“Best Oysters in the Bay Area!”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

Tommy's is one of our neighborhood gems that offers a great bar scene, awesome food and tremendous service. My hubby and I always sit at the bar and have made acquaintances with many new people we look forward to hanging with whenever we go there, which is about once a week. The oysters are divine. I am not a lover of cooked oysters but theirs are delicious. Must try the raw oysters Mignonette. Yum. Our fave bartender is Cindy but Brian and the others are great, too! Tommy's is also wonderful for bringing in different "appellations" of oysters from different areas of the Gulf of Mexico. Although we very rarely see him, Tommy is the "sommelier" of oysters and knows his bivalves!

“Excellent Happy Hour”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

Recently visited this restaurant for the Oyster special during Happy Hour. The oyster's were fresh and excellent in taste. We also tried the Calamari which was among the best we have
ever had any where, the Mussels left a little to be desired, definitely over cooked but eatable.
Fried green tomatoes definitely had Italian flavor with heavy Marinara sauce and too much
overcooked batter.

“Stellar!”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

Before my trip to Houston I googled places for a nice dinner, this exceeded ALL expectations. The service was outstanding and the food was some of the best I have ever had. Everything was served quickly and was in and out for a 3 course meal in under an hour. I would drive to Houston just to eat here!

“Solid seafood and steak place near NASA”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

Tommy's suffers from the sameness that plagues all restaurants in this area, which is to say you start from the position of being in an office building or strip mall, not terribly distinctive or stylish. But once you get out of the parking lot and into the restaurant, it is a reasonably hip (for Clear Lake) restaurant with an almost-kind-of-happening bar scene, and they DO sling a cold and generous martini. The seafood is what you'd expect, with lots of local gulf oysters and shrimp and such, accented with a few nice flown items like Ahi tuna. The Lobster Bisque on special the evening I visited was a bit thick and heavy and seemed like it probably was a previously frozen food service product, but the giant gulf shrimp were fresh, nicely seasoned, breaded and fried, and the tarter and cocktail sauces were just right. Seared ahi salads looked very nice. And, three of us ate very well, enjoyed a nice glass of wine with our meal and split a dessert, and still managed to get out for about $50 per person. So, overall quite acceptable and, if in the area on business, would go again.
