I always forget how much I enjoy Tam's. I usually have tickets for the Cumming Playhouse upstairs, enjoy a great dinner with friends downstairs and it is a fun combination. I recently had family in town and I thought of Tam's because you can't go wrong with the service, the food or the atmosphere.

Food is good, gumbo is great, just right spice. Prices are a little high and sometimes it can be very noisy. Can't carry on a conversation without yelling. They need sound deading panels to absorb sound.

Tam's has never disappointed me. They have a very diverse menu and everything is very tasty. Every server we've had, every time we've gone has been excellent. I can't complain. Give it a try, I think you'll feel the same way too.

The service and food is at the top of the scale. The staff is very friendly. They watch their tables to make sure that your glass or coffee cup is always full.

Tam's has the appearance of an upscale restaurant in what appears to be a former school. It has been very well done. The entree was exceptional--shrimp and crab stuffed flounder. The mixed vegetables were very well prepared--not over cooked with a nice assortment. The only item I would recommend improvement on is the butter--way too sweet! As wonderful as the... More

It was my first time to eat at this restaurant. It is one of a kind and nearly the only one in Cumming town. The menu is quite extensive for what and where it is, and the prices are nominal. This restaurant is in an historic school house which also houses our city of Cumming theater. It is in a... More

Friends in Cumming recently brought me to Tam's Backstage in downtown Cumming, GA. The restaurant is housed in an old schoolhouse, which also serves as a theater and museum. Great, well-prepared food in an interesting environment.
