Anthony's Caribbean Grill
This place is everything its neighbor restaurants are not. Whereas most restaurants on the island are in hotels, Anthony's is in a quaint shopping center. Most island restaurants are expensive and stuffy, but Anthony's is laid back and low priced. All in all, it's the perfect antidote to an overdose of Paradise Island. Menu items include steak, seafood and such Caribbean favorites as jerk chicken. The atmosphere is cheerful and tropical. Children are welcomed warmly.
We were staying at an all-inclusive nearby with a buffet all the time and decided to treat ourselves to a nice full-service sit-down dinner the last night of our vacation. As mentioned in the last few reviews, the service was slow and inattentive, even though the place was not busy at the time. It seemed the service staff had more important things to do hanging out in a group by the bar talking. We ordered the spinach-artichoke dip for an appetizer. When it came out, the dip was swimming under a pool of butter and it was TERRIBLE. The only flavor was sour. Very sour. We ate a bit before we decided it really wasn't supposed to taste like that. I told the waitress we didn't like it but didn't ask that it be removed from the check. My coconut shrimp came out and, I suppose was resonable in quality for what it was, eight smallish shrimp heavily battered. Steamed veggies looked dry and unappealing and rice was luke warm. I only tried a little. My wife's seafood brochette was terrible. The seafood was overcooked and rubbery and it was all cooked in a sauce or marinade that was extremely salty and, yep, sour tasting. We sent that back. The manager/owner? took it off the check and offered to cook something else but by then, the dinner out was over. I felt ripped off and it was a waste of the last night's opportunity to have a nice relaxed meal.
First of all the service was just HORRIBLE !!! Our waitress must of had better things to do other than waiting on us . I normally wouldn't mind so much , except for finding out that a 15% gratuity was automatically added to our bill.
Then to add to our experience , about 5 minutes AFTER we had already paid our bill , a gentleman comes to our table and states that he needed to see our credit card AGAIN . We had our reciept , even called our credit card company to find that it had indeed been charged already , yet this yahoo was insisting that the card wasn't charged . Did they just try to run a scam on us , and charge us twice ??? Sure looked and felt that way .
Food was OKAY , however refills on soda were $4.00 . Something the waitress had failed to mention . Maybe if we had seen her more than twice over our 1 1/2 hour visit.
I would HIGHLY recommend going somewhere else.
PS. What did the management do for us after they had realized that our CC had been charged , and that their 10 minute harrassment about it was unwarranted ???
Saw this place a year ago but didn't stop in. This year we gave it a try since all the food at the hotel was getting old. Our cabbie from the airport recommended it, saying it used to be a Tony Romas but the owner ditched the franchise to save money. Knowing this, we were expecting the goods. First thing I noticed was the not so comfortable booth which had springs all outta wack. Our shrimp appetizer was supposed to be "chilled" but it tasted as if they had been sitting out for several hours and were almost warm. We sent 'em back and got more that were cold this time, but still tasted horrible. Worst shrimp ever by far.
Service was slow and typical Bahamas style. There was only three parties in the joint, and it took forever to get anything. My water glass sat empty for 10 minutes before the manager finally came around and asked if we needed anything. Everywhere we went, it felt like they just didn't care about service. Maybe it's because the 15% tip is already included. Most of the time I leave 20% or more but when they "take" the tip, there is hardly reason to give more.
I ordered the herb crusted snapper which was good, minus the bones that I almost choked on. Their overpriced burger was very similar to the Mayan Temple burger from Atlantis' in room dining menu, which was what we were trying to get away from.
Overall not impressed with Anthony's or any food on Paradise Island for that matter. Can't understand how anyone could give this place a favorable review.
This place reminded me of Denny's with the cheap facade and even more so when I sat down and all the springs were broken in the booth. The food is overpriced although it didn't taste bad I do find 16.00 to be a bit outrageous for a hamburger (most of the dinners are 35.00 or more) and the "nachos" did not contain any meat. Wost of all we had a terrible server. When she realized we were ordering non dinner items her attention was focused elsewhere. I requested a box and it took 30 mins to get a box and another 20 mins afterthat to get the bill (which already included the gratituity -this deserves no tip...all around poor service and cheap ambiance!
Iloved this place, it's everything and more you'd want from an island restaurant. The staff are super friendly and helpful, the drinks are awesome AND BEST of all the Prices are very reasonable.. I CAN'T WAIT TO GO BACK AND I AM IN FEB 2008..... SEE ya soon Anthony's
My husband and I make it a point of going to Anthony's every time we are in Nassau. We especially like their happy hour -- where they make the best frozen drinks we have ever had .... and be sure to ask the bartender for a recommendation for an appetizer. Everything we have tried has been wonderful -- most recently the Carribbean shrimp in lime and garlic !!!! It is the best with a frozen drink on a hot afternoon. We have been to Anthony's a number of times, and have never been disappointed. You won't either.
While "things" is a rather ambiguous term, in the case of this store it means "souvenirs." Several supposedly authentic Cuban
cigar brands are on sale here, in addition to carvings, picture frames, tie dyed T shirts, enamel backed hairbrushes ...
