The food was fantastic and our server, Raymond, was super friendly and helpful! Definitely recommend the paella!
Amazing seafood, awesome location and views! Definitely a place to enjoy a special occasion!
As soon as you walk upstairs, friendly greetings from the staff. Waiters were definitely a team. Didn’t matter who was your waiter from the start, everyone was always checking in to see how we were doing. Food was amazing. Calamari and soup of the day were great starters! Will definitely return for more!
What a view, what a delicious menu! We sat at the bar and had tenderloin tips and roasted cauliflower for appetizers, then shared the asparagus salad and scallop dish for entrees. Everything was fabulous, the bartenders were efficient and very friendly, we love the place! I’m sure in non-pandemic times, they have a larger wine menu, but the offerings were good for a small menu. Oh, and we told them my birthday was the next day but we couldn’t get reservations at the time we wanted, and they surprised me with a lovely piece of birthday cake!
You guys are kickass. Everyone was so nice! From bus boys to the servers. Hospitality unmatched.
I ordered their Crab Louie Salad and while it was a generous portion the crab meat was tasteless-perhaps snow crab rather than regular crab. My husband ordered their burger-"medium" and it was cooked "well"-so it was dry. The service was good and the views are wonderful. In the past it was one of our favorite places but we were very disappointed with the food this time, I don't think we will return for a while.
Cannot beat the views!! For vegetarians, not a lot of options to select from
Good food. Good location. Good ambience. Good service.
It was perfect fit for mother’s day dinner, and they were even able to accommodate getting us my favorite table. Pro top: ask for the Two top in the back facing water inside dining room. Our waiter Raymond made the dining experience that much better. The oysters, crab and tenderloin were perfect!
It was a fantastic setting for a date night. The view of downtown and the bay was stunning.
The food, service and view of the bay were very good. The only detractor was a table of loud people, which the restaurant couldn’t really control.
2nd deck seating better than lower deck. Service was great. Food portion not worth the value
Good food and fast service.
Our dinner was so elegant and it was such a special time. We even got a sweet desert because we were celebrating our anniversary. It was really amazing.
We really enjoyed the view, the food, and our service.
The view of the bay and the lights of downtown is terrific. It was very comfortable on the deck with heaters keeping the chill off. The menu is rather limited and lacked the sirloin steak I was hoping to enjoy there. But the items we ordered were all well prepared and we very much enjoyed the experience.
It’s a good experience. We went for lunch and the menu choices was ok. Love the oysters :)
Everything was outstanding! Wonderful Waitress, Molly!
I love the view and openness of the space. A delight to enjoy the harbor area.
Excellent food and great wine list. Service is good. Beautiful views.
Perfect way to celebrate our mother! Food was delicious and ambiance and view was just perfect!
Great service, great food, wonderful views
Was not impressed. Expected much more in terms of food quality. Calamari was uneatable . Overcooked and felt like chewing rubber. Very very bad. Do not order calamari. My fish was dry and tasteless. I simply can’t recommend this restaurant to any one.
Great restaurant but little disappointed in the crab blt. Other then that service was wonderful and waiter was great! The sandwich was a bit dry, not much flavor, we would still come back to your beautiful restaurant and amazing staff!
We went to Tom Hand for our Anniversary, it did not disappoint lobster was delish as always, mussels and clams also very good. Our waitress was nice and informative, even the budget was nice.
If I had to make a comment on something that needed improvement, I would say the deserts, cream brulee was so so, and the cheesecake wasn't fresh,
We don't go to Tom Hand for the deserts, we go for the seafood, the cocktails.
Our dinner was delish, and we will be back,
Love it! Great BD experience for the hubby.
We had a great brunch. Pancakes were amazing and the service was excellent.
Always a nice view, good food.
Perfect location and ambience for a sunny day by the water front ! Great comfort food and service as well !
Was looking forward to a brunch menu to find out they only have it for Sunday’s
Tom Hamm's Lighthouse is our go-to choice for a bayside restaurant, especially when hosting visitors. The food is great, the view is spectacular, and the service is outstanding. And parking is plentiful, unlike many other waterside restaurants.
Great place for lunch or dinner. You can’t beat the views or the food.
Everything was great!!! The view was unbelievable!!
Had a great birthday dinner for my spouse. Food was tasty, I still remember the side of Brussel sprouts. I called a day prior to the reservation to request an outdoor table with a good view of the bay, and the staff made it happen. Would definitely go back.
Nice Outdoor dining experience with a view! Meal of ‘ok’ but the service was outstanding! Nice place to dine to enjoy the SD skyline
Best view in the city for dining. Kind of has a country club vibe but the service is outstanding and the food is good. I say good, not great. Short rib was awesome, scallops so so.
A beautiful day and great Food, drink and service! One of our favorite places
The view was amazing, super friendly staff and good food.
Nice view. Good for gathering. Complimentary cake that was quite good.
Luz & Abel helped make my daughter’s birthday extra special. Thank you!
