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.

    We had to wait quite a while for our food to arrive, the service for the drinks was good. The waitress was lovely.

    But when we received the bill they tried to charge us for a full rack of ribs meal which no one had ordered.

    I love TGIFRIDAYS but there is one negative thing about it is that the music is so loud that you got to shout to hear people you dine with.

    I didn't have a great dining experience. I changed my table to a 4 person as we invited friends who at last minute cancelled. So we arrived and explained this to the greeter she led us to a table for 2. We always feel cramped on this so I asked to be seated in a booth. The lady said no these would be saved for larger parties as they were busy. She said it with quite an attitude. The annoying thing was that it was so quiet and 4 booths next to us were empty for the entire duration of our meal. So we could have sat there and not caused any issues what so ever and other 2 person parties were seated at booths. We then ordered and got our starters quite promptly. After finishing our starters we sat for 30 minutes with our dirty plates in front of us until our food arrived and they finally got rid of our plates. We also paid for refillable drinks which we barely had because the staff took too long to notice or drinks were empty. All in all appalling service from all your staff.

    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.

    Absolutely fantastic evening all staff were very warm and helpful from the minute we arrived, food was very tasty especially the cajun chicken pasta, my friend fully enjoyed her 30th birthday party, thank you all.

    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!
