Tony's Baltimore Grille, an Atlantic City long time favorite with the locals, is like going into a time warp.
This is a New Jersey dining experience that's inexpensive, and dependable where local families gather for good Italian cooking.
For the late arriving gamblers, it's one of the few restaurants where you can get a good meal in the early A.M. They are noted for their great pizza and traditional Italian dishes, at a very low price.
Their pizza crust is excellent, one of the best in South Jersey ---- light, chewy and crispy. The sauce slightly sweet and tangy.
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.
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.
The service is friendly and attentive.
