Good Service and Food

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.

The manager, Joe, does a great job of running this establishment. The food is excellent, the service is also. A VERY nice visit

It's near our hotel. We weren't too hungry so stopped in for appetizers. Ended up ordering a small steak. Very good, perfectly cooked. We ate in the bar area rather than wait the 30 minutes for a table. Wait staff were extremely friendly. Good food. Good location. Good people.

We (4 of us) arrived at 7pm, we could see the place was less than half full, yet we were asked to wait for 10-15 minutes. If I didn't have my children with me, I would have left straight away. Anyway, we waited, watching the empty tables remain empty! Then bizarrely we were shown to a table after 10 minutes,... More

My kids loved the Mac and cheese, hamburger, and fries. The ribs and burger were good, but the ribeye steak, which is one of the most flavorful steaks, had no flavor at all. The service was great and the location was as well.

The place needs a good cleaning. Everything is sticky. Food was okay, but go elsewhere if you want to actually enjoy it.

On a visit to San Diego our son took us to TGI Fridays. After sitting there waiting for dinner to be served I realized I used eat there in the 70s. My son, whom I had taken there several times when he was in single digit age remembered this. I must say the service was not as good as it... More

I am going to have to say that this might have been the best of not THE best experience I've ever had at a T G I Fridays because from the moment we walked in the door until the time we left, we received nothing but the upmost best customer service!

Waitress: Aubrey Date: 11/24/2014 (~4:00 PM) This was our last meal while visiting San Diego; and we decided to go to a restaurant not available in Seattle.
