Normally have amazing food here, but tonight the filet mignon was incredibly overcooked. Ordered medium, got well done. When asked how the meal was, we told our server we were disappointed, and she didn't offer to make it right. Such a disappointment for what is normally a top notch establishment.

Really had a great time at Tony’s. The food was outstanding, fish dishes prepared perfectly and elegantly seasoned and presented. The service was excellent. The server was very knowledgeable regarding the menu and food preparation. The brownie/ice cream/chocolate dessert was really awesome. They also have a very attractive selection of interesting wines to choose from. Whether you’re looking for a special occasion dinner or just in the mood for a special dining night out, I highly recommend Tony’s.

Our server Andy did a superb job! The food was fabulous - we had the short rib and a filet with a mac n cheese side. I also had a smoked old fashion which was so delicious. More than we spend for a casual night out but we were out for a special night and this was well worth it!

Everything was wonderful except none of the staff was wearing masks. Every other restaurant has masked employees to ensure guest and server safety, I thought it was rude not to have them wearing masks.

The waiter was very informative and was able to give personal experiences with the food. Great recommendations for our meal. The tables are small and crowed when trying to eat. The chairs are not comfortable.

Top level staff serving excellent food. While the appetizer and deserts were among the best we’ve had. The filet, which my guest and I both ordered -while still excellent- was not. In the spirit of clarification, I should write the meat itself was exactly the quality I would expect. The preparation, however, was not what I prefer. In addition, the room is a bit loud, as well as the music, and it made it sometimes difficult to understand one another. I do still recommend Tony’s and I feel most anyone who chooses to dine here will have an excellent experience.

We reserved a booth for our special anniversary celebration, however we were left standing for 15 min after we told the host that we would take a table while others were seated immediately. We choose this location every anniversary and have never experience a delay or slow service as yesterday. This out a damper on our celebration.

I think Tony's serves an average-quality meal. I had there $55 filet mignon and it was good, but not great. They serve it with "onion straws" which are basically greasy fried bits of onion. I cannot imagine anyone liking those.

My wife enjoyed the pork chop and sweet potatoes, so those are definitely great menu items.

Our server told us that the kitchen had a Covid-19 issue and that certain menu items weren't available (none of which my wife and I wanted). I didn't see any staff in masks (but given how loud the restaurant was, I doubt that would have been practical). The restaurant space is quite small, so I was a little concerned about us swapping air with the other patrons, four of whom were barely more than an elbow's length away.

Given how many other nice restaurants are around, I wouldn't say Tony's would make our regular rotation. It somehow misses the mark, I feel.

This was my husband’s birthday celebration and our first time to Tony’s. We have heard about how great their steaks and service was since it opened so we were very excited to finally get to go. When we arrived a bit early the hostess said our table wasn’t quite ready so we went to the bar for a drink. The staircase is very pretty! The bar is pretty but gives the feeling of a pub with its high top wooden tables. Drinks were good and about the price I expected. After about fifteen minutes our table was ready. I was really hoping our table would have been further back in the restaurant so I could get a proper feel of the atmosphere. Our table was only a few feet from the hostess desk. I also expected the dress code to be enforced to match the price tag of the dinner. We soon saw a Big Blue Nation shirt close to us. To start off my son who has been there a few times highly recommended the tuna tartare. He was correct it was delicious. For our entrees my son ordered the New York strip. His girlfriend ordered carbonara with chicken. My husband ordered the bone in ribeye and I had the filet. We also ordered the Brussels sprouts and mashed potatoes which were very good. All of the food arrived timely. The waiter was punctual and polite. The bread was very good. The entrees came out hot. So now for the steaks. My son and I both ordered ours medium and my husband ordered medium rare. I immediately found my filet to be dry and over cooked. It was really more like a medium well. As I got deeper into it, it was a bit better. I’ve had many fillets which cut like butter in the past but this one did not. I tasted of the other two steaks as well. Although they were better than mine they were still not what I had hoped for. If we had been paying for a steak at a much lower price they would have been sufficient. My son’s girlfriends carbonara was good but she never got the chicken she ordered with it. Our experience was good but not excellent as I expected.

Server was knowable about menu items and did a good job thru out Just looking for more viberant plates . the flavors were there the excation was not but over all we did enjoy the food and service. When entering I was asked to remove my hat and I did toward the end of dinning another 2 top came in the guy had a had on. For what ever reason I was asked to remove my hat and the other guy was not I felt because he was black the server was afrade to ask him. The 3 top next to us also notice this as we herd. I just feel that if there is a policy then all should abide. The 20 year old server should know how to handdle all patrons .. Just my thoughts

Great place to visit for drinks, dinner, and anything they offer. The oysters on the half shell were incredible. The quality of the food is outstanding and the portion sizes are large enough to share. The filet's melt in your mouth.

As always, Tony’s did not disappoint! Johnny is always a treat. He is pleasant and is a great assistance when we can’t decide what to order! We have enjoyed getting to know him more each time we visit. In addition to Johnny, the bar manager, Kelly, went out of his way to find a bottle of a particular bourbon my husband likes. Overall a wonderful experience!!
