Over priced food with way over priced drinks. Limited menu choices. With small portions. Not worth it. With so many choices of places to eat in royal oak, I would recommend you check out other places. Will not return

Food was good but way over priced. As for atmosphere...very appauled by the 3 drunk people at the bar. Very bad language. One guy actually pulled his shorts down right in our view. So glad i didnt take my mother there

Everytime I go here I get what I expect, excellent food at reasonable prices. If you like oysters, try them here. We had the salt life sampler it was simply delicious. I had the lobster tails and they were yummy as well.

I've been visiting Tom's for over 20 years now. It's always a great little place to meet people for an appetizer or spirit. The service is always great and the menu has plenty to choose from!

I eat here maybe once a month. I can't remember the last time I had a bad meal. I highly recommend the mussels as an app. The fish is always fresh and the oysters are top notch.

Tom's Oyster Bar is always a good spot for a bit of fish and a good brew. He never disappoints. This time was three lobster tacos and a cold pilsner (or two). Excellent knowledgeable staff helps.

I remember when the first Tom's opened in Detroit. Boy the times have changed. Just another niche spot in a hot neighborhood. Appatizer dip came with 4 slices of bread when clearly 6-8 were needed. Food good, but small portions. If you've been to another...More

A quick glass of wine on a warm fall day - outdoor seating and 2 fab appetizers. Oyster Rockefeller and tempua shrimp were OUTSTANDING - quick and pleasant service . We will be back.

Went for a family birthday celebration. Our server, Kim, was fantastic. She felt like a member of the family by the time we were done. All food was brought out timely, water glasses, with ice, never got empty, and we were asked if we wanted...More
