Tony’s clam box makes a great Caesar salad but if you like fried clams, you will love the Fried Clams at Tony’s. The batter is delicious as the clam has a super taste and cooked to perfection. Found them to cost a few dollars more...More

I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Tony’s I love a nice clam, I particularly like bearded clams however Tony had run out, despite this I had a great time, I find that a evening out is always complete when finished with a salty clam. Cheers...More

Every time we get off the plane from Seattle, we head straight to the nearest place open for a lobster roll. This time, we were headed to Maine so we stopped in Quincy at Tony's. Exactly what we wanted...no frills and DELISH! Highly recommend!

The clams here really are as fresh as you can get! Even better than a lot of places on Cape Cod. Plus the view on a Summer night across Wollaston Beach towards the Boston skyline is unbeatable!

Read about the awesome lobster roll, but having had one at Quincy Market earlier in the day, we thought we'd have something else. My spouse ordered the Fried Lobster Plate and I picked the Crab-cake Plate. Plates are served with nicely crisp fries and coleslaw....More

We had belly clams, fried shrimp, french fries, and onion rings. All cooked perfectly with large serving sizes, but the cost was very expensive. If you want to splurge on great fried foods, this is the place to go!

I've been going to Tony's for 30+ years. My usual was fried oysters, always the best. We moved hours away eight years ago but visit whenever back in the area, usually 5-6 times per year. Now, I usually get the seafood platter and kids get...More

My colleague had the lobster sandwich and was amazed at how much lobster it was filled with and how fresh. I myself had the scallops and I have never tasted anything that tasted so fresh. Right on the harbor family friendly but its the food!!!

Fresh and yummy lobster rolls to die for and whole belly clams with tarter were delicious too! People say pricey - I say you get what you pay for!

Recommend calling ahead if in a rush. The lines are pretty long during summer peak hours. Hope this was helpful.

There was a customer with a small dog on outside patio day we were there. Could have been a service dog.
