This abominable restaurant is closed. It has had a very bad word of mouth reputation since it opened and the one time we tried it was one of our worst dining experiences ever. Hopefully a decent restaurant will occupy this location soon.

We enjoyed Anthony's after spending the day at the beach. The view is AMAZING! Food was very good...we especially loved the pork quesadilla. The service was so-so but worth it for the view. I would go return if ever in the area!

Maybe I'm used to a different standard of service being from the main land. But the service I had here was clumsy. The staff was armature for the prices. However, the food was dilicious! And the dining atmosphere was uncommon. Waves were crashing just a...More

Great views and interesting menu choices. Good service, too! Unfortunately not much in the fresh fish department, but the beef filet oscar was delicious. As we live on island, we will likely return.

Anthony's is in one of the most spectacular settings of all the restaurants on Ali'i Drive. As such, it could be a big tourist draw, and apparently is. However, it is really refreshing that this is NOT a "tourist restaurant". We have plenty of those...More

We came back to kona anticipating a return to what was Jamison's and now Anthony's. Our only hope now is someone will buy the place that knows how to make a great location into a great experience again, because Anthony has no clue!! We wanted...More

Ate at Anthony's for valentines day. First, did not give us table that we wanted even though reservation was made well in advance. My husband had to send back overlooked Ahi. My linguine had no flavor whatsoever. Way overpriced . Will not return.
