“Unbelievable”
Reviewed May 16, 2011

I was just eating in the restaurant when I saw and heard the owner talk to a female employee like a dog. He cursed and yelled at her telling to leave. I wanted to get up and say something, but I will tell you something...I will NEVER return his restaurant and I encourage everyone in Ocala to stay away. People shouldn't be treated like that period!

“Canned gravy for bisquits and gravy.”
Reviewed September 25, 2010

Picked up a full order of bisquits and gravy on my way to work one morning. What a waste .Could have gotten better from Burger King. $6 for a bisquit with gravy that came from a can. Not one server was friendly upon my entrance, and they stood around the counter. Had to tell the hostess/waitress my order 3 times. Try Jan and Al"s in the RV Park down the street. Their gravy is homemade, bisquits and gravy comes with homefries and under $4. Healthy portion, can only eat the half order.

“Our afternoon of waiting for food that never came, time and time again!”
Reviewed September 6, 2010

This afternoon we stopped in for some BBQ, ordered and after about 1/2 hour the waitress came to us to tell us the order had been lost, not once, but twice in that period. So we ordered again and after another 1/2 hour we left as we kept hearing it was coming, it's coming. Will not be going back...ever! Stupid us for being so naive and sitting there for an hour! When we were going out there was someone With "Tommy" on his shirt...looked like possibly the manager...he had gone by our table at least a 1/2 dozen times and did not notice us sitting there all that time waiting! Honestly, what a way to run a restaurant.

“‘Tommy’s in the Forest’2 thumbs up …”
Reviewed August 28, 2010

For anyone who was not aware’ Tommy’s’ Restaurant is now open in the Forest (Formally RODGER’s BBq)
We celebrated my husband’s birthday at Tommy’s in the Forest. ‘Quincy’ (who I believe does a pretty good sense of humor) met with me ahead of time and went over menu options and pricing. (Very reasonable BTW)
Tommy’s forte is BBQ …. Our menu consisted of Fried shrimp, pulled pork, fries, slaw, baked beans and garlic bread, Chicken nuggets/ fingers, fries and chocolate milk for the little ones. The potions were hearty, the pork was fabulous…..moist& fork tender with choice of 3 sauces…. The beans were Phenomenal.
Our party consisted of 7 Adults and 2 small children (1 of which was a toddler).
Even though they were at a disadvantage ( My husband’s birthday celebration occurred during the week of their opening, The staff was very accommodating , even giving a few extra moments of attention to the littlest ones, and never making us feel rushed . The staff even took a few minutes during this busy time to sing ‘Happy Birthday’ to my husband. Other patrons then stopped by to wish him a happy birthday as well.
Each and every adult member of our party left giving Tommy’s restaurant and his staff 2 thumbs up for a job well done. All agreed --they will return.
Thank you Quincy for your help,
Thank you Tommy for a super great meal.

“The true taste of BBQ is in the cut of the meat & nobody cuts it better then TOM.”
Reviewed August 12, 2010

The BBQ sauce and rib cuts make this the best in the South. I have eaten BBQ in every state in the south and this is the BEST. Memphis's famous Charlie Vargas Rendezvous can not come close to TOMS real backyard BBQ. Until you order a rack you will never know what I am talking about. If you have tried 3 Rivers in Orlando you know good cooking when you get it but, Toms' wins by a cut above. There is just no other way to say it until you have eaten at Toms you have not had the best no matter what THEY say. Take your family, the service is down to earth country. Don't take my word for it try it for yourself then tell me who makes it better. Bet you can't...........................Pete (elpasop@aol.com
