Horrible place. Sticky table. Waitress was mumbling and I am pretty sure she was high. Bathroom looked like it hasn't been cleaned for two days. We had to run away didn't want to take a chance of trying the food there.

I was exhausted from travel and wanted some place easy and close and TGIF was across from the hotel. What a pleasure this place was. A live DJ had the whole place jumping. What I thought would be a quick soup and salad turned into a place I didn't want to leave. Staff was very friendly. If you are tired... More

Disappointing, waited ages to be greeted and shown to a table, then another wait before our server came. It was mid afternoon on a weekday and very quiet, both members of staff we encountered seemed to be uninterested in their work, we had to ask for this and that, took ages to pay as well but the food was fine

We always start a US holiday with a visit to the TGIF first evening. This restaurant was by far the worst we have been to. We agree with the other comments; slow service and boring food. The restaurant is shabby and in need of a renovation. Lots of people went back and forth behind our backs; employees, guests, but especially... More

Everything took forever. There seemed to be no cohesion between any of the staff. Don't bother coming here if you can help it.

Had dinner here during the holidays and it was a smelly place which wasn't clean and looked outdated and not up to TGI standards. Some stuff was broken, like the hot water for tea.. food was mediocre and ambiance was really bad. This TGI is a no go for us...

The worst service ever. I warn you not to go. The service sucks. They sat us by the door and all you smell is weed. Asked to speak to the manager and she was non chalant. I guess that's because she was young. You will regret it if you go. I've warned you you.

We became hungry in our hotel late at night. The only place open for real food was TGIF's. The food was fast, hot and fresh.

You can see the reviews I write and will notice I am not one for writing bad reviews in general. When I do, it's because the place was horrible. My level of tolerance and acceptance is above average, and I try to be understanding. So know that when I write a bad review, the majority of people would have had... More
