Have been there a few times and have enjoyed the meals each time. Most recently I had a bowl of clam chowder and salad with salmon that was delicious. The prices for a seafood restaurant are reasonable and as most people agree having a beautiful view makes your meal that much moe enjoyable.
We usually try to get by here every trip to San Diego, BUT won't be going out of our way next time.
We go for the view of the Harbor and like to have dinner and drinks at sunset. This time, because someone inside complained about the glare from the sunset, the terrace outdoor shades were drawn, completely blocking our view, we asked why her complaint outweighed ours and were simply told to move.....WHERE? inside? I go for the view and now it is gone. The food is very average, tasted frozen, not fresh and the calamari and clam strips were like rubber! the cocktail sauce is just ketchup and the service..hmmm..?! not sure why they didn't make the old lady inside move instead, now I'll never be back and won't recommend either!
Really outstanding location and view. Good food. I ate there one evening and was satisfied so I went back for lunch trhe next day. The dinner was great. The lunch was mediocre. The service was surly but fast. The halibut is a great catch. Chowder is better than average. Squid sandwich should go back in the ocean.
I ate here the night before my one year wedding anniversary. I went to college in SD and was looking forward to going back to a restaurant I once loved. What a terrible mistake. The place has definitely taken a turn for the worst. The carpet were dirty and smelled awful. My husband had pasta that was drenched in sauce, there was barely any pasta. I unfortunately order the steak and crab legs. The steak was so tough I could barely cut a piece off and after trying the crab legs I realized that the first one had definitely gone bad. I should have been leary of our food being presented to our table too quickly after ordering. I tried to salvage part of another crab leg. I should not have. After leaving 90 percent of our meals untouched we left. I didn't eat anything else that evening and after two hours I began to endure the worst food poisoning I have ever experienced. I will never eat there again!
I've got to admit it is a great view of the bay but that's about all. The food is mediocre to subpar at best. At $10.99 for crab cakes, shall I say crab cake it is overpriced. My wife and I went down to Sea World and Anthony's was recommended so I headed down to the bay to check it out. We ordered the Mahi Mahi and it was probably the worst we've had. Along with the crab cake and Mahi Mahi, we also ordered a Teriyaki Steak which was actually good but the accompanying Lobster tail could of been better, the baked potato was overcooked and the salad was drenched with balsamic vingarette; it was the worst $85 I spent. The only thing I can give a positive comment on is besides the steak, the Cabernet Sauvignon was not bad (Avoid the house Cabernet.)I should have trusted my instincts and headed down to Old town San Diego. Avoid this overpriced place and save your money.
Great view of the bay if you can get a good table but food is just OK. I still like to take friends and family from out of town there , although sometimes it gets crowded with tourists (maybe from the cruise ships - gee you'd think they'd want to eat away from the water if they are spending so much time on a cruise ship!)
My family and I have loved Anthony's Fish Grotto for as long as I can remember but we had not been there in a while, maybe a year and a half or more. We used to use trips to San Diego just as an excuse to go to Anthony's and the possibility of a lunch or dinner there would often be the deciding factor in choosing a weekend trip destination for us. My wife and I went last week-and my in-laws on the same day and we both had the same experience that made us lose our fondness for Anthony's. It seems that they have changed ownership and not for the better. The menu has shrunk considerably and the prices have gone up quite a bit. I understand costs have gone up and I guess I should just chalk that up to it but my favorite dishes-like the mixed fries which had fish, shrimp, clam strips and scallops for around $13-that were the reasons I came to Anthony's are gone and in place of them are more standard seafood restaurant fare that seem to be priced for the tourists (only dish I saw with scallops were grilled and at $24.95). Now their famous chowder now seems average especially at $5.99 a bowl. Did the recipe change?
The service was slow considering there was no waiting to be seated at 1:30pm on a Friday afternoon but the waiter also seemed unhappy about the cuts in the offerings but sounded like he'd heard my complaints a hundred times already. I now have no reason to go back to Anthony's and that is a shame.
Having read about the restaurant in a travel guide and recommended by the hotel, we tried Anthony's on a late Wednesday night. They were fairly busy and the waiter was friendly and knew the menu. The service was reasonable and the food was good. The salad and entree were appropriate sized. The prices were not outrageous when compared to San Francisco or Los Angeles. With the seating, I strongly recommend that you request a booth because the tables are very close together, much like a French cafe.
