If you plan to visit Cedar Key, a visit to Tony’s should be at the top of your list to sample the fabulous Chowder. Thick with clams and potatoes, I’ll agree with many of the former reviews that it’s the best Clam Chowder I’ve had by far. We’ve tried other dishes or salads at Tony’s during earlier visits and found them to be very good but the Chowder is not to be missed.
The Chowder alone is worth the trip out to the Key!
The restaurant is located on a corner lot in a frame building that looks like it was constructed early in the last century. Don’t let the appearance put you off. It’s not fancy but does have a feeling of authenticity.
We found the service to be just fine. The dining room was full when we arrived but we were seated promptly (although it looked like a queue was forming as we left).
This time we purchased a couple of quarts to take back home. Although it was pricey (as mentioned in earlier reviews), we won’t complain about the expense as a tasty treat waits in the near future.
