First of all thumbs up for hialys Brazil the nicest bartender in town. He fixes a mean caipirinha and he is always in a smiling mood. Excellent bar scene here. Let's move to the dining area that could use some pizzaz and let me get to the point.....I always complain about fat overly flavored food but when you go Liberace... More

That is such great news and thank you so much for taking the time to write this post! Our staff works so hard and it is always difficult to please everyone.

I was so embarrassed to have taken my friends here. I've heard good things about Tommy's Restaurant so to my surprise I was very disappointed. I enjoy two things when I dine anywhere, that is, quality food and service. Tommy's Restaurant failed to provide my party with anything worth giving a second chance. Long wait for food, waitress was rude,... More

I am new to Visalia within the last year and love an opportunity to eat out at your many great restaurants. I consider Tommy's to be fantastic. I had an opportunity to have a business lunch and the atmosphere was perfect. There were 10 of us and the service was great.

The selection was not pleasing to me. Much more breakfast than lunch and over-priced. Would like to try a dinner here cause I've heard good things, but my experience wasn't that great.

this will be a short review. every time we've eaten here the food has been amazing. Steaks are good, the salads and sides are great, and when I ordered the seafood past it had a full sized lobster tail on top. The meals are pricey, but worth the cost, If you get the chance, stop in and have dinner. full... More

We've been to Tommy's a few times and have never been disappointed. The filet is very good, as is the meatloaf and kobe burger. I also had the wedge salad recently and that was tasty as well. If you like bread pudding, you have to order it- save room because it's delicious and you'll want to eat it all. I've... More

We went to dinner tonight. There was 2 couples. It was not crowded. The waitress was attentive. I had the burger. I ordered well done. It was WELL DONE. My friend ordered medium-well, it was really well. My well done was over cooked. A moment more it would have been over cook to the point of unable to eat. They... More

The food is always good at Tommy's. It's a little cramped on space but the service and food is so good you may forget how close the table next to you is. Tommy's is also good for a business lunch meeting due to it is often less busy at lunch time. I don't like bread pudding but I LOVE the... More

Anytime I want a delicious meal, in a fancy setting, we always head straight to Tommy's. There are other places in town to go, but Tommy's has a great selection, whether you want a Kobe burger, moist pork chops or a bacon wrapped filet (which is my favorite). They have a great wine selection and the service is always outstanding.... More
