It was a year to the day that we revisited here to use a reward. Greeted by a friendly waitress/hostess who asked our seating preference. Patio was unavailable due to the extensive construction underway outside renovating the entire plaza. Also, this location will be relocating to a new facility under construction on the Butler North grounds. Our waitress Sarah took... More

We were starving and stopped in for the Endless Aps. We had a great server named Sarah who was very attentive, friendly and professional. I can say that although the endless apps sounds great it only includes a few of the apps on their app list so it is slightly misrepresented...for instance if you like the spinach/artichoke dip...it's not on...

We had lunch just the other day. As always the servers were very cordial and the food tasty. When we want good food and drinks this is at the top of the list.

Stopped for the night in Gainesville while traveling home from visiting relatives. TGI Friday's was just down the road from our hotel so decided that it would be a good place for dinner...worst decision we made on the entire trip. They were very busy, but said wait for a table would be less than 15 minutes...they were correct on this...we... More

Even with a lot of latitude being Thanksgiving (thankful they were open), felt poorly managed, understaffed, and poor food. Remember now why we haven't eaten here in 20 years.

I think most people have been to TGIFridays and know what type of place it is. a variety of casual food from burgers, sandwiches, ribs, salads, full bar. I think most people overall enjoy Fridays b/c there is something for everyone on the menu. The reason I am writing about this particular location is b/c of the really good service.... More
