Tony's is a cafe on Granville Island serving up fresh fish dishes such as fish & chips, clam chowder and more.
Ordered the six raw oysters in a half shell. Found a live worm in the oysters. The worm was still moving around. The restaurant refused to either take responsibility or assure us it wouldn't happen again. In fact, they repeatedly gave us the line "I didn't make the oysters." Yes, they did give us the oysters for free, but the above matters more.
Also ordered a seafood platter consisting of cooked oysters and crab. The cooked oysters had sand in them and the crab was overcooked.
Fish dishes are as excellent as the other reviews say. Other dishes turned out to be quite disappointing.
Be aware that Tony's consistently opens 20 minutes later than its posted opening time.
I agree with the previous review. Quick service and decent food at a reasonable price. Not exciting but it's unfair to expect that. Serving person was pleasant and accommodating. Fish my companions had was good. My fried oyster sandwich was made with cakes of chopped-up oysters, disappointing. If you like green stuff, skip the salad.
This is your typical fish-n-chips restaurant, a busy little place packed with people and the incredible smell of fried seafood. I was there with a friend for a quick dinner before catching a show on Granville Island. We ordered the seafood dinner for 2 ($28 something) and a bowl of clam chowder. The food came pretty quickly and the amount was just right or us (2 pieces of fried cod, 2 friend oysters, plenty of fried clams and shrimps, and of course how can you have a fish-n-chips dinner without the chips?). I'd recommend the place for a *very* casual dinner, or if you feel like having some cheap fried seafood and happen to be in the area, this would be the place to go.
