My family has always enjoyed TGIFridays. We visited the one in Raleigh NC which served the same good food as every other TGI restaurant. The thing that stood out about this place was Levi, our waiter. He was polite, friendly, patient and helpful. Thanks Levi.

We arrived about 7:30, we were seated right away, wait staff was professional and very attentive. We were served our dinners within 15 minutes from the time we. Ordered. Shrimp 🍤 pasta 🍝 was amazing!

This an older establishment, but busy on the Saturday I went. Our waiter Chelsea was fabulous. Even though she was busy she was patient and provided us with all we needed. The food was good and came out fast, was hot and tasty.

We had the pretzel appetizer, which was delicious. I had the Cobb salad with balsamic vinaigrette dressing (Excellent, as always!) My husband had the mahi mahi with mashed potatoes and broccoli, which he loved. We both shared the brownie and ice cream dessert, and it was truly one of the best desserts I've ever had. More importantly, the service was... More

Slowest service ever, didn't get food items. Even the manager did nothing about the horrible lazy service. Stay away!!!! Bathroom trash was overflowing and all over the floor. No attempts to clean it I know because I was there for almost 2 hours.

I purchase the same thing each time...sizzling chicken and shrimp. The chicken is never dry and the melted cheese, sautéed peppers and onions add the finishing touch. The shrimp is cooked with a tomato base, giving it additional flavor. It was busy that night, but the kitchen and waitress didn't miss a beat. SN: They now offer small plates of... More

My husband and I went out to dinner and the service was TERRIBLE!!! The waitress could not remember our order and when she brought out my wine it was in a glass that had lipstick on the glass. Our meals did not get to us for 45 minutes after we ordered. I will not be returning!!!

We went here for dinner on a Thursday night. It appeared to be only about 25% full. It took a group of 4 people 30 seconds to decide where to seat us and then they put us right next to bar. There was a group talking very loudly at the bar. Otherwise the noise level was moderate. The menu had... More

Our table was dirty and the menu sticky with some sort of syrup. The bathroom was very dirty and had no toilet paper.
