A take-out place with outdoor eating, and you can buy your fishing supplies inside as well. The service was a bit casual, but the tacos with their special sauce lived up to reviews posted here. Too bad there isn't a real sitdown service and more in the way of sides/drink choices. It does have good espresso.

A bad experience; hopefully an isolated incident based on the mostly rave reviews that this restaurant has received. Ordered the Grilled Rock Fish with Cilantro Lime sauce (the diner chooses what will be used to baste the fish as it grills). My order was served and the fish was not grilled - not a grill mark in sight. It looked like it had been poached and it was covered with what tasted to be their butter/garlic sauce which had green flecks of dried lime zest and not a bit of cilantro. Butter/garlic was one of the sauce choices and I definitely did not want it so was doubly disappointed that it was slathered on the fish. The texture of the fish was OK; it was just not cooked the way that I expected and definitely not sauced as ordered. There were 4 filets, I ate a whole one and was going to make the best of it. When I took a bite out of the next piece, it had a completely off taste, so I left the rest. Not worth it to complain because at that point there wasn't anything else on their menu that I would have wanted. I was that disappointed that if the restaurant didn't have the sauce and/or wasn't able to grill that I should have been informed so that I could have ordered something different. Feeling as if the wool had been pulled over my head but unwilling to make a whimper because at that point it just wasn't worth it.

My husband and I LOVE coming to Tony's whenever we come to town! That's usually several times throughout the year. Great atmosphere and view of the boardwalk/bay. The fish taco's, steamer clams & oysters ROCK!! We've also tried the seafood platter and it was excellent too! (Steamer clams, 1/2 a crab and shrimp scampi). There are only 3 shrimp-it would seem more of a value with 5, imo. My husband loves, loves, LOVES the grilled oysters! It comes with 6 and he usually gets 3 cilantro lime and 3 teriyaki. I'm not a fan, but he is an oyster connoisseur and he said they are grilled to perfection! The crab melt is also excellent with a generous portion of crab and it comes with homemade chips. YUM! Chowder is very good….Just go! - you won't be disappointed!!

Really good. Fresh and tasty. Portions were small and prices high but really tasty. My daughter got the clams for dinner but was still hungry after. Her dinner came with a piece of toast. I would suggest ordering chowder to go along with meal.
