Description

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 San Diego, CA 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.

    friday's food is pretty good. i like getting their appetizers during happy hour because they are half-off. they also have cheap drinks. their servings of drinks are a lot bigger than your typical bar/club and 1/2 the price also. the long island ice tea and margaritas are great.=D

    It's hard to find parking in downtown which is a bummer. This place opens late and it's quite busy. The service is good and I would go here with friends.

    TGI Friday's is okay....the food is pretty typical and can be found just about anywhere. It's family friendly, which is a plus. They also have some pretty good drinks. Overall, not my favorite restaurant.

    Dining with Drunks

    Located in what I believe is almost the center of the Gaslamp district, late nights your surrounded with bar hoppers and club goers who had way too much to drink so don't expect a great dining experience or service from all the heat the workers get from the passer byers.

    This place has a long waitlist on friday nights. The bar is placed in the center and is quite weird. I recommend the happy hour!

    This is one of the best located TGI in San Diego, right in the heart of the Gas Lamp quarters. It has a few tables outside on the side walk, if you are lucky you get one of those. Great place to hang out and do a lot of good quality people watching.

    Variety is the Key

    6/05/2007

    Call me crazy, but for a chain restaurant this place is pretty dang good. The menu is as creative as it is varied. If you want fun food, good service and prices that won't break the budget downtown, this is it.

    Decent service, so-so food. You'll have an okay time there, but you'd be better offer experimenting with some of the other restaurants in the Gaslamp.

    They are trying too hard to mix it up with the food. What is "Fried Mac & Cheese" Who decided to try that one out. The place is really loud too.

    A waste of $60
    SDforever (3 reviews)
    12/04/2006

    Bad from the start...After 15 minutes, I seated myself. My Ultimate Berry Daquiri was watery. My server was unattentive. After 45 minutes in the empty restaurant, our food arrived. Awful! I never send my plates back to the kitchen however in this case the shrimp smelled like stinky boots. I asked for extra lettuce for my salad and the server told me he'd have to charge me if he couldn't steal some from the kitchen. Awful! I will never return. It was a nice Saturday until eating at Fridays. The experience cost $60 and left me grouchy.

    Great Variety

    12/01/2006

    TGIF is known for the casual atomsophere and their great variety on the menu. I love to eat here because the menu has the classic favorites, but it also has something new each time you visit. Be sure to try the sampler appetizer and come with an appetite.
