Hadn't been to this fun well-known locale in a few years. Clean and quick service. And must order a Hot Nuts round!

Tony's is just off Court St in Athens and provides a homey, more mature option to the college student craziness around the corner. Great mix of people, friendly, full beer/liquor selection. Live jazz (free) on Tuesday nights.

This place is different from the other campus area bars in that there is a mix of locals and college students, young and old. Bartender was very nice, good selection of beers and there are cool little trinkets hung here and there. Elvis hanging on a cross was particularly sacrilegious and awesome.

College bar. Kind of hard to get a drink. Place is long and narrow. Two dart boards at the back. No food here. Just drinks. 2 for $5 shot specials. Good music. Oldies/Classic Rock.

Hot Nuts. Darts. Great music. Excellent atmosphere, except when it gets too filled up with college students. Beer more expensive than either The Skull or Jackie-O's. Great live jazz nights.

Nothing fancy here, but good place to meet friends for a drink. Crowd tends to be a little older than many of the others in town. Tony, owner, is the best!

This is the perfect place to relax and have a drink without all the craziness of the college bars. Friendly staff and an awesome signature drink

Tony's was one of my favorite hangouts when I lived in town a decade ago, and it's one that my wife and I still love to visit when we come back. Tony's has a comfortable student to townie ratio that, for some reason, doesn't seem to work most places. Tony's Hot Nuts are legenday. Essentially, it's a shot of hot... More
