We were visiting the area and decided we wanted Lobster for dinner. Coming from the West Coast of Oregon it was a big deal to us. I looked up seafood restaurants in the Newport RI area and Anthony's was one of many. As we are driving there we read about it being featured on the TV show Diners, Drive-Ins and... More

On the drive down to Newport, we were looking for a good seafood place to stop at for lunch. We read about the reviews on Tripadvisor and it was rated #1 in Middleton. All 5 of us (ages 11 to 72) loved it. There was a twin lobster special for $28 which two of us shared. The lobster meat was... More

Not fancy, just good food. You place your order with the cashier who directs you to a table. The kitchen staff delivers directly to your table. A lot of locals eat here.

My Husband and I were visiting Newport and wanted to find a place to have a nice seafood dinner. We've eaten at most of the restaurants in Newport over the years and found that the food was good but the portion sizes were getting smaller and the prices were really inflating. One of the locals told us about Anthonys Seafood... More

I have tried many seafood places in the Newport area and this place is hands down the best. Probably my top 3 seafood restaurants in the country. It's casual... order at the counter and sit for table service, but the food is awesome. The fishermans platter was phenomenal. They use bay scallops but they were flavorful and tender. Both the...

Anthony's Seafood is not only a restaurant but it is a seafood market as well. Everything is the freshest it can be. It is a very casual place and very busy so be prepared to wait. It's worth it!!!! We went a little later and didn't wait as long as we thought we would and we also got a table... More

I grew up in New England, this restaurant is so New England! I can now only get back up to Portsmouth RI a few times a year, this place is always a required stop although it is no longer on the water front in Newport. The fried clams are real, not old tuff processed clams but real whole clams dipped... More

Me and my wife searched TripAdvisor mobile for a nearby seafood restaurant while staying in Newport. Anthony's got great reviews so we headed out there last Monday night around 8 o'clock. I was kind of taken aback when we walked in there because it looks like a seafood market and you pick up a menu and order off it to... More

We went to Anthony's on a Saturday night, so had to wait on line for about 30 minutes. We looked at the menu while waiting and had our selections ready when we finally made it to the counter. The seafood chowder, with its spiciness was awesome. We also had crab legs, salmon and fish and chips between us. They were... More

Anthony's had the best reviews on Yelp and so we went here for our first meal (lunch). Had to have steamers and my husband had to have lobster rolls. Both were good but no better than I have had in many other places. I would have loved a nice cup of clam broth but all they gave was a portion... More
