We have often dined at this restaurant and have liked our meal. Nothing special but its a great place to take out of town friends for the view. Never have had a super meal, just ok..

Fabulous waterfront view, watch the Vashon ferry and eat great fresh seafood. Their clams are by far the best clams anywhere. Copper river alder plank salmon was amazing. Wonderful fresh oysters and great local wine.

First off, our waitress Ali was incredible! She is the only reason this is not a worse rating. After prompt service of beverages & appetizer, we then waited 30+ minutes for our entrees...while hearing all of the servers at the register complaining about the backlog in the kitchen and how everyone was afraid to go in there because of one...

I dined here with a colleague in early April. It was one of the first, clear sunny days of the year and a perfect day to enjoy the waterfront view. Prices are quite high - what you'd expect to see at a fine dining establishment. But the atmosphere and service at Anthony's are more cafe-like. Our server was pleasant, but... More

Anthony's has several locations throughout the PNW, but this one is one of our favorites. With waterfront views, near the ferry port, and food that's fresh, local and tasty, what more is there to love? It can't be beat. Their food is some of the best seafood we have had since moving out here last year. Perhaps, that's why we... More

Monday they have a great all-you-can-eat fish and chips. The fish is the best in the South Sound by far. The chips are alright. The coleslaw is WORLD CLASS. I am making this a regular Monday night treat. Great views also. Do yourself a favor and eat here.

This is a nice place to eat if you have time and can get a seat at the window. The view is wonderful and the ferry comings and goings make it fun to watch. We had a hard time talking as the area was noisy. Wait staff was helpful and the food about average. They did have the seasonal fish... More

The food has taken a giant leap in the wrong direction. The service is in the same boat, The food and service used to be top notch , not so much so any longer. Even the drinks were bad missing simple things, what has happened?

Thanks to TripAdvisor, we booked this restaurant for dinner. We were lucky enough to get a window table -- the view, food, wine & service were wonderful.
