Great menu, fresh food in a real nice atmosphere!

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.

I have eaten here for lunch, dinner and just had drinks. Every time it has been great! The pasta dishes, the calamari, the cosmopolitans....I am making myself hungry. I neat place for a date or to take an out of town guest or to have a night out with the girls! Try it, you won't be disappointed.

We have had dinner here several times. The food is good and the price is very reasonable. I think it is ridiculous that you insist that I say morre.

The service is always impeccable, the food is always good, the ambiance is one of the best in Cumming, they just occasionally run out of things and that would be my only complaint well that and the fact that they are not open Christmas Eve because I would love to spend my anniversary dinner there.

I've been to this restaurant before and was not very impressed. HOWEVER today was perfection! The waiter was professional, friendly , but not obtrusive. When I entered I told him I was here to help celebrate a friend's birthday. We ordered both the rainbow trout(for her) and the tilapia for me. Both were perfectly seasoned and cooked perfectly.

We came to see the theatrical play of "A Christmas Carol" in the old school house upstairs so we decided to eat at the restaurant in the basement. They had everything booked because of Christmas but they found us a seat. The food was wonderful and the desert was great. We will definitely eat there the next time we come... More

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.

Our party had the trout, the salmon and the chicken parm. All were thrilled. Prices are reasonable. Service is great and the atmosphere is nice.
