“Until then, we expect busier days and extended wait times for service,” he said in a statement. We appreciate your patience and patronage as we wind down 36 years of Tommy’s.”

SeamonWhiteside will provide landscape architecture, civil engineering and modeling services for the incoming restaurant.
