Good home cooking!

Swift, efficient and delicious! It's a small place so arrive early. They sit you quickly and will have your food quicker than you know. I think there is too many tables in the place but I understand they want to get as many people in as possible. Cash only though!

Food is home cooked and delivered fresh and hot. Great variety of food - breakfast or lunch. Great breakfast food and good fish offerings. Parking is difficult and the seating is very tight. Tommy's only takes cash and is open for breakfast and lunch only 7 days a week.

This restaurant is quaint and it has good affordable food. There is always a wait, but the line moves very quickly. The location is great and the staffers are nice.

The prices are excellent. We have had a complete breakfast and coffee for less than $6. Pancakes are fluffy and tasty. I had a reabun sandwich on another occasion and it was sooo tasty. My mom had the fish and chips and it was crispy and fresh. Downside it can get busy and you will wait for a table, dont... More

The foods good, the line to sit and eat is another story at times but amazingly enough they get you seated fairly quick, I like it.

What you used to find before the interstates, where you would see the truckers eating at and wonder why? Affordable, stick to the ribs, mom food, a real local place. A joy to eat because of the lack of pretension, the lack of that corporate plastic feel, corporate drone drilled demeanor employees. Just has character, laid back atmosphere. If you... More

Tommy's Restauarant has been an iconic Hampton breakfast and lunch place for as long as I can remember. My wife and I have eaten there for 30+ years. Breakfast is served there from 6 am until 3 pm. Lunch is served beginning around noon. Tommy's is a hustlin' bustlin' place where you can meet diners from all walks of Hampton... More

Went to Tommy's for the very first time and it was delicious, but not filling. The service was outstanding, the prices were great. I would've rated it with four stars BUT in this day and hour ONLY cash! The portions could have been a bit bigger (like Shorty's), I had gotten the salty ham omelet, but there was so much... More
