My wife and I, celebrating our wedding anniversary, had an absolutely wonderful time. Our server, named Allen, could not have been nicer, He was attentive, engaging and always seemed to be there just when we turned our heads to look for him. The food was fantastic - as we had expected. It was cooked perfectly, was fresh and there were very hardy servings...... no small plates for us that night!

2.5% surcharge for credit card payment.
Nowhere mentioned on Open Table.

Portions are tiny. Grilled fish is only a quarter of filet. No bread offered. Tab water in plastic glasses.

The restaurant is taking social distancing guidelines too lightly.

Expensive.

Avoid this place.

My server was great. We were seated outside on a beautiful day which was great. but the food wasn't as good as usual. We have dine here many times before kitchen may have had a off day.

Absolutely amazing. The food was so fresh and delicious. My party had a hard time ordering because everything on the menu was so tempting! The staff is warm, fun, and attentive. Sitting so close to the water was great too. I eat at Tony and Joes a lot and each time is wonderful. I tell everyone in DC to go here!

Terrible. would never go back if i could give 0 stars i would. food is extremely over priced. tasteless. undercooked seasonless vegetables. server came over 4 times total. “what can i get you” x2 we had to specify drinks and food. once if we were done and then brought the check. they force you to pay cash and charge you more for each item for anything else. strange. went to 4 other places for dinner this holiday weekend all were great. this place is a rip off for tourists.

Our dining experience was just ok. The waiter was in great need of training including how to converse with patrons. Food was good, small portions and over priced in my opinion. I noticed the carpet looked like it hadn’t been vacuumed in awhile.

A nice enough venue with a great view....the service was not very good as the outside area was understaffed and our server took FOREVER to ask for our drink order. Could have gotten up and gone to the bar.

The food was pretty poor...the crab cake tasted odd and the slaw was definitely off. Needless to say I was up all night.

One of the few good things to come out of the pandemic is that Tony & Joe's seems to have stepped up its kitchen game. Having gone here for years for either the oysters or the drinks but frequently being underwhelmed by the food, our two forays after it reopened have been very pleasant surprises. We have enjoyed the fish and shrimp tacos, fried calamari and both really loved the crab cake at this recent visit. A Saturday afternoon at the waterfront can be loud...and many people would have been put off by the music pumping from the boats only 25 feet away (and that noise as well as masks made hearing our server a bit harder), but all in all to be outside, with some good food, good drink and a nice breeze in the early days of fall is a treat in 2020.

We had a great time. I’m a server and have been for many years. I’m tolerant if anything happens but our server was not attentive to our needs, I had to ask so much stuff, and she didn’t apologize or be aware at all. I will come back. Love the food. Hope the service gets better.

The menu was great but the food didn’t taste a great. We had the crab and shrimp dip it was alot of burnt cheese and not very flavorful the steak was very good but the loaded baked was dry and the cheese on top was also burnt. The blackened bass was good would have been even better if the veggies was cooked a little longer and everything was seasoned i had a great tasting bass with hard flavorless sides. Drinks was just ok all in all ok restaurant but probably wouldn’t return.

The restaurant is in a good spot. The view is wonderful. However, the service was crappy. It took about 10 minutes for someone to come over and take our drink orders. The server we had questioned everything we ordered. First issue, we ordered Cesar salads with extra dressing, she said it already comes with a lot of dressing on it. It doesn’t matter we asked for extra dressing! Second issue, I ordered the ribs with a crab cake. I asked for extra BBQ sauce, the server said again, it already has a lot on it which it did not. The French fries and crab cake was disgusting! The wine list is absolutely horrible! I can’t stand dry or semi-sweet wines. I was over it.

Originally seated outside...because it was in the evening it was getting uncomfortably cold...requested the hostess to bring us inside. She said she couldn't. Once it was escalated to manager she complied and was very helpful. Waiter was slow. Ambience could have been better. Im 55 and have been going here for 30 years...when were sneakers and sweats and baseball hats a part of fine dining?

Best dining experience I’ve had in a while ! First and foremost the shrimp and crab dip ... is AMAZING. It literally made me so happy that I began to cry. Our server Valentin is a sweetheart , very attentive and quick. Every dish that we ordered was superb . For starters we ordered calamari , which was very fresh and perfectly fried the pickled peppers were a great touch. Spicy garlic shrimp , full of flavor and juicy should’ve asked for more bread but it was great. I won’t even speak further on the crab dip , “ to cry for “. Shrimp tacos were also very tasty. Outdoor ambiance is beautiful, would definitely recommend for date night or special occasion. My guest and I will be back very soon. Thank you all for an awesome girls night out !

The best thing about this restaurant is the view when sitting outside on the patio. The Potomac and the Kennedy Center in front and the beautiful Georgetown Waterfront fountain behind. The food is over-priced and mediocre.

Great food overall & nice to be on gtown waterfront. Hostess was initially rude and said she didn’t have our reservation, until another hostess came up and told her that their system was frozen. They then sat us in the very far back corner. Food was otherwise good and service was quick.
