    By far the best place to take your pups

    This place has "Doggy Dining" and it is extra special as it is a dedicated area for dogs with there own menu. I frequent this place just because how well they take care of me and my dog. Make sure to call ahead for reservations.

    Fabulous for all of us.

    My family has been going to Anthony's since they had their actual grotto in La Jolla. When that closed we regularly went downtown to the location on the Embarcadero. Now that that is gone, we go to La Mesa, although not as often as it is a much longer drive. But their pet friendly atmosphere has made this location our go-to stop for lunches and dinners when we want to bring our dogs. I met my parents there for lunch when my dog was only about 8 months old and she had a great time. She had their doggie seafood lunch and loved it. She also enjoyed watching the ducks in the pond, as did we all. They have a fair sized dog rest area with a single gate and real grass. They are quite pet friendly.

    Lunch next to the lake with soothing fountain sounds was lovely. Even better was having my little wolf-girl Nymeria join us. She loved the setting, her own water bowl and snacks. Watching the ducks kept her busy and I was glad for the leash clamp on the table. A bonus was having the dog tables segregated into an area comfortable for animals and people alike. Definitely returning on a regular basis.

    Great place to bring our dog

    Food was great, nice setting outside by the water and ducks walking by to entertain our dog.

    Doggie Menu

    Now they have a doggie menu also. Buffy (my Rottie) was able to have her own dish of food along with " mom". It looked as good as mine. ????

    Best Dog-friendly setting!

    Buddy and I just enjoyed a relaxing lunch/treats today at Anthony's in La Mesa. Needed a dog friendly space to eat lunch and chill for a couple of hours before heading home and this was perfect! The surroundings were beautiful, the food delicious, and Buddy was very happy napping while mommy read her book. I'm looking for an excuse to go back!!!

    bow WOW

    Wow what a spot! Peaceful lake, comfortable swivel rockers, umbrella tables, beautiful landscaping and complete facilities Mr. Mutt, my rescue dog. Very busy, next time I will call and deserve a doggie dining table. Loved my Salmon Reuben and Mr. Mutt enjoyed his complimentary water bowl and treats.

    Bow WOW!

    Unbelievable setting on the small lake. This is no patio on a busy street or overlooking a parking lot! Great food for us and so welcoming for our dog Princess.
