As a frequent, long-term patron of Tommy's, I can honestly say that it's one of my favorite restaurants in Cleveland. There truly is something for everyone on the menu. Personal favorites - always recommended to friends - include the French Onion Soup, Fries, & Shakes.
This place is not cheap. It's not uncommon to walk out after a Saturday lunch for 2 with a 20 - 30 buck bill. Suffice to say, I think it's well worth it.
My biggest gripe about Tommy's is the customer service...or lack thereof. From the moment you walk in, you're usually crushed by a wall of waiting customers frustrated with the haphazard registration and seating process. Regulars will usually help newbies find the dreaded list. The wait and service staff tend to operate in the zombie realm. The bottom line remains, I come here for the food....not the wait staff. Once seated, service is usually pretty fast and accurate.
Tommy's is in a class of it's own. The menu is diverse and unique. If you've not tried it, make a point of going. Young, old, hip, punk, funky or whacked...the people in the dining room make the experience truly Tommy's and uniquely Coventry.
