What a nice meal we had at Anthony J's on a Sunday evening in late September. It was still warm enough for the windows to be open, and our table in the little room to the left of the entrance caught the breeze. The lights were dim, and not a TV in sight! Amen and halleluiah! Menus appeared and the... More

Every Summer, we spend a fair amount of weekends in Watch Hill, R.I. and generally stay at hotels in Mystic. The question of "where to go for dinner tonight" is never difficult for us. We almost always have a dinner each weekend at "A.J's. Their new, outside patio is just a perfect, romantic setting for enjoying a really delicious, romantic... More

We've been going for years and the quality never varies from great. Italian dishes, some creative, some classic, with daily specials. Try the hot rocks where dinner cooks on your table before your eyes.

Great food, interesting menu. Daily specials. Outdoor seating. Just across draw bridge, short stroll, friendly staff! Salad could have had fresher greens but meals were full of flavor, hot and well prepared and presented. .

Great Italian food! Would definitely go again! I had some baked penne pasta and it was magnifico! My husband had something similar. Great service, great food and great ambiance. All worth the prices.

While working in the area, locals referred Anthony J's for good Italian food. They couldn't have been more right. I had the chicken parm and loved it, so much I went back a second night and tried the bolognaise, it also was very good and filling. The restaurant is a little tight on space, but warm and friendly. The food... More

First you get some varm breed with butter and a garlic oil. The we had a very tender and juice lamb schank with mash potatoes and a lobster salat with green asparagus, artichoc and a hot dijon dressing... The service was very friendly and enjoyable.....

My husband loved his filet mignon meal and the kids seemed to like their pizza. My meal was a scallops/risotto special. It was good but not very flavorful. Not my favorite scallop meal. One major issue was it was really muggy outside and very hot in the restaurant. The wait staff had to be asked to put the AC on... More

One of the best menus in Mystic. It's a bit off the Main Street in town, but is a local favorite. You know it's good if the locals go!
