All I can say is yummy. Great service. Family atmosphere. Tasty breakfast, very crowded but worth the wait. Not expensive at all.

Couldn't possibly pass up the number 2 rated restaurant in Hampton! So glad I use this website, because it was a really excellent breakfast. The place was busy, but our food arrived fast. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend.

It is a busy little restaurant which serves breakfast and lunch. The food is always good, and the prices are very reasonable. Staff is friendly. Only negative is there is almost always a line...which is an excellent sign that its worth the wait!

Tommy's has a classic diner feel just with tables and chairs rather than a bar and stools. It's has a full breakfast menu that you can order from whenever they're open (they close at 3 so don't plan to go there for dinner), and a lunch menu. I've only ever had the breakfast foods. The combination breakfast that comes with... More

I loved my experience at Tommy's. If you visit, just know that there is ALWAYS a line out the door, but it moves quickly. They only accept cash, but have an ATM onsite. I brought my 2-year old twins here, along with some friends who were visiting. They were able to seat our party quickly and I had coffee almost... More

I visited today and had the pork chops with mashed potatoes and beets. Everything was good and the price was reasonable. I had enough for another meal. I will visit again and try breakfast. The wait is worth it.

Always good food with awesome prices. We always leave full! It is a breakfast favorite for most that I know. So much better than waffle house!

Waitress recommended the seafood breakfast with catfish, and it was delicious. I could only eat about a quarter of it, though. Friendly and welcoming to a solo diner. More interesting than a chain restaurant. Go! And bring cash, because they don't take credit cards.

Standard fair greasy spoon from first impressions anyway. We both had the combo breakfast (Eggs, bacon/sausage, 2 pancakes, hash-browns and grits. The food was good, not the best ever but I'd like to try it again and try their omelettes. The hash-browns were a touch too soggy but not bad. I enjoyed their grits the best. The amount of business... More

This restaurant reminds me of an old time diner. Meals are tasty and plentiful and served quickly. In this day of pricey meals, Tommy's is very affordable. Staff is friendly and seems to personally know a lot of the regulars. It's a great go-to restaurant.
