Went to TGI Friday's while on business and was very disappointed with the food. It's been awhile since I had been to one and I know why I haven't been there in awhile! Was not real empressed!

This was a nice place with the food being just fine. We were hjappy as long as it was edible. The facility was handy to our hotel down the street and the staff was more congenial than we needed. The waitress was a bit too friendly and worked us for a tip, which just requires service for us.

TGIF seems to have lost their allure, at least in the circles in which I travel. My wife and I just had burgers this time, we asked fir them well done, we got medium well. We were short on time so we just dealt with it instead of complaining and sending the food back. Service was"ok", and we've noticed that... More

Wasn't sure what to think as the restaurant is located in the middle of a Clarion Hotel which is doing construction. We were pleasantly surprised! The host greeted us at the door with a smile, found us a table and mentioned specials and made small talk with us. The server, Sydney, was super friendly. Service was quick and perfectly paced....

We haven't seen a TGIF near us in Seminole/Largo, we loved the one near our beloved Santa Clarita, CA. But we were on a Lowry Pk Zoo trip, decided it was too hot, & dashed in here. The food was just as good, had the "pick 3" appetizer of fried green beans, pot stickers & mozzarella sticks. Hubby had smoke... More
