Fresh!

Ordering at Tony's is confusing but worth it because the food is fresh and delicious. As you go down the cafeteria line you can order single items, however, the easiest is getting a dinner box which entails one meat, two sides, and one bread for $7.99. All of their food is to go (no seating) and... read more

I have frequented this place my whole life, the seafood is impeccable I've never had anything below amazing the hot lunch line is some of the best Louisiana and soul food you'll ever eat, the baked fish, macaroni, mash potatoes, cornbread, green beans. I could eat it every day! It's in a bad part of town but they're always police... More

This is more than a restaurant. It is a seafood market, having fresh, swimming in a jumbo pool--catfish, fresh crawfish (in season), fresh shrimp, oysters, and other seafood, so you can order what you want and take it with you to cook at home. Or you can go down the counter to the area where fresh seafood and Louisiana delicacies... More

The last time I was at Tony's was the first time I was disappointed. I went specifically to get some fresh lump crab meat and arrived at 9:00 am. They did have any fresh, but they had some frozen. Ok, it was Good Friday. I should have known better. But since it is a 10-mile drive there, I bought some... More

First, don't expect to eat it there. Everything is to go. But it is so worth it. Cafeteria style hot food line that has seafood prepared many different ways. Also, cajun classics like dirty rice, boudin balls, poboys. Prices are reasonable. Service is quick, even with a line. It's hard to make a selection, because everything looks so great. The... More

This place is basically a take out, but has the best boiled crayfish and crabs in town. Perfectly cooked and great seasoning. Not too hot. Very crowded and parking is tuff. Officers located to assist with parking. Seafood s market price.

This is a combination seafood market, deli-cafeteria and store. I don't even try to boil crawfish anymore since they do it do well. You can pick out live catfish from their tank and they'll dress it for you. Pick out lunch from the cafeteria counter or they'll fry fresh seafood while you wait. No dining on site, everything's to go.

The food here is exceptional!!! Location can be intimidating, but the property is well guarded by off-duty sheriffs department This is a great place to pickup a variety of South Louisiana meals, such as a Crawfish Pie to bake at home, a bag of boiled crawfish or shrimp to enjoy in your backyard with your family, or delicious desserts to...

You can never go wrong with Tony's Seafood. They have the best seafood in town. They also have Louisiana products for sale if you are looking to send out of town friends a taste of Louisiana. I love the flavor of the crawfish and the fish is always fresh. There is never a long line to wait in and the... More

This is THE place locals go for the absolute freshest seafood around. You can actually pick your catfish out swimming in a tank and have it cooked on the spot! I go here for the best crabs and crawfish. Whenever we cook up a seafood gumbo it is "off to Tony's!" We swing by just to grab some boudin balls... More
