It was the first time we had dressed up and eaten at a nice restaurant in 1 1/2 years. Chose Tom Brown's as we had never been there. Loved the place from the moment we walked in as the decor was fabulous. Staff was very pleasant, and our waiter was outstanding! Saw food on the menu I had never seen before. We had 5 different entrees, and all were delicious. Before dinner drinks were great, and the desserts were fabulous. It was a truly special evening...a bit pricey but we vowed to come back.

The King Salmon was fantastic. I asked for it to be cooked just below medium and it was absolutely perfect.

The steak was actually tough and chewy. The sauce was a little too heavy on the egg roll appetizer. Flavors were good. Atmosphere was great. Service was top notch. Would I recommend it? eh...not sure

The food was great. We got the tuna app, lobster bisque, ribeye, and shrimp. Steak was pretty undercooked (ordered med rare and it was as rare as the tuna 😅) but by that time we were stuffed, so just took it to-go and it was perfect for reheating later. Service was very good even though our server was quite busy with a needy 10-top at the same time. I let her know we didn't want to rush the evening and everything was paced well. When I made the reservation on OpenTable I left a note saying that it was my husband's birthday dinner. Would've been nice for that to be acknowledged in some small way but I guess it got missed somehow. Still was a great evening and we will return.

The food was good. I had the shrimp and grits.

There really wasn't anything on the appetizer menu that was simple and enjoyable, everything was either seafood or hot and spicy.

Our server did a great job.

Celebrated our anniversary. We had appetizers, steak and fish, desserts and drinks - it was all great.
Our server was very kind and attentive.
Since we don’t buy gifts for anniversary it was worth the money.

Not a single employee was masked. We had all been vaccinated, but we won’t be back for a while. The service was okay, but less than advertised. The wine list is good as are the house wines. The craft beer list is diverse. My “2 soft shell crabs” were the front portions of two halves, nowhere near two crabs. The TB steak got a good review.
This will not be a favorite.

The food is delicious in every way from the appetizers to desert.
Shrimp cocktail, shrimp were large and tasted perfect.
Fried green tomatoes were cooked to perfection, crisp and lit up our taste buds.
Ribeye, we both had the ribeye, one 12 & one 16 oz. They were cooked perfect and the only bad part was the amount of fat in the steak, seemed more than what is acceptable for me on the $.
We had the Strawberry layer cake and it too was delightful.

My wife & I don't partake of alcoholic drinks when dining so our final bill at $120 plus tip was a deal for the quality of food & service!

Too much Air conditioning! We were cold throughout the meal.
I think they could at least provide a desert for a 50th anniversary!
Food and service was very good.

Service was incredible, they were so sweet and knowledgeable on the menu items. The food was out of this world: appetizers, main course, and dessert. I went here on a date with my boyfriend to celebrate our anniversary and we sat outside by the fire, it was so beautiful. I do not have enough good things to say about this place!!!

The food and service was excellent. Everything I had was delicious-shrimp corn and crab bisque, Caesar salad, baked potato and Chilean Sea Bass.
The strawberry cake was the best I’ve ever eaten! It was as if angels from heaven came down and sang on my shoulder while I ate it!
The Purple Rain martini was excellent as well!

The restaurant is very nice inside and the patio is large and had heaters for when the weather is cooler. The waiter was really good and personable. The appetizer (TB Pork Egg roll) was amazing, the ribeye, however, was not that good. It seemed to be cooked to medium rare, as ordered, however it was a quite thin piece of meat and was very tough. Connor’s steakhouse has much better steaks, in my opinion. I probably won’t go back for a second try. That’s unfortunate, as it is close to my house and I was hoping for another place to enjoy a nice dinner out.

VERY good food. I recommend highly to go there! It's rather pricey! My filet was a tad over-cooked but it tasted so good I didn't even care. For $44 filet I do expect the temps to be on point.

We really loved Tom Brown’s previous times we ate there, but I have to say this past time was not good. The main issue was the quality of the ribeye steak. It was tough and chewy. Unfortunately that was what my husband was looking forward to most. We were sad to hear that the kitchen was out of oysters which were outstanding the last time we had them. The other appetizers we had were very good. Our server Briley was very efficient and knowledgeable.

Food was average but good; however it is very expensive for a casual setting. Spending $100+ per person, you would expect a more elegant setting and not shorts and flip flops.
