Great portions and fantastic ice cream! They also have food, we didn't eat, but it looked tasty. Would recommend stopping, it's a yummy treat! It's downtown in an old building, quaint and fun atmosphere.

Awesome icecream, milkshakes and hot fudge cake! I love the chocolate peanut butter ripple icecream :) So good! Established in 1910 and pretty old fashioned! Charming and plain old good!

I would drive an hour or more for a Tony's milkshake! This is my favorite indulgence. The only problem is I can't finish the whole milkshake because the serving is double the usual serve!

I enjoyed the food....french fries reminded me of the Sof-t-shop in Goldsboro, NC. The ice cream was lacking the creamy flavor that I love. Five stars for the food but only three for the ice cream.

It is always a great visit at Tony's, the burgers for hot and juicy and most of all the shakes are worth the travel from the mountains. will be back again and again

I should have went to Sonics better Ann's cheaper. Local restaurant not worth all the hoopla that the locals give it.

The ice cream and milkshakes are wonderful and large! I wouldn't recommend the food here though. Just the ice cream.

It's a great place to go, they are famous for their ice cream, milkshake, their bologna sandwiches are great, have great sandwiches, and they stay very busy.
