très bon steack house Nous sommes arrivés tard et des plats étaient épuisés malheureusement pour nos envies. Ceux qui restaient étaient excellents. La viande est parfaite et cuite conformément à la demande et les desserts sont très bons. Le service est excellent, efficace et sympathique.

No wonder it is still going strong! Absolutely superb, bit like a step back in time and lived up to everything we'd read about. 60 years!!!!!!!!!!!! and no wonder it is still so popular. Huge choice of steaks to select from as well as classics for entrees and desserts. Steaks cooked to perfection, salad and chips the best accompaniment. Very quick service despite them saying they were short staffed. Good choice of wine by the glass. Can see why they have to turn so many away, highly recommend!

Pre Show Dinner Fantastic meal, reviews did not disappoint. Friendly and efficient staff, hungry teenagers very satisfied with portion sizes, and beautifully cooked steaks. Great location close to our show, so no stress for eating time. Thanks Tony's we'll be back.

Outstanding! I had the fillet, and it was one of the best tasting steaks I've ever had, and I have had steak at a lot of places! No need to drown it in a sauce; the flavor stands on its own.

Excellent steaks; Great value After reading other travellers' reviews, we were already impressed with the restaurant. When we went there for lunch, we were not disappointed. In fact we went there twice for lunch. Unfortunately, the restaurant doesn't open for lunch on weekends or else we would have went for a third time. The steaks were simply excellent. Try the fresh oysters too. They too are excellent.
