A couple beers after work

Visited this place a couple times the week I was here. They had a good selection of local beers which were really good. On Tuesday nights the have trivia night which was a lot of fun. Their food is typical bar food. Nothing to rave about. But it was good bar food. Hit this place up if you are in... read more

I am a fish and chip enthusiast. If you are too, be sure to stop here. They use beer batter, none of this sissy Pablo breading. In addition to amazing cod they also serve battered prawns. We had an order of each. The order included good crisp fries and fresh, not sweet, cole slaw. My idea of a perfect meal.... More

Place seems like a cool place to hangout and drink. Staff was friendly and nice, service was solid. I had the fried calamari with a side salad. The calamari was bland, the sauce it came was uninspiring. I probably should have order a burger.

The Brown Lantern is a staple with the Anacortes locals with rotating beers on tap, full bar, great pub food options, and sports playing on numerous TV's. I stop here almost every time I am traveling thru Anacortes.

Awesome bartenders and a fun environment! It was my colleagues birthday and we were celebrating, they gave us free drinks and we changed our plans and decided to hang out there all night!

We each had burgers and I cannot possibly describe the flavor explosion that they each had! Without a doubt these were the best burgers (and great fries as well) that I have ever had anywhere!

This is our old standby tavern with pretty good food - except for the Gumbo on Wednesday nights. Yuk. Good variety of local beers. This is where the locals go. This is not your high end bar, but its homey and friendly. We go there often with friends and our only real complaint is that on a busy night it... More

Prices and quality are very standard for bar food dine in or to go. Not the most personable staff but we hit it up to change it up now and then. I did like the corn/flour combo tortillas. worth trying I suppose.

Great food. Perfect pub atmosphere with plenty of TV screen for sports fans. Unbelievably good food! Reasonably priced and quickly served. Live entertainment on the weekends. Kid-friendly now on the north side (including north side front entry door) until at least 8 o'clock.
