For over 50 years, Anthony's Fish Grotto in La Mesa has been serving farm-to-table cuisine long before the current trend; Anthony's serves locally caught fish prepared in the comfort-food style of an authentic Italian seafood restaurant. Now San Diego's oldest family owned seafood restaurant has re-envisioned the menu and the environment for you and your pet.
The restaurant sits atop one of the few natural, spring-fed lakes in the region forming a pristine and quiet oasis in the hills of La Mesa. Centrally located to all of San Diego, it has become San Diego's first "Dine With Your Dog" Destination. The outdoor area borders the lake where ducks and fountains create a tranquil environment. The entire courtyard welcomes dogs to dine with you, but there is an additional Gated Dog Run, where you can let you dog run freely while you dine. Dogs are welcome and well taken care of with water bowls and treats.
While you may remember Mama Ghio's original fish fried in her famous batter, only a few original dishes remain with a focus on healthier fresh sautéed, broiled, seared and grilled fish along with beef, chicken, salads, pastas and sandwiches like the amazing Salmon Reuben. Consistently voted the Best San Diego Seafood Restaurant and recognized by Zagat as the Number One Most Popular Restaurant in San Diego, Anthony's now serves more than one million customers and five million pounds of seafood each year.
Their delicious food, casual atmosphere and friendly home-style service will quickly make Anthony's Fish Grotto your favorite San Diego seafood restaurant. A dog-friendly setting for you and your four-legged friend awaits!
