Great fish and seafood

Anker's have been around for decades. Anker himself retired 20 years ago, but the restaurant is still going strong.

Anker's is an old-fashioned fish restaurant, so it's a bit quaint (which I like). The fish is always cooked well, and it's tasty. My boyfriend is particularly happy that they serve clam bellies, which he can't find any place else around this area.

This has been a favorite of mine for over 30 years! The fish is always delicious and reasonably priced. The place is small we always do take out.

We love the dinners and the fish sandwich is the best! You couldn't ask for a nicer bunch of people and more delicious food. We've been going here for years and love it.
