Food and service was good but......
The food and service was good but the booth was a little cramped. We have a party of 5 and it was a tight fit. Shame on me for not being asked to move. The service was excellent and the food was good. I would recommend and will ask for a larger table next time. I will be back.

Excellent place for dining.
We enjoyed dining at this restaurant. Anthony's Homeport is one of my favorite restaurant.

Wow! I am from Boston, MA and we wanted a scenic dinner. The view was stunning and we sat by the window. The appetizers--were amazing try the crab, avocado and mango salad, and the carb, shrimp, spinach dip. Dinner was good but appertizers were best.

They accommodated all of my requests and went above and beyond them. It was a wonderful dinner with great service.The food was fabulous and great for the price. Portions were a tad small but were the correct portion sizes recommended by the FDA. All of us in the US could get used to eating correct portion sizes. I will recommend this place to all of my friends and family. We will definitely be back.

We started with a party of six ;however, In bound flight delays and mechanical messed up our plans. Only 3 were able to enjoy dinner. Two arrived from the airport in time for dessert.
We were at our table for 21/2 hours. Food and wine were excellent and delicious. the fantastic view made the day complete.
We will return.

Went here for a father's day brunch with a large group of people and was seated at a very nice table with an excellent view. The brunch menu was what you would expect for a waterfront/seafood restaurant but had plenty of options for the non-seafood and vegetarian eaters. I had the market fritata with added crab. Everything was delicious.

I have been going there on occasion for years and am always sure I will have good food and excellent service and they came through again. The view is of sail boats in the marina with Vashon and Morie Island in the backround ,very interesting and soothing. Food quality very tasty and timely, portions seemed small but accually with bread and appetizer I can say we left with leftovers.Quality over quantity. We were an hour late and they were packed but still seated us very promptly which was very nice. The wait staff was very nice as well.

Great place to bring visitors
I Iove the sunset dinners at Anthony's. Salmon croccantini appetizers are delicious. Anthony's does seafood right - our salmon duet was cooked to perfection. Watching the sailboat races from our table was really fun. They are held every Thursday. Being down on the marina, watching the sailboat races on a clear, warm evening, enjoying Anthony's fabulous food, people and ambiance, is one of my favortie things to do - and it's the first place I want to take any out of town visitors.

Wonderful celebration for family
My wife's birthday with family. Excellent service and food! Well done! Had to wait for window table due to large size of party. But they gave us appetizers for waiting. Class act!

Solidified my reputation
Was in town on business with a couple of colleagues and decided to try Anthony's. I had met success at a couple other seafood restaurants in the area and wanted to try Anthony's. As they put it, my reputation, was on the line with my choice of restaurant. I had a standby in Des Moines, but wanted to reach out a bit. It was a great decision.
As for the meal, the clam chowder was OK, the ahi was excellent, and the wine the waitress recommended was superb. I don't usually have dessert unless the meal is very good, since dessert is on par or slightly worse; however this time I had the mousse and it was excellent.
Waitress was very attentive and knoweldgeable about the menu and wines.
If anything, I wish they had more outdoor seating.

South Sound Waterfront Treat
Anthony's Home Port Des Moines is a wonderful find. Looking west over a small marina and break wall, it offers views of the Sound and, with proper timing, lovely sunsets. The patio is a good size and layout, not too loud, with lush, flower-filled window boxes adding color and life to the ambiance. We found it slightly understaffed when we were there (a Thursday with a 7:15p reservation), with service slow and spotty (no water soon after arrival, flatware not delivered until after the food and upon our request)--but overall the experience was so good we would gladly return.

Waitress was lacking
First, the food was fantastic, and the ambiance was great. Our waitress was sorely lacking in basic social skills. She did not ruin our experience, but it didn't help either. She used as few words as possible. "What do you want?", "sure", "dessert?" Why people like her feel the need to have a job that deals with people is beyond me. My wife wanted another wine, but was never asked. If was as if we were bothering her.

Had a Great Dinner served by a friendly,professional server and priced fairly!

Fast service for sure
Our server was on the ball. Never an empty glass. She was alway checking up on us (and other tables too), to assure we had everything we needed. The food was OK. Had the King Salmon special. It wasn't all that specially prepared. The fish had a poached rather then grilled texture and lacked spices. Beans where flavorless. Meal was overpriced.
When we arrived on time for our reservation, we were told it would be 15 minutes. I oversaw walk-ins being told their wait would be 20 minutes. Why make reservations?
I doubt we will come to thisnlocation again.

All five of us had outstanding seafood dishes cooked perfectly. Appetizer list outstanding

Excellent service from very friendly, welcoming staff. Very good food -- fish obviously the center attraction. Thje view of the boat harbor was pure fun.

Corn on the Cob ???
the meal was enjoyable- nice view, service was average and cheerful....guess my one issue was the meal veggie being a half a corn on the cob. Strange veggie to serve when 80% of the lunch clientele is older and may have dental issues. Plus eating with fingers in a non-BBQ restaurant. Server should have been able to offer a different veggie for diners.

I really enjoy this restaurant. The early dinners are a great bargain ($20 for appetizer, salad, entree and dessert!) and have always been delicious. Out waitress was nice enough but seemed a bit preoccupied. To be fair it was a Friday and they are always pretty busy.

Great sunset views
Went there the first night it reopened from a utility shut down for a few days. Caesar salad was a little wilted and its famed fried oysters a little sub par. Much quieter than normal since most people didn't know it was reopened. It wouldn't stay quiet long.

We had a bad experience long ago and put off a
Return until now. This time, we were promptly seated,
Promptly served, received attentive--but not
overbearing service. Also, the food was well prepared. The fruit
appetizer and the coffee cake with cinnamon
butter was a great way to quell rumbling stomachs
until the main courses. We will go back--and not
wait 20 years!

Great Management Responsiveness
We had an unfortunate experience on our last visit to Anthony's, the management team responded quickly and kindly to get us back. They have solidified to us this is a top notch restaurant and we will be back!

Seafood and steaks were cooked to perfection...all special requests done perfectly.

Looked for a nice place to eat and visit - not too far from the airport. Met friends with a layover and took them to Anthony's HomePort since I have liked Anthonys' where we live (Tacoma) and have visited (SanDiego). It met my expectations. We had a nice corner table and enjoyed our food and visit. I would recommend it again. We frequent the Anthony's at Point Defiance as it is closest to us.

Des Moines Anthony's Our Local Gem
Whenever I need to meet freinds or clients for lunch or dinner, I choose Anthony's. There's nothing worse that meeting up someplace where the food and service is subpar. I love to place clients in view of water, mountains, boats, birds and people - any Anthony's will give them a flavor of the great Pacific Northwest with the views and menu they offer. I love how they feature NW wines and locally grown food. On top of all of this, Anthony's let's me give my clients a stellar experience without breaking my pocketbook. The Des Moines Anthony's is our neighborhood gem. The view of the boats and yacht club, Maury and Vashon Islands, The Olympic Mountains, King Fishers, Great Blue Herons - AND great food - it doesn't get any better that this!

The Salmon and salad was exceptional and very tasty
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
The daily seafood selection made choosing difficult. Everything on the menu looked excellent and after deciding it indeed tasted excellent. Portions were just right to leave room for desert. Would definitely take out of town guests here to enjoy the best seafood in the Pacific Northwest.
