Anthony's sits on the end of Pier 4 and looks across to Logan Airport. The views are fun as you can watch the ferry's depart to the Cape, pleasure craft, and jets landing at Logan. It's a lot of activity and fun for the kids.
Anthony's looks like it should look - a New England seafood place. It's large and open; the tables are all set with crisp white linens. The bar is built to look like an old sailing ship. The wait staff is mature and professional - most of the waiters have been here for years. When you enter, cross over the lobster pond, full of live lobsters.
I had the fresh lobster It wasn't cheap, $45.00, but oh, so good! They do the whole bib ritual here and the lobsters are a nice size, but not too large as to be tough. It comes with lots of melted butter.
Chris had fresh scrod and the kids had burgers. We all had a cup of clam chowder - it was excellent.
The wait staff was friendly and enjoyed making the kids feel welcomed. They are attentive, without being intrusive. We were slightly underdressed as we were playing tourist, but the staff made us feel welcomed and at home. The menu is large and has most New England seafood picks as well as a good variety of steaks and meat. All meals are served with fresh, hot popovers. The desserts are decadent. I love the Indian pudding here.
We thought the place would be mobbed as it was the Democratic Convention. However, it was pretty empty. There were a few groups from the convention. Most of the New Mexico delegation was there as well as a former senator and his group. It was exciting to see all the delegates enjoying Boston, prior to the big convention.
Anthony's is a must do. It's slightly out of the center of downtown, but worth a taxi ride. It's been here for years with great service and outstanding seafood.

As would be expected, seafood dominates the menu. There are several whole lobster preparations, all of which looked delicious. Unfortunately, I'm allergic to shellfish, so I didn't get to enjoy the restaurant's specialties. But I was with a party of 10, and everyone raved over the lobster, shrimp, chowder, and steak. I had a bowl of leek and potato soup, which was too salty and not that great. But the crusty, tender popovers that were served with every meal were delicious, as was the Grand Marnier soufflé I had for dessert.
Although the restaurant is a little pricey, and can only be reached by cab or car, the views alone were worth the trip. Since I couldn't eat the entrees, I had room for my soufflé, and it was wonderful. We shared a bottle of dessert wine, lingered over our coffee, and enjoyed the city lights. A very nice evening.
