Patio Dining on the River & Mountain Views
With pleasant temperatures beckoning, a meal on Anthony’s patio is perfectly timed to delight all of the senses. Watch the Deschutes River go by as you explore their craft beer selection, sip wine from beloved Northwest vintners and clink delicious cocktails. Pair your favorite beverages with pan fried oysters, mussels or Ahi Nachos as an appetizer. Rosés have been receiving a summer spotlight on Anthony’s menus, taste a trio of Oregon rose of pinot noir from Dundee Hills and Willamette Valley.

Sustainably Caught Fresh Seafood
Seasonal offerings and a menu abundant with sustainable fresh seafood make summer meals especially satisfying. As always, a daily fresh sheet is included with dinner menus. On it you’ll find fresh catches paired with delectable sauces incorporating ingredients known to be palate pleasers in the Pacific Northwest.

Menus to Please All Appetites
A bevy of healthful salads include Caesers, Cobbs, Chops and seasonal greens. Steak lovers will also find plenty to love here – try a filet, rib eye or top sirloin steak grilled to your liking. Those seeking gluten free options will be pleased to make their selection from a dedicated menu – including delicious gluten-free desserts. Known for pleasing diners of every age, Anthony’s kids menu meets the needs of even the most finicky appetites.

Save Room for Dessert
Always save room for Anthony’s dessert specials. The best of the season spotlights local berries with a Fresh Local Berry Sunday, Berries Devonshire, Homemade Berry Cheesecake, and one of my all-time favorites, the fresh homemade berry shortcake. Additional options include the melting chocolate cake, a burnt cream, and Bailey’s Irish Cream Chocolate Mousse. You can always punctuate your meal with specialty dessert cocktails that include nudges and chocolate martinis.

Sunday Breakfast in the Old Mill District
On Sundays breakfast is served alongside all of Anthony’s regular menu items. Look for options that include fresh Northwest peach crepes, scrambles, trout & eggs. Why not pair your brunch with a Bloody Mary if your day calls for more summer play like a hike along the river trail?

Bend Happy Hour with a View
Happy Hour happens everyday from 3p to 6:30p. In addition to pan friend oysters and Ahi nachos, the menu features salmon sliders, shrimp cocktail, calamari and drink specials, including their specialty seasonal cocktails inspired by fresh ingredients, wine, well drinks and beer.

As it turns out, stunning views of the Cascades mountains go quite nicely with every meal at Anthony’s. Do you have a favorite dish?
