Strange place - a lot of vacant tables, but a long line of waiting people. Very nosy place. Service is slow. Food is good, if you have time to wait and keep up with noise. Waiters are very slow and not exactly "user friendly". Takes long time to get served.

After 45 minutes we still had to wait for our appetizers even though the place was only half full. Beers took 30 minutes. Never again.

TGI was located across the lot from the Marriot. Ate here on 2 occasions while in Philly for New Years. Dining staff was very friendly and provided service with a smile. If in the area again will stop by for some eats and a drink.

Never again. Arrived at 5:30 and wasn't seated until 6:40. There were so so many people waiting, at least 35, lined up at the door. There was at least 20 tables empty. I asked the guy who takes your name when you check in why those seats weren't being filled with us waiting, hot, hungry customer and his reply was... More

This Friday is exciting and a place to go. They have a singles and karaoke celebration on the 4th Saturday of every month. How lucky was I to experience the great service and exciting atmosphere. The food was on point as well as the customer service was outstanding! The karaoke was hilarious as well as the single program attraction. You... More

Wanted to visit because it was about the few which're still open at 10 pm. However, we're made to wait for 20 mins despite there's tables avail. NOT recommended!

Had I gone into the Ladies Room before eating I would have run, not walked, out of this place. The handicap stall had vomit all over the seat as well as the floor. Another stall had urine all over the floor. The paper towel dispenser had no paper showing and there was a knob to turn to get the paper.... More

I don't typically spend time reviewing chain restaurants because if you've been to one, you've been to them all. This one, however, earned itself a review for being one of the worst dining experiences I've EVER had, anywhere. I can understand being understaffed and overwhelmed, but this experience was absurd. We figured out what we wanted before anyone ever even... More
