Doesn't surpise me. TGIF is a dump. All the other chains (Houlihan's, Ruby Tuesday, Applebee's, etc.) give much better service.

Everytime I go to TGIF (on the rare occasions), I always leave after complaining about something to the waiter or manager -- they never give in to any complaints. And I swear that I will never set foot in one of those places again!

I doesn't surprise me, either. I don't trust consuming cocktails at these chain-restaurants, or any of them. Better off ordering a bottled or tap beer.

Cafe` 34 is a ripoff , charging top prices for watered down booze. I`ll never go in there again. I hope the place goes out of business. What a disgrace.

Although Cafe' 34 has lasted much longer than the previous establishments there, I thought the owner/management had more class than to stoop so low. Their prices are high to begin with, and then do this? It certainly is a disgrace!

Pretty scary. If they do something like this with alcoholic beverages, I'm very afraid to think what liberties they would take with customer's food!!

I can't wait for the new MJ's to open (formerly the Buttonwood Manor), and put Cafe' 34 OUT OF BUSINESS!

It's discusting! Imamgine a very rich owner doing this to customers who pay BIG bucks for a drink. Wonder what kind of fine will be set and how long will they be closed? In this case they all deserve what they get. I wonder if there are going to be any civil suits by people who remember the poor drinks they drank?

Hi - Are you a TGIF manager?

Sounds like something a TGIF manager would find after a customer finds hairs in their food!
