“Very poor value for the price”
Reviewed October 27, 2011

Wow, Friday's has gone downhill. Hopefully it is just this one location.

We went for lunch on a weekday. We ordered a few appetizers and sandwiches. The boneless buffalo wings were more like just breaded chicken- no sauce whatsoever. We had to ask for a side of sauce to give them any spice at all. Shrimp cocktail was good (hard to mess that up).

I ordered the BBLT, which the menu advertises as "Bacon, bacon, lettuce & tomato- with a side of bacon!". It was just your basic BLT, in fact, rather skimpy on the bacon, maybe 1 or 2 slices of tomato total and hardly any lettuce. I could've made a better BLT myself at home. I added sliced avocado to my sandwich for a dollar, and what I got was about 1 little slice on each half of the sandwich. The menu advertised that both our sandwiches would come on Ciabatta bread, but they showed up on plain old white bread. I also had to pay an extra dollar to get the crispy fried green beans. In all, a skimpy BLT on white bread with sliced avocado and crispy fried green beans should not cost $11.95!

My husband's sandwich sounded pretty good on the menu but was basically ham and a little bit of melted cheese, nothing special and certainly not worth the price. He said it was not good at all. I wish I could remember what it was called.

The service was just mediocre. It was hard to find our waitress sometimes.

Wish we had gone somewhere else. Not good value for the money at all. We will cross Friday's off our list!

Well this is a chain restaurant so you should know what to expect if youve been to one before. Pretty average overall. service is decent. Never had a huge problem, but no great experience that stands out neither. There are a few good plates, but nothing too memorable. Personally haven't gone in a while. Just not a standout restaurant IMO. I'll recomend if you are in a group just do to the fact they have a decent variety of dishes
