Our experience was outstanding! The menu has a large variety. We ordered family style. We got to try a lot. This restaurant knows how to please everyone. There is even a comedy club there. We ate and laughed, what more does anyone else want. Thanks Big Tommy's!

“skimpy soup serving”
Reviewed 14 January 2014

I ordered greek salad with bowl of soup combo. The very nice waiter brought me a tiny cup of soup. My bill said "bowl soup-greek salad". There are 2 different prices on the menu for the bowl and cup of soup. I'm just getting tired of having to ask for the actual portion size that is stated on a menu, it's exhausting. Eating out is supposed to be relaxing.

“Greektown in Novi!”
Reviewed 10 November 2013 via mobile

Excellent service and warm greeting. Diverse menu but with all the greek favorites. The chopped salad with dill was fantastic. I had a mini kabob and it was great. The tziki sauce was garlicky and delicious. My hubby had a combo platter that was huge. Even he had to take some home! I would recommend this place tj anyone who wants the great greek food and doesn't mind forgoing the greektown ambience....or drive!

“You have to try this place”
Reviewed 9 November 2013

This is one of the best dining experiences I have had in many years. It is not just about great food. it is about friendly caring owners, staff and help. They treat you like good friends.
Tommy has owned some very good Detroit area restaurants in the last 30 years and this place shows the best of them.
Handshakes and hugs for return customers.
Every meal came out hot , fresh, and well prepared. Every item from the Chicken chops, the Greek salads, lamb chops , and stir fry , was excellent. Even the french fries were delicious.
The bread with dipping sauce was wonderful too. Do not miss the rice pudding or the home made yogurt with cherry sauce.
The meal prices are $10 to $25 and the portions are large. The family platters looked huge.
There is also a comedy club in the lower level on Saturday night and valet parking.
I will say that the customer base is a bit on the elderly side , so i guess that Tommy has customers with huge expectations to please . They keep returning so He must be doing many things right.
The televisions with the Michigan football game and Red Wing hockey was nice too.
The bar looked stocked pretty well too so it might be a good place to stop for a drink and desert too.
I guess we came on a good night.
I give the place a 9.5+ .(nobody gets a 10) :)
