“People watching at it's best!”
Reviewed January 19, 2012

Tony's Bar is a total dive. But not always in a bad way. This is usually the spot we start at on a night out because of its south- side- of -old -town location and the cheap drinks. There is much people watching to be had here. You may see anything from stumbling old locals ogling stumbling young girls to frat guys being thrown out by security for being unruly. Do go with a group of friends. Don't go alone looking to make friends.

Atmosphere: When entering the bar downstairs you may notice the aroma of urine and vomit. It is very dark and the floor is dirty - speckled with old gum. There is music blasting from the touch-tunes jukebox and the bar is lined with unsavory older men. If you make it to the upstairs, it's a little more uplifting. The rooftop patio bar is covered and well heated. It has ample seating around the bar and plenty of high top tables where the smokers tend to congregate.

Service: The service is average and you're ordering will done at the bars, unless seated at one of the high top tables on the patio.

Drinks: You will find an average selection of beers on tap with your local breweries, featured in front of a few imports and domestics. They have a slushy machine on hand that is a dangerous concoction of vodka and Monster energy drink.

“Great Bar...Great drinks!!”
Reviewed January 9, 2012

I am a 40 yr old lady who has been going to Tonys on and off for 20 years! I am very professional and so is my boyfriend. We have always had a wonderful experience at this bar. The bartenders both up and down are wonderful, they know most of the customers by name. They have the best drink specials EVER!! It is NOT a Ghetto bar nor is it full of trash! Both the upstairs and downstairs have been newly renovated...its beautiful. You should not listen to all the other reviews!

“Tip Fraud”
Reviewed January 6, 2011

On New Years Eve my girlfriend was my dd and bought me 1 shot. She kept her receipt. The shot was $6 and she tipped $1. After looking at her account the bartender added an $80 tip. It took 7 days and a huge hassle to correct it and the explanation was that the bartender thought the $ sign looked like an 8 assuming people normally tip $80
