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. It was very... More

I was very happy with the food . We had crab cakes a nice iceberg and filet mignon. All were cooked well. The service was a little strange but the food was not!

Always looking for a nice place in Visalia. This is one of the best. Prompt service, nice atmosphere, and good food. I had the Denver omelette; not too large, not greasy, and the potatoes were tasty. We all enjoyed our meal.

I have eaten here on three occasions. Have had a salad, steak and salmon. Prices are equal to the food quality and quantity. Service is attentive and prompt. Ambiance is great for a date or to take your wife for an intimate, quiet dinner. This is my favorite restaurant in the Visalia area and I have eaten in 25-30 of... More
