After reading all these comments I am totally surprised that Tom's won Gold!! We have been there several times and except for to much noise it was not bad. Breakfast was a disappointment, but we seldom go there for breakfast. Still not gold though.
Burgers - Perfect
Chicken and Waffles - Perfect
Chicken Wings - Awesome!
A great bite
great food at a great price
Loved it! Delicious, healthy, and affordable meals so close to my home! I will return soon!
I ate here for the first time a week ago... and by "ate here" I actually mean "ordered delivery from here and ate it at home one rainy night when I was too lazy to cook". I was surprised - I thought it was really good and the portions were generous. There were some really good flavours within the food and you could tell it was made by someone who cared. I'd definitely come back here again.... or rather, order from here again!
I really really like this spot. The sushi is on par with the rest of Halifax sushi places (neither amazing nor subpar) but there's something about it that makes it one of my top three sushi houses in Halifax to frequent. Maybe it's the special (cheaper) menu after 9pm, or maybe it's because it's across the street from the Oxford Theatre and it's nice to go see a movie and then pop across the street for some delicious sushi.
I find they have too many burger choices, and many of the names don't even give you any slight hint of what is on the burger (such as Sk8er Boy, Hamburger Mary, Beaver Bank, Dynamic Downtown Burger, Growler Five-0, Beverley Hills Lawsuit, Discovery, Hold the Phone, Hunka Hunka Burnin' Love, San Francisco Treat, Not Yo Burger, Denyse's Aphrodisiac, Newsmaker, Ho Hum No. 2, Ho Hum No. 5, Mikey Likes It, Halluvaburger, Shipbuilder's Dream, the Dingle, Tall Ships, Crappy Tire, Man-O-War, Dockyard, Not So Thin Lizzy, Sexy Burger, Huskie's Vacation, Old New Bridge, Etc, Etc, Etc...) I get it, everyone likes a burger with a catchy name, but I find it leads to a whole lot of reading when you are trying to figure out what to order. There are far too many of these gourmet burger places in Halifax, half or more will be gone within a year. It seems all it takes to make a "gourmet" burger is just put normal burger toppings on along with one weird topping and give it some crazy name, oh yeah, I almost forgot the most important part, charge extra for it.
3 stars for food only. I had eaten here for years (Since 2008) I used to rave about this place. Over the last 6 months they have gotten my orders wrong, forgot elements of my order, put me on hold of more than 5 minutes. Last night was the final straw, I was put on "hold" the waitress set down the phone and talked to another person about how drunk they the previous night were and their work schedule.
I also hate that they switched to take out containers from the paper to the non-biodegrading kind.
great spot. amazing food. definitely worth the wait.
I recently found this lovely little "hideaway". Wow, food is all fresh and homemade and totally amazing! Atmosphere is so inviting and we were served by one of the owners who is just a great guy and really goes out of his way to make the experience wonderful. Stop by - you won't regret it. I was back within a week for lunch again!
The food was excellent, service was excellent and I enjoyed the best glass of wine I've ever had the pleasure of drinking. We were there on a busy Saturday night and still felt that we were priority and were well taken care of. I will definitely return!
I went for lunch today with two more people and while we were eating one of sushi rolls, we found something, like a hair but no black, maybe such a thread, on its surface; and I told a female server about it and she said it's not a hair and just said sorry and took my friend's personal plate and brought a new plate. And then, we just started to eat it again and we found another something again from the same plate. We called the server again and we found another one; and asked to bring a manager or owner; and she went inside and then came back and said owner is not here; and she just offered a half price for our bills but still her attitude was so arrogant and she didn't seem sorry for us. At that time, we were still hungry but we didn't want to eat sushi anymore; so just ate something grilled. And we were still mad about her attitude and she seems trying not to come to our table.
About 20 minutes after it happened, we went to the cashier to pay and the person at the cashier said they are going to offer the discount on ONLY one of my friend and no discount on me and my friend. And when i asked the reason, he said because she found the thing; and rest of us didn't. Does it make sense? We ordered the food together and shared the food; it means all people at the table had a chance to eat the food with something on it. However, the man said like, the owner is not here; so it's the only thing that he can do. Even he said, "if you want call the police, do it. Although the police gets here, still it's the only thing we can do." He was so damn arrogant and seriously, he didn't look sorry for us at all. And he said, although you guys found the thing on the surface of the sushi, you guys kept eating and didn't leave. So i said, you mean we had to leave without eating at that time? and he said if we did, he couldn't stop us; but as we didn't leave, it was assumed okay for him, i guess. So i asked him again, if we left at that time, are we not going to pay? and he said there is no "if" and it won't happen again. HOW COULD HE KNOW?
Anyways, it was such a TERRIBLE and FURIOUS MOMENT for me and my friends, and WE ARE NEVER GOING BACK THERE. And i was wondering, if we were Canadian, would the way they treated us be different with the situation we experienced today?
Delicious food and great service. The two people at the register were very helpful and friendly. The grill masters wasted no time. The topping toppers were busy cleaning and building burgers and were helpful with suggestions of what to put on my burger. The burger was delightful. I had the Honolulu burger and anyone who enjoys pineapple on savory foods should definitely try it. The entirely place was very clean. They should consider expanding their shop (even at midday on a Tuesday it was fairly busy) but overall a wonderful experience!
