Tom's Family Restaurant

Gold Winner Tom's Family Restaurant

Silver Winner Mezza Lebanese Kitchen

Bronze Winner Chef's Menu (now closed)

Nostalgia reigns supreme in Sackvegas. New faces come and go in its restaurant scene, but it’s the long-running family businesses that seem to outlast the rest. Tom’s Family Restaurant is one of them. After a short run of gold wins for Chef’s Menu (which closed in the fall of 2017), Tom’s regains its top spot in Sackville (and in readers’ hearts), earning a seventh gold in this category. Dimitri and Tina Panopalis’ homey 200-seater woos casual diners and massive families with its weekend breakfast buffet, turkey dinners, seafood spreads and Greek specialities.
