The menu offered a good variety of Northwest appetizers and entrees. However, our server was somewhat surly, rude...fake smile, etc. Seemed as though she didn't want to be there! The prices were steep for a noisy lunch, and we won't return!

Met our grandsons for dinner. Close to Vashon ferry. Food and service was excellent. We try to go often. View is beautiful waterfront dining. They have a house salad with a dressing I have never tasted before. I would go just for their salad. Love...More

We love coming to the Point Defiance Anthony's! It's the only location that has the garlic BBQ shrimp. Also delicious and fresh tempura batter cod. Definitely try the Bailey's chocolate mousse. Very rich and enough to share.

Anthony's has a number of restaurants in the Northwest. The menu feature local seafood which is fresh and tasty. The views from this Anthony's are amazing. It is close to the ferry dock and is located on Commencement Bay.

Ate here twice while taking in Pt. DEFIANCE 5 mile loop on two dates. Both lunch and dinner had good service, food and drinks. Indoor seating or outside but plan for the sun. You can watch harbor seals and the ferry runs.

Spent a week in the Seattle/Tacoma area and ate at a lot of places but this one was my favorite. The food was outstanding, the service was great, and the view of the Puget Sound was incredible. Highly recommend this one.

I love this place. Of all the Anthony's in the Seattle area it's the only one who serves razor clams and they are to die for. I live in Bremerton and drive the 30 miles just to go there. And pay the $6.oo to cross...More
