A great place for some sea food and chowder. Come hungry and you will not be disappointed. Not the least expensive place but still a good value and good food.

We stopped by one afternoon to try their famous clam chowder. It was delicious but really seemed very commercial. I know they sell it canned to the public...the bowls we had tasted canned too and not fresh.

We apologize that you didn't find the chowder outstanding. You are in a very tiny minority of diners as witnessed by over a thousand trip advisor reviews.

Went with wife and 2 boys. Service was fine, waitress pleasant. Had the chowder. It's good. Did not expect any lick...otherwise has some. Food was good. Not spectacular. A little pricey for the service and atmosphere...I think.

I'm not sure exactly what your trying to say but you used the words kick and lick and those are words that many use to describe Tony's Chowder. Thanks for the visit.

This is one place you don't want to miss. The chowder is to kill for. The atmosphere is rustic, the service is great. , ... a tad on the pricy side but worth it.. Give it a try!
