Neat old tavern but the food is really good. Service has always been great View of the bay and marina. We've eaten in both the dining room and the bar area and have never had a problem.

Celebrated the New Year by having dinner here with friends. Luckily we only had a 10 minute wait since it is the off season for the New Jersey Shore communities. We tried to visit in the summer and the wait was over an hour. They do not take reservations. You have the option of 3 different seating areas: the bar... More

The Anchorage has a terrific menu, and everyone's food in our party of 5 was delicious. The prices are reasonable, service professional and friendly. They have a convenient parking lot. I prefer sitting outside when weather is good, but inside seating good also. Their chef's salad is excellent.

Been here many times for lunch or dinner, but never sat at the bar to eat. The bar is the place to be if you like to socialize or just be in the midst of it all and to watch the bartender be his best! We had a couple of local brews and bar food. I was a tad disappointed... More

We stopped here on a whim coming from Marmora last Sunday. It was early, so no wait for a table. The crab bisque was very good. Everyone liked their dinners, but my father did not like the fried oysters with wasabi--he complained they were soggy. It is a bit noisy, and where our table was positioned, there were people walking... More

If buffalo shrimp is on a menu I have tried it. I have probably tried it in hundreds of restaurants across the country. This is hands down the best in the country. Most people Coke here for the bar scene but the food is great. French onion soup, flounder franchise, Oscar stuffed seafood, you can't go wrong. You have to... More
