This was an Italian Club in 1936 and has been a Portuguese restaurant since the mid 80s. The menu is somewhere between those ethnicities and time lines. We stopped for lunch somewhat on the spur of the moment, but have been meaning to try this place for a long time. On a Friday afternoon we were among the youngest in... More

We really enjoyed our food. My partner had seafood platter. I had surf and turf. Filet melted in mouth and his platter was terrific; It was lightly battered. I did not care for the way thre tail was prepared, but I must say I didn't read the menu carefully.

What a disappointment!! Cold food served out of foil pans, chicken parm so dry and tough we had to ask for steak knives to try to cut it. It took 10 minutes to get the steak knives! I could see the delay if it were crowded, but we were at the last seating and there was only 2 other parties... More

Just had my sister in laws baby shower there. The food was good. We had 2 waitresses and one was very rude. Gratuity is included in the price per person so I guess she knows she doesn't have to be courteous because she's gonna get her tip either way. No water pitchers at the tables. They had one all the...

They have a larger room for gatherings. It was after my Mom's funeral and my daughter, my friend and I stood for a goo 15 minutes because they didn't have enough tables set up. The food was alright, served family style. Service on that occasion was very poor but typically for a dinner they have excellent service. Their dinners are... More

We recently had a get together after the funeral Mass of our Mother. In the past, we have had family gatherings and we found the food to be consistently delicious. The servers were friendly and helpful and we wanted them to know we all noticed their hard work. Thank you! and another reason we wanted to rate Tony & Penny's... More

Went last night with my wife and two young kids and was surprised to see how nice the place was redecorated. I was also surprised how bad the majority of our food was. The kale soup and fresh bread was very good, but that was where it ended. My son ordered barbecued ribs on special. They came out as country... More

We had five in our group. The service was prompt and attentive. They have a nice selection of wines including Portuguese. I had a Monte Velho-half a bottle (split size) for $9.00. Our entrees were: pork chops, scallops, and a seafood dish. The portions are large. My seafood with rice was served in a large bowl. It included shrimp, mussels,... More

Seven of us have just returned from the restaurant. It was our third time, and the kitchen doesn't ever run fast, but this was agonizing. They brought out freshly baked bread, three kinds, which was nice, but we must have waited an hour and a half to get served. The waitress was very pleasant, and apologetic, and we understood that...
