Food Poisoning at TGI Friday's, March 19, 2011. I have been a long time patron of TGI Friday's in Columbia, SC, but I won't be eating there again. On March 19, 2011, I ate Friday's shrimp and broccoli and got food poisoning. Within 30 minutes or so I was violently ill, throwing up several times. I saw my doctor March 21 (since the 19th was a Saturday) & was diagnosed with food poisoning. I had never been that sick before! My doctor advised me to call the restaurant which I did. The manager I spoke with was not friendly at all & just told me to fax the doctor's diagnosis/bill to him & he would forward it to their insurance company. He basically came out & told me that if I had food poisoning it would take 48-72 hours to show up in my system. Whatever! I faxed the information & waited to hear from them. Nearly a month later (April 7) I finally got a call from the insurance company telling me that without certain medical tests to determine if I had indeed had food poisoning, I basically didn't have a case. No offer of any compensation was offered to me what-so-ever! I got stuck with the bill for my meal, my doctor's appointment & missed a day of work. It took several days before I felt back to normal. DO NOT EAT AT TGI FRIDAY'S....or if you do & get food poisoning, make sure you have the "right" medical tests done.
Every night is the weekend at this bistro, where families enjoy American kitsch and cuisine alongside partying singles..
The much-copied look of hardwood floors, decorative stained glass, checked tablecloths, brass rails and walls filled with knickknacks has been a staple at this restaurant franchise. Originally a hit for its frisky bar scene, Friday's is now known just as much for its kid-friendly entrees. The menu alternates between typical American fare (salads, potato skins, Angus burgers and grilled chicken) and modestly international cuisine like fajitas, wraps and pot stickers.
