ANTHONY'S PIER 66 - SEATTLE, WASHINGTON
ANTHONY'S PIER 66
After a great meal at Elliott's we tried another recommended seafood restaurant in Seattle. Located on the water on Pier 66 is Anthony's. There are three levels of restaurants here. The bottom floor is self service and less expensive. The middle is moderate sit down and the top level called Pier 66 is fine dining with a great view of the harbor.
We opted for the fine dining and were seated next to a huge window with a great view. Our waiter started the evening as a star. Doing everything right. By the end of our dinner he was loosing focus and not up to par. We started with what else - Oysters. One dozen which were quickly followed by another dozen. We tried a combination of Seattle, Canadian and Alaskan oysters. Each had a little different taste, but all were good. Our daughter Keli went crazy over them and began eating them like cookies. Surprisingly, the menu is filled with Hawaii names and variations such as Hawaiian Ahi Nachos, Waikiki Coconut Prawns and Hawaiian style poke. Maybe the chef spent some time on the Islands. I tried the clam chowder. It was probably the worst of the three we tried in Seattle. Not bad though. Shirley thought the same about the chowder and said the Ceasar Salad was fair and nothing special. I tried the Northwest Duet which is fresh pacific king salmon and fresh halibut. They were both delicious and served fresh snap peas and mashed potatoes. Our experience at Anthony's was good but nowhere near Elliott's. Wish we would have gone back to Elliott's.
