We called ahead for take out with a specific time since we were en route to Logan. As we pulled up, exactly on time, the meal was being packed up at the counter. Lunch was delicious. The only thing I did not understand was the lobster rolls were ordered with butter and the butter came on the side. But the... More

We are visiting Boston for six weeks routing for the Soxs & eating seafood. Now in week five and we have tried it all. TONYs gets our top rating, Five Spoons, for its Fresh & Flavorable selections. We shared a seafood platter of fried clams, scallops, fish and shrimp. It was pretty damm good! So good that we tanked off... More

Tony's has great food and a great view. We had the clams and they were very good. A little pricey but worth the trip if your visiting Quincy.

Tony's hands down has the best Fried Clams and Lobster Roll in the Boston area. Some say they are a bit pricey but I say you get what you pay for. Nothing better on a sunny day than tailgating on Wollaston Beach with a Clam Basket from Tony's.

I've been coming here for years live right in the area. Don't forget to grab some clam chowder. When ordering clams get the whole bellies the necks are a waste of money the onion rings are delicious. Enjoy..Please

...But if I did, I would go to the Clam Box. I've often had their french fries and onion rings in the past, and they were always good. Friends enjoy meals from there, so I would say stop by, grab some grub, sit on the wall and eat, and watch the people go by.

Get the broiled seafood platter, it's fantastic, a side order of shrimp cocktail too. We went after visiting a mall nearby and rather than drive straight back to Boston, thought e would stop along the coast. The food is excellent, very tasty and plentiful. I didn't think it was expensive either.

We went because it was well rated on Trip advisor and we were not disappointed. The portions are huge.There are outdoor tables right across the street from the public beach.Awesome fried clams and sweet potato fries.

We just moved to the South Shore, and there are so many sea food shops and shacks to choose from. In Quincy the competition is fierce, the prices are consistent, but you will not be disappointed with the flavors. Tony's has everything you could want, and living just blocks away should have been part of the asking price for the... More
