Service is pretty bad and cocktails are full of sugar but that Jack Daniels burger is immense so when I crave it I do return

Mixed feelings about this place. The food is very expensive but also not great. The burgers are inedible. At least mine was. It was clearly cooked frozen and was mushy and not cooked enough when I got it. I could not eat it. I just ate the french fries. In fairness, the manager did waive my charge for the dinner.... More

We visited twice for Happy Hour on the deck and found both amusement as well as annoyance at the number of dogs on the patio. Dogs are permitted on the patio (as well as a free roaming cat that surprisingly went unnoticed by the dogs). Some dogs were cute and well behaved whereas others were without doubt annoying with their... More

T.G.I.F should be standard any where... why is difficult for Panama to offer a decent service???? If it is not in the menu... forget about it! And yes... they don't care!!! If you have kids... they closed the playground and they don't even have crayons and paper any more. You don't have any view to the Canal, don't waste your... More

You know exactly what you want and you get it - TGI Friday's. Next to the Panama Canal Pacific entrance and part of the Country Inn & Suites this place is one of our favoured when in town.

I was so excited when I saw TGI Friday's right next to our hotel (Country Inn & Suites). The excitement didn't last long. Though the food could have been given a "C" the waiter made it a "D". He acted as if he hated waiting on us. It was just my husband and I, not a large group and the... More

All you Meridian Stayers ... come... More

When you have a corner on the market you should make the most it. This TGI Friday's does but seems not to care. The restaurant is attached to the Country Inn & Suites and has a golden opportunity for countless repeat customers. Attitude is everything in the hospitality industry and especially restaurants. A friendly greeting and eye contact are important.... More
