Looking to score a favorite new place to eat and watch the game? Then check out Ocala’s brand new restaurant – Tony’s Sports Bar & Grill – Ocala, FL. The name says it all, containing the four key ingredients you need for a great night out while enjoying the game with family or friends: food, beer, sports – and Tony Li!
Its great location and 32 high-definition televisions, all 47 inches or larger and offering every game that is televised, will initially draw you into Tony’s Sports Bar and Grill.
But you’ll come back for its tasty menu, friendly and attentive servers and the 40 different selections of beer on draft. Yes, 40 different beers all on tap.
Of course there’s also the Tony reputation that will draw many in. This Tony is the same Tony Li who owns Tony’s Sushi, which for many is the go-to sushi place in Ocala. Tony and wife Jane are bringing their 12 years of successful restaurant experience there to this new sports bar. Talk about location, location, location! At 2711 SW 27th Ave., it’s right next to the Regal Hollywood 16 movie complex and Easy Street Family Fun Center and across from the Paddock Mall.
This location started as a sports bar many years ago and has since been a little of everything but Tony and Jane think it’s the perfect spot for their sports bar. Many are sure to agree.
“We wanted to have a sports bar, a fun place for everyone to hang out,” Tony said. “We think this is a great location.”
“It’s also a very family friendly sports bar,” Jane said, noting some families who had already come out during its first week in mid August.
