The food and service is always good. I always stop here when I am in downtown Detroit. I had fish and chips, fish was fresh caught in the morning. Homemade seafood chili was spicy but cold and could of had more seafood in it.

Friendly service, fun atmosphere, and tasty seafood appetizer platter. Only downside was rundown and unsanitary restroom.

Went in for an early dinner while staying across the street at the Marriott. Cheerful and efficient service, nice casual atmosphere, good choice of wines by the glass, excellent Bluepoint oysters followed by a very generous "appetizer" service of 3 crab cakes.

I've been here on four occasions and have found the food, service and atmosphere above par. Great variety of craft beers and very good appetizers, especially the smoked salmon. Down to earth service and good value.

Ok, I've eaten lots of seafood...worldwide! I thoroughly enjoyed Tom's. My first time in Detroit and definitely recommend this place, small, not fussy or pretentious. Great food and decent prices. I highly recommend the mussels and broiled whitefish!

I used to really like this place. I don't know what is going on there. It doesn't seem clean and kind of has a smell inside. The last couple of times I have been there has been disappointing. I wish they would figure it out...More
