Best clam chowder ever, was worth the boring drive through central Florida to get here. Sat down immediately and served within 10 minutes or less.

We are first time visitors to the area and had heard all about this restaurant and their award winning clam chowder. We arrived at 7:15. Waited approximately 15 minutes to be seated, although we could see open tables. Once seated it took 10 minutes to be greeted by our server, who promptly informed us the "new girl" had given us...

The food at this place is awesome and the Clam chowder best I've ever eaten. But I didn't give it 5 stars cause the waitress was awful. Didn't get our drinks for 15 to 20 minutes. Then forgot to give us our salads gave them to someone that came in after us. Would ask for extra ranch and she forgot... More

When we saw the signs claiming Tony's chowder was a three time world champion, we were a bit skeptical and a bit surprised, since we were not familiar with the high-stakes world of clam chowder cooking! So we decided to figure it out for ourselves and ordered a bowl. Wow - this clam chowder was excellent!! Definitely a must if... More

We were sat right away but it took forever to get our food (about 40 minutes.) While the chowder was good, the food was overpriced for what we got. On the plus side it is a quaint, quiet spot to get dinner.

The reviews are accurate - really some of the best clam chowder we've eaten, and we've had a lot. I also enjoyed the steam clams, which are hard to find. They make a lot of things in house, such as the tartar sauce, and we could tell the fries were hand cut. We'll go again the next time we're in... More

I was really taken with this restaurant. My hubby was quite so happy as seafood but they did have a burger! I felt truly looked after here, the waitress was exceptional. The food was great, well presented and very tasty. They didn't just pile it up as they tend to do but it was "looked after food'. I felt the... More
