I haven't been to Anchorage in over 35 years and boy has it changed. All for the better. It's nice from the outside as well as inside. The bar is very neat. Good selection of beers on tap. Good variety of food choices. The food is pretty good. It's the kind of place that feels comfy and cozy. More so... More

We come here two or more times a year. Generally the food is good three out of four meals. Unfortunately I was the fourth. The dish had shrimp, asparagus, tomatoes and mushrooms. The shrimp were overcooked and a majority of the asparagus was the end cuts which were hard and flavorless. The highest marks given to the clams and linguini.... More

First time here and will probably not be back. 1:15 wait but i suppose that is to be expected as it is shore restaurant on a weekend - even if it was late September. There were 5 of us including our granddaughter. Son had pea soup which he said was fine. I had salad which was watery. Felt as if... More

The Anchorage has always been a hometown favorite and has been there for years. On this trip, the food was good but the service was poor. The Chicken Saltimbocca and Shrimp Lorraine were both very good. The rest of our party had various items. The server brought things to the table in piecemeal. We waited for beverages and food for...

Went to the Anchorage Tavern for dinner with a group of friends tonight. We each tried different meals -- entrees included Shrimp, Veal and fish. The meals were all accompanied with the option of soup or salad and also side dishes. The salads were fresh and tasty. The dinners were enjoyed by all of us -- the meal was generous... More

When we checked in on a Saturday in September we were told 30-45 mins for a table so we waited at the bar. After one hour, we had to make some noise at which we were told our table was being set. The food was ok, not exceptional. Service was fine and attentive. The bill was lower than I thought,... More

The wait wasn't too bad to get a table but that was the only thing good about it. The waitress took 25 minutes to come back after she gave out drinks to take our order. The food once it was placed didn't take too long but it wasn't anything great. Once I was almost finished my French fries I found... More

It's beyond me why this place is still always mobbed! The food used to be very good...now almost palatable...service was ok...prices aren't bad but not quite worth the hectic wait. Used to love this place. I had grouper that was swimming in some stuff that was supposed to be crab then tomato pieces were thrown on it...the description claimed the... More

This was a fun place. The food was good, although I would prefer a salad without iceberg lettuce. The servers were very friendly. There were only three dessert choices; the one we had-- a Baileys Irish Cream mousse cake-- was not good; we could not taste Baileys at all and it just was not very tasty. Noise level in the... More
