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.

Referred by a friend to the place in the middle of nowhere. Drove up and it’s a neat looking restaurant with very friendly staff. Our waiter, Elvin, explained in detail menu options we had questions on. Not disappointed at all. Baked goat cheese, wedge, shrimp and grits and a burger later we were stuffed and extremely satisfied. Nothing disappointed at all. And then? A coconut cream pie that so good we couldn’t get enough. Very pleased with every aspect of the place and can’t wait to go back. Worth the trip.

Overall experience was very nice and upscale. Food and wine was tasty and moderately priced. Our biggest complaint was the music. Would have been more appropriate and complimentary to have soft jazz playing.

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.
