Our server was the best she had a fantastic personality. We had a burger and Philly cheesesteak. Both were tasty and service was fast!! I would recommend this restaurant which has been around since 1987. We learned they have several other locations.

Not gourmet but the food was good if uninspired. The service was spotty when we were there but, then again, they were slammed. In spite of the crowd, the food was served in a reasonable length of time and the server was friendly and helpful.

Been quite some time since dining at Anthony's so decided to go. Unfortunately, it wasn't as I remembered it. Service is still good, the place is clean, but the six of us felt our lunches were mediocre. We did order off the lunch menu which had limited choices. Next time I will use the regular menu and hope for better food.

What a homey and friendly place. A recommendation from a local hotel clerk led us to this delightful diner. Friendly and helpful service from Christa was a bonus added to the delicious home made food. Great find!

On the road and passed through Salem, Virginia. The hotel recommended this place and I'm glad they did.

Very casual atmosphere. You would feel comfortable in a t-shirt and jeans.

Waitress was very attentive.

We opted for the BBQ plate (pulled pork BBQ, coleslaw, fruit) and my wife had a chicken salad plate with two good scoops of chicken salad, tomatoes, cucumber and some fruit. Both were excellent.

There is much on the menu: my BBQ plate was $7.29, wings are $7.29, mac and cheese is $4.79, a variety of salads like grilled chicken for $6.69 and chili taco for $6.69, fish and shrimp for $8.99, 1/2 pound bourbon chopped beefsteak, Italian dishes, lo carb options, wraps, burgers from $4 to $7 and then there's Anthony's Famous Subs for $6 to $7.

Beer was cold. Price was reasonable. What else can you ask for?!
