First, it was Taco Bell. Now, another big American food brand is coming to southeast Queensland: TGI Fridays. In fact, if you head to Robina on the Gold Coast from mid-December, you'll be able to choose between the two — because that's where TGI Fridays is opening its first eatery in the state.

While the US-based chain of bar and grill-style restaurants already has 13 other locations around Australia, it hasn't made the jump up north until now. That'll change from Monday, December 9, when Queenslanders will be able to tuck into its array of steaks, ribs, wings and burgers while sipping a hefty array of cocktails.

Exactly what'll be on the Robina Town Centre store's menu hasn't been revealed as yet; however, at its interstate eateries, it serves up 30 types of cocktails and seven kinds of mocktails. So, yes, it takes its drinks lineup seriously. Wine, beer by the bottle and on tap, and both boozy and non-alcoholic shakes are also on offer. And, so is TGI Friday's famed daily happy hour.

Food-wise, the general range also includes wraps, salads, starters such as mozzarella sticks and mac 'n' cheese-loaded potato twisters, and mains that span chicken tenders, cracked pepper calamari with fries, and cajun chicken and prawn fettuccine. The dessert selection goes heavy on American favourites; think brownies, sundaes and apple crumble.

Patrons can expect to enjoy their meals and beverages on the Robina Town Centre Promenade, with the store featuring both indoor and outdoor seating, a central bar, TV screens playing sports and an open kitchen. The fitout will keep the signature TGI Fridays look, which includes timber accents and industrial-style lighting installations.

As for the vibe, TGI Fridays pitches itself as part-way between a restaurant and a hangout spot. When the brand launched in the 60s, it was actually a singles bar; but these days it's focused on casual, novelty-based American dining.

Find TGI Fridays at Robina Town Centre, Robina Town Centre Drive, Robina from Monday, December 9.
