This place is owned by Knotts Berry so there is no Happy Hour and prices are expensive. Couldn't believe that a franchise would allow standard advertised offerings to not be offered at this establishment and it's outside knotts berry not inside the park.

No need for the salt shaker in this restaurant everything is overly salted and overpriced. TGI Friday's is more concerned about you were drink order than your food order most likely because they don't make any money out food they're making money off their booze...More

After visiting London TGI we went here. Had to queue for a table for 20 mins, so waited in the bar. Bought a couple of draught beers after a 10 min wait, even though I was the only person at the bar. The small beers...More

In Manhattan in 1965, there was no place where people could go out to meet friends and make new ones in an environment that was at once both relaxed and yet exciting. Then, Alan Stillman opened Fridays as a way, he said, "to meet Pan Am stewardesses." Suddenly, there was a place with great food, new and exciting drinks and an electric energy. A place where bartenders mixed the environment just as well as they mixed drinks. In short, a place like nowhere else. Today, Fridays in Buena Park, CA is still America's most iconic bar and grill. We embrace and celebrate our heritage as a bar. One that just happens to serve killer food in an environment where it's always Friday.
