We have thoroughly enjoyed breakfast 2 different times at Highway House! The food is delicious and large portions! The homemade quiche is excellent! We look forward to eating there again!

Service and quality can vary, but when they are good--they are very good. Full bar is an added attraction.

We came for an early T-Day dinner. Like most restaurants on T-Day, a turkey special was offered. However, unlike most restaurants on T-Day, we could order anything on the menu. Our waitress made us feel extremely comfortable under circumstances where someone with different dietary preferences might naturally be uncomfortable. And the food was quite good too.

Our hotel receptionist recommended Thomi's and we were NOT disapointed! We noticed serving sizes were generous so we ordered the half sandwich special. I had the five cheese grilled sandwich with onion soup. Delicious! Husband had his favorite tuna sandwich and onion rings. He enjoyed both too. Great food and service!

Thomi's has a wide selection of dishes to choose from. Their burgers are very good and their salads are huge. The service is better than average, with friendly waitresses. They are extremely busy at lunch, so occasionally the plates are a little sloppy coming out of the kitchen. We try to get there by 11:30, if we're going for lunch.

Driving through Jackson, we attempted to go to the Mexican restaurant next to Thomi's Cafe, only to discover that they are closed from 2-5 p.m. most days. So, the only choice we had was Thomi's. I'm so glad it was open. The atmosphere is about what you'd expect from a diner/cafe in the gold country - casual, clean, & spacious.... More
