Excellent sea scallops and beef chuck tips as well as good price on twin lobsters and many comfort foods in a local pub/diner setting. Good portions and great value. Popular place with the locals.

The Anchor is a local "Dive" bar. There is nothing fancy about the place- pool tables, large bar. The fresh fish is caught daily by the owner. The prices can't be beat. The beer is cold and the food choices are many. The boiled lobster...More

For a place that screams "BAR!!!", the food is fantastic. What's impressive is the list of daily specials -- and we're not talking special burger, or special pizza. It's roast duck with a sweet chili glaze, or seafood pie, or swordfish scampi over pasta. It's...More

This is a local spot. Don't expect linens or ambiance. What you will find is extremely fresh, well prepared seafood. AND seriously affordable! Very few of these gems left. Been recently with big party and just two of us. Seating can be tough on weekend...More

We loved the large bar. The food we ordered was good and reasonable priced. We got King Crab legs which came cracked open for us. Delish! For our meal I got broiled haddock. It was so tasty. Their cole slaw is my favorite. My husband...More

Stopped by for a quick bite at lunch today. If you are not a regular, you will feel like you are invisible in this "locals only" spot. We sat the bar, which was filled with construction guys slinging f bombs and knocking back brews, and...More
