The red barn is hard to miss, but it’s the smell of oak wood burning that draws you in. Featured on the Food Network show “Diner, Drive-In’s and Dives,” T-Bone Tom’s started out as a local meat market in the ‘60s and has since developed into one of Bay Area’s not-so-hidden gems.
Situated just in front of the Kemah Boardwalk, T-Bone Tom's is known for Texas sized portions. Dig into chicken fried steak with home-made cream gravy or try the spicy blackened catfish for something a little lighter. Be sure not to pass up the barbeque (the smoked sausage and brisket is heavenly). Enjoy live music every Tuesday through Sunday night in Tom’s Back Yard—an outdoor patio with enough seating for all of your friends.
