We always receive fantastic service when visiting Tommy B's. The servers have great suggestions and are very knowledgable about their wine pairing. However, the food is subpar. With a pricer menu, I would like to be impressed and excited about the food. BUT -they always are hospitable and welcoming and it is a fun place to go with your significant... More

I ordered the lobster roll sandwich and lobster bisque, both of which I've eaten at several places all over the country. The lobster roll sandwich was spiced ok, but the lobster had a fishy/off taste. The roll would have been good if it were a little softer. The bisque was not very good. Too much spice, way too thick; should... More

It was decent dinnning, but I wasn't a fan of the atmosphere. We made the mistake of going during a major town event and needless to say the place was crowded and loud. The food wasn't terrible, but wasn't worth the price.

Our server was very nice and I really enjoyed my spaghetti and giant meatball. The only thing from making this experience a 5 was the spaghetti had only a small amount of sauce and when I asked for more I just got a dipping sauce size ( about 2 tbsp). I just like my pasta to have enough sauce.

Wife and I have been to Tommy B's twice now. We travel through Valpo from time to time and hear about Tommy B's. Both our lunches were way above average and just the right amount. This visit we had the Prime Rib sandwich - loved it. Staff was friendly and professional.

Service: we went about 4 PM, so not peak time. Our server was also working behind the bar, but he was attentive and gave us everything we needed in a timely manner. Ambience: this restaurant is on the north side of the Square in Valparaiso. It is a bistro, with exposed brick walls, and square tables with butcher paper. The... More

My husband and I have been here twice. The first time I was highly disappointed. We made reservations days before we went. When we showed up it took the hostess a while to notice us even though I was standing right in front of her! After getting her attention and letting her know we had a reservation she still made...

Great food, great atmosphere. The menu has a lot to offer ranging from sandwiches to steak and seafood. They have outdoor seating during the warm months and offer entertainment as well. Newly remodeled bar area is very nice and offers more room for patrons, a definite must stop when you are in Valpo!!!

Went here with friends late in the afternoon (early dinner?). The food was very tasty. Had the avocado chicken salad. The chipolte sauce with it was delicious. Spouse had the prime rib sandwich and liked it as well. Also enjoyed the thin fries and onion rings. Atmosphere was pleasant.
