Delightful Experience

My husband and I had a wonderful lunch experience here while in town. I had a nice lunch-size portion of chicken marsala. My husband ordered a cobb salad. Mine was delicious! The waitress was attentive. The atmosphere pleasant. We will definitely be returning.

If your GPS is working, you may find it. The location is not optimal. Ordinary is the highest compliment, and you better not be in a hurry.

Excellent food served in an old school building with polished servers where community leaders in town dine before stage performance above with good drinks, desserts and appetizers!

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 sandwich came on a large roll which,... More

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
