It's kinda strange to enter a restaurant in mid afternoon that appears pretty much empty but having to wait quite a while to get a table followed by slow drawn out service. It was ok but you felt like you were upsetting their schedule to get waited on and served food. They definitely are not looking for repeat customers

This location seems to struggle on service but the food is always good. Best quality - very close to the canal.

I arrived and showed them my stripes card. I didn't get my chips and salsa which is part of the deal when you have a stripes card. I was seated at a booth with no napkin or utensils. I waited forever and finally grabbed the first waitress I saw. She told me she had to get my assigned waitress. My... More

solid - decent menu - decent service - reasonable prices. not coming here for a five star meal, just the basics and that is what you get. good location attached to a handful of marriott properties across from white river state park

Typical for what you would expect from a chain. Mediocre service and below mediocre food. Which is fine if that is what you are looking for just do not expect more.

Bartender handed me a menu and I ask her about lunch specials. I got the lunch menu, but she was clearly annoyed. Probably thought she'd get a bigger tip if I stuck with the regular menu. After that, my lunch Caesar and Jack Daniel's sliders were good and came out quick enough. With $2.69 iced tea, little under $13. So... More

We ate here recently and there was nothing bad about the visit. Fast service, good drinks and decent food. Was not very busy for a Saturday evening.

Went in for a quick late night bite. Food was good. Experience wasn't anything special. Just your average night out.

We had a group of 9 in our party and arrived about 3:30. They weren't very busy, so no problem with seating us. Our server did a good job serving us and refilling our drinks, etc. We had a 3 year old with us, and you could tell that she had children of her own, as she made sure the... More

We had spent the day at the Eiteljorg Museum with my daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter for the Jinglerails exhibit and wanted to grab dinner before heading to the Lights at the Brickyard. We had worked up an appetite and walked across the street to Friday's. It had been years since I had eaten at this chain and always recalled a... More
