Unquestionably the best clam chowder I've ever had!! We had fried fish, fried shrimp and crab stuffed shrimp. The fish was a little "tough" but good flavor. The crab stuffed shrimp was excellent. Key lime pie was not too tart, not too sweet. Highly recommend...More

We didn't eat any calm chowder, but we were impressed by the large portions and excellent quality food! Price matches portion sizes, my husband had 4 varieties of shrimp on his platter and it was well worth the money!

You just have to visit Tony's - a three-peat winner of NE clam chowder. Beer is cold, salads are fresh and chowder is delish!

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.
