Love the pots of mixed seafood... Cooked very well, prices have gone up since the last time I was in the area but still the place to be. Recommend the chowder as well.

Every town in the US should have an Anthony's. When the most enjoyable part of a trip to Newport, RI is actually found in the next town, that's a novelty. Anthony's is a no frills sea food store with a relatively small restaurant attached. It was featured on Diners, Drive Ins and Dives on the Food Channel and for good... More

stopped by to check out the seafood market. Nice selection. the fish and chips were delicious! and the burger was freshly made as well. It clearly must be a very busy place in season as there were signs everywhere pointing patrons were to order and where to wait. Staff was friendly as well! Would def return

First time visiting - after seeing the positive reviews we decided to give it a try. We were on a weekend away with daughter, son in law and our new granddaughter who is about 2 months old so we were looking for a casual place to go with the baby. When you enter you see the seafood store counter but... More

Was in town for 2 days and planned to eat there every day. I'd been there before and was looking forward to it. They did not disappoint. The first day I had the boiled lobster dinner that was great. The next day, I did the oyster sampler where they even went so far as to write down the names of... More

We really have enjoyed this place, in the past. The chowder is delicious. The boiled lobster is like any other place. Their version of baked seafood is described as containing chunks of lobster. The last time we went, truly no lobster could be found in this overpriced place that has a wait out the door due to it's popularity in... More

Anthony's have the freshest seafood anywhere. Their dining room and seafood market are in the same place. Lunch lines are long, but move quickly. They are doing great job with simple and tasty seafood menu.

As others have said, this place is about the food. I was impressed that despite having some fried food late on a Friday night, it was not greasy or oily tasting or smelling. The Portuguese clam chowder was very good. They add chorizo to a good New England clam chowder which kicks up the spiciness and makes it very interesting.... More

We ate here on a recent visit to Newport. This not a classy restaurant, more like a seafood shack, but the food was good. The Portuguese fish chowder was great! I would eat there again.

The seafood is fresh and reasonably priced, the oyster are delicious followed by the very tasty and oh so loaded with crab, cakes. The New England clam chowder was wonderful, no pepper needed.
