-Huge lobster roll big as my head, but oddly sour (vinegar?) -Totally unseasoned bland chowder -Unseasoned onion rings -Clams were also under seasoned but fresh and well cooked On the scale of 1 being awful and 10 being the perfect clam shack, this is at best a 5

Stopped here around 5:30 - 6:00 on a weekday night. Saw the Trip Advisor reviews and had already parked on the beach within sight of the shop. Thought about eating outside since the weather was great but decided against it because of the very strong smell from the beach at low tide. Also the traffic was heavy at that time... More

I guess Wallaston Beach is in Quincy. The restaurant slip does not mention Quincy. If you drive a bit fast, you will miss the narrow well hidden driveway, and will have to turn around about half miles up. So, when you see the Clam Box, slow down. The driveway for Tony's is a few feet away. We had fried clams,... More

The food was very good. We ate outside with a beautiful view of wallaston beach in Quincy. There was a great selection of seafood and u could get a burger if you wanted. They also serve beer and wine

It was good. Took way to long to get our food. Cole Slaw was way to watery, I like cole slaw that isnt soaking in dressing. As for the clams they were good but I have had better At the Clam Box in Ipswich, MA. Bellies were average size and I prefer bigger ones. But some people might LOVE this... More

This little place came highly recommended and it didn't disappoint. The fried clams were great and the french fries were not an after-thought. Its location - with a view of the bay, and even the skyline of Boston - was a nice extra. I'd definitely return when I am in the area.

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 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.
