Tony C’s Sports Bar & Grill, a popular sports bar with four existing locations throughout the Greater Boston area, has opened its fifth outpost at the Northshore Mall in Peabody. Located at 210 Andover Street, the 7,700-square-foot venue offers an unparalleled sports viewing experience with an extensive menu of American comfort food, 40 beers on tap, and more than 70 high-definition TVs throughout the restaurant and outdoor patio.
Named in honor of Red Sox legend and North Shore native, Tony Conigliaro, Tony C’s Sports Bar & Grill in Peabody elevates the typical sports viewing experience by offering guests the best of both worlds. Sports fans will have front-row seats to every game with the restaurant’s four-sided Jumbotron TV display, large central bar, and split-level seating, while a private dining room offers a more intimate experience for up to 38 seated guests. Dine and socialize both inside and out thanks to the floor-to-ceiling accordion windows along the restaurant’s front side, which open up onto the 817-square-foot patio overlooking the new outdoor performance stage on the Northshore Mall’s Promenade. Up to 54 guests can dine al fresco in comfort on the mix of lounge and dining furniture while eight HD-TVs, ceiling fans, and heat capabilities complete the experience.
The restaurant’s décor pays homage to Tony Conigliaro and Fenway Park through the black and white photographs dotting the walls, but the sleek and modern interior is accentuated by a massive, illuminated marquee of Tony C’s number 25 spanning the private dining room ceiling, which serves as one of the restaurant’s most notable characteristics.
Executive chef Steve Walsh heads the kitchen at Tony C’s Sports Bar & Grill at the Northshore Mall, with a focus on incorporating fresh, mainly local ingredients into the menu of American comfort food and game day staples. A graduate of Le Cordon Bleu in Cambridge, chef Walsh became an executive chef at age 22 and spent years with the Tavistock Restaurant Collection, formerly the Back Bay Restaurant Group, at both Joe’s American Bar & Grill and The Atlantic Fish Company before joining the Cronin Group as executive chef.
