“Holey Buckets was this place yummy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2014

Who'dve thunk it? A delightful seafood place in Wilmington.

My scallops were so perfectly cooked, I could've weeped openly. Hubby's Bouillabaisse was declared "Outstanding".

this place was hopping. Service was friendly, if slightly distracted.

Not cheap, but worth the money.

“Worth a Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2014

We arrived at the Anchor on a Saturday along with everyone else from Wilmington! What could have been a bad experience was great. Our bartender/server Erin was easy going, knowledgeable and fun. She was attentive and never in a hurry despite being slammed with customers. The food was very good and definitely the right choice in town.

“It's a 'Go-To'”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2014

As locals, this is where we go most of the time. Always good, reasonably priced and the servers never fail to entertain.

“Best Resturant within 100 miles”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2014

The food is excellent. We ate there 2x for lunch and 2x for dinner. The service provided by seasoned 19 year server Larry was superb. The prices are very reasonable. Try the Gorgonzola vinergrette salad dressing, the Prince Edward Island mussels, the lobster, the lobster roll for lunch or the chicken and Brie salad for lunch. On and the UFO beer on tap is ice cold and very refreshing. Say hi to the owner Susan, who works very hard to make sure your meal is memorable.

We immediatly got a table for two. We had a really nice waitress and the burgers we order came with fries and slaw and were really good.
