WE had dinner twice at the Anchor this past weekend....The food is very delicious and the staff are really friendly and efficient. Food is creative and tasty and the portions won't leave you going home hungry, which is a big plus! Sweet potato fries are excellent and so are the salads.. Setting is nice too, right on the channel so... More

I had the pickerel dinner one night, and the fish tacos the next! Both meals were delicious. I particularly enjoyed the home-made bread pudding with Jack Daniels butter sauce.

Hello Icewomen: Thank you for your review of our Hotel. Yes, the fish we serve is fresh, the whitefish we feature daily is the local favorite ( and also used in our fish tacos) and is commercially fished in the cold waters of the North Channel by a company called Purvis Marine. Our Hotel opened in 1888 and I think... More

We had heard a lot about this unique place located in Little Current on the Manitoulin Island so we took a side trip from our visit to Espanola. It was probably the worst ever dining experience in a long time. The service was poor at best, the server was chewing gum, and looked like she was in a hurry to... More

Four of us had the bison burgers one night and it was a unanimous hit!! Sweet Potatoe fries on the side, please. The locally supplied whitefish was delicious another night. Their homemade broccoli soup was declared 'the best ever tasted'! I would definitely rate this place 5 star for taste!

We stopped by here for dinner on our motorcycle tour around the island. Nice old fashioned place with good waitresses and great atmosphere. We had fish tacos and a beer on tap. The tacos were nice and fresh and tasty!! Would definitely return!!

The service was excellent. Food was very fresh and homemade. The fish tacos were crisp and tender, (not greasey like other places) with fresh salsa and homemade sauces. Their flatbreads were awesome too with our favourite being the proscuitto and asiago. The server even recommended a spicy sauce to bring all the flavours together. Our friends also had fish and...
