“Great food- always consistent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

I love Anthony's restaurant for well prepared and fresh seafood dishes. The fish could come from the water right in front of the windows, it tastes so fresh. I go often for happy hour and dinner and am always satisfied.

“Excellent in every way!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

We eat at Anthony's whenever we are in Bellingham visiting our daughter at WWU. Yes, it's a bit spendy but the food is excellent, the service is top-notch, and the atmosphere is magnificent. View of the marina and San Juan Islands as a backdrop. Be sure to make a reservation, and ask for a table by the windows. The thing I really like about this restaurant is that you never feel rushed. You can have the table for the whole evening if you like. We also like their Fireside Grill which is a little further down the same road, has an even better view, is a little less spendy, but is more trendy and can be very crowded. Would absolutely recommend either place.

“Lunch with a marina view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2013

Stopped at Anthony's for lunch while on vacation. We were seated at a table by the window with a lovely marina view. Anthony's has a very efficient lunch menu -- good selections that are limited to a nice variety of choices. For some reason, our party of three all ordered the Caesar calamari salad. The waitress brought us warm sourdough bread to start with while we waited for our entrees.

Our entree salad was perfect for each of us and was delicious. We opted out of dessert as it was later in the afternoon, towards dinner. Would definitely go there again and try another of their selections.

“Great Out-door Dining”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2013

We were ending our trip and crashing at a local motel before flying home. Needing some place for dinner we choose Anthony's because it was by the water. It turned out to be a wonderful way to end a great vacation. There are huge windows inside to see the marina and two level outdoor eating area. The service was excellent, the sea food very good and prices we reasonable. It was very busy and it appeared to be a place where locals eat. It is a little hard to find, confusing even our GPS but just keep heading to the downtown Bellingham Harbor area. It is worth the driving adventure

“HAPPY HOUR IS THE BEST”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

This is the place to say to friends "let's meet for HAPPY HOUR. They have a half price drinks menu and amazing small plates of a variety of seafood nibbbles, priced reasonably and so you enjoy ordering and eating lots and washing it all down with the drink of your choice. I paid for 4 of the group of 8 and it was $125 and that was drinks at a good clip and enough food to stop us all wanting more. Every time I go to Bellingham it has become a meeting place for "the group". Buzzy atmosphere, always had great service and my Bellinghampster friend has bencome such a regular she doesn't have to ask for the special requests i.e. mayo on the side. View out over the marina, amazing sunsets which appeals after a hard day at the 'coal front'.
