Our Favorite Restaurant When We're At the Shore

This has become our favorite restaurant when we're "down the shore" as we say in NJ. There are three different seating areas that each have their own unique feel. The dining room area is a little fancier and we often see people dressed up having a special meal out. The bar room is rustic and... read more

My husband, daughter and her family enjoyed our dinner at Achorage Tavern Restaurant. The adults sat at the bar waiting for our table - the bar area was a very friendly atmosphere. I talked with one gentleman that frequents the restaurant and it was like talking with a family member. He was very helpful and giving us advise on what... More

The place is very old school and quite large. They have different seating areas )don't choose the porch when raining). It smells. If you choose an entree, it comes with two sides an a salad. You you have a total of 4 plates!!! The salmon was great, the sweet potato was awesome. Cole slaw was ok. Definitely a family place.... More

The Anchorage is both a great neighbor restaurant as well as a vacation hotspot. I have been going their for over 20 years and the food, drink, and service is consistently great. There are two sides to the place, one a quiet dining room and the other a more lively bar scene. Among my favorites are the patty melt, the... More

We arrived at 7pm on a Friday evening (they do not take reservations) and were told it would be a half hour wait. No problem, since they have a terrific bar with great atmosphere and ambiance. We wound up waiting 45 minutes but it was well worth the wait. As soon as we were seated, the owner (who had been... More

Stopped by for lunch and was very impressed. Prices are great and $2.00 Coors Light all day. Parking on side and close to bay. Wide selection of lunch items and worth stopping if in area. Also has pool tables and great décor throughout restaurant.

The wait was pretty long but well worth it. We got the broiled seafood platter, burgers and misc kid meals. All were good. The cannelloni was amazing and by far the best meal. Overall a very nice experience.

My adult children and I wanted to avoid the typical Mothers' Day Brunch. Had a fun time at the busy bar. Enjoyed a relatively quick dinner.

This was a very comfortable and accessible restaurant and the staff treated everyone well. If you are in Atlantic City, it is only a short way over the bridge to Somers Point. The food is excellent and fresh. The seafood was out of this world. We sat in a nice dining room with our friends. Went back again the next... More

We went here because my husband had recenlty seen it on a TV show. We were staying in AC and it was a short drive away. Upon arrival we were told there would be about a 25 minute wait but we were seated in 15 minutes, Our dinner was delicious,and the service excellent. We sort of expected to be rushed... More
