Not an elegant restaurant,but they serve the best crab cakes I've ever had! They were light and fluffy (yes, really) and not at all greasy. The inside seating is small and there's not much ambience, but the food and friendly staff makes up for all that.

Don't let the "shack" fool you. This is good food and friendly staff. We make the 5 hour drive and stay overnight just to eat here.

We ordered 2 cioppino (tomato base fish stew) crab cakes & 1 Corona the total came to $50 including a $5 tip. 12oz bowl was not enough for the $12.75 price tag, no white fish, to much baby shrimp, 4 cockles w/shells, little crab (no chunks) very plain base. 2 crab cakes $15, good but served w/ tarter sauce, would...

A nice local place for a quick meal. I had the fish and chips which were very good. I would not hesitate to return to this place.

Traveling the coast line and stayed in Bandon one night. Wanted local seafood and stopped by Tony's. We tried a bowl of their clam chowder first and it was terrible. It was white water that they dragged a clam through with some bay leaf. In all of our sampling of chowder this was the worse. Needless to say we did... More

Funky local crab shack with eclectic menu and expected nautical themed decorations. My special crab sandwich was worth every penny. My buddies gave thumbs up for their fish taco and cod sandwich. What I didn't expect was music from Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughn. Perfect bluesy touch. Highly recommended.

Fish tacos were delicious and full of fish. The crab sandwich was stuffed with delicious crab but found the clam chowder lacking. Too much potato and not enough clams. Still an extensive menu that it was hard to make a choice..

I am from Gulf Coast Louisiana, and my wife is from the Chesapeake By area of Maryland. We both grew up fishing, shrimping and crabbing ... and cleaning and eating our way through years of "Calinecthys Sapidus" ... the Atlantic Blue Crab featured in the Pulitzer Prize winning book "Beautiful Swimmers." That said, in my adulthood I have eaten the... More

I enjoyed the chowder the best, but wish I'd stopped with the chowder. The rest was a bit pricey. The salmon was a bit too dry.

I had looked forward to having their fish tacos only to Learn that by early afternoon on Sunday they had run out 😞 lesson learned--on a holiday weekend don't wait until afternoon. You may lose out
