Anthony's at Pt Defiance is our favorite, and the one we come to most often. The food is great and the views of the Bay and the boats is delightful.

The best place for fried fish in the south sound has always been Anthony's at Point Defiance. I say this with 25+ years of restaurant experience in the area. Their fish has always been firm, lightly breaded/tempura and delicious. Their fries used to be average....More

Anthony's is what you think of when speaking of a waterfront restaurant. Large glass windows overlooking the bay. A good selection of seafood, and a somewhat crowded but still cozy and romantic. Just shy of Point Defiance, Anthony's is a standout among a bevy of...More

I don't like to give Anthony's a mediocre review, but its sister restaurant, Chinook's in Seattle prepares the same menu much better. It's hard to beat the view, however, and you will get decent preparations...even though they're not exciting. I would recommend Lobster Shop over...More

Anthony's has a reputation for good food. But this Anthony's has a great "flow show" if you dine at the bar overlooking the open kitchen. Our chef opposite our seats was great. Informative and funny...and judging from the huge filet of trout he cooked, a...More
