Small place, satisfying.

I must say this is a whole in the wall place. If you love fish, it is good but the ambiance isn't. This isn't a place I would go around the world to visit. Just sayin...however, the people were very nice and friendly. I would of rated it better if the place itself was remodeled some. The artwork on... read more

The place is clean and delicious. Unfortunately, I was unable to try the fish due to dietary issues at the time. I ended up getting all their vegetable side dishes. I must say they were very tasty and good portions. Also, I did get to taste the fish caldo my cousin purchased. It was spicy good. I plan on going... More

We had a large group at this restaurant, and the family fish platter was ordered for everyone. The service was reasonably fast, the food was excellent, and prices are reasonable.

After two week sin San Antonio eating bland and lumpen food, what joy to be taken to J Anthony's. A small unpretentious restaurant, with friendly staff (none of the fawning sycophantic nonsense so common in American restaurants) and homely and convivial atmosphere. The food , the foood .....SUPERB! Fresh ingredients, simply prepared, with subtle and delicious combinations of flavours. Definitely... More

My first visit to this restaurant will be my last. I had the grilled red snapper. I was very disappointed . It was obviously frozen and had been over cooked. The two other people with me were served their food and I waited an add'l 10 minutes to get my red snapper. The fish was tough and rubber like. I... More

When we first walked in, we were thinking it was going to be "fast food" style like long john silver's back home. We were wrong. :-) Prepared fresh and served on real plates! Fish chowder was great and so were the jalapeno hushpuppies (we ordered a 2nd round of the puppies!) If you want seafood and don't wan't to pay... More
