Good food, good service. No waiting to get a table! Orlando restaurants seem surprisingly quiet, compared to our trip from the UK, same time last year and Friday's was no exception - busy but not crowded. Worth a visit.

Excellent $6 drink menu and endless Apps for $10 are pretty near unbeatable deals for good quality items. We visited this restaurant twice in 3 days and would definitely return.

They have raised their prices for food now and kids drinks and ice cream are NOT included - that was disappointing. It is expensive to eat out as a family, so based on price alone,... More

If you like your sport, you'll be surrounded by something like 30 tellies showing twenty diferent games. Food excellent, service impeccable. Beer reasonably priced... although. 'What beer would you like sir.' 'Any. Just so longs as it's not American.' Bud Lite indeed.

Exactly what you expect from a big chain restaurant. Food was typical American, nothing special but very enjoyable for the family and great service. Good value for money easy parking and good experience

We visited the Fridays as we have several times before. It took awhile for our waitress to come to our table. She finally did after a few minutes, took our drink order and after a short wait came back with the beverages. Then we ordered our meals. The meal was good but the service was less then what we would... More

Very slow and the waitresses and hostesses are like deer in headlights when you ask them a question.
