We called in advance for a group and our table was reserved for us when we arrived. The staff was friendly and helpful.

Went for dinner on a Friday night. We each had a side salad and opted for the unlimited apps. What a great deal. You have a list to choose from. I had the boneless Buffalo wings, another person the potato skins and third person had the chicken flatbread. You can't share the apps but it was still a good deal.... More

The wait staff deserves 5 stars, but the food, TERRIBLE! The only thing that was good was the boneless chicken appetizer. This used to be my favorite place to eat. Since I have not been to TGI Friday's in a long time, I had the urge this past weekend to go with my wife. We ordered 2 bacon burgers which... More

OK, I have to admit that it has been close to 10 years since we've been to this restaurant. There are so many great restaurants in the area, it gets lost in the crowd...and quite literally lost in its location tucked away in a low visibility spot in front of Cary's horrible Wal-mart. On the recommendation of a good friend,... More

We were greeted and seated quickly. Our waitress was Ashley. She was professional, friendly and super fast! Once we placed our order, she took flight from there! We did not have to ask for one thing, after that. Drinks were refilled, napkins provided and frequent follow ups. My 8 year old son even stated, "she is fast"! The food was... More

At a time of evening that should have been a quick stop - it was anything but - food took 25+ minutes and was wrong - manager acted as if it was a bother to have diners - food while not bad was just average - not worth the time when there are so many better choices close by

This is not an upscale establishment - this is the main reason my wife always resisting to go there. However, every time we actually eat in the TGI Friday's - we all like it, including my wife (she always orders ribs in there). The food is pretty tasty, portions are good-size, often having specials, maintaining loyalty program ("stripes"). For a... More

We ate lunch here today and enjoyed our meals! This TGI Friday's has the same excellent menu that you find in all their restaurants. They have lunch options that are smaller and can save you money. Their smaller portions will still fill you up!!! All our orders were well prepared and were seasoned well. The prices are reasonable and will... More

When arriving we were asked if sitting at the bar was ok. Having issues sitting comfortably, we mentioned sitting at a table with chairs is more comfortable, we were immediately whisked to a table to meet our needs. I am assuming it was the manager of the place. She provided us with such service, kind, and lovely. Our waiter had... More

Love their Cobb Salad! They seem to be understaffed at times, so it's hit and miss with the service. This restaurant is good for just a couple, or to bring 10 of your closest friends. There is enough seating to accommodate almost any size of party.
