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.

How to find it

Tony's is on Redondo Beach's Fisherman's Wharf. Look for the restaurant with the octagonal crow's nest, and the large Tony's sign.


Fisherman's Wharf has a paid parking lot.

Very old school, great views and location, big menu, fair drinks. Everyone enjoyed themselves and will come again.

They make their Mai Tai's like they do in Hawaii...without grenadine and with crushed ice. A proper Mai Tai should never be really sweet. YUM! Great ocean/pier views too
