We went twice during our stay in Cedar Key. One was just for a drink, excellent sangria, and we were given a sample of their chowder, and yes, we ordered a bowl. It was delicious. We went back and had a seafood sampler which is...More

Not all restaurants equal their hype but in the case of Tony's it does. The clam chowder is very fresh and yes the best I have ever eaten. The rest of the items on the menu are prepared very well. One note, it only has...More

First let me say that the clam chowder was delicious! Definitely worth the trip because it went downhill from there (but that's for another review) The seafood Poboy sandwich was fresh but could have used a little more seasoning. The place is tiny and fills...More

Limited menu was told due to off season and during the week. I am used to visiting Cedar Key for a week but I guess I won't eat at night.

It was one of the best meals we've had in a long while. We shared a bowl of the famous clam chowder and corn nuggets for an appetizer. The corn nuggets were great too, as they weren't filled with junk but actual corn. We split...More

Unknowingly we arrived a few minutes before closing time. The kitchen was closed, but they were nice enough to offer their house salad and clam chowder. Can't say enough about the clam chowder!! Service was also excellent. Hope to return.

Never heard of that salad. Didn't look for it on the menu. You may want to go online and see if their menu is listed, or, give them a call. Sorry, wish I had more info.
