Yesterday evening about 8 pm we were returning from a wonderful hot summer day at the tennis tournament in Newport. We decided to drop by Anthony's Seafood in Middletown, one of our favorites.

We usually meet friends here weekly. Professional, friendly staff. Food is always good and plenty of it. Other customers are always very friendly. Neighborhood type atmosphere. The shrimp nachos with wantons are different and excellent.

Very friendly family restaurant, though a little pricey for families and considering regular seafood fare. Food is okay, though not the best in the area. Good bar and live music at night on weekends.

We discovered Scampi a few years ago and have returned each time we are in the area. The service is prompt and friendly. The food is very good. The prices are fair. Casual atmosphere near the water on Island Park. Consistent and friendly.
