Love the Lobster Roll

Love going to Tony's in the summer, Best Lobster Roll without driving to Maine. A little expensive for a Clam Shack in Quincy, but it's right on the beach.

I know Tony's is an iconic landmark & seafood restaurant in Quincy, BUT.... time to can the greek offerings, and stick to what they know best! The falafel plate tasted like it was made weeks ago, and frozen, the hummus was boring and bland. The chicken Kabob was the better choice, although a bit dry, but was seasoned well...Not sure...

We can't wait for April for Tony's to reopen. Food is always fresh, bountiful and presented in appetizing manner. Once you have started eating, your tastebuds immediately know you are eating some of the best seafood on the east coast.

Tony's has been at Wollaston Beach some 30-odd years, ever since I was a teenager! There was no better to go in the summer for great food and ice cream!!! A family owned business, I can't say enough about the people! They are friendly, professional, and just all around great!

The two best clam stops I know of in the world. Only open until Nov. 1, I think, grab some good seafood to go and see the ocean.

It is easy to understand why Tony’s Clam Shack in Quincy it so popular. They offer an extensive menu of seafood favorites. Ordering is done at the counter and then they buzz you when your food is ready to be picked up. There is ample indoor seating and a large deck with additional tables. Tony’s is right on Quincy Shore... More

I visited some friends in Quincy and was craving seafood so we ended up here at Tony's Clam Shop. It was my last day and it was exactly what I was looking for! The location was perfect, right along the coast I wasn't that hungry but decided eh, I live in the Midwest so might as well make it worth... More

We try to go here a few times over the summer season.....It is always a good experience a little pricey but worth it! my fave is the scallop roll and onion rings are awesome! Right on Wollaston beach you can eat inside in great airconditioning or out side with the ocean breeze either way is a win win!!!!!!!

We went here while in town for a wedding with some friends that used to live in the neighborhood. This is a long standing local fixture in the tradition of large amounts of mostly fried seafood. It was all great. The fried clams, fish, and everything that went along with this was first rate. It was a nice evening and... More

I'm from north of Boston, the North Shore, and have never thought any restaurant could equal Farnham's in Essex for fried clams and other seafood.
