You can't beat the location, right on the waterfront. Especially pleasant place to hang out on the deck on a summer's day. The wine list is stellar, especially when it comes to selections from Washington. Just wish the food was better and not so expensive.
As of June 2012 Anthony's when I was last there, it was positively superb! Service was top notch (and jovial), the drinks were generous, and the food was outstanding. Anthony's has everything my family and friends look for in a restaurant. We moor our boat by the one in Bremerton, JUST BECAUSE it is by Anthony's, and visit the Seattle waterfront occasionally. So nice to have moorage next to them. They don't come any better, and their happy hour pricing from 3-7pm is top notch.
Excellent Prawns, BAD SERVICE – A friend of mine and I went last Thursday to their advertised all you can eat prawns for $14.99. The prawns were cooked to perfection and were delicious. Its the poor service we received directed by the management of Anthony's that irritated us. Sure they are going to lose some money on an all you can eat affair, but what transpired left a bad taste in our mouths. According to our waiter, the Prawns are to be delivered in decreasing amounts at about 10 minute intervals. When two measly Prawns arrived at our table we had to ask what was up? Our waiter discretely told us that it was at the direction of management to provide two prawns at a time within about 10-15 minute intervals. We finally gave up the fight and decided to post our grievance online
No apologies. – Anthony's Pier 66 (Seattle, WA): Don't waste your time, money, and taste buds. I called and spoke with the hostess at about 6:00 pm for reservations. She informed me that the inside was booked but that the outside seating (quite enormous) was on a first come, first serve basis and that we would be fine if we came in. We arrived 15 minutes later, and I asked for our group of four to be put on the waiting list. She said that they were all booked up, and after I explained that I had just phoned, yadayada?. She whispered and said to me?"we're overbooked." After our delightful conversation I asked who the manager was, and to my surprise, it was the goof standing right next to the kind hostess. He said not a word and went not straight to work. I asked him his name and he said "Sean." No apologies whatsoever. No "thank you," or "please come back again." Nothing of the sort. I have eaten at Anthony's previously with friends; the food is average, and while I will pay hundreds for good food and drink, the food at Anthony's was below average for the price. Nevertheless, they do have cool televisions in the men's room playing ESPN.
One of my Favorite Happy Hour Spots – This is the best place so far for the Happy Hour. The service is super and the price and portions of their happy hour menu are great! I have never been dissapointed neither with service nor food at this restaurant. It also has a fantastic view! I think Anthony's and Ivar's are my favorite Happy Hour spots on the waterfront. I am very pleased with them!!!
About what I expected – For a $7 basket of fish and chips, Anthony's Fish Bar lived up to expectations. The fries were very good, but the fish seemed a bit greasier than I expected. While the cod was average, I really enjoyed the fried salmon. The flavor of the fish really made it through the breading and frying, and made for a good inexpensive lunch.
Overpriced Mediocre Food – I have been to most all the Seafood restaurants in the area, and I am constanly disappointed by this one. I end up coming here because my Grandparent like it from out of town. The food is bland and I question the quality- It gets pricey... but I don't know what I am buying. The crowd is predominately older (Greater than 60) and the restaurant and food are just plain boring.
Not worth it – I ignored previous reviews and decided to give it a try. Our appetizer, which was $50+ was very poor. It tasted like it was pre-made and sitting out. Seafood should not be dried out. Our entrees were about average for this type of restaurant. However, if you're spending over $100 per person (wine included), give somewhere else a try.
Okay, but not recommended – My bf and I had a $60 gift card to Anthony's. The place was very nice and upscale. The dress code is casual. We were seated promptly.
Our waitress was very honest and knowlegdable. They're required to try everything on the menu. I ordered the tuna and halibut and my bf ordered some Ahi dish. The food wasn't bad, but it was overpriced for the quantity that you get. We ordered the coconut shrimp and oysters for appetizers. My bf really loved the oysters.
It WAS a long wait in between meals and drinks. We were actually there for a good two hours because it would take so long, but we didn't notice because we were enjoying our time together and not in a rush. I wouldn't go back there again because the food isn't worth the price. Everything's over rated and I'd rather eat at Ivar's instead!
Wow! That's Seattle! – Dining at Pier 66 isn't just a way to replenish nutrients but it is an experience! From the moment we freely valeted the car to the rich dessert... we were overcome with an experience that we are still talking about! The fresh Halibut, Big Eye Tuna, and whole Dungeness Crab were beyond words. The presentations were eye catching as well as the well paired flavors. But I probably should mention the view... A complete downtown city scape, ferries slowing crossing the sound, and a beautiful sunset into the snow capped mountains. WOW! That's SEATTLE!
Dine on the downtown Seattle waterfront overlooking Elliott Bay. – In Short
There are actually three restaurants in the complex: a fast-food fish bar facing Alaskan Way, the Bell Street Diner for casual eating downstairs and Pier 66 for finer dining on the upper level. Try everything from the fish tacos outside at the walk-up counter to the grilled halibut with rhubarb coulis, balsamic vinaigrette and Japanese yams that can be found upstairs.
