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.

Chowder is wonderful, we took some home. We ate there for lunch and the fish was so good and so fresh we came back at dinner time. Great food!

“Chowder hit the mark”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

We arrived early for lunch per the suggestion of the website and got a great window seat (there are few). It fills quickly, as is a small dining room. My husband and I only ordered chowder and salad, but were duly impressed. Fresh, crisp salad with a wide variety of veggies, a delicious house-made vinaigrette and of course da bombs chowder and ubiquitous crackers. Perfect, fast, and delicous.

“Awsome food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

Our waitress was on her 3rd day so the service was slow but pleasant. The chowder as usual was vantastic. The fish sandwich fresh hot and yummy. Get the shrimp cocktail for an appetizer! I like mine cold my brother got his hot they were both to perfection. We'll be back add we are 2 or 3 times a year. And our first stop is always Tonys!!
