Where to Dine on the Quincy WaterFront Tony’s Clam Shop

Where to Dine on the Quincy WaterFront  Tony's Clam Shop Tony’s Clam Shop,  is   local favorite   that has been  on Wollaston  beach in Quncy   for over 50
years.   It is casual dining where you order at the counter.   They  cook all all  menu items to order as a commitment to excellence our customers remain loyal to. They use only the freshest seafood and produce items available. We are proud of our  longevity in the business. We attribute that to our commitment to excellence and our loyal
customers.

Tony’s menu is full of comfort favorites such as hot dogs and burgers, seafood options, and even Middle Eastern specialties, like tabouli and falafel! Tony’s has their liquor license giving customers a variety of beers and wines to choose from.

Here is the Swampie buzz of the Tony’s Clam Shop on Wollaston Beach

Tony’s Clam Shop, in Quincy. I wasn’t all that far at the time so, figured to stop in. For a first, I parked around back, which quickly turns residential. Inside, I was soon greeted at the Whole Belly Clams at Tony's Clam shop Wollaston Beach Quincy counter. Was a tad undecided. I almost got the Seafood Platter but, instead went with a 2-way of Whole Belly Clams and Scallops. With a good pour of draft Cisco Whale’s Tale.
I enjoyed every bite. Clams tasted of the sea. Scallops were impressive. Big surprise was the cole slaw. So much better than before.
As always, well worth the trip!

I’ve lived here 32 years and had not yet eaten at Tony’s Clam Shop on Quincy Shore Dr in Quincy. Since we needed to celebrate Father’s Day early and the weather was fabulous we Crab cakes at  Tony's Clam shop Wollaston Beach Quincy headed to Quincy Bay for seafood. Our dishes didn’t disappoint. Crab cakes were mostly crab with a tasty remoulade sauce. Shrimp were some of the freshest I’ve had in some time. Good fries cooked well. Even the cole slaw was crunchy with a good sauce and I’m fussy about my slaw. Sitting outside with great views of the Boston skyline and the water is fabulous but tempered by the four lanes of traffic at your feet. Great food but $$$$. Constant stream of customers must mean it’s worth the price!

Tony’s Clam Shoppe is awesome. I grew up going there as a Quincy kid. Anyhow, this is the broiled fish dinner. It’s a generous portion of haddock (I had already eaten at least 3 ounces before taking the picture) with lots of rice and salad for $18.95. Three meals worth for me (at least).

Pit stop in Quincy, at Tony’s Clam Shop. Across from Wollaston Beach. For a first, we tried their Lobster Roll with melted butter. Gets its own section on the board. It is $22.95 and delightful! Along with a combo plate of deep fried shrimp and scallops.Lobster Roll Fried Shrimp plate  at Tony's Clam shop Wollaston Beach Quincy
We soon realized that picking off delectable bites was better than trying to bite into the overstuffed roll. So much! The deep fried was done to perfection. Batter and all.
Service is exceptional in terms of asking for condiments like lemon slices, mayo and cocktail sauce.
Needless to say, we are big fans.

Tony’s clam Shop in Quincy… What can I say that isn’t obvious from this picture? Hands down, the best fried clams I’ve ever had. And I’ve eaten more than my share. I’m ruined now. Not a trace of grit or sand anywhere. Ridiculously fresh, crispy coating, tender as could be. I want more right now.

HANDS DOWN one of best seafood in and around new enland ..im crazy about my seafood and bow im crazy about tony’s…absolutely incredible….great prices and our plates were stacked high….very intimidating an worth the ride….ill be back for sure

I really loved the place.. The mouth watering and delicious food along with the fresh and lovely breeze was enhancing the beauty of Wollaston beach and flavor of summer.. We ordered fish and chips and a full plate of lobsters fry.. The quantity was too good and the price was quiet reasonable..I went with my husband and we both couldn’t finish the meal, due to its quantity, we were over loaded..

Open Spring,summer and fall

Where to eat on Marina Bay Quincy

Here is the Swampie buzz of   Siros n  ItaliaRestaurant Marina Bay

My sister and I took my mom to Siro’s at marina bay for Mother’s Day. Had made reservations , got a nice window seat. Even though the weather was not that great the view was still nice. Had the best waitress Jen. Came over and took are drink orders right away. They had a special menu for Mother’s Day. We started with the Lobster Bisque. It was very good. My sister and I ordered the Filet with Lobster. Came out just how we ordered it. Was a good size filet.. Also came with two good sized lobster pieces. Mom got the scallops which was also good. The waitress Jen was excellent. She checked on us thoughout the meal, even when she had a lot of other tables including a large party.

Went to Siros in Marina Bay last night with my cousin. Wow…we seated outside under cover looking out over the harbor and with a view of Boston. Then the downpours and thunder and lightening started! It was awesome…because we were out there but under cover! We started with rolled eggplant which was thin sliced with some kind of cheese (goat maybe) and lightly fried. To die for. Then came beet salad which is always a huge favorite…the roasted beets and whipped ricotta/goat was delish! Next…seafood risotto. OMG. Huge pieces of lobster and large scallops and large shrimp in a delicious cream sauce. So not good for and worth every calorie! Dessert was tiramisou. Creamy and sweet and a great ending! Our waitress was so busy and so sweet! Can’t wait to go back!!

