Came here in a whim based on Yelp reviews. It's a super cute carry-out/dine-in type of shop on the water. The menu can be very intimidating overall but I'm glad we knew what to order going in based on yelp. They serve alcoholic drinks too....More

Decided we wanted seafood and what better than eating outside looking at the water. Great outside seating, cutest buzzer to let you know your food is ready! Both the crabcake sandwich and fried shrimp were made to perfection.

I have been going to Tony's since the 1990s and I can't say enough good things about it. Always a fantastic clam roll. Get whole clams not clam strips - those are for wimps, or worse, Yankee fans.

I don't even like seafood and I can recommend Tony's. Clams like buttah, friends enjoyed a variety of dishes, and the chicken's pretty good, too. The portions are very large, so you might consider sharing an entree.
