The experience was fine, but not what I expect for Tony and Joe’s. Significantly less upscale experience sitting outside and the food was fine but average.

Our waiter was inattentive. The food was mediocre for being so expensive. I am now embarrassed that I suggested to my company that we eat there.

I thought the food was fine. I wouldn’t recommend that honey smoked salmon salad. Salad was super underwhelming and not much dressIng. The biggest upset, however, was how they charged me $25 to “add” a crab cake to my salad. My salad cost $18. The crab cake was $25. I would’ve never added it had they warned me but they snuck it in through MP. I thought max it would be $15. So rediculous. I get why this place doesn’t have great ratings.

Service was very slow. Also the food was not that great for the price point. Not many options. A friend had to reorder her food because it didn’t look like it was cooked. The best thing was the dessert. Though not overall bad, I will not visit here again.

Wonderful experience. Generous portions, great seafood. Service was attentive but not overbearing. Restroom was a downer, clean, but not up to the quality feel of a first class restaurant.

Amazing dinner, everything was delicious and the staff was appropriately attentive. We had a large group sit directly behind us, but the noise wasn’t disruptive. We were seated at a table by the windows and got to see a beautiful sunset.

Let's be clear: you come to Tony and Joes for the ambiance and water view. Outside of that, it feels kind of like an upscale, over-priced Red Lobster. The food is subpar. I ended up sending my shrimp and grits back because the shrimp were undercooked and the grits were soggy. My mom ordered the crabcake platter, which consisted of one small cake atop a large mound of fresh vegetables (corn, zuchinni, baby potatoes, peppers). While the crabcake tasted fine, it wasn't large enough to warrant the $35 price tag. Before receiving our entrees, we received a bread basket which tasted stale. The best part of the meal was the crab dip which was chock full of lump crab, which made it easier to swallow the $18 price.

Service was just OK. The waiter didn't go out of his way to make us feel welcomed, and when I shared my concerns about the shrimp and grits, he nodded as if he'd heard it before, and then asked if I wanted something else in a rather annoying voice.

My mother remarked that she wished the menu had more variety, especially in the side dish department (maybe a baked potato, rice, or mashed potato option)?

Tony and Joes is in a beautiful, prime location. Just wish the food was equally as prime.

Service was good, food ok. Did not really get much value for money. Paid $8 for a glass of beer and $15 for a cocktail, and they had to be served in a cheap plastic cup? The staff were very friendly and nice though.

Half of the mussels were still closed. Server responds “that’s how it is sometimes” // martinis are served in a wine glass and not chilled. Turn and burn atmosphere. No engagement.
Other than that. The oysters were very good. Crab cake was full of flavor. ++

We sat outside bc it was a beautiful evening- and I guess we haven’t been there in a while bc it was MUCH more casual than I remember- metal outdoor table & chairs, not as clean as I expected or the level of service I expected. That said, the food was amazing- all seafood- and being outdoors was lovely. I just wouldn’t call this upscale dining at all.

We could not find the waitress for 20 minutes. We ordered seafood which was messy and we could even get napkins to wipe our hands. The drinks taste like water, not sure if they were sitting or just tasted liked water. The waitress never came back to the table.

Calamari was good and service was fine. My daughters chicken tenders were way over cooked and my fish tacos were very bland. For the price we could have went to a higher end place and received much better food and experience.

You have to call or go on their actual website to get an updated menu, it changes quite often. The server wasn't friendly at all. In the midst of indecisiveness, she would just walk off. Indecisiveness was due to seeing an old menu before hand and not knowing they change the menu often. There wasn't much for non- seafood eaters to choose from with this menu change. The other people who bought our food out deserved the tip the most and not the actual waitress we were given. In all the food tasted good but the options in food were few. To be honest, for the price there should be a dress code, bigger food selection and drink selection. I think this wasn't the best option for a classy birthday dinner party.

We went there to support the waterfront during the pandemic reopening. This place is hitting all its marks although the presence of empty tables clearly points to a tough 2020 and a slow recovery. Wish they could cheer the place up a bit, it was like dining on the last day bef the close of the summer season. But we had a nice family meal by a window and enjoyed ourselves. They just need some love in the form of clientele.

Loved option of dining in ac but having marvelous water view of yachts and SUPaddle folks and parade of people walking the boardwalk in comfortable padded chairs. Branzino entree was worth the $34–and really was enough fir two. Eggplant that accompanied was delicious in its own right.

Teriyaki salmon was moist, large portion thst also could have been shared. Delicious flavor.

Tried two kinds of fresh oysters and they were fresh, delicious with two sauces. Had to ask for crackers. Server was friendly but not well trained. Skip briusselsprouts—need balsamic glaze or something / seasoning or feta crumbled etc.

Overall delicious meal with friendly service. Pricey but split entrees—view and good food is unbeatable combo. August 20,2021
