We have been wanting to try the clam shop for several years when we went to ENC for FOL and we finally had good weather to be able to walk down to the water in between competitions.

Absolutely delicious fried clams! A bit pricey, but worth it. My husband & I usually split a clam plate and it's plenty for the two of us.

Wish they were open all year round!! Best clams according to my husband and my favorite is their clam chowder and clam cakes - fantastic. Also, the best restaurant view of the great Atlantic right outside under their umbrella tables.

The seafood is tasty and abundant. Always fresh. Not an inexpensive meal but worth it anyway. Outdoor seating and view of the water.

The food here is cooked perfectly. If you're wondering if it's better than "the clam box" right down the street, it is, but you definitely pay for the higher quality. The view might make it all worth it.

Look no further, just head down to Wollaston Beach and find a spot to park across the street of in the lot alongside the restraurant. These are the best fried clams in Quincy.

Went to Tony's on a beautiful, sunny fall afternoon with family. We were a mix group, half from Toronto (Canada) and half from Boston. We had a few seafood platters, chowder and steamers. Oh my! The seafood was all on point. The platter was huge! It included big belly clams (as requested), giant scallops, giant shrimp, fish, and either onion... More
