We arrived a few minutes early and our table was waiting for us. The service was fantastic and the food was excellent. The view was beautiful and my husband and I had a wonderful time. We plan on going back again next week!

Amazing food and service! Everything we ordered was delicious and the location/scenery is gorgeous. It was very loud but very cozy and friendly.

Our evening at Tony’s was magical! We sat on the patio overlooking the lake with our well-mannered yellow lab. He got his own water bowl and a treat from the owner. Service was great and our food was amazing- delicious red pepper soup, shrimp in lemon butter caper sauce, portobello mushroom ravioli which was out of this world! And don’t miss a glass of Jeannette’s Red! A great place all around!

Good food - a little pricey but a expected to pay a premium because outstanding view from patio or big windows inside. Unfortunately we discovered if you make your reservation via open table you are seated towards the back with a view of the kitchen. Even though there were tables open we were told you have to call in reservation for any patio or window view!

The following critique is by no means a reflection of the staff. From the hostess to our server their service was outstanding.
However; Starting with our arrival. Very busy Saturday we had a reservation and our table wasn’t ready. That would have been fine but we had to stand outside in the parking lot to wait. Once seated the other tables were in such close proximity it was as if we were dining together. That in conjunction with the decibel level made for an uncomfortable setting. Lastly, the food was sub par at best, and did not reflect the prices. Unfortunately we will never dine there again.

Wonderful find on our vacation! Vickie was our server and she was excellent. The food was delicious, especially the hand rolled mozzarella. The noise level was extremely loud, a little too loud for us. Also there was absolutely no social distancing and none of the employees wore masks. That was disappointing, especially in light of the increasing numbers of Covid.

Excellent service and fantastic food! We have wanted to have dinner at Tony's for many years, but never were able to do so. Make sure that you ask for the home-made mozzarella appetizer. It was worth the trip alone. We will recommend Tony's to all of our friends.

This time was for a family dinner. As always Tony’s was a first class experience. Good and service was outstanding. We generally start with the mozzarella starter and again we’re not disappointed. Will be back.

Our first return since 2004 and we found this to be the perfect venue for my wife's birthday. The food was outstanding and the best meal we have had in in sometime. The menu selections were varied with something for everyone depending on taste. The service was as great as the meal and we had a perfect evening and came away with a tummy which smiled.

We had an exceptional experience. The food was outstanding. I had beef short ribs and my husband had the veal shank. They let us know that there was a 30 minute prep time on both dishes. Well worth the wait! The service was very good. Our waitress was attentive without hovering. We will go back soon!
