I was in Indy for a conference and the TGIF was attached to the hotel. We were in a hurry when we first got to the hotel so by default and proximity we just came here with low expectations.
Me and my colleague were both so impressed with bartender and staff that we ended up going back two more times. The food is what you would expect from a national chain but still very tasty. I will say considering the location it was not very busy, but for us that worked out fine as the bartender was schooling us on local sites/things to do while we there.

This location does not offer the same specials as others around, but if you ask nicely the waitress may give them to you anyway. Service was great for Friday night and food was fantastic.

We had a group of 11 and did not want to search out any other site during the Big Ten championship weekend. Staff was able to quickly accommodate our group. Service was good for a Friday night.

We were staying at the Fairfiled Suites and this TGIF is attached to the hotel. It had been a long day, we were hungry and just didn't feel like walking anywhere else to eat. So, we didn't starve. But, with all the options in downtown Indy, I wish we would have gone out and found something else. The menu just doesn't change much, but having said that I'd never had fried green beans. YUM! I'd go there just to get these. Then, leave and go somewhere else for dinner. The salads and burgers were just OK...not bad, but not anything special. And, the black bean burger was really bad. Our server didn't seem to know anything about the beers on tap, what might be local, and if there were any specials. Then, finally admitted it was his first day and he was not from Indy. So, he could not recommend a local beer - and had to go ask about the menu and preparations of items several times. He was very nice and apologized...but it became rather annoying. There are so many restaurants close to the Marriot hotels - I would suggest heading out and finding something more "local."
