Good good,good service.

Tony's was a nice experience. I tried their beef kabob which was good. It is a family atmosphere and everyone was happy with their dinner. Our waiter was attentive and helpful. I would recommend this as a good choice For a casual dinner.

1st they had a new bartender on the patio side. OK she is new, but no real back up. Where is the manager !! 2nd. food is OK. the picture of the pizza is bogus...never seen one like that.

Ever been in a restaurant and gotten the creeps? We ate a late lunch at Tony's yesterday and I will never return. I ordered the Italian Beef sandwich with fries. The meat was slimey and tasted like it had been reheated and re-purposed numerous times and it was overly salted, which as anyone knows is how restaurants keep food for... More

This place is terrible...It's time to close the doors. The low quality Pepperloin is disgusting served in a pool of melted butter..I had a garlic butter taste stained in my mouth for hours..yuck!! Garlic potatoes were the same way. I eat at a lot of nice restaurants and this definitely isn't one of them. Here's a list of nice restaurants...Gentelin's... More

I had the Tony peppersteak. 8 oz. Baked potatoe, medley vegetables. And a bell's beer. Food hot and good quality material. cooked just as I ordered it and very tasty. $24 for the meal. $5 for the beer. Not bad at all for a very good meal. Went with eight friends and each and everyone liked their meal as much... More

I had a steak in the bar area. I bar and restaurant were busy (It was New Years Eve) and I was having an early dinner. My steak came out in a small white plate. I noticed that other tables had their steaks come out on a hot metal/wood platter which no doubt kept their steak warm. I asked to... More

Been eating the pepperloin for 20 years. Still the best steak around. Never been disappointed with my meal. For under 25$ the larger pepperloin is a very good value especially compared to other similar resteraunts. The pizza is a bit too much garlic for me. Appetizers are a bit pricey. I love this place.

Pizza order was wrong, twice. Pizza was okay. Salad okay, no offer of cracked black pepper though. New waitress, nice and we tipped, just not up to speed yet. Bar side were we dined was warm and humid. Kitchen staff member was wearing an inappropriate t-shirt. Luke warm recommendation.

If you want a perfectly cooked steak, this is the place. Mine is cooked a perfect medium rare every single time, and it melts in my mouth. Great for couples!

Horrible food, stay away! Slow, slow, slow service, orders confused. Food is inedible! Everything that's supposed to be savory is sweet as nectar. Diabetics stay away, you'll go into a coma. Overrated and overpriced!
