    We had a lovely evening celebrating my son's birthday. He is 24 and there were 6 of us. We had no idea what to expect. We all enjoyed our meals and would plan to go back. The fish taco's were a crowd pleaser.

    We had such a great experience at Tommy Ruff! 6 of us celebrated my daughters 8th birthday at the restaurant and we were so impressed with the team working there - everyone was so energetic, friendly and went above and beyond to make my daughter feel special. The food was also delicious and great value. Will definitely be back again soon!

    I ordered the Southern fried fish and chips and it was the best I've had. The slaw needed a little more dressing but overall one of the best meals I've had in ages. Staff were super friendly

    Everything was good, except out of the King George Whiting, also the glass supplied to me with my Scotch, not a good choice for drinking out of. it had a very strange lip on it.

    My idea to dine here as I thought it was a fresh seafood restaurant and my expectations were unrealistic. Staff are lovely, service A1. Sangria spicy and keeping it real real. The music and acoustics brain numbing but hey I am a daggy baby boomer and enjoy conversation. Great place for families. Next time I will go a niche meal at home with fish fingers and potato gems.

    The food was very average for the price, although the salads were fresh and the salt and pepper calamari was decent. . The server was quite insistent to take our order as soon as we sat down which was annoying, and we then waited 50+ minutes for our food to arrive which was disappointing. Drinks were mediocre. I'll probably never go again, save your money and go to your local fish and chips, the food will be better.

    This is a really tough time in Melbourne for local businesses - Staff shortages due to Covid are a huge challenge. We could see ho much effort the limited team put in to make everyone comfortable and still enjoy their meal and time at Tommy Ruff. An outstanding effort and really great place to be.
