We had a group of 23 meet here for dinner after the Nutcracker on Sunday afternoon. While I had called several days in advance, they weren't exactly prepared for our arrival as far as tables. With a little shuffling we were seated, mostly together. That said, there were enough staff on to handle our group. The food was good for... More

Only a few other patrons for lunch today so I figured we'd be served quickly but not the case. Service was polite and friendly but food- salads and 1 sandwich took about 25 minutes. Decent menu options but a bit pricey at $12-$15 for an average salad.

If you stay at the Holiday Inn, this is a great option. Order from your room, and walk down to grab your food. TGI Friday's is a little pricy, but it was convenient in an unfamiliar city.

My fiancé and I dined here a few times during our stay in Buffalo. During our first visit, the service was great. There is options of restaurant seating or at the bar. We were seated straight away and the hostess was lovely. She was able to answer our questions and gave recommendations. The food itself was delicious. There is a... More

We miss TGI Fridays in from home. So when we decided to drive to Buffalo, we made it a point to visit TGI Fridays. Felt like a Tuesday because we were completely dissatisfied. It was far from the TGI Fridays that we got used to. Service was dry. The staff did provided some recommendations and was pleasant. But we hardly... More

The food is decent for a chain restaurant. The male hostess was so quiet I could not here him and he never cracked a smile. I would have appreciated a warmer greeting.The service was friendly, but not the greatest. It was nice that a manager came around and asked if everything was ok and if he could get us anything....

Being from out of state and not having a tgif I was super excited! Hostess sat us quickly and server was over shortly. She was wonderful. However the food was mediocre. I expected better. The restrooms were absolutely horrible tho, far from clean.

Thank Mykal H
