Order eggs and it comes in a frying pan, they actually bring the eggs to the table in the frying pan the eggs were cooked in. The hot pan sits on a plank of wood. Sounds weird, but it's very smart because your eggs stay warm, you may not want to eat breakfast off a plate after eating here. I... More

The gentleman who took of the customers didn't need our names. He remembered our faces and connected with us when our seats were available. We waited about 15-20 minutes. The waitress was friendly and our coffee was replenished as needed.

Everyone I spoke to (who loves the place) believes that eating your eggs out of a skillet makes the diner a great place to visit. I call eating your eggs out of a worn-out food-encrusted skillet - camping. Was the portion size large? Yes; but that doesn't mean I was served an omelet that tasted better than those made at...

It has been there forever, it's noisy and cramped, parking is terrible, they don't accept credit cards and you have to wait on line in the cold to get in And it's totally worth all that hassle. Food is fantastic, portions are huge with many entrees served in their own frying pan. Service is excellent, prices very reasonable and there... More

Imagine your eggs being served in a skillet. That is Thomas'sI Served hot with home fries or french fries, and toast. Ham, bacon, or sausage available and will be cooked to order. Service like you would expect at home. A go to place for lunch and dinner as well. Consistently outstanding!!

I love Thomas's Ham & Eggery Diner. The staff is very friendly and welcoming, even when faced with lines of hungry diners out the front door. The food is cooked to order and served on skillets--and it is very good. There is a wide selection of items on the menu, and the cost is very reasonable. Thomas' is one of... More

What a treat coming to the East coast and finding a great Diner. The Northwest doesn't have Diners like Thomas's. Nova Scotia, Lox ,Eggs, & Onions were fantastic.

My parents took me here ever since I was a kid. They have THE best ham and cheese omelettes. I haven't found a better one on LI.
