The service staff were efficient and pleasant. The food was excellent and the highly touted Clam Chowder was better than advertised. Ver ghood meal.

“Fun Time in Downtown Cedar Key”
Reviewed August 19, 2014 via mobile

We visited Tony's after having watched a food network special about the award winning clam chowder served at this little cafe in the heart of Cedar Key. Our group consisted of two families with 4 children between us and everyone was able to find something they enjoyed on the menu-even the finicky ones! Some tried clam chowder for the first time and even those of us who love chowder were blown away by the fresh taste of the creamy clam chowder served by the cup or by the bowl. It is full of potato and clam chunks and tastes like the clams were plucked from the ocean today! The fresh white fish sandwiches were enormous and again tastes like they might have been harvested the same day. Our family experience T the restaurant was every bit as delightful as we thought it would be and the food was even better than we imagined!

“Great Chowder”
Reviewed August 19, 2014 via mobile

After eating the chowder here, I can see why they are "World Champions". When I go back, I'm going to get a bigger bowl! Everything else we had was decent, but the chowder was the king. The restaurant was small, but nice. Waite staff were friendly. Prices seemed a little high though.

“Loved the chowder”
Reviewed August 18, 2014

The chowder was excellent, and I am not a huge chowder fan. Lots of flavor. We both ordered shrimp dishes and were very pleasantly surprised. Don't expect anything fancy. Very low key. We will definitely be back!

“Chowder Chowder Chowder”
Reviewed August 14, 2014

The best Chowder ever! Service was ok, but the food is great! A great place for lunch or even dinner with the view from their windows. Soft Shell Crab sandwich is amazing when they are in season, but Chowder is king here.
