We've been there twice in the last 2 weeks. Dirty Absolute. Martini perfect. Instead a serving in a glass and spilling everywhere, making the server a wreck. It was brought in the shaker. Didn't loose a drop. Also ordered a beer and was asked would you like a glass? Nice touch. Ordered the Cajun burger med rare with hot and... More

As I have always enjoyed stopping into unique places, this is a frequent stop. The menu is superb and the variety is exquisite. Most patrons visit for the enormous salad bar, but don't sell your self short. The chef has many specials that are mind blowing, he changes things up almost every month. I can only say that the French... More

My first trip to J. Anthiny's will be just one of many after the wonderful experience we had. Not only was everyone pleasant and accomodating, the food was all obviously from scratch, and so fresh and perfectly prepared. The patio is comfortable and well laid out. Can't wait to go back in summer when the fire pit is ablaze. I... More

We like it there, the food is good, but it's best in the bar area for service. Both times we've tried the dining room we were disappointed.

This is always a spot we look forward to for a break from Holiday shopping. We always sit in the bar area, enjoy wonderful pub food, play Keno and interact with other guests. The food is not gourmet, if that's what you're looking for, you need to go elsewhere. But, if you are looking for is a great place to... More

We made a trip to Charlton and missed lunch so stopped in for an early dinner. This was a nice surprise. The atmosphere was welcoming and had a touch of elegance. The restaurant was clean. The prices were surprisingly reasonable. The server was very pleasant. The wait for the meal was a little longer than expected, but it was New... More
