Restaurant Review

Tony's Baltimore Grille, an Atlantic City long time favorite for over 60 years,

It's a popular spot for late-night crowd, locals, cops, shift-workers and the occasional celebrity. Open 24 hous/day, it's attracts many late arriving gamblers --- it's one of the few restaurants where you can get a reasonably priced meal in the early A.M. They are noted for their pizza and traditional Italian dishes, at a very low price.

It's a change of pace to the glitzy or elegant Italian restaurants found in the casinos. The atmosphere is like a South Philly neighborhood restaurant with in a white stucco building with red shutters, and the interior having a bar on one side and the dining room filled with jukeboxes at each booth and square tables.

This is a New Jersey dining experience that's inexpensive, and dependable.

In addition the the pizzas, Tony's serves up generous portions of basic pastas, meatball platters and a good Seafood Special with fried shrimp, crab cakes, scallops, fries and cole slaw.

However, under new management, it has lost a step in in food preparation and has dropped some of it's popular favorites from the menu that they built their reputation on.

The service is friendly and attentive.
