I think that is the other way around. Anti-glare screens are going to be sharper because they use a glossy screen, but they don't stop all glare, they just make it much darker, and it can still be an annoyance if you have any lights on. Anti-reflective on the other hand eliminates all glare in any lighting, however since the screen isn't flat (on the microscopic level) like an anti-glare screen, there is slightly more optical diffraction, resulting in a picture that isn't as sharp.

You can't really say one is better than the other, as each has its trade off.
Anti-reflective or antireflection (AR) coatings are a type of optical coating applied to the surface of lenses and other optical devices to reduce reflection. This improves the efficiency of the system since less light is lost
