Food is average. Service was great!

My family and I have eaten here twice. Food is good. Hot and it tastes like what it is - bar food. The atmosphere is up beat. Our service has always been excellent. Good place to grab a bite it you are not looking for mountain food.

First off, I give kudos to TGI Friday's for giving foreign exchange students an opportunity. That was the best part of our meal. With all the places to eat in Gatlinburg, we chose this place. The food was sub par, edible, but sub par. Even thought we had an exchange student, he spoke very broken English, however, he got our... More

My wife and I always enjoy Friday's many locations and this one is as good as any other we've been too! For a light lunch we split the Jack Daniels chicken dinner and both had plenty to eat!

We must have went on a bad day because the service was very slow. No one really seemed to care. I ordered the Jack Daniels steak an I couldn't eat it all. It was so tuff an chewy. I usually love TGI Fridays but will never eat at this one again.

I wanted to write a negative, nasty review because I think more people read those, but I just can't do it, this place was really good. We stopped for lunch on Wednesday afternoon and were seated immediately. I had the rotisserie chicken salad sandwich and it was very good. My wife had a tray of a tuna appetizer and really... More

Tamia was a great bar tender and gave us great service. The manager Jessie was very funny and very accommodating. Great food, great drinks, good family atmosphere, and good prices.
