Typical bad TGIF food. I had the Jack Daniels chicken which was ... chewy. Sides were decent. Draught beer selection lacking, with only one local craft on tap. Great service at the bar, however.

We went on Thanksgiving night. The service was great, the food was good, and the price was right. We were traveling through town on the night will went, and we were very happy with our experience. I would go there again.

Service was slow. Had to ask for drink refills while she was standing right there at table. Paying bill took half hour and we were second people there after doors opened. Had to wait way too long to get ticket, get ticket corrected, get a manager to address our waiting problem( we weren't only ones frustrated at this issue either)... More

First impression: it's sooo cold here. But the delicious food and the outstanding service (from Hector) let us forget about that. Unfortunately we don't have a Friday's in Germany, so we enjoy it in the US. We had the Bruschetta Chicken and the Memphis Ribs... DELICIOUS!

My visit to this restaurant 1.5 weeks ago was exceptional; the food, drinks, and service were all top-notch. However, today's visit was filled with one disappointment after another. Upon arrival, the hostess was nowhere to be found so we stood and waited. Upon being seated, we were ignored and finally had to ask someone to find us a server. From... More

So disappointed after years of dining at THIS location. No one showed up to work both literally and figuratively. Shame on management for not caring about her quality of the food coming our of their kitchen. It was more like "put something, anything on the table" was all that was important after 30-40 minute wait. Even the drink refills, my... More

Went here two times in the past 3 months and received bad service both times, first time I saw my waitress 4 times in 50 minutes(order/drink/food/ticket) I thought that was bad then I had to wait the following time 20 minutes for a waiter/waitress, I lost patience and left. Worse service I have seen south of the border.

We went in to this Friday's after a horrendous experience at the next door Chili's (see separate review). We were seated promptly. Then we waited. The waiter who was apparently taking care of our area walked by our table at least 3 times, once making eye contact with me, but never saying a word. We watched as a couple who... More
