It was our first visit as a couple, although I was there some 25 years ago. We loved our large fish fry dinner and very good cold draft beer. Although it isn't in the greatest neighborhood, the atmosphere and service put us both at ease, and it was casual, but romantic. We will definitely return !

A friend and I were headed to a movie at the arts center across the street, so we were in a bit of a hurry. It took awhile for our server to get our order. Once we did, we were fine. We both ordered Reuben sandwiches and beer, plus an extra helping of french fries. The sandwiches were a good... More

We luckily got into Tiny's after trying a few times when they were closed. We ordered a couple plates of steamed clams and everyone at the table loved them. It was hard deciding what to order, but I got the fish fry. It was one of the best fish fries I've ever had. The slaw was very good. One of... More

I hadn't been in a long time, the dining room was much cleaner than the last time i was there. I had a salad, some of the lettuce was old / mushy, but they did make the effort to offer a mixed greens variety (not just boring iceberg). Friends had clams special and they enjoyed the clams. Burgers looked really... More

My mother and grandmother use to bring me to Tiny's for Friday fish fries back in the 70's. I fondly remember how much fun it was walking to, and eating in the small bar (prior to their expansion). Fast forward over forty years and OMG they still make the best fish fry!!!Our server, Naomi was attentive and spot on with... More
