Best lobster roll!

Lobster roll was delicious and worth the price. 8 ounces of lobster on each sandwich. A must on your trip to Quincy!

As a born and raised New Englander I can truthfully say these were the best fried clams I've had. Clams were plump, cooked to perfection, and you could taste the ocean freshness in every bite. Batter was golden brown and delicious. Fries were cooked super as well. Only complaint was the cole slaw that came with the fried clam plate... More

Atmosphere is very beachy, right on the beach. The food is excellent, but the fried clams are the very best you can get anyplace.

I always thought that Quincy and Wollaston Beach were hours away from the heart of Boston - how wrong I was! On a Saturday evening, I drove here with friends and it probably took 30-40 minutes (in heavy traffic). The Tony's Clam Shop sign in front of the restaurant beckoned us upon our approach. We expected there would be problems... More

We stopped here for dinner after a long day of driving. We were thrilled to find that there was plenty of stress free parking in such a busy area. This is the type of place where you walk in and order your food at the counter then wait for your number to be called. There's both indoor and outdoor seating.... More

Great portions and very fresh. No matter if you order the fried fish, clams, scallops, or lobster rolls. Local beer available. Consistently hot/fresh fries. Tasty coleslaw.

We were looking for a place on the water to have dinner and found Tony's. Parking was almost impossible but we found a spot and took our place in the long line to order. My husband got fish and chips but I opted for the fried lobster platter. Yes it cost $21.00 but I got 5 nice size pieces which... More

A beautiful day to eat outside and see the scenery of the water and the Boston skyscrapers. Clams were tasty, but a bit pricey. Loved the lobster pagers that vibrated when the food was ready.

We rate our restaurants for what they are. This is great beach food. Cool location right on beach. Tons of options for anyone in your family. Quick service. I am sure it is much better in summer since the deck was very nice. Will definitely be returning.

Tony's is a great casual place for a quick night out! However, it gets extremely busy and there are lines of people staring you down while you're eating because they need a place to sit. I was even offered $5 to give up my table!!! And the guy behind us was asked to share his table! Everyone was extremely nice... More
