Lovely evening meal outside. Great service and value and good food. Easy parking. What more could you want?
We have been to Tonio’s on a number of occasions and it’s been very good each time. Food was quite good; ambience in the outdoor setting was nice; and service was fine. It’s a bit on the pricey side, but, hey, it’s the shore. All in all, a very nice experience. The fact that it’s BYOB adds to the value. We will certainly return.
not in the off season service was pleasant but slow and food was over cooked by a lot
Great place. Second time there and food was same as last time , delicious 😋 very impressed when the chef brought out my tuna to tell me why it was served a bit later than everyone else at out table. Love the attention to detail
We were very surprised and definitely go back there again
Good food and friendly service. It was busy and the staff handled it well. We’ll go back.
Went for the Lobster Roll which we found out was only on lunch menu. Had excellent linguini with red clam sauce.
I've eaten at Tonio's a few times and always pleased. Perhaps because of the crowd and business this time did not seem up to the standard. I had the mani special which was priced 4.00 more than simply grilled. Have to say it was vey dry. Otherwise very friendly and nice to have the salad included.
Great little shore find.
As always consistently good and great service
Wonderful staff, great food, only downside was that appetizer was on the small side.
What a pleasant surprise! My wife and I have had a home in Wildwood for 17 years and thought we knew most of the quality restaurants in the area. We were not familiar with Tonio's and gave it a try. We dined in the outdoor area which was very nice. A young lady was playing acoustic guitar and was very enjoyable. The menu is quite extensive (obviously with seafood). The prices were fair and portion sizes were plentiful. My wife had the red snapper which was delicious. I ordered the tuna steak which was excellent as well. Our server, Jenna, was attentive and knowledgeable. I highly recommend Tonio's and we plan to return soon.
Food was outstanding as was the service only negative is that the food took a while to come back.
Food was excellent. I had the Lobster special. Very fresh and piping hot. My spouse had blackened swordfish. Server was attentive and friendly. We reserved on open table. Next time, I need to request patio table. On Mon, Tues & Thur they have live entertainment on the patio. We at indoors which was nice, but would have liked to eat outside under covered patio. Will return.
Nothing terrible about this place, but the food is unimaginative and unsophisticated and the service was disorganized and spotty, but the prices were relatively high.
Always an excellent meal and great service!!
We both had the hog fish. (One day we might be able to rename it). It was very good. Tuna tower as an appetizer spIcey and a nice starter.
Very satisfied with service and attitude of all the working there. All in all this is the third time that we had been there in a short period of time and every time they met with exceeded expectations. Keep it up!
Tonio's is always good. The outdoor space is great. BYO and great for Family dinner!
Outstanding! Shrimp,scallops and pasta with Rosa sauce excellent. Mary Anne had sautéed soft shelled crabs —tasty. Service team was friendly and on top of things. Thsis is a good place fore fresh seafood!
Had blacked tuna (rare) and blackened swordfish. Nicely done. Servers were competent and attentive.. good time!
Food was good
Service was slow
Second summer visiting Tonio’s. Had the broiled seafood platter, 6 oz. lobster tail, scallops, crab cake & flounder. Flounder piece was very small, no taste. All other seafood on plate was great. No real ambience but I was their for the fresh seafood. We ate inside. They have outside seating, also. Will visit again next summer when back in Avalon.
We were seated inside as patio was booked but we did not have a reservation ahead of time so very nice with booth seating. The pasta dish is enough to share at no extra cost and includes a salad. The waitresses were excellent.
Tonios has become one of our favorites!! Never had a bad meal or service!! Food is delicious & service is always spot on! Their Seafood special with shrimp, scallops over pasta with a Rosa sauce is to die for! Enjoy!
I know there are several seafood options on the island, but this is the best bang for your buck. The food is ALL amazing (from lobster rolls to sushi to the octopus) … all is prepared fresh and good portions. And the prices are very fair. The BYO option makes it even better! Highly recommend you try this little gem in Avalon!
We sat outside. It was very pleasant. It was a very busy night. The food was a bit slow coming out but it was very good. The crab cake is all crab meat. The halibut special was excellent. Our server was pleasant and kept us informed of the status of our food. All in all I highly recommend it.
Tonio's seafood is fresh and delicious. Total beach vibe outside with live music on most nights and the staff is friendly and fun to spend an evening with. Highly recommend the bang bang sauce and conch fritters, soft shells and the tuna tartare with avacado. BYOB so a great value....
Been to Tonio’s several times, hoping tonight was an off night. Entrees were good but my potato was very dry & over cooked, salad appeared to be sitting around, not crisp and way too much yellow iceberg! We were served 3 small pieces of bread that was dry & wasn’t warm. We were there early so it is possible that those items may have been made earlier in the day. As we were leaving I noticed the bread on the tables that just came in did look fresh. Service was ok, here again it may have been that they weren’t busy enough & were distracted. Doubt we will return this season, maybe give it a try next year.
The tuna special I had might be the best ever. Can’t wait to go back.
Always delicious food, service good and fast. Buffalo shrimp excellent as was stuffed flounder and shrimp and scallops in rose sauce!
Our first time there and we will definitely go back. There were 8 of us and every dish came out perfect. The sachetti in rosa sauce with crabmeat was excellent. Love that’s it’s also BYOB
Vacation with our kids...Tonio’s was their first choice!!
Great service and a very enjoyable night out! The food was very good and we were really impressed with how quickly they got everything out! Great place for kids!
Top quality food, friendly and attentive servants, and a comfortable, relaxing ambience.
Nice outdoor seating and well done seafood. The soft shell crabs were excellent.
Excellent food and service.
Classic shore seafood spot. Food was okay. Service was very slow!
My husband ordered what he wanted and I added two lobster tails for $16. With bread and half his salad and our BYOB wine sitting out in the evening air it was a perfect dinner.
A cute little place with a nice selection of seafood. The muscles and Chilean Sea Bass was incredible. The waitress was very personable and friendly. We enjoyed it and definitely would go back.
We had a very good meal. Expensive considering the venue
