I visited on september 19th 2014 and Lauren at the bar accused me of having a fake ID. I came from NY and she humiliated me as she gave my husband his drink (who was a PA license) and told me that NY IDs are usually made of paper. Paper...are you kidding me!? The manager was just as bad. She... More

Great place to have a nice dinner and drinks. Food is always great, and now they have new appetizers that are simple delicious. You want to eat out during the week or on a weekend, pick TGIF. Another feature is you can 'call-ahead' for seating up to sixty-minutes.

By default, it's probably one of the best food choices. There weren't many in the area (unless you want ice cream for dinner). However the staff were very nice and the food quality was up to the typical TGI standards.

Met an old friend there and enjoyed a long leisurely lunch. We both had wonderful salads and long conversation. Service was great- no one rushed us.

We were back in the Allentown area over Fourth of July weekend. We visited this Friday's two more times! Again the steaks were all prepared spot on. The wedge salads were yummy, and one evening we all enjoyed a dessert! Staff was as friendly and efficient as they had been on our last visits. Great Job!

We were in Allentown for the weekend to visit Dorney Park. We had a meal here upon arrival our first evening. The service was great and I was really surprised how much I enjoyed my meal. (sirloin...they really cooked it great!) We decided to eat here again on our last evening. Same experience.

There is nothing special enough about this restaurant (in the very crowed casual dinning market) that will make me put up with the rude maître d'. My head almost exploded when she rolled her eyes at me. I had to take stock to think if it was me - nope. I might be back in a year or two, after... More

The food at this restaurant was good and portion size was plentiful also.One thing that was problematic was the lack of servers on the shift when we were there.It was during the week so there were only two to three waitstaff on but they were kind and attentive to our needs and also they were concerned about the food wait...

My family went to dinner at TGI Fridays in Allentown on a Friday Night. The restaurant area was not crowded, but the bar area was full. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive. The drinks and food were all very good. I enjoyed a filet mignon with my parmesan fries, but the broccoli that came with the meal was not... More
