The good news: Every Wednesday at TGI Friday's you can buy any bottle of wine on the menu for half price during lunch hours, and they do have a decent selection of wine. The Ecco Domani pinot grigio was only $11.40 - less than I can buy it for at a liquor outlet.

Without the wine, lunch would have been unpleasant. It was cold in the restaurant, and we had to ask to be moved from underneath one of the AC vents.
A strange smell, faintly resembling fish rotting, greeted us as we entered. It got more pungent as time passed, and eventually our server even mentioned it. She said it wasn't coming from the kitchen. It didn't abate.

I ordered the chicken pecan salad entree. The fruits and greens were good, as was the dressing, but the chicken missed the mark. It was baked (or fried) in a type of nutty breading, but the breading was kind of squishy and tasted like it wasn't well done enough.

I've eaten at other TGI Friday's. Comparing this one, it's kind of dingy and didn't seem very clean. One of the servers was cleaning the table vacated next to ours with dirty looking rags, which made me want to spray our table with antibacterial cleaner.

Our server was very friendly, attentive, and efficient. The tab for a bottle of wine and two entrees was about $35. If not for the half price wine, this lunch would have been a tremendous disappointment.

Family of 4 went to celebrate family occasion on st. Pat's day. We were nervous they'd be busy due to holiday, but wasn't. Settled right away in a booth per request. Kids enjoyed smoothies, and we liked the green beer. No complaints on server- she was okay, but in no way great. Food was mediocre at best. Two hamburgers were so dry, and ribs were overlooked. Worst part of whole experience was being stared at whole to time by another server.

So you had a hard week and have decided to take your family out for dinner. If you are looking for place that is overpriced, dirty, with lousy food this is the place for you! Our meal was served cold ( though it was a chicken on rice pilaf dish and the vegetables were like rubber.) We sent it back and it was served a second time by the manager who apologized for our inconvenience. I appreciated her kindness but nothing could make this meal any better.
The restaurant is dated, dirty, cold, and over priced. Save your money and if you are in the area try Blaze Pizza, Dairy Queen, or any other of the local restaurants. This place is terrible; a tired old franchise that needs to close down.

The front hallway was crowded when we arrived on a recent Sat. night. We were told it would be a 25 minute wait. We found two stools at the bar and decided to order and eat at the bar. Our bartender, Heather, was very friendly and attentive. Since we are members of their Stripes Club we received free chips and salsa. The menu offers a wide variety of items. I ordered the Pick 3 For All, which included wings, pot stickers and stuffed potato skins. All three were delicious. The BBQ sauce on the wings was perfect. They pay attention to details, including teriyaki sauce for the pot stickers and two other dips for the potato skins. This “appetizer” was more than enough for a full meal. My wife ordered the spinach flatbread pizza and a chicken Caesar salad. She said both were very good, especially the flatbread pizza. Our server/bartender made sure everything was OK and that our glasses were never empty. Don’t bother waiting, just find a seat in the bar area and enjoy!

What you would expect from a Fridays. Food is average and a decent variety on menu. Service was good! We had a very large group at the last minute and they did a nice job making us comfortable and getting us taken care of. Good for a staple and family friendly.
