Fantastic seafood!

We are from the Midwest and always prefer to go where the locals go for seafood, which is usually a more casual place. We actually visited Anthony's three times during our week in Newport! We had no wait time issues because we went for lunch or late-lunch. The staff was very pleasant & even joked... read more

By far the best seafood menu in the Newport RI area. The clam chowder was the best we've ever had and we have been around. The prices are reasonable and the staff very friendly. Don't miss this place. A local favorite!

We needed a casual spot for lunch after a day of touring before returning to our hotel in Middletown. This place fit the bill and the reviews I read on TA were positive. We waited in line outside, and again inside to order our food. We did get lucky with an outside table on the covered patio. We were close... More

All seafood was fresh and made to order. Not a fancy place but food was delicious. Employees were so friendly and helpful in making sure that you got your food and seeing if you needed anything else. Need to get there early as they close early and there are lines.

We had read good things about Anthony's, and they lived up to their reputation. All of the food we had was excellent. Fish and Chips, NE Clam Chowder, and Seafood Nantucket. A large carafe of water was on the table. After eating, I went up to the counter to ask for a business card, so I had the details to... More

This little gem wil not disappoint any appetite with the love for fresh seafood. It is a bit out of the way, yet well worth driving to from anywhere in Rhode Island. The oysters were off the boat as were every piece of fish on the menu. We had the Portugeuse soup, oysters on the half shell and one salmon... More

Pretty good, I had the stuffie which was pretty good but I have had better in Newport. What I liked most about Anthony's was that it was where the locals go and not the tourists. I have never seen a restaurant operate the way Anthony's does. It was fine, just different.

It you go to this place be sure to get the Portuguese fish chowder, it is orgasmic! Came down from Providence several times just for a bowl of this soup.... It's like soup Nazi good.
