Tom's Tavern. The old school bar we all grew up drinking at. Awesome atmosphere. The BEST people. Jukebox and pool table.

Tom's Tavern! The minute you walk in the door you feel so comfortable!

Tom's Tavern. This is an authentic, relaxing, cool place. They don't make them like this any more. When you are here, everything is good.

I agree with Tom's Tavern - if they don't know you when you walk in the door , then they are your friends by the time you leave! Great place.

Tom's Tavern is the only place I've found that's just like my old hometown tavern - friendly, comfortable and full of great people of all ages. Number 1 in my book James

Tom's Tavern is unique; it has more character than any other bar in Howell. The walls are rich with pictures of the people (past & present) who have made Tom's what it is. I Love it!

Tom's is hands down the best & friendliest second home to quench your thirst! Not just the best local bar but to factor in it's authenticity my vote is best in State of NJ. C'mon down.

It's like Vegas. What happens at Toms stays at Toms.

I always go to Tom's for the coldest pours and best company.
Bob Mitchell June 24, 2012 at 04:08 AM
Toms Tavern,what can I say? It's a "salt of the earth" bar, an "old man" bar, a "biker bar", a helluva hoot bar, I have a LOT of laughs in there!!! The staff and customers are "family"! for sure!!! Even if a "benny" comes in lost for directions, they may get a little ribbing, but, all in good fun !! GREAT BAR AND GREAT PEOPLE !!! It's a "club house"for us regulars and a place to let your hair down !! Talk about, "I love that bar", I LOVE Toms !! Thanks Rob and Lori !!!!
