Ate here twice while taking in Pt. DEFIANCE 5 mile loop on two dates. Both lunch and dinner had good service, food and drinks. Indoor seating or outside but plan for the sun. You can watch harbor seals and the ferry runs.

Spent a week in the Seattle/Tacoma area and ate at a lot of places but this one was my favorite. The food was outstanding, the service was great, and the view of the Puget Sound was incredible. Highly recommend this one.

We split the sampler plate. It had the best calamari I have ever eaten. Not chewy at all. The Cole slaw has a good flavor but is a little hard to eat because it is cut in long shreds. The peach leamonaid is wonderful. So...More

First of all, Anthony's is sitting right on the water next to the ferries so you watch them go across to the island and back. The restaurant is set inside so you have a view no matter where you sit. You can have a booth...More

We really enjoyed our dinner here. The early evening was sunny and bright and the view of the ferry crossing over to Vashon was picturesque. The food was good and the service was too. Two of us ordered off the "Sunset Menu" that included four...More

A very nice restaurant with great views of the sound. Service was exceptional. However, the food was a mixed bag and expensive. The sides were overcooked (snap peas) or bland/undercooked (rice drizzled with a teriyaki type sauce). The appetizers were excellent - both the Clam...More

Anthony's is right on the waterfront next to the ferry terminal. We sat outdoors and enjoyed all the water traffic. My grandson loved his steamed clams while I enjoyed my prawn dish.they were a bit overcooked, but the view made up for it.
