Just stoped for a light dinner with my spouse the other day, it had been a long time since we last visited. Boy have things changed, and not for the better! New pizza sauce on steak sandwich, onion rings out of a bag, same with french fries! They still give you plenty to eat, but the reason to go to... More

Big portions, good food, great value. The food here is consistently good. Be prepared to share a meal and still have leftovers! They're known for their steak sandwich and fries with gravy.

Have been going to Tony's Restaurants for years and every time I go there, I know that the food is going to be plentiful, good, and served by friendly staff. I love the Tony Sandwiches with extra sauce - but I also love to go for breakfast as the toast is great Italian bread made by the bakery next door... More

I frequent this restaurant a few times a month. It is well-liked by us "locals" and has great food. One of the best breakfasts in town.

Love the steak sandwich. Get it grilled with cheese and an order of onion rings. Fast service. If there's room for dessert, get the banana split. They also have great breakfast.

There are 4 Tony's restaurants in the immediate Saginaw, MI area. 3 are acceptable. This one on State St., near the corner of Bay Rd. & State St., falls far short. Let's start with cleanliness - it isn't! We sat in a booth with a shelf behind it with a thick layer of dust and a dead fly on it.... More

The "steak" sandwich is really more like a burger on really good bread. Be sure to get the pizza sauce & cheese + mushrooms. Also try the deep fried cauliflower - very tasty

The food at this location is still tasty, but the waitstaff/kitchen has become very disorganized. Food comes out a different times, mixed up orders, running out of food. A recent takeout order of two burgers and a small nacho took almost 60 minutes, 40 of which were spent in the store repeating my order three times and the kitchen burning... More

This is the home of Tony's Steak Sandwich, and the piles of bacon breakfast! Prices have crept up over the last few years but it is still a value for the quality and quantity of food. So if you have a craving for old school diner style food this is a great stop, oh and don't forget their Sundae or... More
