“Excellent food but long wait and pricey!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

The steak and popcorn shrimp is incredible. It is worth the wait if you have the time. It also costs quite a bit, but would be a great place to go on a date or for special occasions. I definitely believe it is one of the best places for a steak in the area. The service wasn't that great, however the food made up for the price, wait, and below average service.

“Good Food and a Fun Environment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

I hate ever with some co-workers for dinner. There was a lot happening for a Sunday night. We got there late due to travel and had a 20 minute wait for a table of 7. We ended up getting in first at the inside dinning. The outside dinning has live music and both are very busy.

I had the Pork sandwich and we had the Armadillo Balls as well. Everyone enjoyed their food. The service was very good and it was fun. This is not a place for a quiet, romantic meal. If you are looking for good food and an energetic environment, T-Bone Tom's is for you.

“Yeah... Yeah!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2014

A great place to hang out with great food. You can eat inside, or on the huge outside patio. The food is great. The service can be good or bad, depends on the waiter you get. Our last visit, we got a rock for a waiter. The food was still great. Great food... Great hang out... Love it!

“Diners, Drive Ins and Dives ~ Kemah, Texas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014

A great hidden gem in Kemah, Texas is T-Bone Tom's! Adjacent to the Kemah Boardwalk, stop in anytime for some fabulous Texas bbq, beef brisket, pulled pork and more. Famous for their Armadillo Eggs (jalapeno pepper stuffed with delicious pulled pork!), chicken fried steak, homemade sausage, great grilled steaks and more.
Another one of my favorites "Tom's Campfire" (appetizer) of tender steak pieces seasoned and served on a baby hibachi for cooking completion right at your table. It's fantastic!! Enjoy a delicious Shrimp Cocktail and a (local) Railean Rum beverage. Live music several nights a week with great fun atmosphere on the backyard palapa covered patio! On your next visit to the Galveston, Seabrook or Kemah area, come one over to SH #146 and #2094 and take in some great local fare... Visit YouTube to see several great reviews including the TV hit show Diners, Drive Ins and Dives!

“Simple and Good with Great Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2014

T-Bone Tom's is not fancy but it is good. A good selection of seafood and beef of good quality at a very good price. Location right at the Kemah Bridge. Parking tight. Inside and outdoor seating. Service intelligent and attentive. Food delivery hot and quick with lots of food offered. Ury served us and she was beyond wonderful. I recommend you eat at T-Bone Tom's and then go to the Kemah Boardwalk.
