We were boating Sunapee for the day and stopped here for lunch. The docking was very convenient and the food was great!

Well we were trying to get a little lunch and the waitress came out and told us the kitchen was very backed up and they were not seating people now. We had only been to the Anchorage a few times before and we did not go back. They didn't offer to seat us in the bar nothing just the kitchen... More

While on a Sunday cruse with some friends we ended up traveling through Sunapee and decided to swing into The Anchorage to have drinks on their deck and relax by the water. Even though it appeared to be very slow and there were almost no diners inside the restaurant we waited for about 5 min before a hostess came to... More

I live in a tourist town so I know how difficult it can be at the end of a busy summer. I'm a local here and decided to try it for a mid week dinner. We walked in and had to wait a while until the hostess came to seat us. We asked if we could sit on the outside... More

Great lobster rolls & other seafood. Gets very busy & you may have to wait in the bar but it's not usually a long wait even in the rain.

I can't say enough bad things about this establishment! The prices are astronomical, the staff is not friendly, the manager is a nasty man that truly doesn't care about his customers, and the food is atrocious! Do yourself a favor and pass this place by! The only thing going for it is it's outdoor scenery. There are two other awesome... More

Exploring Lake Sunapee shoreline, I found the Town Dock at Sunapee Harbor where the ships operated by Sunapee Cruises are. The M/V Mount Sunapee II was done with scenic tours for the day; the M/V Kearsarge was going out on a dinner cruise at 6:30 PM. Tickets were $39.99. Seats were assigned. The only available seating was on the upper... More

Way over-priced. $23.00 for a lobster roll....okay, the setting is one of the best around, right on Lake Sunapee. But their prices are outrageous. I live here but won't be going back..

We landed a nice table on the deck within the wait time quoted - but all else was a disappointment. The menu choices are limited - everything is breaded or deep fried. A lobster roll with chips was $23. We opted for nachos and could barely eat those. We also got chicken wings but could not stomach them. The sauce... More
