This is it! #1 for lobster roll and #1 for fried clams on the beach with Boston skyline view in Quincy. In and outdoor seating, ample parking, superb seafood.

Fast service. Fresh seafood. Fried fresh not very flavorful but was very tender. Good size pile of seafood with fries for a $40 plate enough for sharing. Serves cocktails too. Beautiful view of the bay. Outdoor tables with umbrellas and parking in back lot or...across the street on beachside. Would return.More

We went to Tony’s twice while staying in Boston for a week. Both times the food and service was excellent. Tony’s son, is now running the business and I’m sorry but I don’t recall his first name. But anyway he came to our table and...personally made sure everything was to our satisfaction. Next time I’m in Boston I will certainly visit Tony’s again.More

Met friends here on Saturday evening around 5PM. Patio was PACKED, they could maybe put more tables out back. Inside was quiet. Food took 15-25 minutes or so to come out and two orders were ready 10 minutes before other two. Lobster roll is big...and meaty for $34.95 (paper menu price was lower), lobster salad and clams were also good portions and yummy. Small soda is $2.99 for 8 ounces, kind of disappointing.More

If you are into fried food, the portions are huge. If you want steamed seafood, the portions are very small in comparison. The prices on the steamed items were high.

Visiting family in the Quincy area, we stopped into Tony's Clam Shack for dinner and were delighted by the quality. A clam roll is a regular hot dog roll stuffed with whole fried clams (and served with fries). I hadn't had one in years and...it was worth the wait. Excellent food and great service, though it was a bit of "sticker shock" to pay $25 for a clam roll. Highly recommended.More

We met family there - the staff was attentive to our needs - moving tables so that we could all be at one table inside. We had someone with a walker and they made sure our every need was met - while we were there...we noticed they were that way with everyone . The food was amazing - We had the seafood platter, scallop / clam plate , fried lobster plate , clams , oysters, and a fish and chip . We were all very please with our meals.More

Best fried shrimp ever, but has gotten too expensive for smaller portions. Still worth it, but I can't go as much.

I did a mini comparison of MA fried clams, going to Clam Box of Ipswich, JT Farnhum's in Essex, and Tony's Clam Shop in Quincy. To my taste, Tony's was the best by some distance. The other two have excellent fried clams, and I especially...liked the Clam Box batter. But when it came to the clams, Tony's (also sourced in Ipswich, per their sign) were much bigger than the others and the flavor was incredible.More

When I see the word "box" attached to a menu item I think of something that is a combo pack. $16 for a small french fry boat with 6 shrimp is hardly considered a "box". we payed $40 for lunch and honestly was not worth...it.More

Not only will you have delicious food you will be at the beach. Always fresh and cooked to order you will feel like your on a mini vacation with an ocean view. If you would like a burger or something besides seafood they have you...covered. Locals and visitors have enjoyed this great spot for many years.More

View of the beach and the ocean were excellent. Clams and the Tuna melt sandwich were very good. First time here, eating outdoors and table spacing was excellent, table and chairs were cleaned after each person left. Felt safe and enjoyed our lunch.

1st time in a very long time Seafood Platter was very good - (Pricing is comparable to others - but - perhaps a little less food than others and a lot less french fries then most - which was ok with us LOL:)) Cole Slaw...was excellent Outside dining there are few (front) ocean view tables - but - there were plenty of tables out back on the lawn which was very nice and comfortable Recommended - Enjoy !!!More

Recommend calling ahead if in a rush. The lines are pretty long during summer peak hours. Hope this was helpful.

There was a customer with a small dog on outside patio day we were there. Could have been a service dog.
