Humuhumu’s description

Tony's on the Pier (also sometimes called "Old Tony's") was opened by Anthony A. Trutanich, a World War II veteran and former San Pedro fisherman, on Redondo Beach's Fisherman's Wharf in 1952. Tony's started out as a simple shack, expanding the dining room in 1961, and adding a crow's nest-like bar on top of the building in 1965.
The restaurant has open-air sliding windows opening out to waterside views, and the bar in particular has stunning 360-degree views around Palos Verdes and out over the Pacific Ocean.
Tony's decor is nautical rather than tiki, but the preserved midcentury furnishings, fishnet-covered ceilings and large fish floats will make Polynesian Pop lovers feel right at home. They serve a Mai Tai that comes in a souvenir glass.

Tonyís is a nice enough venue if you are looking for some sit down boardwalk food and a drink or two. There are tiki elements, mostly specific to the bar rather than the rest of restaurant which has more of a beach/surf feel to it. Their menu is a pretty extensive collection of seafood with a smattering of other entrees. Nothing really stood out as particularly reminiscent of the old Polynesian restaurants though. The view was great. Service was better than than average: friendly, courteous, helpful. Unfortunately although they are known for their Mai Tai neither of us that ordered them was impressed. We were both looking for something a little more complex.
Would be willing to give it another try at some point - Iím willing to believe that another night might change my impressions.

Visited in January 2018. Live music was great and the view from the upstairs bar was too. More of a step back into the 1960's than a tiki bar....but the mai tai was excellent! Free glass when you order the mai tai was the main reason I went.

fantastic mai tai, and the food was delicious. the waves crashing against the pilings adding to the wild natural feeling and seeing the waves rush by while eating is awesome
