Interesting diner with great hamburgers.

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... read 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.

You can get typical old style diner food here and it's fine and, as is typical of this kind of fare, filling. They also offer healthier options like wraps. It was a decent meal in the perfect location when visiting the flight of locks. It overlooks the locks though not from any of the tables. You have to go back... More

The food at each visit has been just barely warm and usually burned. The cook doesn't season well. :0( The service is always spectacular and they have a good milkshake. It might be a Lockport staple, but they need a new cook.
