About the restaurant
Tucked between lazy farm roads and sprawling ranch land, in cozy proximity to I-10, Katy, and the Energy Corridor lies west Houston’s favorite eatery. Anthonie’s is a unique indoor/outdoor concept boasting ancient-wood planked walls, polished concrete floors, a state-of-the-art open kitchen, and a massive patio with superb sunset views. The
warm ambiance and neighborly reception are just a prelude to the restaurant’s generous, lip-smacking
meals.

-Most seating will be OUTDOORS
-Thank you for choosing Anthonie's Market Grill in Simonton, TX!
-Please keep in mind all reservations may incur up to a 30-minute wait. We will try to have you seated as soon as possible. We look forward to your visit.

STQ is always a great go-to for us. A neighborhood gem! This time we ordered several appetizers as our starters and entrees - the brisket enchiladas were amaaaaazing and the bacon wrapped shrimp were also wonderful! We usually go straight for the steak, but mixed it up a bit. If you’re a steak lover, splurge for the Wagyu flight (off menu)…it’s delicious and fun to compare the different beef by area. Also, the ceaser salad is one of the best in the city. Carrot cake and crème brûlée cheesecake are unmatched. Killen’s has their own rye whiskey - try it in an old fashioned. Anthony was our server this time and he provided an elevated experience! You can’t go wrong with anything on the menu.

About the restaurant
Brunch on Saturday and Sunday is primarily first come, first served. If you do not see the time you want available online, please call us directly.

When owner Johnny Carrabba set out on his next restaurant venture, he knew his vision would include the fond memories he had of his dear grandmother Grace Mandola. Grace, also known to the family as Mama, was a Sicilian woman born to immigrant parents in Louisiana. She had a flair for cooking, hospitality, and deep faith.

She was known to make bread from scratch every Saturday for her legendary three-hour Sicilian Sunday lunches; and, her newly established family roots in Louisiana added interesting flavors to her home cooked meals. The entire Mandola family, including her five children and fourteen grandchildren, was regularly greeted in her home with smells of warm bread, well brewed sauces and homemade soups. It was around her table that her family learned the true meaning and value of relationships, friendships and good food.
