Pricey, but worth it!

What trip to New England is complete without a lobster roll? Tony's provided that in a casual atmosphere, but once the roll arrived, who could even be concerned with atmosphere. The lobster overflowed the roll with no filler discernible! This was claw meat at its best!

We have not been to Tony's in a while, mainly because of the cost of seafood. It is our favorite of the two clam places along the beach. The cost of lobster is down, so hopefully we can stop in again soon.

My brother recommended that we try this place....what a great idea. We both had a Lobster Roll, with lobster falling out of the bun. Meaty, wonderful taste. Excellent. We split an order of Fried Clams and an order of Fried Scallops (although I ate most of these). The clams were good. The scallops, extra large, lots of flavor, lightly battered.... More

We went to their Wollaston Beach location. You order and pay inside, then you try to nail a table and wait for your beeper to go off. There is seating inside and out, but if the weather cooperates the outside, across the street from the ocean, is really nice. As for the food, fried clams and the lobster roll seem... More

Shared an early dinner with the daughter on a sunny Sunday recently. The fried whole claims were a first for us...should have gotten the clam strips. Personal preference only, the wholes were well -prepared. The star of the meal for me was the homemade onion rings. Light crunchy batter surrounding a sweet onion. I tasted more onion than batter. Next... More

Fantastic lobster rolls with tons of lobster. Excellent clam rolls. Onion rolls a bit tasteless. Excellent fries. Went on a Friday 90 degree night. Arrived at 5:30. Easy parking in back. Waited about 10 mins for food. A definite must for lobster and clam rolls

Yes, if you are a native of Boston, you may be thinking, "Why would you do that to a Lobster." I had fried lobster in New Hampshire about 20 years ago & was searching for another place in the Boston area. Tony's Clam Shop is a great place for lunch when you are searching for a family-like atmosphere. Tony's is... More

Update for April 2013. Good as ever. Hard to beat their clam strip baskets or meals. Every now and then you must indulge.

While in Quincy last week my wife wanted a local seafood meal so I found Tony's Clam Shop which is across the road from the Atlantic Ocean. We were there on a rainy, windy, cold night so we did not get the full benefit of the ocean views but the food was well worth the trip. You order at the... More
