I've been to many things Fridays and love the restaurant as a whole but the food at this place was terrible. The cheese dip to the beer cheese pretzel wasn't good as it always has been else where. My steak was chewy with lots of fat and gristle which again not the norm for these restaurants and my wife's ribs... More

I have eaten at this TGIFridays several times. It was very noisy, crowded, and not extremely clean. I got a sandwich that was ok, but there wasn't anything special about it. I think the prices are kind of high for the quality of food that was served

We go to TGI Fridays every time we go to PSU. The food is good and they have good drink specials. If you stay at the Sleep Inn or the Comfort Suites you get a discount at Fridays

The Spicy chicken sliders were particularly tasty. Get Zeus to make your Margueritas - They were SLAMMIN!

We stopped in for dinner around 6 PM on a Sunday night and it was perfect for a nice quiet dinner. My Wife had the Chicken dinner and I have a Caesar Salad which were both very good. The staff was very friendly and provided great service. The restaurant was clean. It was a very nice dinner... We would stop... More

Our server was excellent. The food was hot and prepared correctly. The manager that stops by tables stopped by ours twice in 5 minutes and I don't think she realized it. It was a good laugh. We didn't get any bar drinks.

I have to mention the smoothie I got because it was so delicious. It was the TRIPLE BERRY SMOOTHIE. Loved it! I also got the new NEW BOURBON BARREL CHICKEN meal with mac & cheese, and the coleslaw. I like creamy coleslaw better but it was still really good. The chicken was nice and tender. Had great service. We went... More
