Food was fast and good. Service was excellent. You never know where your server might be from in Gatlinburg, this time it was Croatia.

Great service and terrific food. I had the trio with fried mac-n-cheese, meatballs, and thai pork tacos. Delicious! We will return when we visit the smokies.

Snowy night and nothing open in town, we were forced to eat here and I am glad. We were very surprised by the change in menu since we had stopped going to TGIF's years ago because of quality. I had the Jack Chicken sandwich, it was very good. My wife had the French Dip, and she really enjoyed. It was... More

We met up with four of our close friends for lunch at TGI Fridays. We all live locally within blocks of this restaurant. We were greeted with a smile and seated promptly. Carla was our bartender and as always she remembered our preferred drink of choice. Carla has a great professional yet fun attitude with her customers. Food was great... More

Love TGI Fridays. I assume we caught them on a busy day. It was Valentine's day. However, you would think they are used to busy seasons and days. The girl at the bar had carryout duties. She was too busy taking care of all the bar needs and doing carryout. Took 30-35 minutes, which was okay. They were busy. But... More

I would definitely recommend this Friday's. I was there during the early afternoon having lunch and let me tell ya, it was great. I'm in the business and enjoyed watching the teamwork by the servers. Good job! Only time I saw management is when I went up to the bar. Looked like they were having lunch. The restrooms were really... More

Service was good, food was good, drinks were good. The little touchscreen video game at the bar was fun too.

The food here was good but not all of the seating is ideal. Unfortunately we got sat by the bathrooms but no big deal! Did not let it ruin our night!
