We occasionally go here for dinner when at the shore. Food is good, service is friendly, prices reasonable. A little noisy, but then it is a Pub type restaurant. We will return.

We went there for lunch. I needed a special accommodation and was treated well. Bobby, our server, was very good. Manhattan clam chowder was excellent as was the fish and chips. Mahi sandwich tasted fishy and I replaced it with a fried flounder sandwich that was average. Look forward to trying other entrees as the menu had many great choices.

had dinner with the family on Saturday night. We waited 1 hour for a table, but our dinner was well worth the wait. Drinks from the bar were perfect. We were seated in the dining room. Our waitress was pleasant and helpful. Chicken Parm with pasta was delicious and tender. it was very very large. the seafood fry was outstanding.... More

Got a seat at the bar. Had a beer and an appetizer each. The stuffed mushrooms and the BBQ shrimp. Loved the shrimp but didn't like the hollandaise sauce on the stuffed mushrooms. It made it a heavy dish. Service was good. Beer was cold.

Located straight across the street from the seafront with some outdoor dining Just had basic lunchtime fare but it was all fresh and tasty. Didn't have time to stop for a beer but the bar looked great with a good atmosphere to boot

We were here for a family dinner (6 adults, 2 children). All dinners were well received. The chicken breast sandwich was soo big and very tasty. Another dish was the fried shrimp, then the skewered shrimp - both nice. Our little ones enjoyed the children's' platters. Our server was able to help us and was very friendly.

The Anchorage is bustling place all year around. Terrific bar food is the hallmark of this historic Tavern by the bay over the bridge from Ocean City. The service was excellent during our last visit. I loved my seafood pasta dish, a special that evening.
