Glad we made a last minute decision to make a reservation - it was very busy! Fabulous dinner. We shared the smoked salmon flatbread and cod tacos. Both delicious. Great service. We’ll be back.

We have tried most of the restaurants in Horseshoe Bay...Olive & Anchor is best in our opinion. The food is good and the service is excellent.

Popped in when dropping off a fried at the ferry. Service was slow and the guy that brought our appies basically dropped our plates on the table in passing. Not impressed in the slightest, food was only so so.

We always enjoy a visit to Olive & Anchor...the view (if you're lucky enough to score a window seat) looks out over Horseshoe Bay but the real star is the food. The fish and chips and burgers are great casual fare, and there are usually...More

From amazing fish and chips, seafood po boys, and hamburgers, they also have authentic Bimibop, and really good specials that change often.It is our favorite place in Horseshoe Bay and just a bit further down, so you feel off the beaten path.
