Get it to go or eat in. Lots of seafood choices. Lobster roll is excellent. Meaty and light on the mayo. Perfect brioche bun. Grab some chowder and crab cakes to go. Heat it up back home and save a bundle over other fine in restaurants.

A few years back I was introduced to Portuguese clam chowder and clam cakes here and when we came back I couldn't wait to have them both again!

My wife and I recently visited Rhode Island for our second honeymoon (40th anniversary). My wife really wanted good steamer clams and Anthony's came highly recommended. The food was fantastic and we ended eating there two out of the four nights we were in town. The RI Clam Chowder was the best we had there. The Steamers were delicious, as... More

This is not a white table cloth place and thank goodness. The atmosphere is very casual. The seafood store in front is sooooo fresh. You may wait in line for the eat in section but the food is worth it.

Anthony's is a combination seafood store and restaurant. My impression is that their sales are split about 50-50 between the two parts of the operation. What you get at the restaurant is super fresh seafood well prepared, but not fancied up.

I had what Guy Fieri had (diners drive-ins and dives) which was Kung pow calamari and it was unusual and really good. The Calamari was not rubbery at all- well done on their part. The only negative thing I would say is that there was a bit too much sauce. OMG the Portuguese chowder was FABULOUS!!!!!!!! If you go, you... More

During our stay in Newport we developed a hunger for nothing less than lobster. The well known restaurants on Thames street are very expensive for that delicacy so we asked some locals and where directed to Anthony's. Anthony's prides itself in having the freshest seafood per the folks that directed us there. It is a casual environment and seemingly always... More

Don't let the lack of "atmosphere" stand in the way. You stand in line to place your order, find a table & wait for your food to be delivered to you. Pleasant staff. Went to Anthony's twice because it was so good. Fish & chips one night; lobster dinners the next. Good food, great prices.

Thank Ann S
