The seafood platter for one was plenty for two. Mostly fried except for the Cedar Key clams which were melt in your mouth

Best seafood we had in Cedar Key. Very efficient service. Chowder worth going for. Beer served in iced mugs...great on a hot day. Only drawback was no beer on draft.

My wife loves clam chowder! And this was the best clam chowder she has ever tasted. Tony's even has it canned for home enjoyment. And, yes, we brought some home! Great shrimp and other seafood as well. Not long hours so go early!

Tony's Seafood Restaurant has fresh seafood on its menu. They claim to be famous for their clam chowder which they actually also sell canned. The service was nice but not over-ambitious. The atmosphere somewhat typical for the south consisted of simple furniture like turned stools...More

Never heard of that salad. Didn't look for it on the menu. You may want to go online and see if their menu is listed, or, give them a call. Sorry, wish I had more info.
