Honestly it's not often we go out for lunch. When we do (like today) it's generally a half day at work due to the upcoming holiday. We always sit at the bar for both great service and good conversation. Today we arrived at about 1pm....More

Our chicken quesadilla had very little chicken in it, the french onion soup had a few pieces of bread with a little cheese on top, not covering the whole top as is customary. Cobb salad not as good as previously

Poor service from the kitchen. Servers tried hard to compensate but it was a terrible wait for not much. Food was not good. Next time we will go to Bountiful Bread.

Seated at 1:30pm for lunch on Friday August 5th. Waited 10 minutes...nobody came. Asked hostess where service was. Indifferent response. Waited another 5 minutes. Left and went to the Recovery Room. Waited on right away. Shame on TGIF. Won't be back again.

On a whim, we decided to meet people here for dinner as it was a convenient location for them. Mind you, we hadn't been into the restaurant since the late '90's when the bar was packed full, music was loud, wait staff wore all kind...More

Rude from the beginning. The hostess was new and she was very nice but couldn't find anyone willing to help her seat. (There were at least 2 girls standing right there). When she seated us we asked if there was a booth and a girl...More
