We planned to eat at the Marshall store on our drive from Mendocino into San Francisco but had arrived too late. One of the workers suggested Tony's down the street. We were quite hungry as we had been river kayaking prior to our road trip and had been tasting oysters in our minds the whole way. We ordered a plate... More

Liked: the huge crabcakes were yum, came on a large salad with fries. The crab claws were not as fresh as I would like. Tasted of ammonia, husband ate them anyway. Expensive, long line to order.

This was our first time to Tomales and to Tony's. We just wanted to get some appetizers since it was too early for dinner and were really looking forward to oysters. We had passed by some other places because they were so jam-packed and cars were parked for a mile down the road. Thought we might be disappointed with Tony's... More

Our last visit to Tony's was disappointing. The clam chowder was thin and clam-less, and my crabcakes had shells in them. Their BBQ oysters are still very good, however.

My husband got the BBQ oysters and loved them. I got the fish sandwich and fries. We shared a peel-n-eat shrimp. We did not leave hungry. The service was excellent. The restaurant sits on the water and has an amazing view.

I've been going to Tonys for 20 years - it's been our go-to lunch spot 2-3 times a year when we drive up to West Marin. After today we may change our tradition. The service was slow (despite several servers and a not-full restaurant), our server never offered a smile, the cream curdled when I put it in my coffee,... More

This is one of my favorite stops literally winding my way through Marin; stop at Marshall, Tomales Bay for BBQ oysters and beer. Continue voyage to Russian River towards Bodega Bay, point out Alfred Hitchcock movie spots, turn into Occidental Rd to Bohemian Highway and lounge at Monte Rio beach. Perfect. I hate the smoky greasy smell in the restaurant,... More

Funny that along this stretch of Scenic Highway 1 that so many people crowd into other oyster establishments when this one usually has parking and dependable food. We've been going here for at least 14 years and probably more than that. It is an old favorite with my husband and I. The drive from Novato is so relaxing and beautiful,... More

Three words: Expensive Lousy Food. First time in my life I've ever had clam chowder that tasted like plain milk with a few undercooked potato chunks and a few small clams in it. Absolutely no seasoning or vegetables at all in the soup. I added salt and pepper just to flavor the milk. Yuk! Tried the barbecued oysters, half were... More

Tony's was exactly what we were looking for- an authentic, right on Highway One overhanging Tomales Bay, old-style seafood restaurant. BBQ oysters brought to our table by a smiling older gentleman who seemed very happy to be there, and a classic oyster sandwich with fries was excellent. Great views of the bay!
