"We've been here plenty of times. Great restaurant, especially for special occasions. This time, we were stuck with a waitress that was extremely slow (we were the only table she had), and she kept forgetting things."

"We enjoyed dinner recently at Anthony's Pier 4 Cafe, and were delighted with the experience: superior service, excellent food, and an atmosphere that made us feel special. With intimate lighting, fine linens & flatware, and large floor to ceiling windows over looking the Atlantic Ocean, we couldn't have been happier taking in everything the experience had to offer.
We highly recommend you go to and enjoy Anthony's Pier 4 Cafe."

"For our anniversaries, my husband and I tend to head to Boston to enjoy a lavish night out and celebrate another year of love. This year, neither one of us had the energy to do the commute so I took to The Open Table app and found this spectacular restaurant! Both of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals, the ambiance was lovely, drinks were perfect and best of all was the Server. She was attentive without being intrusive had wonderful recommendations and was just all around pleasant. Highly recommend checking out this gem of a restaurant and I can only imagine how beautiful the view must be... We will be back and not to celebrate but to enjoy a great meal at a great restaurant!"

"It was a quiet crowd but very pleasant and decorated beautifully. The 4 of us enjoyed our meals. I did think the prices were high but I think every place over charges on New Years Eve. It would have been better if they had a piano player or singer. I would recommend this place for a special occasion."

"My friends and I used to frequent the restaurant, General Glover, back in the 70's. We were devastated when it closed many years ago. Only recently were we delighted to learn that Anthony's Pier 4 Cafe feature the scrumptuous marinated mushrooms, popovers and General Glover salad reminding of us of back in the day. The baked stuffed shrimp was succulent, also a a reminder of the way it used to be prepared at the General Glover restaurant many moons ago. The delicious nostalgic food, scenic ocean view and great service that Anthony's provides was a wonderful way to end the year. My friends, family and I will definitely be frequent diners at this fantastic establishment."

"The food and atmosphere was very good but our server Lucia was spectacular. She was attentive with out being over bearing. She new the menu items inside and out made some very nice recommendations (the smoked Salmon was the best I have ever had) and even offered to take our picture to commemorate our evening. We will likely be back in the very near future."

"We took some former New Englanders now living in the mid-west for a seafood dinner a few nights before Thanksgiving. The bar was lively, but the restaurant was quiet. Our guests were enchanted with the view of lights sparkling on the ocean and thoroughly enjoyed the various entrees that they had: bouillabaisse with lobster, baked haddock, broiled scallops and scrod. The baked Alaska was so large that three of them shared it. I can count on Anthony's excellent seafood always."

"The man at the host stand barely acknowledged us, and I had to tell him we had a reservation for four. Told us to follow him and sat us without a word. Considering I specifically put in our reservation notes we were celebrating two birthdays and wanted to sit by a window if possible I thought this was a bit rude. We were seated by a window directly opposite people eating outside on the deck. There were other tables available by unobstructed views, but I said nothing. Dinner menus were passed out at 130pm. I asked if the lunch menu was being used today and the kid pouring our water went to check. They were not. However later while watching our outside neighbors eat sandwiches - clearly it was in circulation outside, at the bar, etc. This should have been explained. I love Anthony's and usually have a good experience but Labor Day lunch was a major let down. Service was still very good and food very good."

"We went on a Saturday night at 6pm (9/5/2015) for my husband's birthday. He always get's the Irish Wiskey lobster because he loves it so much. I had the baked stuffed shrimp and it was the best I've ever tasted.
We had a waiter named Charlie who was wonderful. He was there when we needed him, had a wonderful personality and was great all around.
We made a reservation so we got to sit beside the window, it was a beautiful night so that was a special treat.

"One of the prettiest restaurants with a beautiful ocean view and during nice weather it is great seated outdoors. Food is good but varies depending on the Chef. Sometimes the foot is outstanding and other times mediocre at best. The view makes up for the mixed results on the food."
