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.

    Lovely waitress, very friendly, only problem was she also had several other tables including a birthday party. So had to wait rather a long time between each course. Food was very good, always is tho and came out quiet quickly. They also catered for my fussy three year old that wanted a sundae with out the ice cream.

    Great food, I had the full rack of ribs with sweet potato fries which was as good as I hoped it would be. Our server was friendly and attentive. Restaurant was very busy all around us, so kind of noisy especially with the happy birthday clapping malarky!

    Took a few minutes for anyone to approach us waiting at the entrance and not overly happy being seated away from the main restaurant down by the toilets, but couldn't fault the food, it was all lovely!

    Unfortunately the service was so slow it took us an hour to get a drink and 3 hours to get 2 courses. The waiter was lovely but the service was so slow and the roof was leaking heavy rain!
    Such a shame we usually love TGI

    Service slow. Food was cold.
    Manager rude. Had to put my coat on due to cold draft.

    The food was fantastic and with the Christmas menu deal it was great value.

    The restaurant was very cold and the service was very slow due to low staffing. I've found the same issue in the last few times I've visited there, service has gone downhill sine the Oracle TGIs opened. There were also no wipes after we had the sticky wings - they used to provide this before.

    Feel it is now over priced for the quality of food and service you get.

    I chose TGI Fridays as it was a lively, yet simple choice to take my niece to between the Christmas/New Year period. Standard of food in my opinion is average on a general scale, however on this occasion despite the restaurant being under a quarter full, the food standard was average to poor - Thrown together and over the average smothering in sauces. Hygiene was poor - sticky table with no cutlery. Service was terrible - Food arrived in good time, but we were as good as ignored by staff. When we asked for cutlery, it arrived at least 10 minutes later, and with one serviette between two. After starters and when main arrived, again, no cutlery, no asking if we wanted anything else. When we asked for cutlery and mayonnaise I ended up finding cutlery myself and our sauce request never arrived. Disappointing and reminds me of why I seldom go to a TGI Fridays.
