cocktails were great!

It's a family restaurant, but the service was long, portions small and it was not that good... Only if you don't have the choice.

I will try to be fair by saying that we were quite tired when we went here, the food was fine without being anything special, service was also ok but a slight sense of yeah, whatever!

The food is like any other TGI ( which means it´s decent) but you are middle of Manhattam, so be ready for a ore expensive check.

Yes, you expect to pay a little more when eating in Times Square, but $85 for a flatbread, and two nacho apps (like eight nachos each) and three lemonades was a bit ridiculous. Service was ok, but it's cramped and dark and if you freeze while sitting under one of their turbo ceiling fans, they won't shut them off. Go... More

I was in this restaurant 15 years ago and it looks exactly the same today as it did then. Expected typical big chain quality meaning you know what to expect and deliver on it every time as we are travelling with 2 kids. Ordered a simple Jack Daniels chicken sandwich which isn't difficult. We waited an hour and the chicken... More
