At first, we were a little turned off by the 8:45pm reservation time. Upon going in to the restaurant, we were informed that we could bump it up an hour. The garlic cheese bread was fantastic! The Chicken Modiga was divine- the sauce perfect... the perfect amount of food!

Have been going to Tony's for years although had not been in some time. I wasn't disappointed... the food and service were as I remembered... Excellent! You simply cannot go wrong with any of the selections on the menu and the Au Gratin potatoes are to die for.

Terrific dinner!! My wife and I love Tony's. We had our rehearsal dinner there. Food was well prepared and delicious. Our server was busy taking care of a large private party and still did an excellent job! She made it look easy. Busy restaurant, but not too loud. Hannah's combo is the best deal around, and you have to try the white chicken nachos...they are the best. Our favorite restaurant in the St. Louis/St. Charles area.

I brought my wife to Tony's for her birthday. Unfortunately, I couldn't get in on Saturday and that was booking 2 weeks in advance however; we did get in on Friday. I'm very happy that we were able to get in because the cuisine and service were amazing. I always look good to my wife when I find places like Tony's . I would definitely recommend this place to my friends and anyone else visiting St. Charles. Being from central Illinois, we will definitely be back to Tony's on our get-a-way weekends! Thank you for making our first time memorable.

The food was fabulous!! We had 7 in our party and ordered a variety of food, sandwiches & pizza to steak and lobster tail. Everyone was very pleased with their order. The waiter was slow, did not remember to place drink orders nor check on our group very often. The overall experience was good and everyone agreed they would visit again.

There was only 2 kinds of pasta, both cold, 1 kind of pizza and various kinds of chicken. The only food that was good were the toasted ravioli. It was fine for a one time experience but that's all.

I've been to Tony's about 6 times, but this time was disappointing. The menu at the restaurant was different than on line and the prices were higher by $2 to $3, plus my favorite entree was taken off the menu. The portions were different also and tasted pre cooked then reheated...very disappointing!

Normally our experiences have been great. This past time, we feel the service was a little slower even with the restaurant not too busy. Some of the food was cold but the taste was still very good. They did raise prices quite a bit on some items.

We have been to this restaurant several times and have always enjoyed ourselves. It is one of our favorites. This was our 25th anniversary and once again everything was great. We always get the chicken nachos for an appetizer. They are great. Can't wait to go back again.

The filet mignon is the best steak around and the steak butter tops it off nicely. All side dishes are amazing. Other favorites are the tuna and chicken and steak combination plate. Salads are always fresh and delicious. It's a very relaxed atmosphere with courteous and friendly wait staff. Perfect for a family dinner or a romantic dinner for 2. My only complaint would be to bring a jacket as it always seems to be chilly.

The absolute best thing about Tony's, besides that they are on opentable now....Their white chicken nachos!

They are divine! I crave them when I'm not there, I take people from out of town, anything for an excuse...I know the recipe is online, but they just do it best!

Their Steak Anthony is also noteable....deliciously tender steak, covered in gooey cheese onions and mushrooms. Perfect meal, don't even need a salad or side, but they come with :)

Tony's could be my favorite 'joint'....especially on Main Street!

Our favorite place for a steak. Make reservations! The salad is crisp and fresh. The steaks and shrimp are SO good. The wait staff is well trained and friendly. The one change I would love to see is to make the whole place smoke-free. The smell wasn't present in the dining room, but we had to walk thru the bar to get there. With a reservation, you won't be waiting in the bar.

If you want good, downhome food, sports bar type, this is your place. The service is excellent, and the staff is welcoming. The food is not gormet and doesn't pretend to be. The house salad dressing is excellent! The portions are smaller than the last time we were here, and for us that is a plus. Our steaks were tender and juicy. And they have one of our favorite wines.

This visit, three of us tried the pasta, while one had a petit filet. As last visit, the steak was perfectly cooked and delicious. The salsiccia pasta dishes and seafood pasta were not impressive, just not much flavor and the seafood pasta had only a few shrimp and clams hard to find.
Atmosphere and service great.

My wife and I found Tony's about 3 years ago. Now, when we want a steak, that is the go-to spot. The Hanna's Combo is a must, Filet and Chicken, does not get any better. Also, the Ribs are the best I have ever had. Just a great meal, period.

And I don't mean the bbq. Walk through the smoky bar to the dining room, which is also smoky as the doors are kept open between the two rooms. The most in-Italian food I've ever seen. Few red sauces but lots of heavy Alfredo's. Big portions though and well priced. Nice server.

The food at Tony's is really good... I enjoyed my dinner a couple weeks ago, a little better than lunch last week, but it was good. The only complaint I have is even tho we were not sitting in the bar area, we could smell the cigarette smoke. A couple people in our group have some allergies, and the smell does bother them. But I love your restaurant and have recommended it to many people! Keep up the good work.

We enjoyed dinner with our friends after the Christmas Tree Lighting on Main Street. I'd made the reservation a month earlier without issues thru Open Table. Katie was a gracious server & our meals were all delicious; noting the White Chicken Nachos shared by the table & the KC Strip Steak done perfectly. My only negative, that I'll fix for the next time, was 6 of us sat in a Booth. They are just not comfortable. Remember to be specific in your Reservation requests.
