The menu had a good variety of seafood and steaks. The service and prices were really good. Loved the desserts.

The food was wonderful and the wine exquisite. I had lobster tails and the wife had sea bass washed down with a NZ Sav Blanc

We shared a lunch time with friends from Tucson who had suggested Anthony's and we found it delightful and with a bonus of a great bay view. We all tried different items off the menu and everyone was very impressed with the quality and presentation. Good job!!

The view of the ocean was just awesome! Clam chowder was really good. I will definitely go back to get a big bowl of it! We had fish and chips too which was yummy too.

The limited menu for Restaurant Week luncheon included salads or fish, calamari, and chips as well as a choice of chocolate mousse or zabaglione for dessert. The two-course meal is $10. Service is friendly and attentive. The seafood is fresh and tasty.

Everything was set up for a beautiful lunch. We had a gorgeous view, a friendly waiter and a long holiday in California to enjoy. I ordered a fish dish and my husband a shrimp cocktail. My husband loved his cocktail (and is still reminiscing about it). However, my fish was covered in bread and fried in oil (“pannerad” in Swedish).... More

I've eaten here many times and the food and service are always top notch. Try to request a window table if possible. Of course, once the sun goes down it doesn't matter!

We recently took a day trip to San Diego from Palm Springs and quite by accident drove by Anthony's Seafood Grotto. I had been there almost 33 years ago and remembered such a special dining experience. Trying to recreate that just didn't work. Although the food was good, the ambiance is gone...the place is dated and was all but empty,... More

We love going here whenever we are in town. It is so nice to sit and watch the boats go by and just enjoy the harbor. The food and service are always good and we tried some new items this time and they were excellent. We will definitely be back again.

The food quality was excellent, very fresh, with good portions at a moderate price. The take-out chowder was outstanding the next day in our hotel. Dockside location was excellent. We will definitely return again and again!
