Tony’s is a small quaint restaurant in Cedar Key. Their clam chowder is the best I’ve had. You can also go to their web site to order it as well.

The clam chowder is yummy. Hushpuppies crispy and very tasty. I love hush puppies. Steamed clams husband enjoyed, I'm not a fan. Staff very friendly. Restaurant small but clean. Need a better beer selection tho.

Tony's is the place to be in Cedar Key! They were quite busy when we arrived (a good sign), but we were seated promptly. The waitress was friendly and attentive. And of course, the clam chowder was the BEST I have ever had! Seriously, THE...More

Stopped by during the Seafood Festival, and yes, it was crowded. Luckily, Tony's had someone serving up their clam chowder, just outside the restaurant, which made in convenient for everyone. Hopefully, next time, we'll be able to eat inside, after the crowds dwindle.

Ok---it is true. Their clam chowder (award winning) is to die for! Everyone in the group I was with raved about it, so naturally I tried. If you even only like clam chowder a little bt, then it's a must try.

This restaurant is delightful! The staff is super friendly and the local clams are cooked to perfection! They even sell their famous clam chowder in a can to take home and serve yourself! This is an adorable dinner spot in Downtown Cedar Key, Florida!More

Tony's has won awards consistently at New England Clam Chowder competitions and I understand why. Lots of clams, just the right amount of thickness and spice and not overwhelmed by potatoes. In short - perfect!
