"I was a regular here, kind of lived in the place for several years. It was kind of home for me so I got in on all the goings on including the rumors. There was one great one about a fugitive from NYC hiding in the basement space. The staff kept finding stuff down there that suggested someone was trying to hook into their internet connection. Another time, someone dumped what looked like bloody bandages in the garbage bins. Some unscrupulous scammer was promising to properly dispose of medical waste, but instead was dumping it in private trash receptacles. Management had already lined up a medical waste disposal service to get rid of it, when the culprits were caught and forced to pick up their mess. Was the top story on the local news for weeks. Just a reminder that the food, however fantastic, was never the total story." Don Travers

Tech Talk at Happy Hour!!
A team of us from the company I work for were in Brooklyn working with a large organization helping them with their Salesforce CRM. We're all techies. Our job directive was to work on specialized app development for Salesforce for this company's mobile applications. We had just finished the initial stage of the job and wanted to celebrate. One of the company's IT guys suggested Top Shelf. He said "Happy Hour is the Best. And if you like karaoke, this is the night to go." None of us had ever been to New England and we were all crazy karaoke nuts, so we were all in for the adventure. So while we ate some amazingly good food- loved that lobster roll which apparently isn't always available, we discussed the ins and outs of Salesforce's programming language, APEX along with how we would be able to support every aspect of the software and product development life cycle of Salesforce. We has finished the feasibility analysis, user experience design, and prototyping, and were now ready to development some great scalable, winning solutions. I did say we are techies. Well as the evening wore on we abandoned shop talk and got into the karaoke. We'll be back when we don't have to get up early the next morning. You can be sure. Next time I want to try the scallops.

Four Stars-But Staff Needs More Training
For those of us who have lived in the Concord, NH area for any length of time, you know this location has seen three or four restaurants come and go. Perhaps this time, the newest eatery, Tandy’s Top Shelf, might just make it.
The main restaurant rooms are nicely appointed, and there’s a “back room” area that can accommodate large gatherings. The ambiance is good. The two different dishes I’ve tried have been excellent.
I would have given Tandy’s Top Shelf s a 5-star rating but some of the staff need an attitude change. I don’t know if they are inexperienced or are always in a bad mood, perhaps they were tired out after the New Year. Good personable staff can make a huge difference in the diners’ experience.
Dishes Tried & Liked
Fresh Berry and Shrimp Salad
A colorful mix of fresh flavors, the fresh berry and shrimp salad is a tasty deal for a lunch or dinner entree.
When their seasonal lobster roll is available, it’s my favorite choice. The chef goes light on the mayo, letting the lobster carry the taste. Delicious, delicious!!

Great Quick Lunch Spot
Tandy’s is a great addition to the Concord area. We live about an hour away, yet we stop in frequently if passing through Concord to attend our kids’ high school sporting event or when we have business in Concord itself. Tandy’s Top Shelf offers a fast lunch menu that is very reasonably priced. We have found that the menu has a little bit of Americana for everyone’s taste. The chef includes his / her own twist on casual dining classics for a bit of a change.
Our kids love dinner at Tandy’s which is priced right for our pocketbookThe one time that we stopped in later in the evening, the place was really alive.
I highly recommend Tandy’s for easy casual dining. Hope that you enjoy it as much as we do.
