TGIFridays is a typical midline restaurant with a bar. The food is tasty, the menu varied and everything is good. The problem is that it is just the same old TGIFridays. The decor remains and despite the menu update, the atmosphere is boring. A friend...More

My daughter got a coupon for Friday's so I tried it again. We all ordered sandwiches or hamburgers. They averaged around $10. They were OK, but I would prefer Subway for half the money. And at Subway they do not play too loud Musak. But...More

In Manhattan in 1965, there was no place where people could go out to meet friends and make new ones in an environment that was at once both relaxed and yet exciting. Then, Alan Stillman opened Fridays as a way, he said, "to meet Pan Am stewardesses." Suddenly, there was a place with great food, new and exciting drinks and an electric energy. A place where bartenders mixed the environment just as well as they mixed drinks. In short, a place like nowhere else. Today, Fridays in Vernon Hills, IL is still America's most iconic bar and grill. We embrace and celebrate our heritage as a bar. One that just happens to serve killer food in an environment where it's always Friday.
