Every time I stop in here for a beer I always forget that all the beers taste the same. Kind if like a cardboard box. The lines are dirty and it's been this way for over a year. Have any one of the beers here on tap and they taste different than anywhere else. Not in a good way. I... More

I have eaten at this TGIFridays several times. It was very noisy, crowded, and not extremely clean. I got a sandwich that was ok, but there wasn't anything special about it. I think the prices are kind of high for the quality of food that was served

We go to TGI Fridays every time we go to PSU. The food is good and they have good drink specials. If you stay at the Sleep Inn or the Comfort Suites you get a discount at Fridays

The Spicy chicken sliders were particularly tasty. Get Zeus to make your Margueritas - They were SLAMMIN!

We stopped in for dinner around 6 PM on a Sunday night and it was perfect for a nice quiet dinner. My Wife had the Chicken dinner and I have a Caesar Salad which were both very good. The staff was very friendly and provided great service. The restaurant was clean. It was a very nice dinner... We would stop... More
