Excellent Diner

We haven't been for lunch or dinner yet, but have eaten breakfast twice. Both times the staff were superb and the food was excellent. Like the idea of a "greasy spoon" kind of place but don't want to eat on a greasy surface or eat greasy food? This is the place!

I was riding my bicycle to Cincinnati and found this place to get some breakfast. These diners are hard to find anymore. This one is first class. I noticed there were many regulars that the waitresses knew their order. My breakfast was hot and delicious.

Stopped in to Tommy's Diner for lunch with two business associates. The restaurant was very busy - waited about 10 minutes for a table. The diner was very clean and we were warmly and "Greekly" greeted by Tommy behind the register. Decor is 1950's period diner with plenty of off-street parking on the adjacent lot. Restaurant is diner food with... More

Pretty typical dinner with a very nice atmosphere. It was packed, but they got us seated quickly. The food was good. I ordered the meatloaf with mashed potatoes and a salad. I definitely feel the gravy was needed for the meatloaf as it was a bit dry. I would definitely go back again.

We went to Tommy's Diner for a late breakfast on a recent Sunday. We went around 11:00 the restaurant was very crowded with a wait. The tables were cleaned and turned over quickly so if there is a wait (and I understand there usually is) you should wait it out. The owner greeted everyone and was professional and friendly. The...

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.
