Had a fairly nice dinner here on Sunday night. It was nothing special, and the service was very, very slow.

We used to like TGIF. May be we were just unlucky with this one. All the draft beer was off; after a long wait the waitress brought us the wrong mahi mahi meal which was cold. We should have sent it back but we had already waited a long time and we just assumed that we had misread the menu.... More

Food delivery took so long and it wasn't right. Driest Mac & Cheese ever, ribs had little to no meat, Dinner for 3 was $90, took an hour and a half and if I had seen the Subway across the street, I would have saved a lot of time and aggravation.

I was at this location on city avenue in December and was blown away by the lack of attention in every way. So today I decided to try it again. I sat at the bar for 20 minutes without being acknowledged. I am white ....non prejudice but felt if I was afro American someone would have approached me. I got... More

Visited in February 2017. Very nice restaurant just a block away from the Sheraton where I was staying. Clean place. Efficient staff. Obviously the usual TGIF menu. Food was very good and served hot. Good selection of beers. I found it odd that it is located in a very diverse area yet I felt I was the only white person... More

This Friday's is conveniently located in the museum district of Philadelphia. Although the service here is usually slow, I have been coming here for years and never had a problem with the quality of the food. Prices are very reasonable.

While staying at the Empress Suites Hotel on Ben Franklin Pkwy we had a TGI Fridays right next door. We were going to wander down the street to one of the other restaurants but after being out sightseeing for 2 days we decided to go here. The food is very good and had a sizeable menu. It had good atmosphere... More

We had breakfast here as part of our package with staying at the Embassy Suites. Breakfast was just okay. Restaurant was filthy. Patio outside had not been cleaned and it was disgusting to look at. Wait staff not pleasant. Did not want to be there. Hostess, however, was very pleasant.
