A basic TGI's, I actually went to watch the English Football (Soccer), and had to search for the channel myself, that said in England you would have been told plain and simple we are not showing it, so thanks for letting me search and watch the game. We came back a couple of days later for a small lunch and... More

We did a take out order at this restaurant. Our order was misplaced, but the manager took care of it immediately. We were impressed by the service as our order was quickly prepared and was correct. We will definitely eat here again when we visit family in the area.

We always enjoy our visit to TGI Fridays. The food is excellent and the waitresses are always pleasant, especially our favorite waitress, Shameeka. The pretzel appetizers are sooooo good, we always order them. My husband always has his favorite, 6 oz. steak, French fries and broccoli, me...I love to try everything.

In the area on a business trip however I grew up in the area and graduated from the local high school here. Since Fridays is always a good go to restaurant for happy hour and their endless $10 app, I've visited way too much to admit. Especially since one can't beat the deal that's going on right now. However it's... More

I can always count on a consistent meal here. Inexpensive and good. Service is excellent. Can always get a table. Really like the pretzels.

I got there around 11pm, it was almost empty. Nobody was at the door and I waited there like 5 minutes. I didn't know in which section to seat, after I get tired to wait in there I ask the person in the bar which section was opened and he told me to sit anywhere. I waited in my table... More
