Even though we were seated right away and got our order in soon after. We waited for a half hour for our server to notice that we hadn't received our appetizer, after another 10 to 15 minute wait a manager came to apologize but by that point we were ready to leave having only been served a flat coke and...

I hate this location. Do yourself a favor and drive up to Brick. The Toms River location had consistently messed up our food orders, the servers were neglectful and it just isn't worth it. If you want cold food that you didn't order, and play a game of hide and seek with your server, make sure you check this place... More

Went there for Christmas dinner since we did the family thing the night before. Great service and the people were great also. Jack Daniel ribs were excellent as well as the Cesare salad.

I cannot believe that I am giving my endorsement to a family style restaurant, but let me tell you the food here is good and seems to be getting better and better. There is a choice for everyone and everything is well made. Additionally the service is friendly and efficient. When you're taking the family out this is a good... More

I really like the remodel. Much brighter and open. There are certain dishes I like and stay with. All the jack daniel's stuff I like. Good for a reasonable night out.

Went on Valentines Day....yes this is normally a busy day but there was not wait for a party of 9. The service was slow and was a HUGE upset when the waitress "sniffed" my drink (yes I said sniff) when I asked her why she did that she said because I'm not sure what it was. So needless to say...

I had not dined at a TGI Fidays in about two years. The Toms River location has been renovated to an open air style, and looks nice. However, the menu prices have really been increased. I couldn't believe that they have an ala carte steak for over $27 ! We had started with a wedge and caesar salads, and then... More
