We were there late on a Sunday night. The football game was on so we stayed for dinner. Parking is great with 2 free hours, not something you easily find in gatlinburg. The decor is a little run down and not your typical suburban TGIF, but your in gatlinburg. The food was average, we both had pasta, I've had too much butter where you can see it pool on the side of the plate and my wife Cajun pasta was totally blend. You meal might vary depending on the cook on that night. Service was slow was our server double also as a bar tender. Definitely will not return and will visit another place.

(The Pros) Great location in downtown Gatlinburg, includes two hour free parking. (Cons) My first time experience at a TGI Fridays and I was far from impressed! I had to wait 15 minutes for my cocktail and my husband ordered a Yingling and was given a Sam Adams, we were in good spirits so we over looked it! My husband ordered a burger but the bun was so soggy he couldn't eat it. I had pasta that was eatable but clearly frozen. The service was less than to be desired; no plates for our appitizer and no silverware until about 5 minutes after our entrees arrived. We even heard our serve mimick one of his other customers, completely rude!

We ate here on a Thursday evening. The place was "empty."
We both ordered the black bean burger. It appealed to both of us mainly because it said it had sliced avocado on it. When our plates arrived we realized that neither sandwich had avocado. We had to wait several minutes for our waitress to follow up on us. We explained the missing items and she quickly disappeared with both sandwiches to the kitchen. She promptly returned and we both had to laugh at the REDICULOUSLY SMALL slivers of avocado that we found when we reinspected! It was insulting to say the least. Rather than asking for more avocado (and spit) we took pictures so we could prove our case to management later. Although drinks were replenished in a timely fashion. The wait at the end of the meal for the check was too long.

We took a group of 10 to eat here. Everyone was very pleased with the meal and service. The waiter was very attentive and friendly while the food was fresh and hot. Not a complaint here!

The service we had that night was terrible. The waiter was to busy watching the football game to see about our needs. He came by table and threw our drinks and silverware down and didn't even stop. Could not get him back to table and had to get up and ask someelse to bring us a drink. We were very unhappy with our service
