My son and I stopped in TGI for lunch. We ordered the endless appetizers and got the potato skins, chicken flatbread, mozzarella​ sticks, and the boneless wings. The BBQ Chicken Flatbread was our favorite. Restaurant was clean and staff were friendly. The dining room is really small, so I bet there are long waits during peak times. Overall everything was...

The shrimp and ribs with their signature Jack Daniels sauce is second to none. Ribs are tender and flavorful. Shrimp is fried to a golden brown. Must try the cherry lime aid! It is a blast. Can't say enough about the Jack Daniels sauce. It goes with everything!

I went here for lunch on a weekend. It wasn't busy; the restaurant was less than half full on each side. The bar wasn't busy either. I had to wait about 5 minutes for a table to open up for one. I get it, sometimes there isn't enough staff around to take all the tables, but I saw at least... More

The food is decent but the wait to be seated is bad, service is slow and drink refills can never come. Trying to get the check to leave maybe a game of hide and seek, try another place

I usually like TGI Friday's, but this one is horrible. The service was slow, our food was cold, and our waitress was jittery and her speech was incoherent. I was very concerned with her taking our credit card to pay the check. A child vomited on the floor and the family left. The servers wiped the table with dry dishcloths,... More

Got in late around 11:30 and had steak/ribs, spinach and broccoli. The steak was real good and the spinach was delicious. Clean, nice restaurant.

Food ok. Service is slow. Servers are very nice but seem to care more about socializing with each other than taking care of customers.

Anything else is overpriced and brutally prepared. Stay away from salads. Service is excellent, but that's about it. Bathrooms unacceptable. Tried this place 3 times, never again.
