Say farewell to Anthony’s Fish Grotto

After 70 years of signature seafood on the Embarcadero, Anthony’s Fish Grotto is officially nearing its closure.

To commemorate the decades of waterfront dining, the restaurant is serving up specials these last two weeks, until the doors shut permanently on Tuesday, Jan. 31.

From today through Jan. 31, visitors can order a cup of Mama Ghio’s legendary clam chowder for $2.50. The proceeds from the chowder will benefit two charities: Father Joe’s Village and Whispering Winds Family Camp.

Catherine “Mama” Ghio opened the original Anthony’s as a 16-seat diner in 1946. The restaurant has since become one of San Diego’s most iconic spots, and luckily for longtime fans, the sister eatery in La Mesa will remain open.

As an additional thank you to patrons over the years, diners can register in a drawing for dining gift cards to be used at the La Mesa location.

1360 North Harbor Drive, Embarcadero.
