TGI Friday’s Reading offers casual American dining in a bustling setting. Enjoy their renowned stateside dishes with a cocktail from the bar, and dine outdoors during warmer weather.

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.

A wonderful combination of vibrant cuisine and minimalist décor is evident at TGI Friday’s in Reading, an 8-minute walk from the Reading Rail Station.

    The dining experience was generally ok - the Winter bruschetta and Fajitas were lovely. However not all members of the party had cutlery when they arrived and the person who had the allergen menu did not have a place name with their order written on the back like the rest of the party. The two members of party who ordered the steak could not finish their meal as the steak was too salty and one asked for mixed salad instead of chips but got chips anyway. The puddings were delicious however there was too much cream at the top of the sundaes. The music was too loud so we had to shout to be able to hear each other.
    The cocktails were great and the service we received was brilliant.

    Absolutely loved it, we had such a friendly waiter called Marley. Who made myself and my partner welcome and had a good laugh with us also!

    I was disappointed with my visit on Friday, the service was slow, and not very friendly, won't be coming back

    The meal was very good and the service for the first time in ages was also very good. I do wish there was a low sugar desert like fresh fruit or cheese and biscuits.

    We were running a little late so phoned to let the restaurant know and they were fine. On arriving we were shown to our table. No drink order was taken and we waited around 15 minutes for our waitress to arrive who immediately apologised for forgetting we were there! Considering the restaurant wasn't overly busy we were a little surprised by this. Saying that, the girl was lovely and friendly... she took our food order but we had to say we wanted to order drinks... 10 minutes later the waitress came back saying sorry again ! This time for the wait for our drinks and offered us a soft drink whilst we waited saying that the bar was so busy, considering we were sat opposite the bar and could see 3 members of staff behind it not looking overly busy was confusing.. so my two friends ordered a coke and as I was only having a soft drink anyway with my meal I said I'd just have that to which she replied oh ok that will come with your meal ! so I sat waiting another 15-20 minutes without a drink... I could have asked for a drink to be brought over but to be honest I didn't want to hear another Sorry at our table... eventually the food came and all was fine... This feedback is was it says just feedback I am not making a complaint about the waitress at all...

    Waiting time for good was long. The good however was okay. Had to ask another position of chips as there were cold.
