Tommy's is a classic hofbrau-style restaurant once very popular in Northern California. The food's in front of you when you walk in the door and you order from roast beef, turkey, chicken, ham and others plus side dishes as you walk down a very short line. Some of the daily specials like lamb shanks are superb. Other menu items like... More

Full bar with a hot lunch style counter taking individual orders for corned beef/pastrami/brisket etc with comfort food sides. Fantastic loose atmosphere.

I just don't get it. I read all of the glowing reviews that preceed mine. Great food, San Francisco institution, blah blah blah. Sorry, the food just isn't that good. The corned beef was dry, and super salty. The ham was barely warm, as were the mashed potatoes. And the place just does not feel clean. Once was enough. Actually,... More

Once again the TA recommendations did not disappoint. Tommy's Joynt is a charming place, with the charm of a living place that runs seemingly for ages and keeps its customer base by honest and simple dishes, focused on meat and potatoes. And beer. It is a busy place with no card, all the dishes are listed on black and white... More

Delicious food at great value. If you want fine dining go elsewhere; if you want good value comfort food and don't mind getting it yourself then you have to try this place. Great range of beers as well.

It had been awhile since having been to Tommy's Joynt for lunch and my wife never. So off we went for my wife to sample Tommy's menu... after reading all the choices, she settled on the fresh baked turkey, mashed potatoes with gravy, coleslaw with dinner roll. I passed on my favorite, the Buffalo Stew, and opted for the sliced... More

I have not been to San Francisco in over 10 years yet I went out of my way to go back to my old stumping ground. City changed but this institution still stands with new construction all around it, that says something. Food is awesome with large portions, tender cuts of meat whether platters or sandwiches. I favor my corned... More
