Great visit to T-Bone Tom’s. Our waiter James was awesome. He took the time to point out popular menu items and explain the specials for the evening. Service was great, our entrees were , fantastic, and we had a great time. We’ll be back.

Armadillo eggs were excellent and highly recommended, I was disappointed with the porterhouse steak it contained a lot of gristle and fat. I think it’s worth a visit as there’s a good vibe.

So glad we came here! Our waiter was super attentive and amazing! The food was delicious and we loved the laid back atmosphere. They have lunch specials every day and a happy hour that includes drinks and appetizers. We also had a delicious chocolate pie...for dessert! The portions are definitely worth the price...we will be back!More

We have had lunch here a number of times and had no idea of the big music venue behind the resturant. It is quite large and gives good views of the performers as you drink a d dine. It was really a pleasant surprise for...our adult kids. They loved the place. As always, the food is good. The service was prompt and friendly.More

Everyone at this place was just happy! All ages, walks of life....and just happy. Live music, outdoor seating, full bar and great prices!! I did think the sausage and beef were a little dry, and you aren't fooling anybody with "home made" potato salad. Pair...that meat with some of the best BBQ sauce I have had and I call this a winner!More

This is quite an interesting place. The BBQ is really good. The home made sausage and the chicken are excellent. The sides are great. The portions are designed for giants--it is tough to eat all of it. Most of the people have doggy bags! The...ambiance inside is decent. The curb appeal is not great, but the parking is abundant and easy to use. The construction on the road us a pain, but ignore it. The service is excellent. This is going to be our "go to barbby place" for a fast, good and reasonably priced meal. You can't miss here! They sell a gallon of gumbo for $35, if you call ahead. Such a DEAL!More

Have been to this restaurant many times and it never disappoints. We had boneless chicken wings and they were very tasty. Chicken fried steak was delicious. Boudin balls were good. I’m sure I will return when in the area.

Went to Houston to pick up daughter at Airport and wanted something good to eat for Supper....... T-Bone Toms didn't dissappoint. We both had chicken fried steak and then since it was a Wednesday night at 6 pm came the free concert. So we chose...to eat in Tom's Backyard with tge fans and the music you would not of thought it was July and your outside. The food was great, Band Great, and our server was amazing........ If you get a chance to visit them and enjoy the foodMore

Best Burger I have ever eaten! Seriously, if I lived closer it would be the only place I would ever go for a burger. I didn't have the steaks but can only imagine how good they are. Maybe next time! Great service. Great atmosphere.

Although we LOVE TBone Tom’s I was VERY disappointed this evening!!! I had an SOS Burger which was amazing. My husband had a brisket sandwich which was also amazing. Our server was Kiara was delightful. We are excited to see the band who was coming...on soon. Now for the the bad part....my dinner was RUINED by the waft of cigarette smoke!!! We have been going there for quite a while. I guess we were never close to a smoker. The owner/manager should really consider making either the upper or the lower part of the patio non-smoking for us...either would work. I’m sure I am not the only person who feels this way. BTW we asked Kiara about the smoking (after we smelled the next table over) she told us the whole outside is smoking. She knew we were leaving for that reason and apologized a few times. Sweet girl. She’s a keeper!More

Usually it is best place in this area for steaks, bbq, & down home service & atmosphere! Priced right with great daily specials! Seafood is good, maybe not the best but real close! Great local entertainment 6 days a week! We have family gatherings there...a lot & they are always great! Once in a while they screw up an order but usually fix it quick! Chicken fried steak & bbq are the favorites in our gatherings! Safe for kids on dance floor in the back yard & usually friendly folks! Would highly recommend for family gatherings but there can be a short wait on week ends! It's usually worth it!More

I don't know, suggest you call the restaurant and ask them. Many places with outside seating do allow pets, but they also allow smokers so I never eat outside.
