I have been avoiding fried food for a while, but When you get the craving you just have to have it. This is the place to fulfill the craving. The best whole belly fried clams, crispy and delicious. Awesome clam chowder, onion rings and fries....More

I don’t usually go south of Boston but since I was, I thought I would try Tony’s. I went on a Tuesday afternoon and there was plenty of parking. The counter service was fine. It is market/beach price. I got the basket of belly clams...More

We went for lunch at Tony's on a beautiful Sunday, and the location was perfect, just across from the beach. Parking can be challenging as they have a small lot. We ordered the fried whole clam plates, and were amazed at the size and portion...More

Been visiting Tony’s Clam Shop for years. Always good. Always fresh. The fried clams with bellies, lobster rolls, fries scallops and tartar sauce are the Best. Tony’s is just seasonal so we try to go every chance we can. Be back real soon.

Probably the best in the area. Expensive but worth it. Nice menu, great staff, counter service with pager pickup. Easy parking, easy seating, nice view of Boston across the street. Worth the visit.

Tony's is a New England style clam shack, bigger than many. There was a reasonable amount of seating both inside and out. The menu was pretty extensive for a clam shack, but I went for the whole belly clams. My wife went for the clam...More

Instead of queuing at Yankee downtown, I decided to come over here. Much better place, less crowded and overseeing the North Atlantic Ocean for sunset ? That’s much better and nice. Food wise portion is rather small, a bit pricey but taste great. $25 for...More

There was a customer with a small dog on outside patio day we were there. Could have been a service dog.
