TGIFs across the country closed down when the economy got bad. All the restaurants near where I live shut their doors years ago. I noticed recently a lot of TGIF commercials and ads...maybe they're trying to revive the business! Well, in SD for a convention I saw this restaurant and just had to stop in for a snack and a...

Try two for one price entrees. Get appetizer and two meals for one price with option to upgrade. Son really enjoys salmon with lobster.

Went to TGI Fridays for lunch, it was near our hotel Homewood suites Mission Valley, the Service we had from Little Joe was great! he was young and right on. Food was good and the place wasn't too busy. It is kind of tucked away from the main area but we found it.

Typical chain type bar for happy hour. The half off appetizers were pretty cheesy but the beer was cheap. Several TVs to watch a game although they prefer to play loud music over listening to the TV. Service was a little slow but that's pretty much what you get with most Millenials. Average.

TGI FRIDAYS! A few Years ago I was in the Car Business working at Midway Jeep just down the Street. Every once in awhile a Manager would invite a productive sales crew down for a treat. Over the Years I have stopped in on my own to experience the flair and the good food. My Favorite is their BBQ Ribs!... More

If I could give a "0" or "Negative Stars" review this would be it. I have never had such a horrible experience at a TGI Friday's. We were staying at the Wyndham and walked down for dinner. After waiting an exceptionally long time and almost never getting drink refills, both my son and I had to return our dinners. I... More

We were shopping at the mall and as the kids were hungry, we decided to make a quick stop at T.G.I.Fridays. Kids menú was OK. We adults had some appetizers and they were really good. Service was OK as well.
