We ordered and shared the spinach/artichoke dip and were served FRESH, WARM,, JUST made chips. Delicious!! Light not... read more

We drove here after seeing the Anchorage featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. While the entrees my husband and myself enjoyed were very good ( stuffed flounder and the caneloni) we were not impressed with the fried clams or calamari we got as appetizers. Our friends each had shrimp dishes. Our server was very abrupt but everyone else we encountered... More

The Anchorage is favorite when were are in Ocean City, NJ. Menu is extensive with something for everyone's taste. Dana, the hostess is always helpful in seating us!

It is a really nice place to ear outside if it isn't stormy. Service can be slow at times. Food ranges from fair to good depending on the day.

The Anchorage never disappoints, whether you want bar food or restaurant dining, you can have it at the Anchorage. I eat there whenever I'm in the area and have never been disappointed

The Anchorage was a pleasant surprise in several ways: first, we got right in on a busy Friday night. Second, although our waiter looked very young, his manners and menu knowledge were first class. Lastly, for an old building (it is a historical landmark) largely patronized by locals, the food reminded me of top-notch restaurants in Baltimore and Washington, DC-... More

Saw this restaurant on DDD. It was the best. I had Seafood Posolipo and it was to die for. Huge portions and I enjoyed a full meal of the leftovers the next day.

The atmosphere was fun, the location and view very nice but the rest of my experience was a letdown considering the prices and all of the hype. The service was rushed - my salad came before I was finished with my appetizer and my entree came before I was finished with my salad, with no room on the table as... More

Me and my husband ate here last night. I had seen it on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives, and luckily we had plans to be in the area just 2 weeks after seeing the episode. I truly can not say enough about this restaurant. Everything was absolutely delicious, and everyone on the staff was so kind and attentive. We had mozzarella... More
