Friendliest people you ever want to meet! We stopped by before they were open for day. My husband wanted to try Dungeness crab but didn't have enough time to wait for restaurant to open. They said no problem..... Staff packed us each a Dungeness crab....cleaned it and all... Iced it down for us and we were on our way! Great... More

This is a funky little place right on the bay. Their chowder was very good and we also had their fish tacos. The tacos needed a little doctoring up with their sauce and a little chile Tabasco sauce, but ended up very good. Reasonably priced.

The clam chowder is some of the best I have tasted. We had the clam chowder and the fish tacos. We didn't really enjoy the fish tacos. They were OK, but I've much better. The seating is cramped inside and out. Service is fast.

The chowder was good - but not my type of place. We had crab Sandwich( ehh ) chowder and crab - I don't think we would come back even without kiddos

If you don't visit Tony's Crab Shack when you visit Bandon, you've missed the boat. The food is outstanding, the staff work their tails off.. The food is grilled, not submerged in hot oils. The best part is the sea food is fresh, not in tubs.. Yes it's limited in seating, but the wait is well worth it. The view... More

I'm not a seafood lover, so had a burger. It was good. Order at the counter and they deliver to the table. This is a busy spot, so be prepared to wait some. Outside seating also available.

We had dinner at Tony's during our stay in Bandon. Like many of the local restaurants, the indoor seating area is quite small, but we managed to get a table. The woman at the counter was very friendly, even telling me I could have an iced tea refill and didn't need to wait in line for it. My daughter and... More

Tony's is always busy- so be prepared to wait unless you are lucky on your timing. We have only eaten there for lunch- but for the week we spent in Bandon, we ate there 4 times- so that should tell you that we enjoyed our meals. The fish tacos are a good choice, as are the crab cakes, but our... More

If you want local flavor at the dock this is a good choice. I've read the reviews, but personally I didn't walk away feeling that this place would be my "go to" establishment. I have had better and worse. A good place for lunch, but wouldn't recommend it for an evening out for dinner. They close early. As for the... More

Always fresh, and always tasty, Tony's Crab Shack has become our go-to place in Bandon for a (relatively) fast, casual seafood meal. The oysters grilled with garlic and butter on the half-shell stole the show in two visits over last weekend, but my wife and I also enjoyed the fish tacos, crab cakes, and crab & shrimp cocktails. It might... More
