Lots of places claim to have the best New England Clam Chowder, but Tony's really does. My husband won't eat clam chowder...until I made him taste theirs...he ate 1/2 my bowl! You can buy cans to take with you, as well as order it by the case for home delivery. We brought home some cans, and I plan to order... More

Two adults and two teens, we waited about 10 minutes. Between us we ordered the chowder, fried clams and oysters. The chowder and clams were terrific! Oysters fresh, but I personally preferred the clams. Our waitress Soleria? Was very busy. No problem. May go back tomorrow- Saturday, but likely a longer wait.

Tony's is known for its award-winning clam chowder, and it is well-deserved. It is excellent! We bought some cans of the condensed chowder to take home with us. We were served quickly and enjoyed our chowder and salad with house dressing.

We walked in just after sunset and they were closing at 8:00 pm on a Friday night. Glad they squeezed us in as it was excellent. The clam chowder was as good as advertised, and the seafood platter for two was amazing. Staff seemed a little overworked and stressed out.

We stopped here for a quick bite to eat before going down to the pier. Food was delicious and the service was great. Would definitely eat here again. We took advantage of the great weather and ate out on the patio.

We drove 1 1/2 hour to have lunch there. The wait out side was about 15 minutes. We ate in the rear dining room. Our order was taken and our salad and there award winning clam chowder was brought. All was great. The problem was our main course took another 1/2 hour to arrive! I had Tony's Cajun Creole which... More

You can't look at a flat surface in this small dining room without reading about their award winning clam chowder that I did not try. I ate a cajun seafood dish with a spicy tomato sauce base on a bed of rice. It had a grilled slice of fish and scallops and shrimp, and it was fantastic! The seafood was... More

We stopped in for lunch and all we had was the clam chowder. The sign says the best and they are right! I thought I had had good clam chowder but none was better than this. We bought a case to take home with us. A must try.
