UPDATE 06/11 : Since 1953, Tony's on the Pier has been a familiar and favorite eating place on the Redondo Beach Pier. Even after the great pier fire in 1988 which destroyed two-thirds of the pier, Old Tony's survived and its neon sign was lit just as bright as before.

According to this article, the City is looking to spur revitalization with new investment, so existing businesses like Tony's will not have their long term leases extended. To answer questions or concerns about the fate of Old Tony's on the Pier whose lease expires next February, email the Redondo Beach City Council. Many thanks to Adriene Biondo for alert. 06-11
