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.

Small homey place in town. Friendly staff makes your meal even more enjoyable. Had breakfast ans lunch there. Nothing fancy just good ole American food. We went near closing but they still took the time to get us seated and serve us a nice meal. Have teen sons, they loved it.

This was an interesting place recommended by a local. Our server was pleasant but we were told we had to sit in the front as the back was closed so we couldn't look out at the view of the canal. Even though it was lunch time, we ordered breakfast food and it was tasty. We'd go back.

Tom's Diner is a decent place to visit for breakfast or lunch. It serves standard American breakfast and lunch fare at reasonable prices. Going there is like taking some steps back into time as it is typical of a bygone era. Nothing to write home about, but certainly OK.

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
