We get really tired of the chain restaurants for breakfast. We recently needed to make a patient visit to one of the hospitals near downtown Columbus and wanted someplace different for breakfast. I thought I had read about a diner or two "near" downtown and looked up restaurants that serve breakfast on my favorite "go-to," for travel advice, Trip Advisor.... More

Food was cooked exactly as ordered. Prices were very reasonable. Place was filled with OSU fans. Seems to be a game day gathering place. We will return.

Every time we come to Columbus, we eat at Tommy's at least 3-4 times. They have great breakfast and lunch specials. I especially recommend their Friday special of Pasticio, a Greek lasagna. It is amazing. The staff is super friendly, and Tommy the owner or his son Michael are always their to great you with a smile and treat you... More

The décor was retro and the burgers and sandwiches were good. We went shortly before closing time (mid-afternoon) and were not at all rushed. But the area didn't look good, and what looked like a hooker to us was waiting for her take-out order while her flock of kids waiting in the car, running out front. We were going to... More

This diner is always busy, so I prepared to wait, especially because I preferred a booth. The owner is busy greeting EVERYONE that comes thru the door, making sure everyone is 'okay' (he actually asks this), while waiting in line for their favorite meal. There is a small bar in the center of this small diner, with counter seating for... More

A step into the past with the food to match. Tommy's is a busy fun and friendly place to take friends and family. Burgers and fries good specials and quick service. Breakfast lunch or dinner alwsy worth the trip

Whenever I'm in downtown Columbus I always try to stop by for breakfast or lunch. Classic diner with comfort food, daily specials, and Greek dishes. There are no strangers here. Your just as likely to be seated next to a state or city official as the many regulars who frequent Tommy's. Always try to save room for a baklava sundae!... More

Every time my husband & I are in Columbus we try to fit in breakfast at Tommy's. The food is always excellent with good portions for a fair price & the staff is friendly. We called ahead on one visit with a party of 8 & they were very accommodating, getting us seated as quickly as possible. I highly recommend... More
