Unique restaurant in the basement of the old Cumming High School. Great ambiance and the food is good. good for lunch or dinner. Parking is a little limited and you may have to use adjacent parking lot. Neat place to take out of town visitors. Avoid the chain restaurants!

Met 2 different friends on 2 different days for lunch last week. Service has always been good. No pressure to finish up our lunch and get out. Food is above average. Had the Tuscan chicken sandwich with grilled veggies one day. Sandwich was tasty but ended up eating it with a fork and knife (a little messy). I had the... More

For the last 2 years our Shrine Club has held its Christmas Party there. The food options are great (get the steak). The service is spot on and the atmosphere is super.

This is a semi-formal restaurant with a menu of high level dishes which are all delicious. It offers exquisite desserts. Service is excellent and the theater upstairs has entertainment geared to the community.

I wasn't really thrilled about going here but I will definitely go back. I got the salmon for the first time and holy cow it was good. If I wasn't in public I swear I would have licked the plate. It's not cheap at all and it's a little more dressy than I normally like. Lots of lawyers and business... More

Tam's is an intimate restaurant with a touch of quiet sophistication, cozy booths, and a theatre motif. It is located inside an historic, renovated schoolhouse with vintage charm and old wooden floors. There is a full bar and the menu features some classic dishes and an adequate variety of entrees. (The fried shrimp is delicious!) The actual bar area has... More
