Had dinner the other night and it wasn't bad. Had the Parma-crusted chicken with a small but good side of tomatoes along with mac/cheese. Good service and not bad food.

We stopped at this restaurant for a quick meal on the way to see a movie. When we entered, there were a few people. We were in a hurry so we ordered something simple - a burger and a chicken sandwich. After our order, a...More

I went to Friday's and Applebees both in one weekend and they are not the same and should not be considered the same venue even though their menus are very similar. Friday's ribs taste just a tad better, primarily because of the J/D sauce (...More

Typical bad TGIF food. I had the Jack Daniels chicken which was ... chewy. Sides were decent. Draught beer selection lacking, with only one local craft on tap. Great service at the bar, however.

We went on Thanksgiving night. The service was great, the food was good, and the price was right. We were traveling through town on the night will went, and we were very happy with our experience. I would go there again.

First impression: it's sooo cold here. But the delicious food and the outstanding service (from Hector) let us forget about that. Unfortunately we don't have a Friday's in Germany, so we enjoy it in the US. We had the Bruschetta Chicken and the Memphis Ribs......More

My visit to this restaurant 1.5 weeks ago was exceptional; the food, drinks, and service were all top-notch. However, today's visit was filled with one disappointment after another. Upon arrival, the hostess was nowhere to be found so we stood and waited. Upon being seated,...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 Houston, TX 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.
