Overall Rating: 4
Tony’s Grill and Sushi Bar doesn’t look like much in an old part of Layton.  Being right off the interstate and the great food make it well worth the trip.  Their all-you-can-eat sushi lunch and dinner is reasonably priced and the quality is worth the price.  The restaurant looks like an old time Utah building, but inside is a nicely decorated restaurant with spacious booths and nice decorations. The food was well prepared and the building was clean. I will absolutely be back to this great sushi bar.Food
Quality: 4
The rolls are all excellent and nicely sized with fresh ingredients. While not all the dishes had the extra touches of some of the five star restaurants this place is four star and all you can eat which typically don’t go together.  All the food was good, without any fishy smell and the fish just melted in my mouth.  They are right down the street from a fish market so freshness seems to be top of their list.My wife tried out the Bento Box with Teriyaki Chicken and she liked it a lot.  She said the sauce was tasty and wasn’t too think or runny like some places.  I started off with the Crazy Maki and Idaho Maki roll.  Tony recommended the Crazy and since I’m an Idaho native I had to give the Idaho Maki a try.  It has tempura sweet potato and was crunchy and tasty.  Great vegetarian dish too.  The Crazy had big pieces of shrimp and was tasty but not out of this world.  I was then drawn in by the Spicy Fantail Shrimp nigiri which was worth the visit by itself.  The shrimp was tender and juicy with crab slivers on top and some spicy sauce made the dish perfect.  To finish things off I tried the  Fuji roll and went out on a limb for my first true nigiri with the Escolar.  My partner is the sushi master and is teaching this padawan the ways of sushi.  The Fuji claims a citrus wasabi sauce with spicy tuna.  I didn’t taste as much citrus as I would have liked and so the roll was just medium for me.  The escolar was better than I imagined.  It was a nice chunk of tuna that melted in my mouth.  The flavor wasn’t overpowering and the texture while tender wasn’t too mushy.  A little soy sauce and wasabi tops this off rather nicely.
Cleanliness: 4
The restaurant has only been opened a short time and everything was new and clean.   It felt like an old-time malt shop meets the modern day with a sushi flair.  Nothing to worry about here, everything is nice.
Service: 4
The service was good and Tony himself waited on us.  The chef actually came out and talked to us to see how the food was.  In many all-you-can-eat restaurants you can feel like the staff is trying to pace you, but here I never felt that.  They were sure to offer the miso soup and edamame but not in an obnoxious or overt way.  I never wanted for water and the rolls and nigiri kept coming.  Which was all good.  Tony talked to us and invited us back for more another time.  They were all friendly and made us feel welcome.
Price: 4
The price is typical for an all you can eat sushi bar.  $15 for lunch all you can eat is a fair price as you’d pay that for two rolls at other restaurants.
