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. The coleslaw that comes with their fish and chips has always been phenomenal. It's my... 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 good seafood restaurants along the coast.

We had the Early Bird Special. The appetisers were shrimp cocktail and a flat cracker with bland mashed potato dwollop and a piece of salmon on top. There were a lot of shrimp with about a teaspoon of cocktail sauce on top. The fancy cracker could use something other than mashed potato on it. The caesar salad and chowder were... More

Hi Cathy-Jo! Thank you so much for your review. I am so sorry about the underwhelming experience you had with us recently! Our standard for food quality and presentation are typically much higher than you experienced and for that, I am so sorry!

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 Anthony's for this style of NW seafood experience. My last visit I sat in the... 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 great chef. And we still had a view out the windows to Vashon Island. Eating... More

I was in Tacoma for business in March, and as such was scouting the area for places to eat during my stay. My inquiries led me to Anthony's at Point Defiance, and as I told the person who recommended it to me, I could kiss her for pointing me in their direction. I lucked out and was graced with good...
