Great Fried Clams - Best in Quincy! Nice outdoor atmosphere. Across from Wollaston Beach - People watching is terrific.

The food here is cooked perfectly. If you're wondering if it's better than "the clam box" right down the street, it is, but you definitely pay for the higher quality. The view might make it all worth it.

Look no further, just head down to Wollaston Beach and find a spot to park across the street of in the lot alongside the restraurant. These are the best fried clams in Quincy.

Went to Tony's on a beautiful, sunny fall afternoon with family. We were a mix group, half from Toronto (Canada) and half from Boston. We had a few seafood platters, chowder and steamers. Oh my! The seafood was all on point. The platter was huge! It included big belly clams (as requested), giant scallops, giant shrimp, fish, and either onion... More

You can eat inside and outside at tables under umbrellas and view the ocean. Plenty of seafood, fried or broiled and sandwiches. You can order meals or boxes of fish- clams,... More

Tony's is similar to many of the seafood places along the New England coast line. You do not stop at these places for ambiance. They are all about quick, high quality, basic seafood preparations. You just order your food at the counter and bring it to your table. I got a bucket of steamer clams and a bowl of clam... More

Excellent Lobster Roll. One of the best I've eaten in Boston. Clam Chowder is the best I've eaten . Lots of clams & potatoes, very creamy. I recommend both. Had the fried seafood plate to sample everything. You can't beat locally caught fresh cod and clams. Glad I made this on my list of places to go.

Trip Advisor rarely if ever steers us wrong and this was no exception. It is pricey, BUT, the portions are big enough to split! The clams are delicious and it's always fresh. If you find yourself in Quincy, by mistake, like we did, stop by and have the fresh seafood Tony's has to offer!

Before visiting Tony's Clam Shop I read a lot of reviews about this restaurant. Well. it's more fastfood than restaurant. We ordered the seafood platter on suggestion. Found fresh shrimps, clams and fish and some seafood not to identify, because all fried in the same saltless batter. Therefore 5* on quality and freshness, but a maximum of 3* for the... More
