When we are in Sunapee, The Anchorage is one of our regular places for lunch or dinner. We can take the boat and tie up right outside (part of the appeal). Sitting outside overlooking the harbor is the only place to be and worth the wait. The food is decent-burgers, salads, fish, and stuff to satisfy picky kids like mac... More

The restaurant is in need of a makeover inside but the food is good and works well for families and smaller kids. The wait time was reasonable and menu items gave us enough options for everyone to be happy and the bill was unexpectedly low. Definitely will be back again.

I think this place is busy simply because of where it is and because it draws so many tourists and people from out of town. Unfortunately the food isn't very good and the place is pretty over priced. Since they are the only restaurant on the water though, they pretty much have a monopoly.

This is a traditional lunch stop for our family - we rent a boat each summer, and The Anchorage has great docking. We were lucky to have great weather so we could eat outside. We had a very nice waitress - always a plus. I had the lobster roll - the old fashioned way with just butter. Very good, and... More

Every year the Anchorage seems to get worse! The hostesses (2) were border-line surly. Hardly anyone there at noon, but we were told we'd have to wait, even though only one booth was occupied! Lobster rolls are now $24.00 up from $23 last year. The wait staff is remarkably untrained and the sandwiches we had were sloppily prepared. It's a... More

Tables by the window have fun view of boats going in and out. Food was just OK - price too high for what you get, but choices are limited for restaurants in this area.

Stopped for a beer and sandwich on a Saturday noon. Opens at 11:30 am. Service was first rate...good selection of tap beers. Had a Rubben sandwich that I thought was just average..thin bread and the rest. Used to getting a beefier rubben. Right on the harbor so you see lots of boats coming and going. Usually a wait to be... More

Very charming outdoor dining with views of the harbor, general store and more...great beer selection and the wine wasn't bad either. Service was good, but the food was mediocre at best. My wifes baked potato was microwaved - but my pot roast was good...

Food was a little above average but the drinks were delicious and the views were awesome from the back patio. It sits right on the lake and is right on the docks so you can see all of the boating traffic. We got the bbq pork spring rolls which were tasty and I got the beer battered fish and chips... More

We have not been to the Anchorage for several years. They have changed hands since we were last there. I was my daughters birthday, and her children and I made a commitment that she would not be cooking any meals on her birthday and that we would go out and be waited on for all meals on her day. We...
