Making its Bournemouth debut at Bh2 Leisure in the heart of the town centre, TGI Fridays is an all-American diner bursting with big personality and even bigger flavours.
Step foot into this vibrant restaurant for a warm welcome and cosy seating. The Bournemouth restaurant has a mixture of booths, tables and platform seating to suit your party and it occupies a prime position overlooking the town’s beautiful Lower Gardens.
Food for all reasons
The menu is distinctly all-American, with mouth-watering sandwiches, salads, juicy burgers and steaks and indulgent desserts and cocktails. Besides the food, TGIs loves to make a fuss of any occasion – whether serving free pancakes with every meal ordered on Shrove Tuesday or decorating your table and gathering the team around for a live (distinctly unsubtle) serenade to mark your birthday.
The appetisers give you a taste of what’s to come with tempting light bites like popcorn shrimp, chick-cone (Cajun chicken served in sweet waffle cones) or perhaps a Grab and Dab Chicken tossed in your choice of hot sauce or glaze. If you’re in a group you might want to plump for a sharer, which gives you a selection of starter favourites for 2-4 people.
If you like to know exactly what you’re getting, TGI Fridays’s ‘Create your Plate’ lets you make your own combination of elements to build the perfect meal. First, you choose your dish – maybe some vegetable skewers, a chargrilled salmon fillet or 6oz rump steak, then select your sauce or glaze from six choices including the company’s trademark Jack Daniel’s glaze, Scorpion hot sauce or Cola glaze. You then complete your dish with two regular sides or one ultimate side with formidable names like ‘Animal,’ ‘Warrior’ or ‘Sam Adams’ fries.
Dine Fridays’s style
Other classic mains from the restaurant include pasta and salads served with the textbook TGI Fridays’s flare, sizzling fajitas which arrive with a fanfare on a crackling hot skillet, ‘cheeky chicken’ dishes and spicy tostada stacks. Onto the grills, with a section of beef ribs, chargrilled chicken and shrimp and tasty steaks each smothered or drizzled your favourite Fridays’s way.
Ditch the knife and fork with TGI’s ‘Hands On’ choosers – a selection of hot sandwiches and hot dogs served up the way you like it complete with your choice of topping and side. It wouldn’t be an American diner without a fine line-up of burgers and TGIs goes to town with this lot. From flame-grilled beef patties piled high with your selection of cheese, sides and ‘load-it-up’ toppers to a ‘choose your own burger builder,’ where you can mastermind your whole plate, you’ll find plenty here to get your teeth into.
If you’ve still got room for a sweet treat, TGIs is big on desserts too. From tipsy Jack Daniel’s sundaes and whiskey cakes to an outrageous cookie pie and even a birthday cake (milk) shake, there’s lots of options if you’ve got the stamina!
Kids are also well catered for, with Little League and Major League dishes featuring the traditional TGI’s flavours tailored to simpler palettes and smaller tummies!
Cause for celebration
As much as this place revels in an special occasion, TGI Fridays absolutely loves a cocktail – with 500 or more listed lovingly on its vast bar menu! From signature tipples like the Long Island Ice Tea and Jack’s Southern Belle to tasty classics including Mojitos, Woo Woos and Caipirinha; daiquiris and margaritas to stylish Martinis, whether you’re marking a landmark celebration or simply toasting the start of the weekend, they can mix up a suitably impressive beverage to match the mood.
