In 1982, we opened Tony Mandolaʼs Blue Oyster Bar on the Gulf Freeway, which we owned and operated for 22 years. A second Tony Mandolaʼs Blue Oyster Bar debuted on Shepherd in 1984, which we closed four years later in order to open our famous West Gray Tony Mandolaʼs flagship location.
Our lifelong dream of owning a freestanding restaurant became a reality with the opening of our new, permanent Tony Mandola’s location at 1212 Waugh Drive.
We take great pride in serving what we think is some of the best food on the Gulf Coast. Everything is homemade fresh in our kitchen daily and many of our dishes are our Mamas’ recipes.
God Bless our Mamas and God Bless you for your patronage.
“Dedicated to the preservation of the art of our Mamas’ Cooking.”
Tony & Phyllis Mandola
