“Poor Food, Vegetarian Unfriendly”
Reviewed December 3, 2013

I have been going to Friday's for several decades. While it has been a couple of years since patronizing them, this last visit proves why. The food we were served was at best, mediocre. The service was great. It is no wonder why I have avoided eating there for the past ten years.

“Terrific server - good food”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

We went here with friends and the food was good and the service was outstanding. Our server was very accommodating and attentive. The food was very good and the dessert so worth the wait and calories! We have been to this restaurant before and will go again.

“Going Downhill fast on timely food delivery”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

Did dinner with family while we were in town. Sorry we picked TGI Friday's. Seems to be the norm. for Friday's everywhere that service either sucks or food takes FOREVER to get to your table.
There were 6 of us, we were seated back by the men's bathroom. JOY!! Am I the only one that feels there should be NO TABLES by Restrooms?! Our server was nice enough, but not very attentive. Iced tea tasted NASTY, and i don't think she came back for 30 minutes so I could get something else. After our order was taken, it took forever for the kitchen to get our orders cooked and out of the kitchen. They were not that busy and now we know why. Don't need to go back & that is too bad because it is the only place in town we can get Pork Potstickers besides making them myself.

“Great experience”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Prices are OK, similar to comparable restaurants in the area. Service is friendly and fast, received food quickly. Have tried several things on their menu and all of them are good. Good variety on the menu. No complaints at all regarding flavor, variety or service.

“So Disappointed that I will not return!”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

I have dined at this TGI Fridays for a long time. Each time I have looked forward to a good experience and a good meal. This past Saturday I stopped in for lunch with my wife and was terribly disappointed.

The wait staff sets the tone, the tone set by our waiter was not the best. He seemed oblivious to anticipating anything we may have needed. Nothing was offered, it had to be requested.

I can get past that, everyone has a bad day...right. Unfortunately it did not end there.

We ordered an appetizer and requested that it be bought out with the meal that we were ordering at the same time. Why, because we ordered one lunch to share. Well it did not happen that way.

The appetizer came out without the lunch. 30 minutes later part of the lunch arrived. 30 minutes later we were informed that the rest of our lunch was not even started in the kitchen yet.

The nonchalant, matter-of-fact way that this was told to us was inappropriate. No mention of removing anything from the bill.

We requested our check and got out of there. Not sure if this is an isolated Saturday afternoon or a trend but unfortunately it was bad enough that we will not be back. There are plenty of restaurants around with good management that are willing to earn our business. We'll eat there.
