A gem hidden from view. An original school house. Last graduation was 1955. Besides a very awesome atmosphere, the food was fantastic and priced fairly. We had a chicken parmigiano topped with a terrific creamy spinach sauce layered on top of a portobello mushroom. Wow. Ask for Catherine with her sparkling eyes and beaming smile she provided exemplary service. Visit... More

Tam's continues to be our favorite restaurant. Make sure if you go with children that you ask for their verbal kid menu. For kids they have things like mac n cheese or chicken fingers. The atmosphere is relaxing, the staff is very friendly, and the food is BEYOND delicious! My favorite is the chicken parmesan or chicken marsala. My husband's... More

Went here on a date because this place had been highly recommended. Service was good but food was mediocre. The atmosphere is good so if you aren't expecting delicious but just average food, go here.

He apologized and within minutes... More

I was on business and this restaurant was recommended to us. The food was the best and if I am ever back there I will be sure to go. The service was A+++. When we were leaving it was a major downpour and another waitress offered us an umbrella to go and get our vehicle and then went as far... More

This was our 3rd visit and we were equally impressed each time there. The menu is small and done meticulously. All items we've tried were excellent. Portions are very large and management is hands on and very personable. Penelope was our server on 2 occasions. She is so polished, knowledgeable, friendly and just a great server all around. Definitely one... More
