Haven’t been to a Friday’s forever but have fond memories of good dependable bar type food and a fun atmosphere. This Friday’s is tired. Our server was eager to rattle off all the new drink features when she arrived and wanted us to order right...More

We stopped in for dinner and had the Beyond Burger with fries and the grapes, goat cheese and shrimp on the salad. The service was great and the meal was very good.

After a long day my wife says, "let's go to TGIF" and I said sure. We weren't disappointed at all. We both got the Jack Daniels burger and that is always good.

The waitress brought us menus and was handing them to us across the table. She dropped one and spilled our drinks. I had wine all over my pants and shirt, and it was all over the table and floor. She then tried to act like...More

So, we have been back several times for the ribs. I have to say, they are inconsistent, and gone downhill in our eyes. Lately the ribs have been almost devoid of meat, and tough. The prices vary a lot, too. Their current special is $15...More

I brought my mother here when she arrived. The food was not hot and did not taste good. We will not return.

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 Port Charlotte, FL 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.
