formed a partnership to create a restaurant business specializing in homemade ice cream products. With only four tables and counter seating for seven, they opened a small business on Linden Avenue in Zanesville , Ohio.
Imagine taking a break from the current environment and traveling back 70 years to the 1950s. This is what a trip to Toms Ice Cream Bowl can be likened to. The burgers and fries are great. Ice Cream is amazing. And the atmosphere is one-of-a-kind. Be sure to grab some roasted Spanish peanuts or cashews for your ride home. Highly recommended!
Love this place, we ride down from Lorain two or three times a summer just to stop at Tom's. Food is good Ice cream is yummy and the service is always great.
Great simple food items, awesome ice cream, all reasonably priced.
The food is great but the ice cream is better! This place has not changed since I was a kid, back in the 1950s. They have a great variety of nuts and candies. The perfect place to go if you are on a weight gaining program.
Great ice cream & best cashews around!
This place is truly a blast from the past! Amazingly huge and delicious Sundays at an extremely affordable price! They are consistentand offer great sandwiches as well! Don't forget to get some heggys chocolates or fresh huge cashews before you leave!
Tom's was always a favorite place of my Dad's to stop. We love everything about it! Can't go wrong with the food from the kitchen or the ice cream! Always a great experience and brings back great memories of my Dad.
I have stopped here for several years. Great ice cream for a great price. I have never heard anybody say they weren't happy with their visit here. I also always buy some chocolates and cashews, both very tasty. Try it, I think you will agree with me!
Best food and service I've had in a long time. You won't be dissapointed. I drive 60 miles to enjoy their cheeseburger! Ice cream is out of this world. The place is clean and nice. The service is excellent.
Great old style ice cream parlor. Can't wait to visit again.
We love to go to Tom's! We had our Grandson from out of town, so we took him there for his first ever visit!! He had a cheeseburger, fries and a Tom's Tracks sundae. He loved it all!! I love their chili and the hot Virginia Ham Sandwich. And the #2 is my favorite sundae!! I also got some nuts and Easter milk chocolate Crosses to go!!! Can't wait to go back again soon!!!
I love this place! the food and ice cream are delicious.
A great place for some icecream. I had a coffee milkshake which was very good. The atmosphere is busy and nice. An old ice cream shop feel which adds to the experience. You can also get hot food if ice cream is not your thing.
Great ice cream place and diner. We stopped by for ice cream and also got some fresh peanuts. We thought the place was great and we will be back for lunch the next time we're in town.
Nostalgic with great service, good food and great ice cream.
Love Tom's. Like stepping back in time. The food is excellent ice cream is to die for. As I was sitting there with my wife I had a flashback when I was a child with my parents and we were eating there and it was exactly the same.
Delicious food and and very clean and polite staff. We love it there
A highlight of a drive along interstate 70 is a stop here. Good old-fashioned sandwiches including a beefy small burger at a great price point and of course the amazing ice cream selection and the sharp traditional ambience. Love it!
Great food awesome ice cream friendly staff and awesome service.
Local institution I've loved since high school! I don't miss the chance to stop here when I come back home to visit. I had the tuna sandwich and a hot fudge sundae. Great service and the ice cream was delicious as always!
Best Sundaes around. Classic atmosphere just like you stepped back in time.
So yummy! Everytime I go I'm amazed at how amazing this place is. It's like stepping back in time and I love everything about it.
Fun fun fun. The nostalgic setting was perfect for the gigantic scoop of good tasting ice cream. I mean huge! I thought they made a mistake and gave me two scoops. Had a sandwich on my next visit and they added something that just made it pop of flavor. Who knew a ham sandwich could just be that good? !
Food and ice cream are excellent plus friendly staff! What a bargain!!
What a wonderful, nostalgic and welcoming place. The service was fast and food delicious! Ice cream confections are huge - you won't go away hungry. We live near Columbus (60 mi away) - whenever we're close now, we stop!
I went there for the first time the other day & I will definitely be back! My kids really enjoyed the old fashion restaurant feel! Great food & ice cream! Not to mention the staff was very friendly & quick on their feet! Thank you Tom's Ice Cream Bowl for a great experience!
Stopped today for ice cream. Loved the atmosphere and the very friendly and super fast service. Our overflowing bowls of ice cream were fantastic! We are about and hour and a half away but I will make it a point to stop here again someday soon. Highly recommend!
Took a friend there for her birthday. Love, love, love the shredded chicken sandwich. It tastes as good as the ones my mother in law made(which were delish!) Oh, the ice cream is simply heaven! I'll stick to a single scoop with some yummy topping. More than that you might need a friend or two to eat it all up.
My Dads favorite place in the world for Ice Cream!! A family tradition for food and ice cream. It is our family gathering spot. Thanks for great food ice cream and service.
Tom's Ice Cream Bowl is a Classic. This is a little difficult to find off I-70, but well worth the time it took fo track this down. This stop we made in November, but we look forward to stopping in a summer months. We had classic sundaes for the time of year. We appreciate the staff courtesy in filling our to-go part of the order we took with us.
