“Nice little historic seafood place, good food.”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

If you like romantic, hole in the wall type places try it. The decor is plain ,little tables and chairs, nothing fancy but interesting nonetheless. A little expensive for the small amount of food you get , I thought ,but it is fresh and good. And the clam chowder, AWESOME!!!

Thanks for the visit and the great review. Yes, we are located in the Historic Hale Building circa 1880. A bit rustic, somewhat simple, but nevertheless the home of the 3 time World Champion Clam Chowder. I appreciate your taking the time to tell Trip Advisor followers you enjoyed your experience. Please return again soon.

“Best clam chowder I have tasted...”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

A very small, but wondeful restaurant. We have eaten here for years, and although the fried seafood is great, we really can not pass up the clam chowder. Don't miss this if you are in the area!

“There's a reason the were voted the best”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

A 3 time winner of the the world's best clam chowder is not joke. It is the best! And the rest of the menu is just as good. Staff has always been helpful. Been coming to Tony's for several years and never disappointed. You can't miss it as you come into Cedar Key on highway 24, it's on the corner as you come into town. Don't miss this place!

Thank you so very much for this great review. Yes, indeed there is a reason we were voted the best. Many folks don't realize that the Great Chowder Cook-off is judged by the people. All 15,000
attendee's get to vote for the best. We are honored to be judged three straight years by mostly New Englanders as the best chowder and each year by a landslide. Your review is right on target.
Thanks for the visit. Please join us again soon.

“Good salads!”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

I know it sounds ridiculous to rate a seafood restaurant on its salad, but I am a vegetarian and didn't eat their seafood. I went for take-out salad and it was great.

“Great experience”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

The chowder was delicious as promised. Was not crowded when we went, but soon filled up, Visit was about 145p, server Sue was prompt, and food was delivered in a timely manner, and she came back to check on us even as busy as it got. Happy with visit, and will definately return and recommend it to others!
