Charming spot by a lake - we took some friends who live nearby and they had no idea what it was like. Some of the food was very good (brussels sprouts.) Had a crab sandwich that was just ok. Too cold to sit outside but its a nice spot for that in warmer weather.

Hadn’t been to Anthony’s Fish Grotto for quite a while. The food was very well prepared and served in a timely fashion. All enjoyed their meal and said they will be returning.

Nice place. Really like the atmosphere. It was cold outside and the restaurant was cold also. Not sure if they keep it that cold or if it was because the sliding door to the outside dining area kept opening??? Most people dining were wearing jackets and/or coats. Our food was great!

I took my mother for her 70th Birthday lunch. I am not a seafood fan, so I ordered a Turkey BLT, which had a Teeny Tiny eraser size piece of bacon on one side and one side of the sandwich was soggy. My mother's Seafood dish looked like a bunch of greasy batter. She only ate a couple bites. The server was attentive and the view over the water was great. We will never be back.

Good old standby for fish. Nice lake view but can be noisy inside. Nice outside dining except for the freeway noise. Some items over-priced. Generally, good food and good service.

Good food, good service, that's why Anthony's is so popular. Nice view of their man-made lake with outdoor dining if you like.
