Wanted a quiet relaxing drink and meal with friends and we were so disappointed by the food menu that we had a drink and left. The menu was very limited and what we decided might be okay contained sausage and they had forgotten to order...More

Tom's have moved to a location beside Fireside on Birmingham Street. The decor can be off-putting as it is small and looks rather shabby. We came for the weekend brunch and we were very pleased with our choices. I had a burrito with home fries....More

We have visited here a couple of times for lunch. It hasn't been very busy at the times we were there. It is small but cozy. Excellent food, good service. Cool atmosphere. Some people playing board games, etc. Great value.

Tom's is a basic, not frills local kinda place. The food is great and there's a decent selection of local beer. Enjoyed the fish burger and drink. There are a few game boards kicking around if interested. Relaxed and low-key.

This place has good food, and an amazing selection of local beer on tap. It's small, but the atmosphere is a nice one. Good for business travellers, or just hanging out with some friends.

We were the only cigar bar in Atlantic Canada from 1997 to 2006... then the world went non-smoking! We have continued on as a favorite in the city as a neighborhood style bar specializing in Craft Beers from Nova Scotia. Some of the best service in the city and a perennial winner of 'Best Place for a first Date in Halifax'!! Sunday nights are Trivia nights from 7:30 - 9:30. Also try 4 x 5oz craft beer flights for $7! Wednesdays are #wingsdays with Cajun and house wings cheap all day One of the best brunches in the city on Saturday and Sunday!
