Food was great and service was terrible

The good: Both the side salad and prime rib sandwich were good, reasonably priced, and fresh. Classy, inviting atmosphere. The bad: The service was lackluster at best. My drink spent more time empty than full, and the waiters and waitresses seemed a bit more interested in conversing with each... read more

We stopped for lunch expecting a relaxing meal. There were only about five tables occupied and never expected what was to follow. Out waiter took us to a table, dropped our menus and disappeared. It was a long time before he returned with two glasses of water and said "are you ready?" We placed our order which included a bowl... More

Building looked amazing , food came out looking amazing. But it has got to be one of the worst we have ever eaten. Very poor flavor , and cold. Service was excellent building was nice and clean if the food would have tasted like it looked it would have been amazing.

We were the first customers for lunch hour. Service was fine but the food was poor. We only ordered 2 Burgers Med/Well. They came out RAW in the middle (were actually cold). The waitress offered to take them back to cook them longer but they were already smothered with K&M. It had taken 30 minutes to receive 2 uncooked burgers.... More

I want to give this two stars but the service was horrendous. I travel often and I have become very patient. The one thing that is unacceptable is a table getting seated after me and served before me. Two tables were served prior to us even though we had been there long before them. We were out with a friend... More

The sushi was very big (one roll could be a meal) and delicious! The staff was super friendly And nice. I enjoyed the flatiron steak but it was marbled so that it was hard to bite into in places, I used my fork instead but thought it tasted very good still!

If you’re looking for seafood, this restaurant does a good job. We didn’t order steaks so can’t vouch for them. But Tommy B’s promotes itself as a sushi specialist, and that’s a stretch. There are exactly 6 sushi items on the menu, and 5 of them use cooked or smoked fish. The local supermarket has more variety. That said, the... More
