This place is really great - low key atmosphere but the food is of the calibre you would find in a specialty fine dining restaurant -- - pub classics but elevated. A must0try.

Excellent food and location. Meals are fresh and tasty. Price is reasonable. However it can be a very noisy spot, so if you want to have a chat not such a good place.

Choosing to eat out for lunch on inclement weather such as today (downpour) will probably leave you clamouring to stay snugly at home or in your comfortable weather controlled office. Fortunately not too far with a small village feel by the sea you can drive just a few minutes and you’re at horseshoe bay and along Bay Street which is... More

Stopped by for Lunch and were treated to the best seafood in the area! Seafood Stew and Seafood Pescatore were exceptional! Marcus served our meal with pride, including recommending the Blue Buck Ale, which went well with our meals. What a treat on the first Spring-like day in Horseshoe Bay!!

Yummy! Gotta go to this restaurant. Kid friendly. Parent friendly. Neat decor. Friendly staff. Amazingly great food. Had the oysters, tuna salad, fish and chips. All were very good. Have local beer on tap!! Bonus! Washrooms need a bit of a Reno but that would be all.

We really enjoyed coming to Olive and Anchor tonight. Staff was friendly and we had a great waiter. The appies were good; we had The calamari and the Korean Fried Chicken wings. The wings were fantastic. If we'd come during the week for happy hour we would have had more appies. For the main I had the oyster burger. Really... More

Had lunch here on a Monday afternoon. We ordered and shared the Cod Tacos and the Calamari. Both were delicious. View from front of restaurant was great. Would absolutely return if back in the horseshoe Bay Area.
