My friends and I decided to spend my birthday dinner here. We thought we were lucky as there wasn't many people for a Saturday night. The place wasn't packed at all! We placed our orders and even then, the server didn't seem hospitable in any way. he just slid and shoved the drinks on the table, even the straws he... More

We ate dinner there when we stayed in motel connected to here. It was very convenient. The waiter was a lot of fun and provided us excellent service. He told us about some things to see and do in area. The restrooms were nice clean and well maintained. Food was served promptly and was hot and appealing. Definitely will eat... More

We eat at T.G.I. Fridays quite often. Love their food, the staff and can always have a good time in the bar area. Love the Jack Daniel's items. Can have a wait at the busier times.

Had dinner here last night after long day visiting a friend in the hospital. Delighted that the restaurant is attached to the hotel. Salmon with lobster was wonderful. Wine was 2 for 1 and the whiskey cake was outstanding. Server was pleasant and efficient. Hostess made sure I was seated where I could read. Glad I made the choice to... More

About 20 total people waiting to be seated. I saw many many tables open, did not make sense. I did not feel like waiting so I went to the bar to look for a seat. Found one but previous customer dishes still on bar counter. I sat down anyways, waited and waited and waited. No one ever came to clear... More

The food is typical of TGI Friday's, but I've often experienced the line: "Sorry, we're out of that." If you go on theatre night, it is packed beyond belief. Not much privacy - you are packed really close to the other tables.

We had a late lunch here on a Monday afternoon. The service was slow and the food was average for a TGI Friday's. Whatever you do, don't use the bathroom. It looked and smelled like it hadn't been cleaned in weeks. There were no paper towels to dry my hands after washing them. It makes me wonder how the staff... More

food was okay but pricey. service was mediocre but it was 9 pm at night on a Tuesday with a hockey game in town so I shouldn't have expected much. I'm not a big TGIF fan to begin with but it was connected to the hotel and we didn't have to go out in the cold wind.

Good food decent price. Service was adequate go early because it fills up quick! We ordered a couple of signature dishes the Jack Daniels rib eye and Dragon Salmon. Both good for a chain. Good experience right in our hotel so no travel!
