Review of TGI Friday's

TGI Friday's
Ranked #857 of 1,069 Restaurants in Panama City
Cuisines: American
Restaurant details
Reviewed November 20, 2011

Unfortunately this restaurant is attached to the Amador Country Inn & Suites and provides room service for the hotel. Due to necessity and convenience I ate and/or drank at this place 4 times during my stay. Each time was an unpleasant experience. With the exception of 2 male waiters who were quite good, all the other waiters and hostesses were rude and completely unwelcoming. I spoke Spanish but this didn't seem to help anyway.

The night I needed Room Service - the first time I called, it rang out with no-one answering. I rang again and eventually someone picked up, only to then hang up on me. I called back and they pretended they couldn't hear me and hung up. This happened twice. I then called Reception in the hotel and asked if they could hear me - of course they could. I called the restaurant again and no answer. I called Reception again to ask if perhaps their restaurant was closed (at 6.30pm on a Saturday night) - of course it wasn't, so Reception offered to call the restaurant for me. Eventually, after waiting another couple of minutes for someone to come to the phone, I got to place my order.

The food is average at best. The outside seating is ok but take a sweater if you want to sit inside because the air con is set to freeze.

I really hope I caught them on a bad weekend and that this is the exception to the norm.

If you want the worst of the worst of Americana fast food reproduced in Panama City try TGI Friday at the Country Inn and Suites Amador. The lovely stench of very old cooking oil greets you in the parking lot and it's all down hill from there.
