This restaurant is a good example of what average American food is. Middle of the road taste no spice whatsoever good prompt service. Atmosphere is family oriented. And it is a fairly fairly good value around $15 per person without alcohol.

Have been going here more frequently lately. I love that they put popcorn on your table when you arrive. Most meals include bread and butter, soup or salad. I love their wings, crispy, not fatty. The atmosphere is unique, they are basically on an "island" where a busy highway splits, they have a nautical theme and characters from Popeye pained... More

We've dined here twice the past couple weeks. Wife had clam strips twice. I had them once. The first time done to perfection second a little overdone. I had blue plate special of fish and Mac and cheese. Mac and cheese was good, fish only so-so

I always stop here when I am home for a drink and wings/steak salad with creamy Italian dressing. The seasoned wings are yummy. It is hard to find creamy Italian dressing at restaurants and they have it! The waitress Jess is great! Friendly atmosphere.

I usually go with an appetizer and deluxe dinner salad when I come here. Weekends are usually very crowded especially after a football game. Service is usually ok. Sometimes waitresses disappear and don't refill drinks as often as we would like. Got chicken rice soup once and it was really watery. I would stick to the fried food, sandwiches and... More

I come here quite often. Have always gotten great service. The staff is friendly, an the owners go above and behind. I always would take my mom there, until she got sick, then she couldn't really get out. The owners offered to deliver to her any time she needed something, and would even throw in free items. Quite an awesome... More

Servers and owners couldn't be nicer. A great place to bring kids and not very adventurous eaters and drinkers. Did I mention friendly?

They serve you fresh-popped popcorn as soon as you sit down…YUM! The wait staff is friendly and the atmosphere is very casual. I go to the Anchor a few times a month. My favorites are the seasoned chicken wings and the chicken dumpling soup. When available, the crème brulee is definitely worth the calories.
