Great little local seafood eatery. Just about anything you want from a walk up restaurant. Always a crowd but short wait times and plenty of outdoor tables.

No glitz or glamour. Just an outdoor "shack" with patio seating serving top-notch seafood. Lobster rolls are tremendous (not doused in mayo like other places), clam balls are superb, and staff is courteous and attentive. Sodas come from a soda machine, and you wait for...More

The sea food is excellent. Raw oysters and shrimps are fresh and delicious. Clam chowder or Lobster bisque, both highly recommended. I also like the lobster roll, the fish tacos and the clam cakes are the best I've ever tried. Fish and chips are also...More

I go to Tommy's at least once a week and never disappointed. Prices are good and portions large. Staff is very friendly and usually bring bowl of clam cakes for those waiting in line.

Expansive menu of offerings will please seafood lover and non lover alike. Tommy’s is a clam shack like others with exclusively outdoor seating. For my money food is tastier and more enjoyable than that “other” place in Warwick. Compare for yourselves.

Yes they do. They are probably now closed for the season. You probably can get the gift certificate from Dockside (next door). They are affiliated.

There is only outside seating at picnic tables. There is no table service. I can't say for sure but I doubt alcohol is allowed. They have vending machines for beverages.
