All you can eat fish fry was very good. You can really eat all you want. Their menu has a good variety and the food is always good.

We've stopped in at the Anthracite on several occasions to pick up some snacks or have lunch. On every occasion, the food has been great and the service was both friendly and efficient. I would recommend checking this place out if you're looking for something on-the-go or for a meal.

I stopped in the Antracite Newstand to buy a six pack of beer during a recent stay at the Best Western Genetti and have to wonder about the two reviews that I just read. This looked like a hang out for losers and I can't believe that the clientele hangs out there for the food. In all fairness we did... More

The VERY BEST home made food ever. I can't say when I enjoyed a meal more. Everything is truly home made. The lasagna and peanut butter pie are awesome!
