    I have been going to this restaurant since I was a small boy, so that's about 51 years and I must say I love it every time I go. The food,atmosphere the courteous staff make it all enjoyable.

    Tony's has the best hushpuppies! Been coming here for years. A wonderful place to eat and enjoy the waterfront. Check out the new bar!

    We ate there off season. The staff was friendly and helpful. There is plenty of seating facing the water. Would be beautiful during the summer.

    Be careful in the half booth, half chair tables. The table legs are in an awkward spot and you are very viable to bang your knees on them more than just once.

    My favorite go to restaurant when I'm here. Love the Flounder Del Ray (flounder stuffed with crab meat) and hushpuppies.

    Try the seared tuna salad, it's light, tasty, and filling.

    Popular with tourists and when there is a line, it moves quickly. Worth any wait. Its right over the water front and boaters can tie up outside. Open from Feb to Nov.

    If your a vegetarian don't go with family and expect to get anything but seafood or repeat. When you ask for a grilled cheese they throw a fit because it is on the children's menu !

    Sabrina is a fantastic server. Sit in her section. We were lucky to get her 2 days in a row.

    The fish was fresh, and as everyone else said the hushpuppies were good. Overall I would recommend

    History and tradition is really what this place has going for it. It's been here forever. The food is ok and VERY over priced. Wait is far too long. Great for large groups

    She-Crab soup. Get it. Then thank yourself for making a superb decision.

    She-crab soup was great as was the scallops linguini! But they were out of oysters ;(
  • Millbrook Masonic Lodge #97
    This place had pretty good seafood, but don't get the fried blue crab sandwich - it's all bun, no crab... and not worth the $12.

    Food mediocre at best. She crab soup was very good, however. If you sit outside, prepare to be attacked by seagulls or perhaps pooped on. Just don't feed them.

    Be patient once they seat you. Seems to take a while to assign a server. Really great lunch prices!

    Favorite place for fresh seafood & wonderful hushpuppies. Right on the waterfront with a dock for boats & limited outside seating! Check out DeeGee's bookstore across the street after your meal.

    Dinner is the pits. Fish cooked wrong, dry outside, raw center. Frozen off truck, not fresh catches off local boats... Servers are rude to boot.

    When these people say 5 minutes it really means forever & there are at least 6 empty tables. Management should all be fired for this outrage.
