I used to spend time at Wollaston Beach in Quincy as a teenager way back in the 1970s, and often got take-out from the various nearby seafood vendors. My brother still lives in the area and took us to Tony's Clam Shop for my favorite...More

Great little seafood restaurant. Had the scallop dinner. The dinner came out in a timely manner and was very tasty. The scallops were plentiful and were cooked perfectly. Highly recommend you check this spot out.

To expensive for what you get on your plate. And the food wasn't that great. The service wasn't the best either, but i'll assume the crowd was a bit much for the young lady.

After touring historical sites we enjoyed a very nice meal at Tony's. We sought this restaurant because it had been recommended. We were pleased and I pass along accolades for the quality of the food.

We sat outside overlooking the beach and had a great meal of fried clams and oysters. The breading was light and crisply fried. They even had prosecco! Best of all, it's within walking distance of my daughter's house which makes it my new go-to place...More
