“Good target for a casual filling meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

The branch is like any other TGI Friday's branch elsewhere, but its location and bar ambiance make it a very comfortable spot for when you just want a filling casual meal or drink at any hour of the day. Service staff is always friendly and attentive. The only comment I have is that whoever cooks the steaks in this branch almost always has a tendency to go for well-done, or a step in that direction from what you requested for your steak.

“Never had a bad experience here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

This is probably my favorite place to eat in Gainesville. I've eaten here many times in the last 2 years & never had a bad experience. The food is always good & the drinks are always great.

“Good service, open late”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

In town with a family member at Shands Hospital, TGI Fridays was one of the few places still serving later than 10 p.m. after a long day at the hospital. During our 2 week stay in the area, we stopped by several times later in the evening. The bartender remembered our drink and appetizer orders after our first visit. On our third visit, the manager treated us to a round of drinks after taking some time to talk to us about our reason for visiting the area. We found both the staff and the clients in Gainesville very friendly.
