Tony’s on the Pier-South Bay
What: Tony’s on the Pier
Where: Redondo Beach
For: All Ages/Ages 21+ at Night
Tony’s on the Pier (aka ‘Old Tony’s’) is a restaurant and bar that allows guests to have an amazing seafood meal while sitting on the Pacific Ocean. I’ve been here a few times, once for the afterparty of a good friends’ wedding and once for a night out in Redondo Beach with Ethan.
The restaurant is situated on the pier and has large glass windows overlooking the ocean. It was especially nice that the décor of the restaurant was completely ocean themed. There were lobster traps, fishing nets and various sea creatures lining the walls. Tony’s is open for lunch and dinner, and menus are on the website. We had a pre-fixed course with soup and entrees. The chowder was amazing, and the clams were perfect. I really enjoyed the way Tony’s cooked and seasoned their seafood. It wasn’t too heavy so that we felt extremely full when I was finished, but it left us completely satisfied.
Top O’ Tony’s
If you walk up the stairs from the restaurant, there is a rooftop bar with live entertainment. The rooftop offers a full bar and a small amount of seating for guests. The bartenders were very kind and personable. There was trail mix on each table for patrons to enjoy while sipping their cocktails. The view of the Redondo Beach Harbor is best from the rooftop. Happy hour is offered during select dates and times (please check the website for specifics). The live entertainment has always been a great addition to the bar. Although the area is small, it felt very intimate with the musicians singing and playing their instruments close by.
The restaurant is open for all ages, with the rooftop bar reserved for ages 21 and over. The crowd is quieter at Tony’s, with most guests coming to enjoy the live music and ambiance of the restaurant. Parking for the restaurant is in a prepaid parking structure east of the pier. Keep in mind that if you decide to take an Uber or Lyft to the Redondo Beach Pier, cell service becomes extremely spotty (no matter which network), so you’ll have a difficult time getting out.
Lunch costs about $20 per person, excluding drinks. Dinner will run about $30 per person, again excluding drinks. At the top bar, cocktails are about $12 each. Since Tony’s is one of the few restaurants that overlooks the ocean, the price is definitely paid along with the location and quality of the food makes the restaurant and bar worth the price.
