We had good, reasonably priced food here. They were understaffed due to a death in the owner's family, but still provided good service. We liked the mural on the wall of the way the town used to look.

I got the 2 eggs, 2 sausage links and 2 potato pancakes for $1 more. This was SO good and highly recommended. My coworker ordered the same thing but instead of potato pancakes got regular pancakes. He was itching to come back to this place after the first time he came here and was thrilled when he got to eat... More

During a visit to the nearby visitors center, Tom's was recommended as a good lunch spot. Although the building was very unimpressive, decided to give it a try. We're very pleased by the friendly, courteous staff. I tried the sandwich special, an open faced steak, and the wife had a Reubens. The steak was good but unimpressive. The Reubens however... More

Great food fast friendly service at great prices. Been here several times and always great. It was very busy 3 tables ahead of us we waited about 10 minutes. Sat down coffee and drinks right away and ordered food. Food came about 10-15 mins later.

Tom's Diner was recommended by one of the ladies at the Erie Canal Discovery Museum, and we're so glad we checked it out! After several days on the road eating fast food and hotel powdered eggs, it was so very nice to have a real meal in a cozy environment. We both had the open faced steak sandwich, which was... More

The food is great and reasonable and the art work on the walls make dining a wonderful experience. The waitresses are super.

Conveniently located on Main Street, Tom's offers up some of the best home-cooked food available in the area. The service is great and the prices are right! A true "diner" atmosphere adds to the charm of the decor where the interior walls contain portraits of some of your favorite characters from yesteryear. Definitely an interesting view while waiting for your... More

The prices are cheap and the food is pretty good. It's a cool little Old school diner atmosphere with some hand drawn artwork and a retro feel. We Always go there for breakfast.
