We came back to kona anticipating a return to what was Jamison's and now Anthony's. Our only hope now is someone will buy the place that knows how to make a great location into a great experience again, because Anthony has no clue!! We wanted to have a great seafood dinner of fresh fish, after all it is Hawaii, and had one choice, Ahi, take or leave it, so I had the one of two steaks offered, a very average rib eye, which was ok at best. Great location, average service, average food.

We stayed on the Big Island for 8 days and the absolute best meal we had was at Anthony's. The seafood pasta was dreamy. The beef filet was awesome. This place is right over the water and has great sunsets as well. Listen tot eh surf crash on Magic Sands beach. It is pricey but by far the best meal we had in HI

Ate at Anthony's for valentines day. First, did not give us table that we wanted even though reservation was made well in advance. My husband had to send back overlooked Ahi. My linguine had no flavor whatsoever. Way overpriced . Will not return.

Occupying the former location of Jameson's by the sea, Anthony's offers the same great views and great service. While the menu isn't quite as nice as Jameson's was, and the food maybe just a tad less delicious, the overall experience was still terrific and priced about the same as Jameson's, or slightly less. These guys are making a good effort to maintain the great reputation that this location enjoyed for over 20 years.

This restaurant had the best lobster I have had in a very long time. You can order an extra tail for $20. They also have a wonderful lobster flat bread app. The desserts were fabulous!!!
