A delightful find in an old school house

We were there for lunch. The service was wonderful. I started gg with a cup of wonderful crab bisgue. It was full of crab and had the most delightful aroma you can imagine. My wife had the grill shrimp and scallop salad which had carrots, onion marinated asparagus and jicama. My Tuscan chicken... read more

First time to the area visiting family...they suggested Tams. The food was so good and it was not over priced.

Upscale dining in Cumming. Combine with a visit to The Cumming Playhouse. Excellent food and service. Attractive setting. Can accommodate large groups. Convenient parking.

Recently, my wife and I attended a birthday dinner at Tam's Backstage. It was our first visit. We enjoyed a delicious meal, excellent service, good wine and a reasonable price. We highly recommend Tam's to everyone. We will be back.

Great for a ladies lunch, celebration dinner or just a get together. We have used Tam's for small events, using their upstairs rooms and have been very happy with the service and the food. More often we take out of town guests or just meet for lunch. Always good, everything we have had has been delicious and service is good!... More

I went to Tam's for business lunch. I love shrimp & grits and had an amazing version at another restaurant just a couple of weeks earlier. I was excited to try this at Tam's. We had been here for dinner several years ago at the request of friends we were treating. I remember an excellent evening, good service, and very... More

My wife has been here several times with girlfriends, and raves about the place. Tonight we went with several other couples (my first time there). First, it's a wonderful setting. Very charming and classy. Second, the service was absolutely excellent, even though there were 7 of us at the table and the restaurant itself was fairly crowded. She took very... More

The food is consistently awesome at Tams. We have been here with a large group and the buffet service was great, and table service is even better. The servers address your requests and the food is freshly prepared.

Do you love prime rib? Well, my wife and I do. It is so hard to find a well prepared prime rib. So when we saw that Tam's offered this flavorful cut of meat we just had to give them a try. First visit do not get discouraged if you pass by their establishment. We had to circle the block... More

Always enjoy the restaurant, the menu choices are good from soupd, salads, pasta, sandwiches and many entree choices - seasonal specials like their lobster tails are a real nice treat! And save room for a desert - its worth squeezing it in.
