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.

The food at Tam's has been consistently good for the past 4 years. One could always say don't fix what isn't broken but there has been no change in the menu for 4 years. The menu has become outdated and boring. They appear to have the skill to do more and add some zest, innovation and creativity.it would be interesting... More

Eight of us arrived at Tam's at 6pm to be sure dinner was completed before a show at 8pm. Few people were at tables when we arrived and the server took our drinks order and arrived some 10 minutes later and took our dinner order- no appetizers were ordered. The food arrived after 7pm and several diners who came after... More

The service is very good … the order/receive food time line is consistently good and the variety of the menu is very good. The owner's presence may be the catalyst to this consistency - he is certainly there and quick to say hello and ask to let him know if he can be of service. Good location in Cumming, good... More
