The food was good. The wait was very long and this is a cash only establishment. I don't think the food was worth the wait. They are a very busy restaurant.

Tommy's serves great food at a great price and the staff provides Excellent Customer Service, so if you are in the Hampton Roads Area this is the place to eat, My Favorite is their breakfast.

Excellent food and staff but the wait time is ridiculous. We visit often and the place is small and the line is usually out the door. Once seated service is normally fast and the food makes up for the wait

Tommy serves delicious food with generous portions at a reasonable price. That's why I go there quite often.

No alcohol or BYOB. Just a great place for breakfast and/or lunch.
