July Newsletter

Stagecoach Inns In the 1700’s, when stagecoaches were a popular means of travel, stagecoach inns were vital in giving customers rest and rejuvenation. Food was often simple–oatcakes, onions, cheese, potted char, anchovy sauce, moulded jelly puddings–some of which, quite frankly, does not sound appetizing in any century. In today’s era, July is often a busy month for vacations. Think of Tony’s as your modern-day stagecoach stop. Your pre, post and mid travel meals should not add any stress to your vacation adventures. Plan these meals at Tony’s–comfortable surroundings, delicious modern fare, served with our award-winning hospitality—with no potted char in

Father’s Day June 18 We received an anonymous message from a father to his family and thought we would share it with you: Dear kids, For Father’s Day, I don’t want to stand outside in 150-degree weather, grilling my own steak. I want a perfectly prepared meal with great sides and a good bottle of wine; I’m even prepared to pick up the tab. You can certainly buy me a tie, golf balls or a mug as long as you give them to me while I am dining in the comfort of Tony’s. They say it’s the thought that counts–think

Steak, Meat Your Maker A great steak is, well, a great steak. But when a great steak is given to a talented chef, it transforms into something otherworldly.

January Newsletter

Ushering In January Our modern-day January was originally named for the Roman god Janus. Janus has two heads–one to look back to the last year and one to look forward to the new one. Janus is considered the master of beginnings as getting the new year off to a good start was very important to the Romans. In ancient Roman times, people decorated their homes, gave each other gifts, and held elaborate feasts. We invite you to hold your January feasts at our place. Our resident Roman–Tony–would be pleased to share in the festivities and help you get your new
