We visited this TGI Friday's after Knott's closed at 8 PM, and I got the impression that there may have only been 3 employees there that night. No one even greeted us at the entrance until we'd waited for a bit, and at one point I saw a man in a chef's uniform delivering food. Our waiter was also tending... More

This is your average TGI Friday's except pretty pricey. Good food. Exceptional service! I'm not sure the service is worth the price but makes it a little easier. 😊

Definitely not worth the price, service was very slow & restaurant was only half-full. You're better off just to call for a Papa John's Pizza

Service was great, couldn't complain about the meals. Good sized portions. Ideal location if you want to have a meal or cold drink for a break from Knott's as it is pretty much opposite the park.

Stating the obvious, it is TGI Fridays, we all have them in our home town, so you know the menu. The location is right out side of Knotts Berry Farm. The service was really slow and it was not crowded at all. Not the best of the chain. I would go to some place unique to the area.

Awesome! We stuck to the half price apps. We shared 4 plates and 5 drinks for about $55! Good selection of both food and drinks.

Do yourself a favor and walk a little beyond Knott's Berry Farm to Rock & Brews or another restaurant. This particular TGI Friday's jacked its prices since it's right outside of Knott's Berry Farm, but the food was blander than the TGI Friday's near my house in Phoenix. I wasn't impressed at all. Especially not when the bill came for... More

We ate here whilst we were staying at Knotts Berry Farm, was are a family of four and everyone was satisfied after our meal. As usual portions were huge and we couldn't finish our plates and we were too full for pudding. We didn't reserve and we were able to get a table without waiting, and it was easy to... More

After being at Knotts berry farm all day it's great to have such a well-known restaurant worldwide so close by. The service was excellent and the food was delicious.
