A friend invited me to TGIF for lunch. Has a beautiful atmosphere. The greeter was warm and inviting. The waiter was friendly. However served me the wrong app. But hey things happen. He was a great guy. Hope to come back soon.

Sometime TGIF can be good other times not so good. The one in West Orange, NJ was pretty good. Our server was really nice and helpful. We enjoyed the festive atmosphere of the place, it was the week before Christmas. The food was hot, tasty and good.

Wife and I came here for a quick appetizer lunch and it was pretty cool. Fast service and friendly people. No complaints at all.

Watched a sporting event, mid afternoon. All appetizers were half price. Interesting menu, some descent draft beers

I know it's typically three strikes, but at this location, two was more than enough. My first visit was with a group and we waited over 25 minutes just to order and another 45 for them to bring our incorrectly prepared food. The wait staff was inattentive and had trouble taking the order, so it was not really a surprise... More

Endless Apps Family of 5. Service is slow. Food took 20-30 mins to come out each time we ordered an app. The servers do not have a sense of urgency. Kept getting confused with order or just forgot to get what was asked for. Then half of them were just standing around. Seemed more concerned about bar area instead of... More

Convenient location off of 280 in West Orange. Nice atmosphere and ribs! Did not have to wait long for my dinner. The wait staff was great. The meal was not expensive.

My boyfriend and I came in to grab a appetizer and drinks. We walked in and the hostess didn't even welcome us. We were pressed on time so we thought by sitting at the bar would be our best choice. Well we were wrong. After 5 minutes of not even being acknowledged I was beginning to get a little frustrated.... More
