American | Tukwila, South of Seattle

always a pleasant respite from the hectic traffic and the bustle of the mall. the staff are friendly, the ambiance nice, and the food is very good. I appreciate the variety of options for lunch though I never can pass up the fabulous tomato soup! The desserts are always tempting, too. It's a relaxing setting that I continue to visit; and if friends are from Seattle, it's a nice half-way site since I live in the south sound. More

Seafood | Des Moines, South of Seattle

Fabulous food, fresh caught seafood prepared deliciously. Our server Courtney was delightful. We'd been to other locations of Anthony's HomePort and have always enjoyed it. The Des Moines location was no exception. The "moderate" noise level rating during our visit was likely because of several larger groups celebrating graduations that evening. Didn't interfere with our enjoying our meals, tho'. More

Discover South of Seattle

Whether you're headed into or out of the city, there are many wonderful reasons to linger south of Seattle. The dining options here are more laid-back but with the same quality you'd expect in the big city. Classic American seafood is still in high demand, but the area also supports less common cuisines, like Caribbean and Thai. Get a real feel for the Pacific Northwest with locally sourced, award-winning chowders, or get a taste of something else entirely with island-inspired dishes like jerk chicken. Pan-Asian fare abounds. You'll have your choice of everything from traditional miso soup to Thai swimming rama.
