To begin, I have to say the food was excellent, the view spectacular and the waitress very nice. However, upon arrival we weren't met with a smile, nor did we receive any throughout the seating process. When we left, the maître d had stepped outside and was returning as we approached the door. In this type of restaurant (indeed in... More

We were really looking forward to enjoying a good seafood meal. Not so. Overpriced. Poor service. The place itself is like a huge blue barn. Lots of staff waiting around . When I booked in person I was told very rudely that there were NO reservations. Good service to the table, then we sat there and waited for the menu.... More

Part of the Anthony Athenas legacy, this seafood restaurant still remains one of the great seafood restaurants of the North Shore. The building has been impeccably maintained with the classic New England maritime sea shore charm, with a breathtaking view of the ocean, Nahant, and the Boston sky line in the distance. The food is just as notable as the... More

First class restaurant. Very good food and service. I don't understand some of the reviews!!! This restaurant is getting better and better every day. We see changes every time we go there. Can't wait till they open their patio.

When I was a kid (in the '80's) we always went to Anthony's for a special occasion and it was always memorable. Times really change though. We went to Anthony's and while the food was good (you pay for what you get), we went with quite a large party. The bill was over 500 bucks and my husband was still... More

Nice Valentines Day menu. We love this place and is getting better and better by day. I had the Lobster Salad and Veal Osso Bucco both to die for. My girlfriend had the pasta special which I tried and was great! Nice gesture giving the roses to the ladies in the way in. We will be back again.
