Revered for its burgers and grill, this iconic TGI Friday's restaurant sits opposite the hotel. Relax in the classic American diner-style atmosphere, where meat-lovers can banish hunger with a towering beef burger oozing sweet ‘n’ smoky Jack Daniel’s glaze, candied bacon and Monterey Jack cheese.
Seafood lovers will enjoy the crispy Cajun-battered shrimp, while vegetarians have a generous array of options to choose from. Daily specials range from succulent tapas through to potato skins loaded with Mexican fillings. Lifting the casual ambience to new heights is the careful attention to an authentic American presentation.
