Food and service was excellent. Our server, Dustin, was very helpful on picking out dining options and bourbon selections. If you do nothing else try the sweet potato side dish. Amazing

Tony’s has great service, as the waiters are well-trained. The dishes are superbly prepared. I would suggest to management that tables larger than 8 not be allowed downstairs. Celebrating a birthday replet with hydrogen filled balloons which loomed over other tables, and got in the...More
