I've been here a few ties while in town for business. Service is always friendly and good. They have some awesome wing sauces I've never found anywhere else. And the Haddock is excellent. It's has a cool local feel.

We luckily visited the café on a Wednesday night--seafood night! The lobster tail was only $14.99! Everything was delicious and we had super service. When I'm back in town, I want to try some of the other items on the menu.

Good Gawd. I got enough food for a family. Service was great. Good old fashion hearty fare. Unfortunately their beer cooler died and they didn't have any good beers in bottles. It was a real shame since the bottle list was very impressive.

It was my second visit for seafood night at Anthracite Cafe. We've feasted twice on the snow crab special and we were not disappointed! The service was great and the food kept coming out without asking!
