I visit TGI Fridays back home often, but the staff at this one should be a standard for this entire chain. I was taken care of by the Bartender, Will, and watched during my visit as the whole team worked together flawlessly. For starters, Will is a very talented bartender, and if you have the chance to visit this Fridays,... More

The place was so quiet and the service was good. The food was okay. The outside area was sketchy though.

Where do I begin? after driving around Buffalo on a Sunday evening without finding any decent open restaurants, my family decided to visit this place (against my better judgement due to my hungry toddler) on the way back to the hotel. I really had a bad feeling even as we walked in. We waited about 15mins in the lobby without... More

Service was slow, we sat at the bar which was dirty, I had to ask for it to be wiped. Drinks were expensive for the small amount poured, menu confusing with the different things offered at different prices in different ways. We had the all you can eat appetizers which was "ok". For what we had, one drink each and... More

The whole bar was sticky and dirty. When I complained, to the bartender, he only cleaned a square spot, just in front, of me! When being seated, by the waitress, she tried to seat me, at a lone, tiny table, hidden behind a long table, with several families, having a dozen, over-active children, despite the restaurant being 90% empty. I... More

Only because its handy have I spent some time at this restaurant. I was in town for a week and stayed at the hotel this Fridays is inside of. With a few visits, I was seeing all the staff very busy as it seems well understaffed. The food is fine and the new menu nice. It's help to have 2... More

Our server, Jennifer, was excellent to the point of getting us her personal wetnaps that she got from another place she had been for lunch with her nephew. We found the menu confusing and it was difficult to decide on entrees with all the combinations. Drinks were also a challenge. We weren't clear on the specials but all in all... More

We stopped in for lunch and we were seated right away. The service was very good. I had a Jack Daniels sirloin and the others had a Cobb salad. Everything was good.
