Been coming here for some time....it is my son's favorite restaurant. I like the Blackened Rock Fish Tacos and also the Alaskan True Cod Fish and Chips. Unlike other places, the fish and chips here aren't so greasy....more flavor, less grease!!!! The view is amazing....try to get a window seat. Watch the ferry boats come and go. Service is more...

I recently took my family of 6 to Anthony's for a special lunch before we went to the zoo. When we got there the place was empty, not a single person waiting and staff was standing around. I was informed that I had to have a reservation for 6 people and it would take them over an hour to be... More

Nothing but the best, only if you can have a conversation, du to the vas sound insulation, it would be wonderful, and interior upgrade wouldn't hurt....

Service was average and food was relatively expensive. BUT-you get a great view of Puget Sound from a window seat in the restaurant! After diner you can walk to the ferry terminal for a quick ride on a ferry boat to Vashon Island or walk down to Point Defiance Park.

Anthony's at Point Defiance sits in a superior location with stunning views of Puget Sound, the Olympic Mountains and Vashon Island. The Anthony's northwest cusine is always fresh with tried and true items as well as seasonal specialities. Its a great place to take out of town guests, or to escape for a scenic winter time lunch. A bit on... More

Wonderful seafood on a Monday evening. My friend and I had an early dinner here, the service was prompt, food delicious, my fish and chips was cooked just right. We were not disappointed like some recent reviews. We had a window table overlooking the waterfront and could watch the ferry come and go which is always interesting.

As a family we have been going to Anthony's for years on special occasions. Our last experience was disappointment. It was a Monday of a holiday weekend but they seemed to be short staffed. Our waitress was excellent but they only had three crabs in the house they were all gone. They only had three portions of a Wild Huckleberry... More

My boyfriend and I went here for a seafood dinner that would be awesome. It was terrible food and poor service. Neither of us enjoyed our meal especially for the price. And out service was not good either. I ended up going and getting our own things that we needed. We will never go again and do not recommend it.... More

Usually a restaurant is successful with good food and with multiple restaurants we thought it would be good. We were quite disappointed with this place. The first thing we noticed was it wasn't very clean and how badly it needs to be updated. The clam chowder tasted like it was from a can. I got the shrimp which was covered... More

After reading the reviews, it really could have gone either way. The place itself has such an amazing view that we were drawn in. When we walked in, it felt as though we were an inconvenience to the 3 girls standing at the hostess table. There was a 30 minute wait for the the patio so we chose to sit... More
