You can't beat the view! Lots of marine activity with a ferry, sailboats and waterfowl. Nice bar area in the raised platform a few steps higher than the eating area. Fare at this eatery is consistentlypredictable, but not wow. Casual dining in relaxed environs. When busy the room tends to be loud, so ask for a seat off to the... More

While every seat at Anthony's is a good one, and we have had good food there in the past, our most recent visit was a disappointment. My dad ordered the fried oysters. They were soggy and very sad. My daughter and I had shrimp, which was okay, but needed more seasoning. My husband had steak, which was pretty tough. Maybe... More

With husband being disabled we live to get to go from here. Their food is excellent at a great price. If dining in it has a wonderful view of the sound. Majority of the time service is beyond excellent

Anthony's at Point Defiance has always been one of our favorites. Recently we went for lunch on a weekday at about 1 o'clock. We wanted to go a little later so as to avoid the major lunch hour crowd. The restaurant was not crowded when we arrived and were seated at a window table with a view of the ferry... More

the place is VERY loud. That's my only complaint. We've had lunch here twice in the past three weeks. Our servers were very friendly and attentive and the food was good. I had the seafood platter both times (tempura salmon, cod, prawns, calamari, onion rings, and zucchini and my wife had clam chowder (guess who's the lighter eater?). There is... More

We have often dined at this restaurant and have liked our meal. Nothing special but its a great place to take out of town friends for the view. Never have had a super meal, just ok..

Fabulous waterfront view, watch the Vashon ferry and eat great fresh seafood. Their clams are by far the best clams anywhere. Copper river alder plank salmon was amazing. Wonderful fresh oysters and great local wine.

First off, our waitress Ali was incredible! She is the only reason this is not a worse rating. After prompt service of beverages & appetizer, we then waited 30+ minutes for our entrees...while hearing all of the servers at the register complaining about the backlog in the kitchen and how everyone was afraid to go in there because of one...

I dined here with a colleague in early April. It was one of the first, clear sunny days of the year and a perfect day to enjoy the waterfront view. Prices are quite high - what you'd expect to see at a fine dining establishment. But the atmosphere and service at Anthony's are more cafe-like. Our server was pleasant, but... More
