I was eating lunch with my 2 year old grand daughter and my waitress was very patience with us. I enjoyed the food, vendor and the atmosphere inside the place.

Easter Sunday is a day to do something special with your family, since I had a gift card..my daughter and I came here. I was happy to see that there was a nice crowd with lots of families. Our server was excellent and very pleasant; however service is quite slow (it's a holiday of course). We loved the flavored slushies...mango-peach... More

When we first arrived, we had to wait about 15 min to be seated, but at least half of the resturant was open. The waiter was extremely nice, but the time it took just to get drinks was at 10 min after he took our drink order. Then, once we ordered our meals, it was another 25 min until our... More

Went to TGI Friday's while on business and was very disappointed with the food. It's been awhile since I had been to one and I know why I haven't been there in awhile! Was not real empressed!

This was a nice place with the food being just fine. We were hjappy as long as it was edible. The facility was handy to our hotel down the street and the staff was more congenial than we needed. The waitress was a bit too friendly and worked us for a tip, which just requires service for us.

TGIF seems to have lost their allure, at least in the circles in which I travel. My wife and I just had burgers this time, we asked fir them well done, we got medium well. We were short on time so we just dealt with it instead of complaining and sending the food back. Service was"ok", and we've noticed that... More
