“Our diner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2012

We love to eat here. It is our favorite breakfast place. We sometimes go for lunch and even dinner. It is not your typical diner. The place is modern and new; the food is delicious. I've tried the salads, the sandwiches, almost all of the breakfast menu and have not been disappointed yet.

“Overpriced food and not amenable to substitutions at all”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2012

the menu is pretty limited for a diner and there is no substitutions which poses a problems for people with food allergies and restrictions. food is also overpriced as this is a diner not a fancy restaurant. The decor is pretty and service is good.

“Avocado Benny Yum-O”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2012

I have to admit it has been many moons ago since I have been to this diner but what a pleasant surprise. They had very creative specials it was hard to make a decision. The had Eggs Benedict with a twist called the Benny including Avocado, Turkey and mushrooms it was delicious. I will definitely return when I am in the area.

“A pleasant surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2012

I have not been at the Tom Sawyer Diner is at least fifteen years, until today. The building had burnt up in a fire and this is a new building. Very pleasantly decorated. The waitress was very friendly and helpful. I had a tuna salad platter and it was delicious. The tuna was fresh and of good quality. The prices were fair. Nearly every seat was taken, so that is an indication they have a good reputation. I would definitely go back again!
