Went in for a late breakfast on Saturday around noon they were not very crowded. Server took 10 minutes to come back and take my order after delivering water. Ordered breakfast eggs and toast 25 minutes to get the food? Hash browns were cold and cooked on one side as well as being underdone especially for how long it took!... More

We went there for breakfast and the servings were quite large and delicious! They were quite busy that morning so the service was a little slow. It could use a little up dating, the menus were worn out and dirty and the table needed some leveling. But, the food was good.

This is still my favorite Tony's on the Great Lakes Bay region. The servers are friendly and the portions are reasonable. We love breakfast for other meals and our omelettes and sour dough toast were delicious! They had just the right amount of filling. Highly recommend.

This place is a great place for a good variety of food. The breakfast is excellent, the portions are huge and the prices are good. Usually a pretty quiet place. The waitresses are quick and attentive, my coffee cup is never empty! We will come back here whenever we get a chance.

This was the location we grew up with living in Shields. My brother would request to go here for his bday every year. I remember him ordering spaghetti & meatballs. Dad would ask them to give him however years he was in meatballs. It always amazed me that he would finish until age 13. Lol. We still return to Tonys... More

We love stopping here for breakfast when we are on road trips. It's always worth it! We have some friends that live in the area, and it is their favorite place too. We never object when they suggest we meet there and share a few laughs with our coffee!

We have lived in the area all our lives but the Shields area for the past 17 years. This is our go-to place for mostly breakfast. We have seen people come and go. It's gone up and down as far as quality. We have seen it get better and better the past couple years. Food is good, giant portions, servers... More

Grew up in Saginaw and went here all the time many years ago. I live in Houston and whenever I run into anyone from this area, they say the number one thing they miss is Tony's.
