I had the Jack Daniels BBQ ribs at this restaurant which I really didn't need to add anything more to my hips but the ribs looked great in the picture and my serving looked , smelled and tasted great. I do believe I sucked the bones but I tried to do it without drawing any attention to myself. I waited... More

My boyfriend and I had just finished some holiday shopping at the Costco across the street from this eatery and since it was lunchtime and we were famished we decided to give it a try. We had previously eaten at the one in Virginia Beach and it was a good experience. When we arrived the place was practically empty and... More

There's absolutely nothing special about this Friday's, I don't mean that in a bad way. The food is what you expect from Friday's, if you like Fridays you will love this place as well Personally I like Fridays. The service is always good as far as I'm concerned the food is always good and the prices are very reasonable

Waiter was not very accommodating. On the menu, there was a "Cobb salad with Chicken". I asked for a "Cobb Salad without chicken". "just take the meat off". He said that they couldn't do that. End up getting a house salad which was pretty good. Everything else was okay but nothing to write home about.

I was staying in Newport News for a few days and ate here twice. Both times the staff and people eating there made you feel right at home. Atmosphere was cheerful and those working were outstanding. Service was phenomenal to say the least. Food was cooked as ordered, and the flavor both days truly great. Menu is set for those... More
