Excellent food and service in casual outdoor dining.
Yummy alligator appetizer! Seriously, it tasted like chicken. Loved my entree… shrimp and scallops with pasta in a “Rosa” sauce. DELISH! As always, I look forward to the next time.
Friendly staff; great seafood spot.
Sarina was an excellent server. So pleasant and attentive. First time here and we were very pleased
Food was excellent and waitresses were very prompt pleasant and attentive even though they were under staffed
Very friendly service. Food was good but not exceptional.
Always happy with our meal and service. Seafood and pasta dishes are all delicious. It is a BYOB which is another plus.
Great food. The waitress was very attentive. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone. Not just seafood lovers.
It does not say it is a BYOB for reservation
Always great food. Have gone several times over the past few months and have always been satisfied with my meals. Fish entrees are always fresh and special menu additions are unique and well prepared. Highly recommend!
We had requested outdoor seating through opentable and even called to make sure, they said no problem. However, when we got there, they had no record of us requesting it and wanted to put us right at the entrance way of the indoor dining area. It was raining out and eventually sat us outside in a mostly covered space, next to the bathroom- no luck and it was super busy and the food took forever. The food itself was good tho so would go back but will call to make reservations next time as I think they get preference
Bang bang shrimp, shrimp scampi, and stuffed flounder were outstanding! Service by Kristina was likewise wonderful. Throughly enjoyed dinner.
Seating is mostly outdoors, service was absolutely fantastic. It’s BYOB but if you forget there is a liquor store around the corner. Seafood was fresh, and tasty!
Got reservations for outside only could sit inside. Food was ok. Crab cakes just ok
The octopus appetizer was delicious...and big enough to share. The rest of our meal was very good. It was a very hot and humid evening. The fans under the awning helped keep the air flowing.
Tonio's was great. BYOB. Sat under a tent outside in August. Was not too hot. The fans worked well.
Seafood was fresh and really good.
We'll definitely be back. A great place at the Shore to get seafood!
With being told there was a crab shortage and having a crab cake I didn’t expect to get a golf ball size crab cake. It was smaller then the fried shrimp but then I was told there was a crab shortage 😊
My wife and I sat there for 15 minutes and we’re never greeted it or served people who came in after us were greeted and served. We alerted the hostess but still no one came so we left
Outdoor space was nice and had a good vibe.
Good quality straightforward seafood. Not great value but not overpriced either. Back porch dining is fine if it’s not too hot/cold.
Fantastic, as always!
Beautiful outdoor shore scene with amazing food!
Great casual atmosphere with plenty of delicious seafood and shellfish to choose from. And my landlubber son had a great steak. Will be back!
We went for dinner Saturday night. We ordered the filet and lobster tails. Everything was wonderful. The filet was cooked perfectly and very tender. The lobster tails were amazing. It waz a great evening! Thank you, we can't wait to come back!
The best, fresh sea food along with great service. A winner.
Good food fairly priced. Friendly service but length of time for entrees was excessive.
Waited an hour and a half for dinner to be served.
Was BYOB with no info on OpenTable I could find about this.
Food was excellent. The wait was very for our entree. Sat down at 7:00 and served after 8:00. Waitress was excellent also.
Courteous, friendly, efficient service. Pleasant setting. One entree good, the rest low quality.
Don't let the pizzeria across the parking lot or the "Shack" part of the name fool you. My husband and I had by far the best meal of our three-night Stone Harbor trip at Tonio's. Another couple--both locals--joined us, and they hadn't been to Tonio's before. They flipped. Of note, he's an excellent seafood cook who has lived in the area his whole life, and he was blown away by the quality of the seafood and the preparation. Everything was fresh, innovative and delicious. We had stone crab claws and octopus for starters, and that was the first time I liked octopus: tender and well-seasoned. We all ordered off the specials menu, and everyone raved. I wish I'd taken the time to post this right after we ate there because I'm a little vague on the details. The guys had pasta with clams and shrimp (I think), and we all helped them clean up the yummy sauce with bread. Just outstanding. I had branzino with a tropical salsa, and we all shared a dessert, a surprisingly elegant peanut butter and chocolate "bombe" that had a mousse-like texture and really good quality chocolate. Most of all, I wish I could remember our server's name. What a pro. Friendly, experienced, attentive, and fun. By the way, we dined on the patio in the back, where we were perfectly shielded from a rainstorm that ripped through. The patio is lined with huge yew bushes and was quite private and lovely. This ain't no "shack." Highly recommend!
Good food and good service! Nice place for outdoor dining.
This is a very nice restaurant. Everyone in our party (4) loved their meal. I had Fried Seafood Combo and it was outstanding.
Terrific meal & service.
If your looking for casual outdoor dinning serving fresh seafood at moderate prices look no further. Reservations a must. Great for a couple or family large or small. BYOB a bonus as well.
Wonderful casual porch dining with delicious food and friendly service. BYOB. We had steak and seafood. My son proclaimed his steak perfect and he is a steak connoisseur! My pasta with scallops was memorable. We will be back next summer!
Service was great. We had a group of 5 - some food was good/some just ok. Shrimp apps were good but very expensive for what you get (FOUR Buffalo shrimp which were fried shrimp with Buffalo sauce drizzled on top-not complicated). Bottom line - wouldn’t return.
Great food and great service. Our server, Tory was friendly, knowledgeable and offered extremely personalized service. Loved that it was BYOB. Food took a little longer than expected (about 35-40 minutes) but it was obviously because it was the middle of Friday night dinner service and they were pumping out tons of takeout which speaks to the quality of the food. I’d highly recommend this place!
The Chicken Bruschetta was excellent and the filet mignon perfectly cooked and extremely tender
Very good food! It seems like it is a hidden secret and only the locals know. We would love to go back!
Food is always outstanding, very fresh. The service is great. Love the outdoor dining area.
