“Go for the view but not the food”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

The view is what you would expect at a seaside Maine eatery. The food was not so good. I had fried scallops and there were only 6 SMALL pieces on the plate. The shrimp was local and pretty good but everything tasted greasy. The salads were horrendous - old lettuces and bottle dressings. I probably won't go back even though it's right down the road.

“Diamond in the rough”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Anna's was suggested by the lady working in the visitors bureau in Bath as a great locals place to eat. She was right it was a real local flavor but the view was pretty spectacular. The food was very good and the service was good as well. A bit off the beaten path but worth the ride for the food and the view.

“The worst 40$ spent in Maine”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

The portions were VERY small and overpriced. The clam chowder was watery and had very small amount of food in it. The 'fish and chips' was like 'fried chicken', small bits in a hard batter. The fish in it was OK. The fried clams was just ok....Very disappointing. Only the view is nice. Will not return.

“go for the view and the lobster”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

The view is the star here. the food -- the lobster -- was great, but my haddock hash cakes were mostly breaded. The wines and beers are priced just right, and the servers were great. A lot of locals plus tourists were there, and it is a great place for lobster.
