T-Bone Tom's – Lived in Seabrook, Texas last summer. Went to Tom's many times. We were never disappointed!
Food and Service – We recently went to T Bone Toms due to viewing it on Diner's, Drive in's and Dives. We ordered the Appetizer platter and I can honestly say it should be only for 6 to 8 people, but was good. Our waiter was excellent and was very friendly and on top of the service. We ordered the Toms Special Steak that I guess is supposed to be marinated over night. It was not what I expected especially for the price. It lacked flavor to me, but was cooked to order. I do not recommend the steak for sure if you feel that you can cook one at home. Thanks
poor quality stale food – The chciken wings served on Monday April 20th were the worst I have ever eaten and obviously beyond safe selling date. I pointed this out to the manager after eating just one wing. The guy sitting mext to me suggested that they smelled sour and suggested I not eat them, which I did not. I think they were serving wings from the previous day that had been warmed up, covered in hot sauce to mask the smell and served to me.
I felt sick that night and the following day obviously from eating just one of the wings served. This will be my last visdit to this restaurant.
Loved the Seafood Platter – Daughter had the Chef's Salad.. Didn't comment on it.
Onion Rings were tasteless. I liked the breading. Just that the onion flavor is totally missing.~bland!]
Seafood Platter--Awesum!!! The oysters were Outstanding! The shrimp were huge...3-4 bite shrimp! Battered & fried to perfection.
Catfish was al-dente in the middle of the piece. I loved the fried shrimp and the oysters.
The service was outstanding..glass fillers, bussers, no service issues; no attitude from the servers.
This were totally worth the trip!!
Seems To Be Slipping – Quality seems to be slipping lately. Our waiter was obviusly new, and forgot our drink orders until we reminded him. Our steak plates were brought without the Texas toast that used to accompany the steak dinners. My request for extra blue cheese dressing for my salad was also forgotten; I had to go up to the counter and ask a different waiter for extra dressing. The quality of the meat also seems to have degraded some lately; too much fat and gristle on the rib eye steaks.
Great 'home' cooking! – This place had huge chicken fried steaks & the crispiest fried chicken around. Mashed potatoes come with that country cream gravy. It's a small, casual place that has opened up an entire backside and has bands play outside on the weekends. Their stuffed japs are the bomb! It is kid friendly. The service is friendly & good. This is where the locals hang instead of going to the more expensive & worse service of the Boardwalk.
Rude and incompetent staff and management. – I went there to celebrate my birthday with my fiance and future mother-in-law. This was my first and last time there. We were in the back, where it is open and was enjoying the band. We ordered our food and passed the time dancing. The place was busy, so after waiting for an hour and a half, I asked our waiter, a tall, young, caucasian guy, how much longer until our food would be ready. He left and then came back to inform me that he had forgotten to place our order, but he just put a rush on it and it would be ready in 45 minutes to an hour. That was totally unacceptable, because we were supposed to be at a (surprise) birthday party for me in an hour. I asked for the manager. A short hispanic guy showed up and I told him what had happened. His response was, verbatum, "What do you want me to do about it?" The ladies and I decided to leave. I stayed behind to pay our bar bill and to add insult to injury, that waiter, after handing me my change said, "Enjoy your meal at Burger King." I guess since they do so much business they can afford to be rude and incompetent. New people show up all the time, so why bother trying to get repeat business, right? I relate this experience to everyone that even thinks about going there and try to steer them someplace they will really enjoy. This all took place August 12th, 2006, in the evening, in case someone of higher authority there sees this and wants to know who to blame. Needless to say, this put a big damper on my birthday.
Best in Many Categories – I am constantly seeking out great barbecue. I have eaten at every place that I can find in a 20 miles radius and this is #1. While Tom's, as the locals call it, is known for its steak, it is a limiting label for this restaurant. Tom's has the best burger in the area, bar none. Their burger is so much better than what gets passed off as burger today, that you will find yourself saying "So that what a burger is supposed to be like". Chicken fried steak is great. If you eat one of these a year, this is where to get it. The meat is tender and the gravy actually has flavor. Service is great. Fried pickles are a good start. The quality of the food here reflects a comprehensive level of professionalism and dedication to quality. Biggest Secret: Fried Shrimp are fantastic. Get it here and skip Fertita's Frozen Food Follie.
Awesome! – We went to T-bone Tom's while visiting friends in the Kemah area. T-bone Tom's is their favorite place to grab a Pig sandwich or a steak. We took their advice and went. Wow.....great food at a great price. Cozy setting. You can't beat the Pig sandwich. Loaded with sliced Pork, and served on a hardroll with BBQ sauce on the side. All for $4.99. The service was fast and friendly. Pure Texas hospitality!
T-Bone Tom's VERY DISAPPOINTED!!! – Seeing all the roadside advertisement-thought we could do no wrong,seemed like an established restuarant. ordered ribs and brisket w/pinto beans and potato salad, my boyfriend ordered a regular chicken fried steak w/mashed potatos and fried okra. the waitress spoke BAD English, and whispered . the brisket and ribs were NOTHING but FAT!!!! the pinto were dry! celery in potato salad & dry. I understand some fat but all? My boyfriend's chicken fried steak was a regular, but Iit looked more like child's portion!His mashed potates looked like they had scrapped the bottom of the pot - okra was cold ! Don't waste time or money! One good thingwas the bread was fresh, and the bar-b-que sauce had a good flavor, but to pay $30 for bread and sauce! I did get the meat to go for my dog could get a meal , but he even turned up his nose.
