“Good, Fresh Seafood on the Pier”
Reviewed July 2, 2011

There's a reaon this place is the most crowded among the the several seafood restaurants on the Bandon waterfront. The food is fresh and and tasty, Great for a casual lunch on the waterfront. If only they had more tables! If they're too crowded, get your food to go and find a bench on the nearby pier.

“Please sir, may I have some more?”
Reviewed June 28, 2011

We had no idea what we were in for when we stumbled upon Bandon during our road trip from S.F to Vancouver.

We were pleasantly surprised by the do-it-yourself crabbing which looked like a lot of fun. Everyone at the pier was excited, even with the gloomy weather.

So we followed everyone to Tony's Shack and decided to sample a seafood platter. Wow, it was the best cooked clams we had ever! Could have eaten 3 dozens more.

We were not as big fan for the crabs, though. It tasted fine as a sandwich but the claws in the platter lacked taste and the meat was kind of too soft, IMO. It could be that the clams were super tasty and took away some of the crab's glory.

Bandon was a cute coastal town and I would definitely recommend a visit and I will be back for more Tony's seafood. : )

“Great seafood on the waterfront.”
Reviewed June 25, 2011

For being so small it packs a huge punch. I had their fish tacos, and must say they were as good as if not better than the ones I had in Mexico. There were 3 and if you go away hungry you must have a huge appetite. My husband had the dungeness crab cake meal and it was all he could to do finish it as well. And yes you can get your beer or wine with your meal. Either sit in the sun outside, or inside if you there is room, or take out. Any way its all great. The menu is not all seafood, so those who wish for something else should fine an item to their liking.

“We love Tony's Crabshack”
Reviewed February 15, 2011

Tony's Crabshack is my husband's and my favorite place to eat on the entire coast. It is our top priority in Bandon -even above the beautiful beach. The food is always delicious, superb. Plus Tony is very interesting and so is his staff. They take care of you and are so nice!!! Best food on Oregon Coast and best deal. Fresh, yummy, superb.
Highly recommend!!! We have eaten there at least 10-15 times! Always a hit!
Outstanding food and service!!!!

“Decent and average for a simple soup and sandwich meal”
Reviewed February 13, 2011

Our group dined at Tony's on Feb 12, 2011. We ordered a clam chowder and crab sandwich. The clam chowder did NOT have any clams in it, and was basically potatoes. I felt it was a bit starchy too. The crab sandwich on toasted bread, with chips saved the meal. We didn't order any of the seafood (e.g. lobster, crabs), so, unable to comment on that.
