I took my daughter there for lunch. We arrived right after they opened. They were all set up and ready to go. Food was hot and delicious. And it came quickly.

On occasions that are for a little more fancy meal, try Friday's. My husband loves the Jack Daniels sauce with it. He either gets the flat iron steak or the rib -eye. They make it as you like it . If you like add - ons , they have reasonable little lobsters to add to your steak. I love the... More

Always have a good meal and experience. Staff always pleasant. Not to say there are not some issues but always resolved pleasantly. Never thought I would have Mac & Cheese at a restaurant but this was adult style. Also there Lobster topped Salmon is assume.

I've had mixed experiences here. My young daughter loves to eat here, but I have found wait times after ordering beyond 30 minutes - when the restaurant was NOT busy. Again, people nice.

I remember going to Friday's for large portions, cold beer and a friendly atmosphere, what happened. It appears that they are serving their frozen meals that they sell at Walmart. There were 8 of us that went for appetizers and drinks the other night. Their 5 for $21.00 we thought was a good deal, wrong. The portions were small as... More

I remember years ago when Fridays was good. When the portion size was decent and the food was tasty. The one thing that has not changed is that the staff is still very good. They are attentive and polite. Now when you go you pay an arm and a leg for a tiny portion that tastes blah for double the... More

Went to TGI Friday's for the first time in decade as I was looking for something new to try after seeing a movie. Decided on TGI Friday's because we didn't want fast food. The menu had many different options and settled on the Smoke Stacked Burger and Jack Daniel’s Chicken Sandwich. Both were delicious and the only recommendation is to... More

This Friday's we find as just ok. One thing you notice is that they change their menu often and raise prices routinely. Not only that but the food portions have shrunk quite dramatically. Whether it's a chicken dish such as their parmesan chicken or their bay back ribs, the cuts are very small. Compare their slab of ribs size to... More

He gave a great suggestion for drinks. I had the strawberry mule and my friend had the berry sangria. Once we order he gave his recommendation on our... More
