This restaurant is adorable, all dressed up in 50's fashion. Food is very good, and the candy and nut selection are reasonable too. Great place to visit for an ole fashion milkshake and burger and fries!

Stopped in and had a great lunch. If you are in the area it's a must stop in. Had a hamburger and a hot fudge brownie sunday. However I'm sure any choice would be a good one.

We expected to see Andy, Opie, and Aunt Bea. Loved how they kept up with the old fashion look, even the counter. We only ate ice cream but Ohhhhh was it good! The Tevis family!

Walking into the place it felt like Mayberry. Loved that the young men were dressed in bow ties, gave it a legitimate ice cream parlor feel. Homemade ice cream, fresh brownies, house roasted nuts, and gourmet candies- the walnut caramels were excellent. We will definitely...More

Have visited Tom's for nearly 65 years and it continues to deliver too much good ice cream and the same furniture I recall from the 50's.

They make their own ice cream fresh daily and they also have fresh roasted nuts. the nuts are a little too salty for some tastes. I love their tin roof sundae. I have been going their since 1985. great value also.
