We enjoy eating at Tam's before going up the stairs to the Cumming Playhouse. Tam's has a reasonably sized menu with several items that are quite good. The crab bisque was recommended to us and it did not disappoint. The steaks and fried shrimp were very good. I recommend ordering a dessert to share.

We enjoy eating at Tam's before all the plays at Cumming Playhouse. They are side by side. You walk up the stairs inside Tam's to get to the Playhouse. Tam's has a full variety of meals to chose from. Can't go bad with the steaks. Great deserts also. 4 or more in your party, make a reservation.

Our December lunch meeting at Tam's was wonderful! The staff was attentive but unobtrusive. As always, the food was delicious. It amazes me how Brian and his staff are able to serve tasty, beautifully prepared food, which is heated to the appropriate temperature to a large group.

I enjoyed the food it was great however the service was a little slow. We went as a large group so I understand it taking a bit longer.

We love tams. Go for special occasions and not. Pasta dishes are fabulous. Food is always as expected but the service is not the best. Service is sometimes better than others but not consistently good😢 However have never been disappointed with the food😀

Came here for business lunch on a Monday and had such a good meal, I came back on Sat with my family. TAM has a great relaxed setting, not a white tablecloth restaurant but the food was worthy of that designation. The crab bisque is a restaurant recommendation and didn't disappoint. I had the Tilapia Piccata and Chicken Parmigiana. Both... More

We hosted our wedding rehearsal dinner at Tam's Backstage. There are two rooms upstairs that can be rented out for events. One is decorated with big paintings from Phantom of the Opera and the other is some kind of starry night. Tam's will let you choose a small menu sample for your guests and sets up and serves. The food... More

I just moved to Cumming a few months ago. By far the best restaurant I have been to to in the area. Great Atmosphere. The place itself is a historic school converted into a restaurant and a theater. Brick walls with many booths and tables along with a patio for the warmer months. 4 of us went. I had Brian's... More
