No matter if you are hear for breakfast or lunch you are going to walk away with a full belly. Tommy's is the one place that everyone in the group will always agree on. And no matter how long you have been away, Tommy or his son will remember you and your family. Very family oriented restaurant and I always... More

Let face it sometimes your favorite breakfast (German Village Coffee Shop) place is just not in the direction you are running your errands. Especially if you are going through Downtown Columbus to the western side of town. There this little place that was once called Aters in the Bottoms (those of us who aren't high brows still call it that)... More

Went for lunch and had the Greek omelet and my fiancé tried the macaroni and cheese and potato soup. Loved the hash browns on the side and copious amounts feta in the omelet. Friendly and super fast service. Will definitely return. Excellent menu selections.

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.

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
