“Pretty much just OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

We were staying at the Fairfiled Suites and this TGIF is attached to the hotel. It had been a long day, we were hungry and just didn't feel like walking anywhere else to eat. So, we didn't starve. But, with all the options in downtown Indy, I wish we would have gone out and found something else. The menu just doesn't change much, but having said that I'd never had fried green beans. YUM! I'd go there just to get these. Then, leave and go somewhere else for dinner. The salads and burgers were just OK...not bad, but not anything special. And, the black bean burger was really bad. Our server didn't seem to know anything about the beers on tap, what might be local, and if there were any specials. Then, finally admitted it was his first day and he was not from Indy. So, he could not recommend a local beer - and had to go ask about the menu and preparations of items several times. He was very nice and apologized...but it became rather annoying. There are so many restaurants close to the Marriot hotels - I would suggest heading out and finding something more "local."

“So Sad”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

I do not know what has happened to Fridays, at one time they were the place to go. The last two times I have tried to eat there, I have walked out...Menu is the same thing after the same thing, just w/a different sauce. The premier appetizers are now gone. We never go back, to many other restaurants to choose from.

Good food--poor lighting! The menu offered lots of choices--unfortunately we could not see it very well!

“Slow Service, Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Just like all Friday's, the place was clean and staff friendly. It was attached to the Fairfield Downtown so it was very convenient. The service was pretty slow, nobody noticed us walk in, I don't think. It was also quite late so that may explain some of the wait, as well. Once the food and drinks came, we were all happy. The food was awesome, as usual. I think the kitchen was open until 1 am, while the bar was operating until 2 (at least on Saturdays).

“Fast and easy.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

This was an easy meal one night since I was staying at the Fairfield Inn next door. The Jack Daniels burger was very good, and the fries hot. Good comfort food.
