“Good food & service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2013 via mobile

Toomies was more like a cafe than a restaurant, at first glance reminded me of a fish & chippery with lots of base ball memorabilia. Don't let that put you off though. The food, wind & service was really good. The elk was delicious! Our waiter looked like a B-ball player & he was really great to us! Good price. Would go back.

“Yummy food, ambiance needs work”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2013

We found this restaurant after reviewing Tripadvisor reviews (#1 at the time). The original area is a deli with a few tables inside and out. They just added a large room 2 doors down to make it a legit restaurant. Just opened the annex in November 2013. Food was good, decent pricing, but the place needs to hire an interior decorator. They look like they want to make it a sports (baseball) theme. Which is fine for the bar area, but the food is so good, it warrants a nicer decor, guys!
We had lobster taquitos, salmon caesar salad, fish and chips, and baby back ribs. Everyone enjoyed their food. Nice portion size, too.

“Worth a try”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2013 via mobile

Picked this place on Trip Advisors recommendation. One thing to consider is this place only has seven tables indoors. I can see this being an issue during peak times. We came in the off season so this was not an issue for us. The food was better than average. Our favorite believe it or not was the Caesar salad. Awesome homemade dressing! Service was good but not stellar. Dress is very casual.

“great service. average food..”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2013

Came here with high expectations. Detoured all the way there just to try the food.

We had the highly recommended BBQ short ribs n a Oyster PO Boy.

Food came quick n fresh. The short rib was tender but dry and short on flavour. We had to smothered the ribs with the bbq sauce it came in to enjoy the ribs. On its own, with little sauce, it was dry and bland.

The oyster po boy sandwich was above average. 6 fat oysters in a long sandwich served with lots of fries. The oyster was tasty, but as a whole, it was average. The bread was too big. When you bite through the bread and oyster in one bite you don't taste much of the oyster. So I picked out the oysters and eat them separately with pieces of bread. When I want an oyster po boy, I want to taste mouthful of oysters. The best oyster po boy I had was in Louisiana where the sandwich was filled with lots and lots of small oysters in a soft warm roll, drizzled with generous seafood cocktail dressing. Each bite burst with oyster flavour. At Toomeys, there wasn't enough albeit big oysters and even bigger piece of bread.

Service was great. Only wished food was as good....

“What a surprise!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2013

We were pleasantly surprised to find such amazing food at fairly reasonable prices in Mammoth Lakes. Every selection was prepared to near perfection. Small and crowded, but we took this as a good sign in the off season. They say they are expanding this year, I sure hope they hold on to the quality. A real gem.
