“Perfect service and perfect meal for my fiance's birthday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2013

This place is one of our favourite restaurants - With it's friendly service, American themed diner style and amazingly, delicious food - You just can't go wrong.
We were served by a guy called Sam T and he was so attentive and just really loved his job.
We had to wait for our table for 45 minutes but we didn't care as we knew how good the food would be when we got it.
My fiance loved his birthday meal and we both had a lovely time.

“Choose Wetherspoons instead.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013

TGI Friday's Trafford Centre is not a nice place to eat. Staff are cocky, the music is too loud to have a conversation, the food is overpriced and not all that great. You'd have a nicer, cheaper meal in a better environment if you chose the nearby Wetherspoons. Avoid.

“Fairly surprised.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013 via mobile

I was pleasantly surprised here today, tasty platter starter, tasty burger, brothers steak was a tad over cooked, but the service was good, all in all I can't complain too much about here today.

“A born entertainer”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

A recent visit to TGI s near to Sale/Altringham.. The food was "as TGi s " food is. Good "all American" burgers ,chicken wings and ribs. Etc. I recommend the hot chicken wings ,Get some water. The service is prompt, and very friendly. (but stop touching the top of the straws before giving them to customers ,you know who you are.. lol )The thing that most impressed me was the free entertainment given by Joel (a staff member) He had us enthralled with his magic tricks and his friendly demeanour. Nothing was too much trouble for this guy. He had a smile throughout our visit and was very helpful with his extensive knowledge of the menu. He should be on stage. He is a great advert for this company. Wel done Joel. Keep up the standard.
