We've been to the Blue anchor several times this past summer and recently stopped by for lunch indoors. They usually have a daily special or two, reasonably priced and prepared with care. My wife typically has the fish and chips. It is lightly fried, large and quite tasty. I have had the Shepherd's pie for lunch, pastas and a few... More

This place used to be packed it was the go to place for drinks, food and good times. Not sure whats going on at this place the food keeps going downhill and the prices keep going up. This place is a glorified chip stand with a killer location. If you like expensive deep-fried food this is your place. Also its... More

We went here twice. First time was a Sunday Brunch affair, sitting on the patio. We had a perch wrap and fish and chips. Bother were delicious. Service was great and attentive even though the place was extremely busy with a line-up of people waiting for table.. The view was nice, though there was no boat traffic to speak of.... More

Must stop every time we are back from Toronto to Montreal. Always a real fun and pleasure taking a break in n their seaside deck. The beer battered haddock is amazing, must try. Will come back for sure.

Our family group of 12 arrived just as they unlocked the doors at 11am. We moved four tables together and was told we could not do that and the waited came and moved the forth table away saying it was manager who said this was not allowed. There was not another soul in this restaurant. We decided at that point... More

I am going to say that the best part about this restaurant is the river side patio. If you go on a nice day expect to wait for the patio. The inside isn't really special and is very loud. We've been there a few times and always share a meal. This time we chose fish and chips and deep fried... More

I had the fish and chips and my husband had the cheeseburger platter. He upgraded the fries to poutine for an extra cost of $4.50, making his meal cost over $18.00. Too much for what he got on his plate. The poutine was served in a tiny dish which had less fries then what he should have had if he... More

Food is terrible and overpriced and as reported by others it is so noisy you want to hurry to finish your meal and get out

Have been here several times. Went again with another couple and had the same experience..... great to kick back & relax by the St. Lawrence River, and enjoy some drinks. But, the food quality is often a real miss, here. Our Server was Alisa, and she was friendly and efficient, and made the experience a pleasant one.... a really good... More

The relaxed atmosphere and the beautiful view coupled with outstanding food made for a wonderful Sunday afternoon. Parking is plentiful. The patio is priceless. The haddock was well prepared and not greasy. The perch wrap was truly a work of art and an explosion of flavor. Excellent location and staff. A place one should never just drive by.
