I am a former restaurant owner and have been searching dozens of restaurants for the best breakfast in columbus. I found it, Tommy's Diner on W Broad St. Large eggs, real home fried potatoes and two large sausage paddies. Excellent coffee. The service was great. All at a competitive price. I cannot believe this place has been there for twenty... More

My wife and I visited Tommy's this morning while in Cbus. Everything was great; I had the Big Breakfast while my wife got the Western Omelette. Food was terrific; not processed like a chain would give you. Staff was great..spot on service and personable. Can't wait to visit again to try the lunch menu!!!

Walking in to Tommy's you are instantly taken back into a 1950s style Diner. Classic decor and set up. My wife had the pancakes and they were amazing. I had the eggs Benedict. 2 thumbs up. Our waitress at the bar was outstanding. Highly recommend this place for anyone wanting a classic diner feel and great food.

In town for business and find this great place. It is everything you would hope for in a genuine, old school diner. Great food, atmosphere, prices, personalities and local flavor. This is no tourist destination. The neighborhood is not the greatest, but I was treated very well and will be back.

Tommy's is a family-run diner on the near west side of Columbus (W. Broad St), in the Franklinton neighborhood. The food is quite good, excellent selection of breakfast and lunch items, with typical 50's/60's type decoration. Although the food is always delicious, the service can be somewhat disjointed, i.e., if you get a great server it's fantastic, if not, well... More

Looking for a great breakfast close to downtown Columbus look no more. Great food and a bustling atmosphere. Just a fun place to eat. We had the big breakfast which included eggs, potatoes, bacon and toast along with a waffle. Very good. My son had the special eggs benedict also great. I really liked the home fries with cheese and... More

My family and I ate at Tommy's last Friday morning, and had a great diner breakfast at a reasonable price. The location is good - about a mile and a half from the Arena district - so we could walk back to the hotel after eating a hearty breakfast. The restaurant is decorated with lots of vintage photos and the... More

Had the ham & cheese omelet and it was easily one of the best I've ever had. The service was prompt and friendly and I would definitely go back. The decor was and added bonus.

Rightly qualifying as a Columbus landmark (look at the pictures on the wall on your left as you enter the restaurant - Woody Hayes, past Columbus Mayors and a number of other local celebs) all date back over the past 50 plus years. The stainless steel walls, red vinyl booths, black and white tile floor and the assortment of pictures... More
