Eight of us had dinner at Anjon’s on a tight schedule (we were a group of musicians on a concert tour and had a short dinner break before our show started). The staff understood that we were in a hurry, and they did a great job taking care of us. Unfortunately, the food was poor, portions small and prices high.... More

First the good. The food was above-average. The chicken dish that I ordered was cooked to order and flavorful. The antipasto was fair. The hostess was incredibly rude, mocked people in my party, rolled her eyes, and answered questions with half answers. We showed up 5 minutes late for our reservation. We waited for quite a bit after. How hard... More

We welcomed to the restaurant and seated almost as soon as we walked in. They were busy and almost all tables were taken down stairs. We were brought to the upper level of Anjon's. The view of the marsh was beautiful. The server was wonderful. It was our daughter's 13th birthday and he even put a candle in a canoli... More

Highly over raided. .no extras. 20 dollars plus for spaghetti no salad no nothing. Bad bathroom s.. highly rated sauce is no better than local dinner. Too bad could be a lot better... probably charge a lot because they don't expect u back?

I went to Anjon's while on vacation at Old Orchard Beach. The food was very good, the waitstaff was very attentive. Although the prices were a bit high, I got a ton of food for the money. I ordered Anjon's Alfredo and I'm easily getting 3 meals out of it. I would go again.

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
