I generally steer clear of chains because the food often has a “prepackaged” taste to it; therefore it had been a long time since I had been to a TGI Fridays. I was pleasantly surprised on my first return visit and about a month later followed up. On both occasions I had the baby back ribs. The vegetables were good... More

Went to TGI Fridays, love their ribs and am a "Stripes" rewards member. Service was sort of on a pendulum from crappy to ok. The food was not prepared correctly, the menu was not clear on ingredients, and staff and management was inept in resolving the issues. If you want more details, please ask.

The hostess said there would be about a 25 minute wait which was fine. We didn't wait that long but when we were seated we saw about 4 or 5 empty tables. We sat there for 10 minutes and no one even acknowledged us. No one took our drink order. I then got up and left. As we were leaving... More

Had an early dinner at TGIF this afternoon .. and thoroughly enjoyed it! We had salad and burgers at our table and everyone enjoyed his or her meal. We didn't save room for dessert .. but their cheesecake is divine!!

Multiple visits to this location and the service is consistently good. Staff is very pleasant and helpful. The food is generally good, particularly burgers/sandwiches. Tip: Eat away from kitchen to keep the noise down.

Chalk this up to being forgetful about previous visit. 2 for dinner. Wife's steak was cooked almost to perfection. My salmon/langostino would have been better had I just ordered the salmon. 4 langostino's and overspiced sauce made the toppings unenjoyable. Langostinos were cold and had been overcooked-pencil eraser level. Side veggies..broccoli, served at room temp, sauteed spinach overloaded and overpowered... More

After dealing with crowd and waiting on tables myself earlier Christmas Eve, my hubby decided to take me out for dinner and this was his choice. When we arrive were told 20 minute wait time. Since it was unseasonably warm, we decide to wait outside. The hostess comes out several times to call guests. 26 minutes later were still sitting... More

The food was very, very good and delivered hot. The waitstaff person was very nice but was a bit on the slow side. He forgot to come back to take our order, and forgot to refill our drinks.
