TGI FRIDAYS - Leesburg
We go for every birthday celebration, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day
Good for the family.
initially we had a little issue with service but the manager, Wade and Kristen went out of their way and took care of matters better than we expected.
When we got there at 5, the restaurant was fairly empty, but it took a few moments to get the attention of the hostess. Our group of 7 was finally seated, but we had to ask for a waitress... we sat for 15 minutes before our drink orders were collected. Management did give us 2 free pretzel appetizers for the wait. Once we got our food, most of the party was ok, though some said their french onion soup lacked any onions; they use the same broth for the french dip.
Not really sure what was wrong because it wasn't very crowded. A 'manager' sat us in the bar, took our drink order but then disappeared without telling the server we were there and needed help. If it wasn't for the fact that the Jack Daniels ribs were on a special and tasted great this review would be much worse. Server was finally able to get things back on track but it really took away from the whole experience.
I met up with my cousin who flew in from Alaska from the Army for dinner. It was a good spot to meet in the middle instead of Sterling, Reston or Winchester. Dinner was good and decent. Its probably better than the on in Winchester. We didn't see our server much. The only problem I had was flies.
Lunch pairing special of house salad and chicken quesadilla was great at $9. To go cup of iced tea refill was much appreciated! Our waiter was quite busy since 2 employees had called out but he did well by us.
I ordered the chicken Cesar salad and green bean fries. The chicken on the Caesar salad was as tough as a pork chop and didn't actually taste like chicken. I asked the waitress to exchange it for something else and she was very accommodating. We didn't receive the green beans as an appetizer and I had to remind the server twice that we had ordered them.
This was a great place for my friends and I to meet. The food and service were on point. We were seated at a tall table in the bar area. We were able to talk see the screens if we wanted and the food was really tasty.
