Mixed Review - take the good with the bad

My visit to this restaurant 1.5 weeks ago was exceptional; the food, drinks, and service were all top-notch. However, today's visit was filled with one disappointment after another. Upon arrival, the hostess was nowhere to be found so we stood and waited. Upon being seated, we were ignored and... read more

Service was slow. Had to ask for drink refills while she was standing right there at table. Paying bill took half hour and we were second people there after doors opened. Had to wait way too long to get ticket, get ticket corrected, get a manager to address our waiting problem( we weren't only ones frustrated at this issue either)... More

First impression: it's sooo cold here. But the delicious food and the outstanding service (from Hector) let us forget about that. Unfortunately we don't have a Friday's in Germany, so we enjoy it in the US. We had the Bruschetta Chicken and the Memphis Ribs... DELICIOUS!

So disappointed after years of dining at THIS location. No one showed up to work both literally and figuratively. Shame on management for not caring about her quality of the food coming our of their kitchen. It was more like "put something, anything on the table" was all that was important after 30-40 minute wait. Even the drink refills, my... More

Went here two times in the past 3 months and received bad service both times, first time I saw my waitress 4 times in 50 minutes(order/drink/food/ticket) I thought that was bad then I had to wait the following time 20 minutes for a waiter/waitress, I lost patience and left. Worse service I have seen south of the border.

We went in to this Friday's after a horrendous experience at the next door Chili's (see separate review). We were seated promptly. Then we waited. The waiter who was apparently taking care of our area walked by our table at least 3 times, once making eye contact with me, but never saying a word. We watched as a couple who... More

The host who seated us was very friendly and turned the heat up for the area we were seated in because we were cold. Our waitress, Katie, was very cheerful and friendly and was very attentive. The food was very tasty and prepared well. We thoroughly enjoyed this experience and would recommend this location. Thank you for a nice meal... More

I've had TGIs a couple of times all over and this particular place isn't anything special. The food was just ok and atmosphere was not bad. Service was a bit above average. If you want a burger I'd go elsewhere.
