I would avoid their awful, limited and unhealthy menu. There are not many items on the menu, comparatively. Had their broccoli soup which was tasteless and unappealing. Their bbq chicken salad was all iceberg (garbage). Service was slow. Took 15 minutes after I was seated...More

We were not impressed with this Fridays versus a normal Friday's experience. Restaurant seemed understaffed on a weekend and our food was not very good. We have reasonable expectations for this type of chain restaurant and it was still a let down. The service was...More

We were in town for a hockey tournament and stopped in for a late night snack with a few parents and players. Our server was rude and very annoyed that our group trickled in, instead of arriving altogether. It took forever to get out food....More

We had a 20 minute wait but service was excellent and our waitress was just plain tops! She was personable, fun and attentive to our needs. Our meals were very good-hot and fresh. The potato was steaming and so fresh-not recooked. My husband's burger (veggie)...More

It seemed it took an abnormal amount of time for the waitress to come to my table. A side salad and water also took a long time. Not a good choice for me for a quick late lunch.

I was told that this restaurant was only open on Fridays. Boy, BOY! Was I surprised that this was open other days of the week. Our initial experience was like having an IUD inserted. Time consuming. Painful. And slightly metallic in taste. But once we...More

Went to this restaurant for dinner after another restaurant failed to impress. Upon hearing of our bad experience, the server took it upon himself to repair our evening. The fish and chips I had was average - the fish fried a little too long. However,...More

Description
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 Bedford Park, IL 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.
