We were delighted to discover Tom's diner on trip advisor. My husband grew up in Lockport and our first apartment after we were married was on Pine Street 49 years ago. Good food, excellent service and we loved the murals on the wall. I'd give it 5 stars if it served the rich, dark roast coffee I like.

A nice little diner in the heart of downtown Lockport. They serve a very solid breakfast. Not anything stellar, but good. I really do not recommend this place for a dinner. Food is ok, but breakfast is clearly their specialty.

My go to place in Lockport! We are regulars there. The staff is like a family, and the food is fast and delicious! Typical diner food, really good coffee, and great service. A Lockport mainstay, and locally owned business. Julie, Colleen, and Kathleen are the best servers ever!

Came here for breakfast with a large group of people. We had to split up and sit all over the place but it ended up being okay. Apparently if you get there around 9:30 on Sunday's, church lets out and it gets pretty packed in here. Prices were reasonable and portion sizes were generous. I got an omelette with bacon,... More

Good diner food. Atmosphere was like being in a diner. Service was excellent; portions generous and very good tasting. Would go back if I was in the area again.

A typical American diner on the banks of the Erie Canal. Great atmosphere, clean and they serve great burgers that were fresh and not frozen formed patties that you get from McD's, etc. The only complaint was the sodas and iced tea seemed expensive for this type of place and we were never asked if we wanted refills. Otherwise, I... More

I have been for lunch and breakfast in the past month. Both were fantastic. The place is filled with visitors and locals. Overlooks the canal.

We can't leave Lockport without the Tom's Diner meal; good service; small town atmosphere and plentiful food. We have had breakfast and lunch meals; we have not been disappointed. Reasonable prices. NOT greasy! Greek salad is huge (even smaller size) and tasty. Love the home fries....as I said; it's a "must" when we are in area.
