Tom & Ray’s Family Restaurant Reopens in Damascus

The popular Damascus family restaurant Tom & Ray’s reopened in a new location Wednesday morning after going out of business three years ago.

“I’m ecstatic to be here and be part of this rich tradition,” said co-owner and general manager Bernie Moxley. “Every small town needs a place like Tom & Rays.”

The restaurant was a staple in the Damascus community until closing its doors. Montgomery County Councilmember Craig Rice believes that its reopening is great for the community.

“This is going to be a great win for Damascus, and a great win for Montgomery County as a whole,” said Rice

Tom & Ray’s Family Restaurant is now located at 9805 Main Street, Suite 206, and they serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner. For more information, visit their Facebook page, and to learn about some of the history and community surrounding the restaurant, watch the County Cable Montgomery video below.

    My late husband and I loved eating at Tom & Rays when we lived in Damascus in 1985-86. I always called you Tom & Jerry’s after the cartoon and he’d correct me. Good food. Good people. Glad you reopened. Best wishes. God Bless.

    We are long time supporters of Tom and Rays having been in Damascus for almost 30 years. The new location is a wonderful update, very tastefully done. We had lunch there recently and it was disappointing. The waitstaff are not as experienced as the old crew and it shows. Vegetable soup was delivered tepid with no crackers, corn beef was so tuff it felt like it had to be wrangled, milk shake came in miniature size, and coke tasted like it had dishwashing liquid in it! I still love Tom and Ray’s but will wait until they sort out the glitches to return.
