Bringing a true taste of America to diners, TGI Friday’s – Lakeside is a sought-after dining destination for visitors at the Lakeside Autopark. The vibrant setting is a great place to enjoy grilled dishes and cocktails, and there is al fresco seating as well.

Jam-packed juicy burgers are the highlight of the TGI Friday’s menu. Enjoy prime cuts of British Isles beef topped with a range of exciting ingredients, like the ‘Bruce Lee’ with spicy Asian slaw, crispy noodles and jalapenos. An American grill menu serves up hearty dishes like tender rump steak, baby back pork ribs glazed in Jack Daniel’s, and Cajun-battered shrimp.

Famed for its fantastic cocktail selection, diners at TGI Friday’s can challenge bar tenders to rustle up a mix from its 500-strong list, like the classic strawberry daiquiri, or the signature raspberry-spiked Haymarket. Cooling slushes, chilled beers, wines and thick shakes are also on offer.

There is something to tempt every palate at TGI Friday’s in Lakeside. Chafford Hundred Rail Station is just a 5-minute drive away.

    First waitress we got was very rude and hassled us many times while eating our starter so we asked to change waitress and the second one we got couldn't of done a better job she was so nice. Only negative about experience was the music was very loud and you can barely hear each other speak.

    Food was nice but not very hot.

    I know it was Christmas time but our booking felt very rushed, our lovely waiter had literally just lifted our starter plates off of the table when another guy, think he was a manager, appeared beside him with our main meals, he did not even have time to get us any new cutlery and the manager guy did not even check if we had any or not. I had also asked for sweet potato fries with my burger and it came up with normal fries, when I said to the manager guy about this he really did not want to take my plate away and get it corrected, he just insisted I take that plate and he would bring me some extra sweet potato fries, "straight away", needless to say we never saw him or the sweet potato fries again, just felt like he wanted us to get the food as quickly as possible and get it out of his way! Shoddy service, and he looked super harassed and irritable.

    So good! We arrived 30 mins early and that was no problem at all, the staff sat us down straight away despite the restaurant being packed and others who hadn't booked a table were still waiting. We were served very quickly and our food arrived fast, surprising as the restaurant was so busy. My family had refill drinks and we did not even have to ask for it to be the-filled, our waiter just bought over another drink when he saw empty glasses! Amazing food and lovely staff
