DW and I arrived early for a reservation for 8 adults and 1 small child. Wife's 63rd birthday celebration on Christmas Eve. We sat in the bar and enjoyed a couple Friday's Signature Drinks. They are good drinks but almost devoid of any alcohol. My second drink was a New Orleans-style Hurricane ala O'Briens. The bartender was kind and explained that they usually only make their signature cocktails. But if I knw the recipe, she'd give it a try. A co-worker found the ingredients on the web and we were off to the races! The 2nd "Hurricane" was exactly what I hoped for and was very very good. It even had the alcohol in it.
Our guests arrived and we moved to our table. Our server was right there and took care of us like old friends. More drinks and app's ordered. All was good. Friday's does the App's to perfections.
For the dinner orders, some folks had burgers, a special salad, and other regular fast items. Three of us ordered 1-salmon, 1 bourbon glazed filet, and 1 regular filet. The burgers were good, the salad was fine and the other fast stuff was good too. DW liked her salmon. The 2 filets were both not good. Filets should never be tough, but they both were. My "Medium Rare" was well done at one end and medium the rest of the way. The other filet was suppose to be medium but came out well done all the way through. We should have ordered the sirloin.

We were there for a birthday and reserved as a birthday dinner, but staff forgot to mention or ask about it so we came home a celebrated here.

Fridays is a good place when you want standard food, and fun drinks. For fine dining hopes, go somewhere else.

Apparently it was a busy night for them. We arrived prior to our Open Table reservation time, and despite selecting a "high top" table, we were told that there is only one left, but it isn't cleaned off and that we could wait if we wanted... which we did. It took a long time for us to be acknowledged by a server. We knew what we wanted to order from drinks, to apps, to entrees. Since other servers deliver the food we hadn't seen our server in awhile. My husband ordered a second drink that didn't arrive until we were finished our entrees. A couple minutes later our server brought us our check. I had a coupon, so she had to adjust the check and give us a new one. I thought it was odd that she never came by to ask us if we were interested in dessert. By the time we left, the place was less busy. Guess we picked a bad time to go. That said, there were multiple time slots available on Open Table. Later, I received an email that said my reservation had been cancelled. Not by me. Apparently instead of checking us in, the hostess cancelled our reservation. I think we had the "B" team that night.`

Reservation was for 7pm and we did not get seated until after 7:30. We used OpenTable because we did not want to wait and I have never had an issue needing to wait with OpenTable at any restaurant.
After finally getting seated another 15 minutes went by and we still had not seen a server, we had to flag someone down to send us a server. She did finally come over and was very apologetic. The restaurant itself seemed a bit in disarray with a lot of dirty tables and a lot of empty tables (so I’m not sure why we couldn’t be seated at 7, unless they were just short waitstaff). And yet there were employees hanging around at the host station not really doing anything but chatting. Seems like someone could have chipped in cleaning off tables to help.

Before our order came We were brought complimentary nacho chips and salsa for the inconvenience which was appreciated. The finally food came, was hot, and tasty. The sides were missing from a chicken dinner meal, however quickly rectified.
I will probably think again about going in for dinner, but I have never had a problem with service at the bar. So I’ll stick with that and avoid bringing the whole family there.

I do not blame the server though - she was lovely and extremely polite and apologetic.

Waited too long for order to be taken. Waited too long for food to come. The food was below average. I have been to many other Friday's throughout the east coast and have always had a positive experience. One positive note was the hostess who greeted us when we came in to the restaurant.

Terrible!! The temperature of my steak should had been medium well and I got a very well. Came out the second time and it came out well again. Didn’t bother to ask again to fix it! Never got a visit from the manager to follow up on my meal New Menus new look for the restaurant, but old habits!! Need to work on the execution and presentation of your food.

Before check in we asked for a booth. We didn’t get that. Waited 10 more minutes for a booth. Got to the booth & there was food underneath the table. Had to wait a extra 10 minutes for someone to clean it up. Gave the lady my rewards account & she never added my points.

This was the worst experience I had. My wife's chicken meal was bad, the chicken was rubbery and it was sent back, She then ordered chicken tenders, in which it took about 20min or more to come out. My vegetables were cold on my salmon entrée, and the restaurant was not filled!

This restaurant has been declining for a while. In my last visit, every detail we requested was not followed. I asked for no pickles, and the burger had them, my wife asked for no seasoning on salmon and it had seasoning. We waited over half hour for food, and still wasn't right. Food had to go back. When it came back, it was cold. The restaurant was not busy, so there is no reason for any of this.. so disappointed and mad

After setting up a reservation for a table over an hour ahead of time, I still got to the restaurant and waited for about 20 - 25 minutes. The servers were confused and tried servings someone else's food on our table twice ! I do appreciate the fact that the team came out and sang happy birthday to my wife and son. That was the highlight of the evening...

We had an awesome, enjoyable evening. Though we were left unattended for almost an hour after having arrived for our standing reservations for 8 people at 7:30pm...TGIFridays mgmt made up for it.

Appetizers were provided, drinks were quickly ordered & delivered to our table and a very attentive staff was visible during the rest of the evening for our Birthday reunion girls' night out celebration waiting on us hand & foot.

Since TGIFridays is one of my favorite restaurants, I always reserve large gatherings for special occasions at this particular TGIFridays location in Easton, PA (and at other TGIFridays locations in the Lehigh Valley, PA vicinity) as it is an ideal central meeting location for many of our friends who travel from the Pocono area, Bangor and Emmaus, and Allentown/Bethlehem/Easton area to meet up.

There may have been glitches with our reservations or initial delays at this particular location, but the staff always makes up for it throughout the rest of the time we are there. The food, drinks, mgmt and the wait staff were all great!

I recommend this TGIFriday restaurant location & will continue to make future reservations there for our friendship gatherings & reunions throughout each year.

Thank you TGIFridays (near Route 33 and Freemansburg Ave) in Easton, PA for making our September 3, 2017 evening enjoyable & memorable with all of my Soka YWD Daughters: Ashley, Madison, Livia, Kandase & Brianna. Lots of great food, drinks, laughs, and good times!

The service stole the show! Most of the food was memorable. I reserved bar seats and was glad I did, because on a Friday night it was packed. All day HH was a bonus.
