As soon as you sit down, you know you are for a treat. They asked us if we would like to start with their clam chowder. Since that is their specialty and has won three awards, we said yes. It was indeed the best clam chowder I have ever had. It was creamy, loaded with clams and just the right... More

We stopped in for a cup of the award winning clam chowder. It was delicious and worthy of all the awards but we also ordered fried shrimp which should also have won just as many awards. They were huge fresh lightly battered and perfect in every way

We eat here at least once on every trip and it is still the best on the Island. Clam Chowder cannot be equaled and the dinner specials are excellent. Brought someone this year who had never had chowder at all and she loved it. We ate here on New Years Eve and were concerned about a wait, but they seated... More

This was our first visit to Cedar Key and we decided to try "the Best" restaurant in town. When we arrived there was no host outside so we opened the door - I guess you don't do that since the sign outside says "wait to be seated". After being asked "how can i help you" we told them we wanted... More

This place really has amazing chowder. I'm from right outside of Boston (south). We know our chowdah. Would highly recommend eating here. The fried oysters were very good too. Hush puppies were delish.

Four of us went to Tony's Seafood. My husband and I have passed it many times before but never stopped in to eat. It's a quaint little place with no atmosphere but the food and friendliness makes up for it. I had the garden salad with grilled shrimp and it was way too much so we shared. My husband had... More

In a town with almost nothing to do (which is the best reason to go there), this restaurant is a must-see. I never dreamed I'd want to try clam chowder and always thought it sounded rather unappealing, but believe me, order it. There's a reason they sell it all across the world online. Depending on when you visit Cedar Key,... More

Hubbie and I ate at Tony's after church. This was our second time to eat here but the first time we have ate inside. The exhaust system must not be strong enough so we both left there smelling greasy and smoky. Won't make that mistake again, no matter how good the chowder is. If you try Tony's make sure you...
