This is great shop right across from Wollaston Beach in Quincy, MA. I usually stop here once a week for their clam strips. The clam strips are excellent!!! I have been to several other local restaurants, and have been disappointed with their clam strips.

The shrimp is the best I've ever had aside from on Dauphin Island from the fisherman who pulled it straight out of the gulf. All seafood is fresh, Yuengling on tap. Do it.

You know it's summer when the patio is open and the people are sitting and enjoying the fresh seafood at Tony's. We recently ate lunch there and the whole fried clams and scallops were excellent, very fresh and cooked perfectly. The plates came with fries and cole slaw both of which were good, The fries were done well not limp,... More

Four of us ate there tonight: we ordered clam chowder ($6.95/bowl), child's plate of fish & chips ($8), grilled tuna sandwich ($7.49) & a steak & cheese sub ($8.25). We ate outside & had a view of the Marina Bay. All the food was excellent. You order your food & pay, receive a lobster that lights up and makes a... More

This is a great little place for some fried seafood and lobster roll. The portions are huge - never seen lobster roll so filled with lobsters and the fried clam strip platter was big too. Overall it's a good place but not as tasty as some others in Boston - but good for the value.

Having been here many times, usually for the excellent fish and chips, I tried a while ago to sample the lobster roll. Oh my! They must put the whole lobster in the roll, and there is almost no filler ---just whole chunks of fresh lobster meat, mostly from large claws it seems. With a medium soda, the cost is not... More

I have to say Tony's has the best lobster roll I've ever had in my life. I had to go there few times in one weekend, not gonna deny that :) But be prepared to pay $20 for a lobster roll (totally worth it though)

A great way to usher in spring was a quick trip to Tony's Clam Shop, just across the street from the beach and a view of Boston in the backdrop. Approaching the restaurant, you could smell the food! It was tough trying to decide what to get. You counter order, and take a seat with your lobster-fob. The orders were... More

We visited Quincy/Boston in the summer and had heard/read great reviews about Tony's and decided to give it a try. The food was good but the view of the ocean from the tables outside was beautiful. Overall, it was a great experience.
