Great food!

The food at Tommy's is always really good! Whatever you do, don't try to order something during happy hour that's not on the menu! Chef gets really upset if you attempt to. Having said that, the food is always great, service, well, attitudes could probably be improved.

Good service and very tasty food. Try the burgers or the meatloaf. The pastrami is also very good. Bottomless drinks rounds it all out. Thank you

Had the Lobster and Shrimp pasta and it was delicious and actually came with a whole tail on top! Very filling but had to share their famous bread pudding with my wife, it is worth going to Tommy's just to get this.

Took care of our drinks (we brought 3 beautiful bottles of wine from my cellar and the waiter brought several different glasses for the different varietals of wine that I brought)-opened all the bottles...

The food was ok, for the price I expected better quality of food with lots of flavor. I did not get that. This place is over rated. The waiter made me feel as if I was wasting his time as if he had better things to do. The quality, flavor and portions were not worth the price. I'm sorry to... More

This was my first time at Tommy's. We were a group having our Christmas Office dinner. The service was excellent and friendly. The food was very good and enjoyed by all. My Prime Rib was cooked perfectly and delicious. The atmosphere is exceptional. We'll be returning soon.

We had a very enjoyable dinner with family at Tommy's. Service was very good. Waitress very attentive. We enjoyed steak taco appetizers. We tried their Tommy's label house Cabernet and it tasted nice, so we ordered a bottle. We ordered another bottle as we enjoyed it so much. My wife and I shared the Cedar Plank Rib-eye.
