On my way to a St. Patty's dinner party I decided to order an appetizer on line. Ordering was easy with debit card and even got a time for pick up...ordered fried green beans. Doubled the order so there would be enough appetizer for a...More

Ate dinner on a Monday evening and the place was dead. Maybe 10 people in the whole place. Had ribs and a burger. Both were good. Happily fresher than expected. Not sure the ribs really seemed bigger as advertised, but they were good.

I've come to enjoy TGI Fridays when we travel since always good food at reasonable prices. The Cedarcrest, Allentown Branch is a disaster when Dorney Park is open -- screaming kids way past there bedtime. Since it's in West Allentown alot of the City disruptive...More

We were there over 2 hours. Boys had ordered "endless apps" and they were lucky to get 3 in 2 hours. Finally a manager got involved and took $25 off our bill. We left still hungry and lost time on the road.

After a rainy day at Dorney Park, we decided to come here for dinner. It ended up being 8 at night, so the restaurant wasn't crowded at all. So, we were seated, looked at the menu, and it probably took the waiter about 15 minutes...More

I ate here for dinner with 2 other adult friends. They enjoy going here but it was my first time at this TGIF. They have quite a large menu. One friend had a flat-iron steak and was perfectly done. He said he prefers going here...More

Dinner was good, but we waited a long time, maybe they were short staffed. Our waiter was good, but seemed to be handling a lot of tables at one time. My beer was cold and good, but outside of glass was a bit gritty.

Waited at least 15 minutes for our drink order, then our app came out which was fine. We were in the restaurant over an hour and never got our entrees. First time i have ever walked out of a restaurant due to extremely slow service....More

Over the years I have been to many Fridays throughout the country. This ranks up there with the worst. The unfriendly hosts and the poor service are contributing factors. The outdated decor and dirty atmosphere didn't help. The menu sucks. This chain is crap.

We used to be big fans of TGIFriday's, but will likely not go back. Food was only ok. My steak was overdone (I ordered medium-rare, it was inconsistent: very well at one end, med-well throughout most and medium in another part), husband's pasta was under...More

In Manhattan in 1965, there was no place where people could go out to meet friends and make new ones in an environment that was at once both relaxed and yet exciting. Then, Alan Stillman opened Fridays as a way, he said, "to meet Pan Am stewardesses." Suddenly, there was a place with great food, new and exciting drinks and an electric energy. A place where bartenders mixed the environment just as well as they mixed drinks. In short, a place like nowhere else. Today, Fridays in Allentown, PA is still America's most iconic bar and grill. We embrace and celebrate our heritage as a bar. One that just happens to serve killer food in an environment where it's always Friday.
