Great place to sit outside to people watch.

They have a great appetizer special all you can eat for 12.00 a person. We had fun sampling everything and relaxing watching the people go by. It was good to have a variety of things to try

I normally love TGI Friday's because you can count on the food always being the same. Not in Gatlinburg. We were so disappointed. The drinks were weak and then it took for ever for us to get our food. Then it had a nerve to be cold after waiting forever. To add insult to injury the food just wasn't good.... More

The only restaurant in town that wasn't busy (for good reason). 15 minute wait to be seated in a restaurant that was clearly 1/2 empty (we suspected a lack of cooking staff). Tired and dated interior. When my food order arrived (Chicken strips and Fries), the Chicken was like eating a Hillbilly's flip-flop and the cold Fries were obviously made... More

I was visiting from out of town and we had a dog with us, so we decided to get it to go. Once I went to get my food and walked back to the hotel room I noticed that not all of my food was there. I had ordered the chicken and shrimp with steak fries and mac-n-cheese. My shrimp... More

I was brought here on my birthday (march 11)by some friends. I had a steak and rib combo with the jack daniels bbq sauce. My food came out hot and quickly. My steak was cooked just right. The sides were awesome too. The portions of food surprised me in a good way, at how large they were. My server was... More

I'm a local and I have never been to tgi in gatlinburg. Our waitress, she was young, I think her name was crystal, looked like a typical snobby girl who doesn't care about customer service and she was pretty rude. She seemed like she dreaded taking our order and she didn't even smile. I was with my family and we... More

We really like this restaurant.. The food was great and the staff was friendly. It has an outdoor patio for families and couples who want to sit outside to eat. Prices are definitely reasonable. The restaurant was clean and we were served our food within a reasonable amount of time. We will return here again.
