Location and contact

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 Bloomington, MN 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.

This place is located close to hotel. Our waiter was awesome. The food was great, little pricey but it was worth it. The restaurant was clean.

Had the French dip. Ok. Honestly.. Not as good as Arbys. -Just thrice the price. Most entrees seem priced high enough.. But then sides are extra. Underwhelmed, over priced! Service was friendly and good however.

Great food. Order was ready when I arrived, just as indicated by the app. Utensils included without having to ask. The person that handed me the order called me by name.