Great food always ! Chicken Parmesan is fantastic. Caesar Salad is fantastic.
Eggplant Rollitini is excellent and the
Hummus and bread is great too !
Have never once had less than an excellent
Meal here… The staff is very professional
And friendly , and always provide perfect service. The place is very attractive inside
And the views are nice too ! Have been going here since it first opened and Will always go back

Have been here for many functions (showers, birthdays, retirements) and many more times just for lunch/dinner. Always love it! Location food and hospitality are wonderful.

This place could not be more perfect! Took my husband for
his birthday dinner and was everything we wanted it to be. Our waitress, Jen was so pleasurable and always made sure we were happy. Food was amazing. Can’t wait to
visit again.

Took my aunt for her birthday lunch and the food was great! the  waitress Liz was  awesome. They were very friendly and accommodating. Great place to celebrate special occasion. Nice boardwalk and view added. Will come and dine again!

We enjoyed amazing, delicious pan seared halibut on a bed of lobster and corn risotto today! Absolutely delicious! Beautiful day on Marina Bay boardwalk at SIROS

And this summer season is going to be even better and more fun with the addition of our massive, hand-built raw bar which will feature the freshest shellfish from local waters, all shucked to order!

Picturesque water views. Hazy sunsets. Moonlit nights. Gentle breezes. The old song had it right. There is nothing better than sitting on the dock of the bay. Nestled inside Bay Pointe Marina in Quincy, on the South Shore of Massachusetts, The Inn at Bay Pointe sits on the docks amongst the boats and alongside the bay and offers a spectacular New England backdrop for both innovative and traditional fin fare fresh from local markets. In the summer months, relax and watch the boats drift by from our large seaside deck or dine year round inside where nearly every seat in our dining room overlooks the water and adjacent marina and a sophisticated 13619845_1139055969469204_1625008592909454799_nnautical décor creates an ambiance of simple elegance.

For seafood lovers, the chef offers the “Bay Pointe Fish Market Menu”, a separate selection above and beyond the daily menus that boasts a variety of fresh fish that can be prepared to your specifications. The fish offered on any given day depends on seasonality and availability and will change on a daily basis depending on what our fishermen can supply, just like an actual fish market.

Here is the Swampie buzz of the The  Inn at the Bay Pointe in Quincy  

The Inn At Bay Pointe in Quincy on the waterfront!
I had mouthwatering mussels in a white wine garlic + sauce. I’m afraid I had had 2 drinks so it looks a little blurry today!!point is, I’d get them again!!! Bon appetit!!

We had a pre-birthday celebration @ Inn @ Bay Point last night. Per usual the food was 13254495_1112416075466527_3522686653623408071_nAMAZING & our server Danielle was top notch !! Great night with family & loved ones. !!

Service was impeccable, stuff knowledgeable, fast, attentive, visually pleasing and “patient”
Portions were largr  generous, cost reasonable and arrangement and presentation mouth watering. Forget about the cherry on top … The part when we’re overlooking the marina and feeling the breeze on a beautiful outdoor patio.

From the moment I walked in to the second I left it was an awesome experience. The food was top notch! Staff happy, helpful and efficient. I recommend this restaurant experience to anyone.

My sisters and I went here for first time yesterday on Mother’s Day after seeing it advertised on talked about online  at the swampie  The atmosphere, staff, and food were all great. The portion sizes were huge too. We tried the prime rib and baked stuffed lobster everyone was satisfied. After dinner, we went outside in back to the gazebo and took some pictures. We definitely will be going back there!

Wonderful food! beautiful view! best the best thing to do is always have reservations  especially on a summer weekend  so you can just get right in and enjoy yourself but walk-ins are always welcome.

Excellent restaurant and amazing meal!!!! We got the oysters as an appetizer, the 2 lb. baked stuffed lobster, and broiled scallops…. oh my yummy

Went for my 3rd time tonight with my hubby  and sat outside on the deck. Had about a 20 minute wait for an outdoor  table so grabbed a drink at the bar and enjoyed the views. Beautiful weather with good drinks and great food. I got the seared shrimp and scallops and hubby  got the blackened chicken pasta. We both loved our meals, but I think his won. The pasta sauce was delicious. Will definitely be back again this summer.

Great spot for a casual  lunch. Everyone’s food  was delicious and service was on point. Two overflowing bread baskets for our large  table of 6, calamari was fresh with a delicious aioli, steak was tender, scrod was light and flaky, swordfish melted in your mouth, and I was extremely happy with my cobb salad with added shrimp. Will def be back soon.

After not having a great experience, I wantedto try again  My husband and I went on a Monday night.  Got seated right away at a water front table. Had an excellent waitress named Maria  that was new but never would of known it, friendly personable checked in wiht us when needed . She did an outstanding job. Got the scollops and lobster risoto. Was delicious husband got the lobster mac and cheese was also good.
