This is a diner in every sense of the word. You seat yourself, grab a menu and enjoy the delicious food. Our waitress knew we were trying to catch a tour and rushed our order. She was fantastic!! Country style food - large portions and very hearty. This is were you want to feed big teenage boys with bottomless stomachs.... More

From the moment my party entered we felt unwelcome, the manager told our server to seat us in the back (by the bathrooms), not one employee smiled or greeted us, the server was rude... they made sure we knew "our kind" wasn't welcome, just not in so many words... When another party entered the sever treated the assisstance-dog they had... More

Wherever I travel, I try to find a local diner for breakfast. Tom's fits the bill. The customers are mostly local residents. Service is quick and friendly. The meal portions are reasonable and the prices are normal for a local diner. Thursday mornings, the left side of the restaurant is fully occupied by a Toastmasters group, so you may want... More

This diner was super cute & everyone was friendly. We sat by the window overlooking the Lockport locks & it was so cool. We got to see a boat go through the locks & it was just a fun experience. I ordered a lunch entree while my mom & grandma ordered breakfast. Next time I will order breakfast. Their meals... More

Today was our first stop in to Tom's... we will surely be back soon! Our family, 2 adults, 2 children, 13 and 5, had breakfast here today. Our meals consisted of an omelet, waffle, strawberry pancakes, and child pancake. Everyone loved their food. My omelet was good, fresh and hot...but I raved about the home fries (w/onions)! My husband had... More

This is one of those iconic local eateries that you just have to experience to really make your visit complete. Cool murals on the walls, knick-knacks, and local characters. Service was incredibly slow even though we got there just after the breakfast rush. I had the bananas foster stuffed French toast which was amazing, plus a side of bacon and... More

Food was fresh and tasty. Had veggie wrap - mixed greens, tomato, cheese, onion, red peppers, cukes, etc on tomato wrap. Tortilla was soft. Fries were natural cut and delicious. Husband had open faced turkey and said it was good but a bit generic. Very short wait but there was only a handful of people in restaurant. Staff friendly. They... More
