“Semi Decent”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2014

During the great snow storm in Indianapolis, I went to the TGI Fridays on W 38th St. @ I-465. Parking lot was still a mess and needed re-plowed since it had 6 inches of slush down.

Now for the Review... They had handicapped parking on the side of the building and the only ramp was around the front. Doesn't make it very easy in bad weather to move someone in a wheelchair into the establishment.

I was met by 2 smiling young people (probably 20 y/o if that) and was seated right away. Waitress came over and tried to push a bunch of alcoholic drinks on me. She got upset when I told her I didn't drink and only ordered a Sprite.

Ordered a rack of ribs that on the menu it states "Fall Off The Bone"... Well they were very dry, hard to cut and very little meat. It's pretty bad when it takes 10 minutes to knock off a total slab and sides. Next table over had 3 guests and with what they ordered took 4 servers to carry 1 plate a person. That kinda struck me as odd.

Well this location needs some help with how the staff interacts with it's customers when ordering and need to follow through with what the menu states.

“Very Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2013

Had the seafood pasta. It is a very creamy sauce that is garlicky and cheesy. The flatbreads are really good too. Son had the kids burger said it was juicy and grilled just right. Daughter had the pretzel sticks and said they were delicious.

“Typical Friday's, But With Very Poor Service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013

The food is fine, which is why I go here every couple of months (it's close by). However, the service at this restaurant is getting worse and worse and worse. I ate in the bar the last time, and it was a bit over 10 minutes to get a beer -- and I was sitting in an uncrowded bar!! And this slow bar service has occurred the last several visits. The bar personnel have no hustle at all. They have no energy. It usually isn't that busy, and there's plenty of staff, but the staff behind the bar consistently does not have any customer focus.

“your typical TGI Fridays”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

They provide similar food found in other chain restaurants like Applebee's or Chili's. Ok for hanging around with friends.
