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.

My wife and I had lunch there. The pasta dishes were delicious and very hot (temperature wise). The pricing was fair and the portions were too large for us to eat at one sitting. We enjoyed the leftovers as well.

Jamabalaya - horrible (speaking from living in New Orleans) - way too much pepper (not spice I mean a choking amount of pepper) and a bad recipe overall. Crab bisque - outstanding. The best dish they had. Shrimp and crab dip - mediocre. Something you'd find at chilli's or Applebees. It tasted like nacho cheese instead of creamy. Bread and... More

Too much politics and too little attention to detail. Service slow, food below average and not served attractively.

The menu had quite a variety on it. I had the Backstage Salad and was EXTREMELY pleased with it. I felt a little underdressed, but wasn't made to feel uncomfortable. I thought the service was a touch slow, but wouldn't let that stop me from going back. The dessert was fantastic as well.

Food was excellent for small upscale dining in Cumming. Perfect start to an evening before enjoying the theatre offerings upstairs. Cozy atmosphere, excellent food. What more could you want?

We have been to Tam's twice and were very happy both times. One time we went in conjunction with seeing a show at the Cumming Theatre as they are in the same building. The second visit was just Tam's. Both times we had cocktails and very good food. Service and food were both very good and we will be going... More

We have used Tam's Backstage for a baby party and have eaten there many times socially. The food is outstanding and the service is refreshingly good.

I have eaten here a number of times, and the food is always good. If there are a lot of people there, it can be noisy.
