The staff was nice but too layed back. We waited over 15 minutes before our server came and took our drink and app order. The place was empty, there was no excuse! Our food was good.

Service usually is not their specialty but their burgers are the best. The Jack Daniel's burger is amazing. Actually anything Jack Daniel's is off the hook! I prefer to stick to their drinks on special because they are stingy with their alcohol. They claim it's because they "measure" but I have been to places where they measure and I still... More

My daughter and I went to this restaurant after a movie across the street. The wait time was horrible and the hostess decided to take a family that came in after us. When asked why that happened she just shrugged it off and told us to wait. After waiting about and hour and the hostess taking 2 families who came... More

Service is good. Delicious string beans. Great French dip sandwich. Salad was fresh and good portion. Music needs to have more variety.

Four of us went there on Saturday night. The service was not good. After we were seated, we ordered drinks and appetizers. Out appetizer came first but our drinks was served at least 20 minutes later and we had to remind our server for it. I ordered a Guinness, the server came back after 20-25 minutes saying they do not... More

First of all, we stepped in the restaurant around 19:30 pm on a weekday. It wasn't buddy at all. Had to wait for a host or a greeter! There was nobody at the door. After 5 minutes we were finally acknowledged by, asked about a patio seating, girl said there was no space, even though there was. Had to wait... More

This Friday's is hit or miss. Some days they are on point with service and food, other days the kitchen is super slow. Today we had a experience. Our server was wonderful, she was very sweet and helpful. The food came out in a timely manner and order was correct

Wait was quick, food was edible, could of been more hot in temperature. Nice few of the lake. Free Valet parking was awesome. Price and selection of food is the same as most all TGIF nationwide.

This has been our neighborhood TGI Friday's for quite awhile. Well before Hurricane Sandy took it out of commission for over a year after. While the place physically, is a great makeover of the original, the service has suffered and gone from bad to worse. It was never great with service, but they had SOME talent before. At least you...
