We went to Tom Sawyer's today and got breakfast omelets. I got the Italian and my boyfriend got the New Yorker. They were delicious and they gave us heaping servings so we didn't leave hungry at all. Our server was nice. Good diner :)

We eat here when in the area have noticed the service slowing of late. While crowds are nothing new there appears to be a change of staff. If you are not in a hurry please stop by. I usually have a wrap or Ruben sandwich. The turkey dinner is also very tasty. A nice stop after shopping at Paramus Park... More

It's a special feeling to know that you can visit and re-visit a diner and continue to get the same quality food today that you did 25 years ago. That's how it is at the Tom Sawyer in Paramus,NJ. Newly remodeled after a fire a few years back, Steve, Vicky and staff have taken this wonderful food haven to the... More

Just another non-descript diner serving up average food at high prices. Better eats can be found elsewhere at a better price.

I went here with a friend for dinner. She has been there many times and recommended it for our casual night out. Like most local diners, the menu is large and varied. The food is made fresh and they seem to use good ingredients. Service was lacking a bit. It took forever to get a water refill. Nobody ever came... More

Ordered Buffalo Wings. Was served BBQ wings. The kitchen stuff and waiter then tried to serve me the BBQ wings with Buffalo sauce all over them after a trip back to the kitchen. Wife had a wrap, she got a little from it. So many others places to eat in the area. Use your smartphone and find them.
