Description: Welcome to Tony's in the beautiful island community of Cedar Key. We are located in the Hale Building (circa 1880) in the downtown historical district across the street from the historical museum at 2nd Street and SR 24. Tony's is noted for our 3 time World Champion Clam Chowder and our fresh seafoods. We are a small 54 seat restaurant and very popular. During peak times (1-3pm) and (7-8pm) there maybe a wait for a table. We provide covered bench seating right outside the front entry. Please be patient if all tables are taken. Our wait staff is great at getting everyone in, especially those that are patient. Our inside front dining area has no waiting area, so please allow us to visit you outside the front covered area when your table is ready. At Tony's our policy is total customer satisfaction. If there is anything about your dining experience that is not acceptable, please inform your server right away and our Management staff will do whatever it takes to make sure you are completely satisfied with your dining experience. We love compliments from our diners and always encourage them to contact us. Thank you for making Tony's Seafood Restaurant Cedar Key's favorite for nearly 8 years.

“Great for Seafood lovers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2013

I'm not a big seafood lover, but even I thought th clam chowder was the best.

The fried clams were lightly breaded and tender. I had a hamburger and ended up raiding my partners plate.

“Clam chowder you won't soon forget.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

We had the clam chowder in a bread bowl, which came with a choice of shrimp, oysters, or fish.
Our party tried all the choices and were not disappointed. Salad served with our meal was
fresh and plentiful. Attentive server kept drinks refilled. Excellent meal!

“World Champion Clam Chowder”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

Tony won the World Championship for his clam chowder three times and then retired his recipe to the Clam Chowder Hall of Fame. You have to try it. You won't be disappointed. Great dinner menu.

“Very good.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

We grabbed a quart to go. This is darn good chowder. I wasn't a big chowder fan but I am now. I'm glad some grocers are starting to stock it.
