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 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...

    The hot chicken wings and chicken in Jack Daniels sauce and sesame seeds were excellent, as was the duck fajitas. In fact it was all yummy and the the staff were very welcoming and friendly. We will definitely be back!

    First time i've had the bucket of bones. Instant hit. Great ribs and garlic chicken wings. Burgers good as usual but chip portions were pretty mean especially they are the cheapest part of the meal. Always think the food is good and the staff are very friendly but as usual the service was very slow. I had to ask for someone to take my order and from start to finish the meal took nearly two hours. Not the first time its taken 30 minutes for food to arrive at this restaurant.

    We were seating straight away after booking online. The restaurant was clean, tidy and atmosphere was great! Drinks order taken within 10 mins. Staff were friendly and didn't leave us waiting between courses. The food was absolutely amazing. I'm going to say the steak was the tastiest I've ever had. Kids enjoyed themselves.
    Thanks so much for a great evening we will defiantly be returning
