Great pub and restaurant with good food and good selection of beer. Also has a wonderful happy hour with half price appetizers and discounted beer and cocktail prices.

TGI Friday's is my favorite 'chain' establishment. I used to visit the bar all the time during the summer and then the good staff left and the establishment went downhill. You could taste how 'frozen' the food was before they cooked it. Everything looked like it was just thrown in the oven or deep fryer before being delivered to the... More

We decided to stop here because the Newington, CT Ruby Tuedays is now closed in Newington. I understood that TGI Friday's had an all day Happy Hour so we thought we would give it a try. The place is dirty. Scraps of paper all over the floor. The entire atmosphere leaves you w/a dirty feeling. Lots of help behind the... More

All right chain restaurant. This place's bar is kind of cavernous and not cosy.We usually like the food especially the appetizers!

I hated the experience and will not advice anyone to visit this place. We ordered Bourbon Barrel Mahi Mahi in main course and it looked nothing like the picture in the menu, the quantity of the fish was smaller than an appetizer no clue why they have it in main course! It was 4th of July and the restaurant was... More

Stopped in to catch the football game. Beer was cold as all ways and the skins were good as well. Service was good and friendly.

I am not a hugh fan of TGI Fridays, but while in the area we decided to go for dinner and drinks. We sat at the bar area and Tawana was the bartender and she was amazing. My boyfriends mother wanted wine, but wanted it more like a spritzer and Tawana was all over it added fruit and made a... More

I am not much of a fast food or almost fast food eater and do not have much experience with it. We ran in for a quick bite and talk with a friend simply because we took the wrong turn and had no time. Decided to try their some kind of smokey stacked hamburger and it was better than expected....

I live in Boston and stop around Newington CT about once every 3 months on my way down to visiting family in NJ. There are many dining choices in this area, but I always look forward to returning here.
