A Lifetime of Memories at Tom’s
“Tom’s holds within its’ walls so many of our family’s memories. For over 60 years my family gathered together around your tables to celebrate our most important moments.
Before my parents, Ron and Patt Hoth, got married, they celebrated my grandparents’ birthdays and anniversaries at Tom’s. My love of Tom’s began as a child in the ’60’s, sharing the chop
steak with my little sister, Denise.
For my 10th birthday, I asked to forego a kid’s party, and instead wanted to go to Tom’s for a filet of my own, with just Mom & Dad. They agreed, and on a cold December night we sat at our table with the Christmas decorations sparkling around us. Suddenly, there was a commotion at the next table, and the man seated there stood up then fell over, presumably from a heart attack. Your staff was amazing, never missing a beat while the ambulance was called to take him to the hospital. What an unforgettable birthday memory!
When I got married, my parents hosted a reception in the private dining room with the coral swirled wallpaper forming a backdrop in all of our pictures. We celebrated countless birthdays with you since then, one for Dad in 2006 comes to mind when we somehow all started hanging spoons from our noses after dinner, comfortable to be ourselves at Tom’s. It was hilarious.
When my Dad passed away in 2013 we hosted his luncheon in your dining room with everyone gathering to celebrate his life in his favorite restaurant. He had it in his will that that’s what he wanted! My last picture taken with my Dad was in your lobby the year before. It seems like a lot of my family’s greatest memories come from within the walls of Tom’s!
I don’t think I’ve ordered anything but the filet since 1970 when I turned 10. I couldn’t imagine anything tasting better, except maybe the blend of all three of your dressings mixed together.
Thank you, Tom’s, for the decades of memories!”
