One visit to Anthony’s creative Italian cuisine & you will be hooked. As you walk into one of three beautifully redesigned dinning rooms, in a building that dates back to the 1930’s, you will smell the aromas of the freshest ingredients and spices, which are used to create the unique menu. This coupled with the warm earth tones & natural lighting from the oversized windows makes dining here a truly special experience. Outdoor café dinning when weather permits adds to the romantic ambience.
As you are escorted to your table you can’t help but notice the beautifully crafted temperature controlled oak wine cabinet which houses up to 200 bottles of wine. Since the restaurant is a BYOB, the owners wanted to provide customers with a place to store their favorite wines so they are readily available each time they visit. Anthony’s also offers the use of any of their dinning rooms for private events.

I wasn't sure I wanted to try outdoor dining at Anthony's, but it was a real pleasure. Same good food as always and wonderful service. We highly recommend it.

Dined outdoors due to the pandemic. Food was excellent; it was a chilly night so they had a heater near our table but not close enough to roast us; servers were friendly, masked and conscientious about COVID protocols.

Anthony's is making an outstanding comeback! Classic Italian comfort food is on his menu again, and you can tell that the crowds are pleased.

With that being said, we dined inside and service was slow, at no fault of our own we were abruptly advised that it was time to leave by the server/manager (petite, female server). We had gone past our 90-minutes, which we would gladly have respected, but with only 2 servers and one bus boy for inside and out, and a max crowd to boot, their service itself was slow. I recommend that the server/manager soften her delivery if she must advise patrons that their time is close to being up. We will all gladly adhere to the 90-minute rule, if Anthony's staff can keep up as well??

Wife and I dine there often; consistant food, service and quality. Ate inside for 1st time; dining room renovated, nicely done. Always nice to see Anthony and John roaming around dining greeting diners. We both split their peach salad and had one of the specials for the evening, jumbo lump crab cakes, tasty and spiced right. The lemon cake for dessert is to die for.

We took advantage of indoor dining returning and it was a pleasant change. Our favorite server Mia was spot on as usual and carried out our orders with grace and efficiency. The only draw back was the ceasar salad, there was too much dressing which made it a little too strong. Also, the marinated shrimp, although very delicious, were overpowered by the sweet peppers, too many. The rack of lamb was succulent but a like cumbersome to cut with the bone in tact. A table side carving would have been nice. Overall, another great evening at Anthony's.

Wow, what a great outdoor experience. It was so easy to enjoy the outstanding food without needing to worry if you were far enough from other diners. Anthony's practiced all COVID precautions without missing a step in providing an exceptional meal with great atmosphere. Beginning with the soft shell crabs, burrata salad, rack of lamb, and barumundi, each dish was delicious. Thank you for such a great dining experience. We will return in the near future.

Outdoor dining setup is nice. About 7 tables and they are spaced apart. Contactless menu was nice but you need a phone. The server was professional but not very social. I started w the calamari which was tasty but could have had more aioli . My husband enjoyed the peach salad. The crab tomasso was great but my husband said the short rib pasta has been better in the past. My major complaint is that I am allergic to eggplant and it states that on my Opentabke profile yet I was served the marinated vegetables containing eggplant w the bread . Having been there previously I knew to avoid it. Doesn’t anyone there read? You only had 7 tables.

We went to Anthony’s to celebrate a milestone. It was our first visit and every bit as good as our friends said it was pre-COVID. It was our first big dinner out since everything was shut down. Couldn’t have been more perfect from service to appetizers, to entrees, cappuccino and desert (salted caramel gelato). One of their specials was Maryland soft shell crabs. They were as big and delicious as those we used to get in DC and Baltimore. Only seating is outside of course, but it was comfortable and gave a nice city vibe, like you’d find at a bistro on one of the quieter streets.

I loved Anthony’s , I’ve been there many times in the past but this is the first during the pandemic. Service was great as was the food. We were out on Station ave. which was okay and they are doing the best they can . An enjoyable dinner. Will do again. Price was fine especially compared to what some people are charging.

Lots of restaurants blather on about "locally-sourced" ingredients. Anthony's actually walks the walk. Scallops appetizer with Jersey white corn was flavorful, as was the shrimp and scallops over pasta entree. Our party of four raved about our respective meals. This has always been a good spot for South Jersey dining.

So let’s start with the service- Outstanding! There was only one waitress handling the 8 or 9 tables and she did not skip a beat. Everything was brought to our table in a timely manner. We ordered the scallop appetizer which was easily big enough for 2 of us. In fact much larger than my scallop entree at a very well known Starr restaurant in Philly last weekend. We both had salmon over crab n corn ravioli that was cooked to our liking. Oh I forgot the delicious peach salads with citrus dressing that was seasonably delicious!
For dessert we had homemade hazelnut ice cream. Everything about this dinner was delicious! Even the weather and very reasonable check!

Went for our Anniversary. Even with a lot of cancellations because of the coronavirus, service was slower than usual. The chefs usually prepare mind-blowing dishes but the Ragu I had was just okay. We love this place but they were off their game.

All four entrees were spectacular. I had the halibut special which was so perfect! My husband raved about the veal dish he ordered. Our waiter was attentive to our needs which included a bit more time before ordering. We ordered a tarimisu and creme brûlée for dessert. Both were delightful.
