I often head to TomFooleries on the Plaza for happy hour since it goes until 7 and offers SUPER cheap food and drinks. (i am talking well drinks for $2.25 and food for $2.95). Yes the HH food is smaller than normal, but get 2 apps and you are good to go (or order the fish and chips and you will be surprised that it fills you up). Even when it is not happy hour the drinks are still cheap (and then there is the reverse HH starting at 9). Now that they have the upstairs bar, i feel service has become much better. They also have a small elevated patio as well, which is great in warmer months or if you want to sneak out and smoke.

Tomfooleries has excellent food and it's a great place, but when this place is busy, the staff can not handle it. Last time we were there, we had to wait 20 minutes to get drink refills. They definitely need to hire more staff for the weekends. It's a shame because the food is definitely good and it would be a great place to eat all the time.

I went to Tomfooleries with a group of girlfriends a couple weekends back as part of a girls night out. We enjoyed a wonderful server that was open and friendly with a smile on her face. There was a great variety of food to choose from which was wonderful because none of us like the same thing. The atmosphere was fun and inviting to make the place feel like home. The prices were reasonable and the happy hour specials were amazing. We all enjoyed the Jose Cuervo Margaritas they have. We may have even enjoyed them a little too much. We enjoyed our dinner so much we went back the next day for the Sunday Brunch. It was amazing! The amount of food was more then our eyes could bare. We enjoyed making bloody marys. The Mary's themselves could be a meal with all the different possible choices of condiments. Overall, both trips were wonderful, the food was outstanding and the service was prompt and friendly.

Pros: Friendly Environment, Family Restaurant, Good Drinking Establishment

Cons: the powerful hand dryers in the bathrooms

******DO NO GO TO THIS PLACE***** I must first admit that this restaurant was once top notch but it has declined substantially. Recently I was the victim of terrible service when the associates at this restaurant REFUSED to seat our group after AN HOUR (seriously other customers asked if they wanted us to eat with them because we waited so long!). I talked to the manager who also did not really want our business and the staff was not capable of seating my group, but they were able to seat multiple groups before us. Also to highlight my experience a member of the staff yelled at my group to never come back when we decided we had enough (this group consisted of two senior citizens, four professionals, and four children....not the rowdy type!!!). I would like to think that this was a one time situation, but I was subjected to the same treatment just two weeks prior to this last incident. Also in hindsight I realized was the victim to poor service several times over. So in summary save your time, money, and sanity and do not patron this establishement.

Pros: Close to home.

Cons: They don't really want your business.

We went to the Zona Rosa location and got ripped off. We were there with friends and were charged for drinks that were never ordered or served. We sent back our incorrect check to get a correct one printed out, the new check included a gartuity fee that was not on the first check. After having to wait about 45 minutes to get this check we just paid it and left. We balanced our checkbook the next day and via our online banking statement, we show that the amount from the first check was debited PLUS the gratuity amount from the second "correct" check was also debited. So we were overcharged and then charged an extra gratuity fee! I will never go back to this crappy place to be ripped off.

CONS: RIP OFF

The Sunday brunch value is the best! Everything you want.... and if you're of age go for a great double mary to accompany your meal!

Tom Fooleries is a classy restaurant located near Kansas City's very own plaza and has an incredibly comfortable, yet fancy feel to it. The atmoshpere is casual and classy, both at once and the menu is extraordinary. The many choices are overwhelming, but very inviting. The menu is based on a great variety of tastes and complements everybody's personal preferences, rnaging from burgers, exotic salads and wonderful pasta and chicken dishes.

This is the place to go for a brunch buffet on Sunday mornings or afternoons. A variety of food stretches from one end of the bar to another. They have omelettes made-to-order, breakfast, lunch and dessert. You can have a little of everything and go back as many times as you want.
