We had a wonderful waitress, Danielle, who was very helpful and patient with us. My husband ordered Eggplant Parmesan, I had Shrimp Scampi and we ordered a Caesar Salad. The lunch was very good however, yes, I ordered seafood which I thought was only shrimp so we switched lunches. The atmosphere was very nice and we will return to pick... More

Came here during the 4th of July Weekend after a lifetime favorite (Wormwood's in Camp Ellis) closed permanently. I had to search thoroughly for an actual sit-down restaurant in this beach town that primarily has quick-service lobster pounds, clam huts, and the like. I took a look at their menu online before visiting and was definitely put off by the... More

We were headed out for dinner not knowing where to go, or what we were in the mood for. Relied on TripAdvisor for advise. As I was reading reviews, we just happened to be driving by Anjon's at the very same time, the parking lot was full, we figured we had nothing to lose. At first we were asked if... More

This Italians style restaurant is one of our favorite in the Old Orchard Beach area. It has a good variety of food choices. I had the steak and lobster special, while my wife had an Italian style teak. The employees were all very nice and totally polite. We will return again!

After reading a few scathing reviews, we were a bit apprehensive about trying Anjon's, but we had always wanted to give it a try. They were very accommodating, giving us a choice of tables,as I requested a quieter area (which you really never get at an Italian restaurant) and making special drinks. The waitress was great (Sammy). Our dinners, veal... More

We weren't expecting much from Anjon's but decided to go anyway since it was close to where we were staying. In all fairness our waitress was sweet enough but as it turns out terribly inexperienced. I was slightly annoyed by the fact that after having changed my mind about a cocktail before it was actually served (I decided to forego... More

Made our annual pilgrimage to the beach and had "the twins" at Anjon's. Twin lobsters with a side of pasta and sauce. We even come here in the winter when we're in town for a hockey game. Is it spectacular? No. But, it is predictable. Good food. Decent service. Easy to get to.

Nice, peaceful place. Great food and great view. We had stuffed mushrooms (Alfredo sauce on top!!), lobster stew (lots of huge pieces of lobster) onion soup, lasagna and fettuccini Alfredo with chicken. Both entrees were more than we could eat. This sauce is the best Alfredo we ha e ever eaten. This is a big restaurant and I would imagine... More

Open since the mid-50's, Anjon's remains great for traditional Italian food in a very nice setting. Real cloth tablecloths, warm surroundings and a full bar. Very good service. Perfectly sautéed fresh broccoli in olive oil, with or without garlic. Their veal Calabrese was one of the best veal dishes ever eaten- sautéed non-breaded veal scallops in olive oil topped with...

This place is great. The food is absolutely delicious. I ordered a pasta dish with mussels, shrimp, and scallops. I will be back for sure. Highly recommended.
