Was good for a quick lunch stop. Husband had the famous Tony's crab sandwich and I had the pulled pork. Both were ok. Sat outside watched the traffic and people pass by. Nice little spot, decent lunch.

Tony's has never disappointed me. Girlfriend had fresh whole crab dinner, I had a fish taco and we split an order of crabcakes. Everything was fast, hot and fresh. Pricey? Yeah, but you are in a tourist town, so that is expected. I don't mind...More

Food is so good and worth the wait! Everything I've had here is outstanding! We go crabbing here on occasion and they will cook your crabs up right there for you, so awesome!

I chose the famous Bandon Crab sandwich which was at best okay. I'm not sure what makes it "famous" but I wouldn't order it again.

Informal venue with amazing fresh seafood. The lunch special I enjoyed was a bowl of clam chowder (incredible!), salad (fresh and clearly not out of a bag) and fresh bread for a very reasonable price. They also serve beer and wine. Indoor and outdoor seating...More

Ordered the lunch special, clam chowder, green salad and ciabatta roll. The salad was very fresh with a nice mix of greens, bread was toasted and lightly buttered; clam chowder was so-so, not much taste, thickened with corn starch or the like. A very small...More

There are always people on the pier catching their own crabs, Tony's will cook them for you if you bring the crabs to them.

The bay is not the main view here... The view is the street that takes ya to the south Jetty. Foot traffic to and from business in the area. NOT MUCH TO SEE other than people when this area is busy. Quiet otherwise.
