By far this is the most delici...

By far this is the most delicious place I’ve ever been for breakfast foods. I love how flexible they are with whole grains, natural peanut butters and vegan menu options, even though those things are not cardinal rules in my dining experience. It makes eating out with friends easier as well as enjoyable. Their milkshakes are delicious, and I really love that they are attached to a local book store so you can pop over and find peruse the stacks while you wait for a table or after you’ve eaten.


A good place to try Vegitarian food.

I really enjoy going to Tommys!!!

Great food good service...the only thing i'd worry about is getting their a few minutes earlier then planned on the weekend the wait can be a bit lengthy.

Something for Everyone

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.

Tommy's: Not All It's Cracked Up To Be

Tommys is a mixture of the good and the bad. Their milkshakes are fantastic and there are quite a few items on their menu that are worth trying no matter how strange they may seem. The service, however, can be really spotty. I've found much better service if I dine in yet when I get food to go, I've often found myself waiting for upwards of half an hour. The last time I was there, I left without my food out of pure frustration in trying to flag a girl down so I can eat. Back to the food...lots of it is delicious but often quite greasy and somewhat overpriced. This is not the place it used to be.

Location saves this place

I have been here quite a few times. When I didn't live in Cleveland, I would go to Coventry and Tommy's to eat and thought it was pretty good. Once you get used to it though, and have been to Coventry enough, and have eaten at other places, it just isn't as good anymore. I will agree that the fries and milkshakes are very good. As far as vegetarian food goes, nearly everything they have is average at best. And, please go to Aladdin's if you're looking for hummus, baba, falafel, etc. Their mediterranean food is plain aweful.

Great Variety

Overall, a huge menu with lots of great choices. The milkshakes and fries are probably the best in Cleveland. Try adding the homemade peanut butter in one. There's a huge variety of meat pies and vegetarians pies. The falafel in some is flavored well, but sometimes a little overdone. The hummus is good, but I personally like one with more garlic and other spices in it. Give Tommy's a try, there's bound to be something on there that you'll like, and if the menu items don't fit what you want, they're the best with special orders. The only problem can be a significant wait, but the milkshakes alone are worth it.

Best Milkshakes

I second that review. The milkshakes are out of this world. I am a big fan of the salads and sandwiches too. They have one with peanut butter and cheese and veggies, I know if sounds weird, but seriously it's delicious. The only downside is that there is a long wait at meal times because it's so popular. If you plan ahead, you can just sign-in and then shop at Big Fun or Macs Backs Books until your table is ready.

I lived in the Cleveland area for a good amount of time, and Tommy's remains strong as one of my favorite restaurants in the whole city!!! Their vege burgers are to die for and the salads are always fresh and perfect...and of course well-named. The Haley is perfect!!! The milkshakes are hands down the best in ANY city.

Great food. Unpredictable service.

I have been to Tommy's a few times. I like the food. They have a diverse menu, which includes a wide variety of salads that always seem to be very fresh. The service, however, is unpredictable. I had a good waitress once. Every other time, the service was slow and rude.

i WANT to like this place.

...and i do stop in for a milkshake in the summers, but yuck. it's a shame, since it's a neighborhood staple, that servers are allowed to mumble or be rude, and that the food (which tastes okay going down) should make me sick. literally, every time i eat there, i don't feel well (i think it's the grill grease). it's sad, because it's a pleasant place inside, convenient and clean. lots of people love it but...buyer beware.
