Located in Hampden, CT, west of I-91 and about 20-25 minutes north of New Haven. Stand-alone restaurant in shopping center parking lot, so loads of parking. Place was about 20% full at 130 pm on a Thursday. A little bit and dark and somewhat gloomy inside. Hostess and waitress were cheerful and efficient. I had a California Grilled Chicken sandwich...

Great food and they sang Happy Birthday. There were a few birthday. As TGI Fridays members we get free chip and salsa, there was a 2/ $12 special food and drinks the first drink... More

I met up with friends for dinner and someone chose this TGI Friday's location. Service was friendly, looking over the menu there are not many options for a low sodium diet. I ended up ordering a salad with grilled salmon. (I asked them not to season the salmon) It was a Friday night so the place was loud, but it... More

My wife and I had a late dinner at this establishment and was totally disappointed by the service and presentation of food. Will not be returning.

We've eaten here before, with pretty good results, but lunch on Veterans' Day was a let down. My husband chose Friday's because the foodhas improved and he decided to enjoy a Vets' Day discount. I ordered a spinach flat bread to share for an appetizer (NO jack cheese, please). At least twenty minutes passed before it came out. It must... More

Food and service is very good, for the price. Bar area can get a little noisy, so if you're dinning with young children, ask for a table away from the bar

The staff was really nice and she understood no to place drinks and food in front of our 1 year old. The food was great. Tasted great and didn't take long to get to us. It was a quite place for an early dinner.

Having been under the assumption that all these corporate chain restaurants (Fridays, Chile's, Applee's, etc.) are the same mediocre animal, we hit the Friday's in Hamden while out shopping. Big mistake. The service was OK, but the food was pretty miserable. The burger was no better than the junk served at McDonald's: a couple of wafer thing meet chips, cooked... More
