If it swims, they have it! Fresh, fried or boiled, they have it! Their crawfish is the best I have had in a long time, not little bitty crawbabies but real craw daddies ! Along with all that they have an awesome lunch. Not just seafood on the lunch line but meat and veggies as well. Of course you can... More

Tony's doesn't look like much inside or out, but it is absolutely worth a visit for the fried catfish, which is perhaps one of the best pieces of fish I've had. I've gone with colleagues based on the recommendations of locals. It's a short drive but even after returning to work, the fried coating remains crispy. Beneath the coating, the... More

Or you can get fresh catfish, caught and cut to order. If you love variety. Hey! ALSO they can pack up frozen orders to ship around the country. I... More

Pros: - The food, plain and simple. This is a lunch-line kind of format tucked into the back of a small grocery store. All the cajun staples are available - and they're all fantastic. I've had the Crawfish Etoufee in the past and it was amazing. This trip I had the Jambalya and it was one of the best I've... More

Tony's has the best seafood in the South. Long lines but worth the wait. Everything in one stop. Always a good catch!

Good is always great, that's why they are always so busy! Boiled crawfish is always good. I can't pick one thing off the line as my favorite because everything is delicious! You can't go wrong!

Freshest oysters around! Great fresh fish! A Baton Rouge gem! 80 to 100 oysters by the sack $40-$50 dollars! Or buy them shucked! Never had their hot lunches, but there is always a line. Especially on church Sunday.
