Wonderful atmosphere, fabulous food!

My husband and I ate here on the Sunday of Valentine's Day weekend. The meal started with some bread and butter. Delicious! I started with shrimp cocktail. It was yummy, although the cocktail sauce was too spicy for me. We each had a salad -- iceberg wedge with blue cheese, caesar salad. Both... read more

The restaurant is spacious, attractive, comfortable and atmospheric. But I knew we were in trouble when our drink order did not arrive for at least 15 minutes. Most of the food was great, including the New England Clam Chowder, clams casino, and creamed spinach. But we waited an hour for the clams even though the restaurant was not crowded. The... More

We dined here the week before Christmas. It was around 8 and it was nearly empty. You would expect it to be much busier this time of year. But it was the only restaurant we could get reservations that day. My son had the Clam Chowder that he said was very good. And my husband and I split the special... More

what they did to that "absolutely best quality prime strip" as the waitress had described the special steak of the day ($44.95) should have gotten someone waterboarded. We ordered it medium rare, which should have been red in color, but the steak came medium or medium well, brown with just a faint ribbon of rose in the middle. The marbling,... More

We like Carmen Anthony's for special occasions. Went last Saturday for our anniversary. Started out with the fried calamari for an appetizer. It was a generous portion and tasted fresh. It was served with hot peppers and a lemon wedge. For our entrees we both had the filet and we shared 2 sides – the garlic mashed potatoes and creamed... More

Many great meals here. A little pricey but you get what you pay for. Wonderful specialty drinks including a martini with a flashing ice cube. Outstanding steaks. Bread pudding to die for.

Have been a few times. Steaks are always great. Typical upscale steakhouse with great side dishes, salads and desserts. Not an every week type restaurant but great for the special occasions.
