I enjoyed my experience immensely. Alison is a fantastic server. She anticipated my needs and I received my food and drink in a timely manner. She went above and beyond to make sure I got my rewards points, and was always smiling. As someone in the restaurant business, I truly appreciate the wonderful service she provided.

The hostess, Antoinette, did a great job of seating us and telling us that Jon would be our server. Jon was friendly and attentive, and took care of everything we needed.

My experience was wonderful from start to finish. My server, Emma, was outstanding. From anticipating my needs with a water refill after I had finished half of my first glass, to extra sour cream for dipping the chips in, to being friendly and attentive, I was highly impressed. I will be back, and I will be requesting her for every visit.

Our server, Chris, did a fabulous job. Even when there was an issue with the temperature of my friend’s burger, he fixed it right away! We will be requesting Chris every visit from now on.

Our server was extremely slow even though the restaurant was not busy at all. The manager appeared a couple times, but she never asked how we were doing. I’m disappointed, since we have received better service in the past. However, the server did honor my discounts.

Jen did a fantastic job as our server, as always. She was considerate, friendly, and always brought what we asked for on a quick and professional manner. It is clear that she is the top server at Friday’s, and I will make sure to request her on subsequent visits.

My server forgot to get me a refill for my water and then ended up bringing it the second time that I asked. Overall, I feel that since it wasn’t very busy, other staff could have helped my server or noticed that my water glass was empty. Nonetheless, I enjoyed my experience and the million dollar Cobb is the best item on the menu.

My server Nicole was excellent. Not only did she always have a smile on her face, but she made a suggestion each time she came to the table. She anticipated my every need, and even went above and beyond by asking if I would like more chips, as my entree was taking longer than expected. As a food runner myself, I know how important it is to receive great service, and Nicole exceeded my every expectation. I intend to request her each time I return.

Its supposed to be a family oriented restaurant. However the hostess was really tough with my kids. They grabbed the gift cards that are displayed at the counter and she took them off her hands and told not to touch.

My kids were puzzled and mom and dad were really angry

My appetizer was over cooked, and I told my server, who had it remade and the manager made sure I was satisfied. It was cooked perfectly the second time around. I am pleased that everyone responded in a professional manner to this issue.

Hadn’t been to Friday’s for a long time - and now I remember why. If you enjoy screaming, shrieking wild unmanaged children whose parents have no clue how children should behave in a restaurant - then this is the place for you.

Asked our server several times to see if the manager might help but I suspect this was beyond fixing. Appears there was some kind of celebration in the front room - which left young unmanaged children running though the restaurant. Was unsafe for servers and guests.

Food was as actually pretty good and our server tried her best.

But the overwhelming noise from kids whose parents clearly could care less pretty much ruined our dinner.

I must say that I have never been greeted quicker at Friday’s. However, it appears that the server was new, and when he told me that my entrée would be out immediately, it was not out for another 10 minutes. However, I still had a good experience, because the food was cooked well and I got a great price with my student discount.

Had trouble understanding why employees did not know we had an open table reservation. In addition, had trouble understanding why the restaurant was divided in half. If you happened to get a bar table, booth , or stool, wine and drafts were discounted. You did not get the same deal if you happened to sit in the main dining room. Segregation at its best. It was weird.

Bingo night. ...very young crowd, loud and understaffed. Food was good but obviously my food was ready first, and waited on the line for the other entree and had cooled off.

Service was absolutely awful. When waiter saw our party sit down he said it was way too many people with an attitude and offered no suggestion to the problem. When one member of the party asked for a to go box, he screamed at her. When asked how to win the round of bingo, he was extremely sarcastic. When we complained to the manager, she said there wasn't anything she could do and said we should just go eat somewhere else. Worst service ever and even though TGI has incredibly low standards, it was shocking how much attitude the waiter gave our party. He should be fired.
