    We met friends from out of town here and enjoyed the view as well as the delicious dinner. Since my husband and I arrived early, we went to the bar and our friends joined us there. Within a few minutes the hostess came by for us to go to our table. We were pleased to have a table by the window, even though we had not requested it. The food was very good, and we had pleasant wait staff both in the bar and in the restaurant. The evening went smoothly; we had no complaints, and we will dine there again.

    We took some neighbors out for a " thank you dinner" prior to our out of state move. We all had a great 3 hours at Anthony's. We appreciated not being rushed so we could enjoy an extended chat over a second glass of wine. The food was outstanding and the service impeccable. Anthony's is a classy place. They have always been able to balance value with consistency. We highly recommend them

    Had early dinner with friends to avoid Friday rush hour traffic. The Dungeness crab stack appetizer was amazing! The dinner specials had good variety but only seafood appetizers. 5pm was too late to get a table on the deck, but our booth actually had a better view over the breakwater. Our server Gloria was nice but didn't refill water glasses on a hot day without prompting. Note to management - dark blue water glasses mean the level is not visible to a busy server dashing between tables.

    We do not get to Anthony's as much as I used to about 20 years ago. It remains a wonderful setting and great food. We had some out of town company fly in and wanted to take them someplace with a great view. Anthony's in Des Moines was our first choice. The food and service were great. Our friends could not stop talking about the great view. We will be back soon.

    Live within walking distance of this fabulous restaurant and it is my go-to place when visitors come to town. I have never been disappointed with the food, service, or cleanliness of the restaurant. Yes, Anthony's is a chain, however, the Des Moines Anthony's feels like a try hometown restaurant.

    We went for my mother's birthday as we have in the past since we love this restaurant so much. Everything we ordered was delicious! Pan fried oysters are always perfectly cooked. Salmon, chowder and tempura prawns were all delicious. We had a berry cheesecake and a berry shortcake for dessert and the berries were so fresh and sweet. All around we were impressed by the excellent service and the food. We will definitely be back again. Also happy hour is amazingly well priced!!

We had a corner window table with unobstructed views of Puget Sound. Food and drink was all outstanding. I look forward to celebrating future events at Anthony's in Des Moines!

    Have eaten at several Anthony's and they never disappoint. Our party of four had a baked seafood and artichoke dip with toasted baguette rounds for dipping. Very good. We also had seasonal salads and chowder, also good. Two of us had Alaskan salmon, one had swordfish and one the crab cakes. All very tasty, however, the salmon was served over puréed potatoes, which we didn't care for with fish. Would have been better with a pilau or risotto. The only negative was that we were seated by the window overlooking the harbor. Normally that would be lovely, but at 6:30 pm in July the sun was still hot and enveloped our whole table making us squint and perspire. Those blinds that block the glare but not the view would have been a relief.

    First time reading at the Des Moines location of Anthony's. The location and view are stunning. Food was good without being spectacular (given the office), service was great. Overall the experience was awesome if you are not too price sensitive. Let's be clear, you are buying the view and experience, and it is worth it!

    My husband and I dined at this restaurant last Saturday night. The food was great and also the desert! We had reservations at 6:30pm but was surprised to see how crowded it was. It took a little longer to get our drinks and food then usual but was worth waiting for. This restaurant will always be on the top of my list.

    My husband's and my extended family came to celebrate my husband's graduate school graduation. We had a party if 20. The staff was great at refilling drinks and splitting up the check for us. They really made his night special. The only tiny flaw was we were in front of the upstairs windows and there were no blinds so the half of us facing the window wore our sunglasses. It was a great evening and we would definitely do this again!

    Dined on 5/31/2014
    At our table of four for dinner, three of us had the planked Copper River salmon. The fourth had the only chicken dish on the menus, a chicken burger from the bar menu. The burger was taken off our bill after the first one went back due to the hair in the sandwich. The salmon was great, even given the $30 price tag. However, it came without a salad and without dinner rolls. When a table is spending over 100 bucks in a mid-level restaurant, you should expect a few accompaniments.

    The view is gorgeous and the food is very good-to-great. The wait staff was attentive yet unobtrusive. The noise level is more manageable than most restaurants these days so one does not have to shout in order to carry on a conversation. Ideal for a business lunch or a special dinner. Surprisingly close to the rest of the world given its feeling of being set apart from it.

    I had two co-workers from Austin, Texas in Seattle for a day. We met with a customer during the day and I took them to Anthony's for dinner as I knew it would offer a number of Seattle experiences (the waterfront scenery, a better than average menu, an adequate wine list and better than average service). Anthony's did not let me down. My co-workers enjoyed the view and their dinners. A bonus for me was it was the first day they had Copper River Salmon on the menu!

    I had requested reservations for 4 at 5:45p at least 3 weeks in advance and since it was a double special occasion, a table by the windows for the view. We were shown to a booth (doesn't work for some of oldies, as there is a high step up to get into the booth) and I again requested a table where we would have a view. We were placed in a section of tables so closely squeezed together the waitress could hardly get around to serve. By time we were ready to leave at 7:00p the noise level was so bad, we couldn't hear each other; we could hardly get out of our chairs to get up. It was a pleasure to leave. They need to reduce that area by one 4 place table and reduce the money making properties obvious by it's presence. Downstairs calmer.

    Took my wife here for Mothers Day since our children live out of state. Hostess staff and waiter need more training to make the guests feel welcome, holiday or not. The Seafood Omelette and South of the Boarder Scramble were very good as was the Blueberry coffee cake. The fresh fruit could have been a little riper. As the title says the service from our waiter could have been a lot better, seemed like a bus person was promoted to wait staff for the holiday.

    This place has been here forever and has always been one of the best restaurants in the area. We seem to keep coming back even though it is further to drive than many other great restaurants in the Seattle Tacoma area. The food and service were impeccable and the view of the harbor and marina are fantastic.
