I was visiting a friend in Quincy and decided to go out for seafood. Both dinners were good (clam plate, seafood platter). Nice portions. My only complaints was the fish was a little over cooked and greasy. Beautiful night to eat outside facing the ocean....More

I love places like this. This is the type of place that every town has. Its a staple, or a must go to place when visiting. Tony's is a busy, busy place along Quincy Shore Drive. Packed with customers but the line keeps moving fast....More

Good spot for summertime favorites, plus beer, wine, liquor. On a nice day, place will be full (a good sign!), but the line tends to movie quickly. Restaurant appears clean, well-managed, and organized. Our wait time was very reasonable, considering how busy it was. Staff...More

Came here in a whim based on Yelp reviews. It's a super cute carry-out/dine-in type of shop on the water. The menu can be very intimidating overall but I'm glad we knew what to order going in based on yelp. They serve alcoholic drinks too....More

I went to Tony's for the first time in May 2018. Luckily we got there before the lunch crowd - even on a cold day, he was packing them in! I had the fried clam platter - it was very good, with just enough clams...More

Decided we wanted seafood and what better than eating outside looking at the water. Great outside seating, cutest buzzer to let you know your food is ready! Both the crabcake sandwich and fried shrimp were made to perfection.

I have been going to Tony's since the 1990s and I can't say enough good things about it. Always a fantastic clam roll. Get whole clams not clam strips - those are for wimps, or worse, Yankee fans.

I don't even like seafood and I can recommend Tony's. Clams like buttah, friends enjoyed a variety of dishes, and the chicken's pretty good, too. The portions are very large, so you might consider sharing an entree.
