Anthony J's is the perfect date night dinner. The food is always very good and the atmosphere is great for an intimate dinner with someone special.

Very unusual in that there are beautiful stones as part of the wall next to intimate booths. Of course, there is also a bar and restaurant side. Between 4 & 6 p.m. wine/beer are half price! When have you paid $3.50 for a glass of wine lately?? Service was great, as was the food. A definite place to put on... More

Excellent Italian restaurant with a romantic atmosphere. In addition to a regular dining room, the bar area offers a pub-like setting with dark wood, fireplace and plenty of ambiance.

Anthony J's is a small, intimate restaurant with a great menu sure to please. The Happy hour features great discounts on some of the appetizers and is a favorite place of the locals.

Wonderful food and great service every time. Atmosphere is warm, service quite good. This is a very popular place, can be a little noisy (the curse of most restaurants today!), but have never been disappointed. Worth the price.

We chose this at random and had to wait half an hour for a table. But waited at the bar and had a couple of excellent drinks. The tables were maybe a little close together, but not so much that you felt intruded on, but popular restaurants have to pack them in. And this must be popular with locals because... More

Steamer clams and seared scallops called to us and rewarded our tastebuds, washed with a couple of drafts, and quenched our travel weary need for something that felt like home. Pleasant staff and responsive kitchen left us totally satisfied. I don't know if locals eat here, but it felt like they should. I would!

My husband and I are visiting Mstic For a few days. We visited this restaurant yesterday for dinner. Bad move. The restaurant was small, dark and poor lighting. The tables are very close together. The service I will say was very good. However, the food terrible. I had eggplant parm. The noodles were chewy and not cooked well. The dish... More
