The food is good, the service is excellent, and they don't skimp on the quality of the drinks. Very good place for family or friends.

We were at a travelers hotel and wanted a restaurant within walking distance. The choice came down to a Chinese buffet, Applebees or TGIF which seemed the wisest choice. The menu listed an ale on draft. No- only in bottle. My wife ordered the chipotle chicken salad. Stringy, dry chicken , not her favorite. I had the bourbon grilled chicken... More

Stopped in on Christmas night as this was one of the few restaurants open. Very good service and good food. Had chicken tenders and a pecan salad. A tad pricey but overall good experience.

Slightly more expensive than similar eateries like Cheddars. The JD chicken was moist and tasty. Sides of veggie were delicious.

Kind waiter was sincerely attentive and friendly. Pricey for a moderate restaurant. Valley View Mall area. Downloaded app and received free dessert. Bar scene late night.

This eatery was very local to our hotel and well worth a visit. It was quiet since we ate relatively early and service was prompt. Staff were courteous and made some good recommendations. The food was tasty and well presented.

This was recommended as one of two restaurants within walking distance of our hotel that had a liquor license. after a full day on the road we felt this was important! Accepting this is a ubiquitous chain we had a very pleasant evening - probably helped by $3 margaritas on Thursday evenings! Limited options on the veggie front for missus... More
