“Best pizza and seared Ahi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

Great pizza here! Informal, like a British family pub atmosphere. Only takes cash, no credit cards. You line up to order, pay then they bring it to you. Great view over the harbor. Where many of the boat community come to eat.

“Decent food, great view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

Mom, Dad, two small kids. Had pizza and drinks after a long day circumnavigating Pohnpei.
Pizza was surprisingly tasty, and there were vegetarian options which was nice to see. The drinks were tasty and reasonably priced, though not cheap. The location is great -- the restaurant is basically a covered veranda overlooking the harbor and Sokehs Rock.
The crowd at the bar was mostly aging western expats telling bawdy stories, but they kept it decent for the most part. We sat at a table on the veranda and the breeze blowing in from the harbor kept the air fresh. The owner was on-hand, and he arranged free ice cream for the kids. That was a nice touch.
Restrooms were fairly clean. One downside was the menus which smelled like rank mop water. This is often a problem at restaurants when they do not adequately clean the laminated menus. Not a great thing to smell when you're ordering.

“Great Location for Sundowners”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

The Rusty Anchor Bar is not the easiest place to find but once you get there, the views are simply amazing and the beer is cold. Couple of Aussie guys running place and you'll find them sitting at the bar I am sure. I didn't eat but what I saw coming from the kitchen looked well prepared and I saw empty plates returning. Two Pool tables, cable TV and good sofas to sit down at makes this a good location to visit as a traveller looking for a relaxing drink as the sun goes down. In any other part of the world the views themselves would ensure the place was packed but this is Pohnpei so you might find that you have the place all to yourself.
Certainly worth a visit if you are looking for a pub/pub grub, but bring cash as they don't accept credit/debit cards today.

Love Rusty's, good views over marina and fishing club, music, and atmosphere. Pub grub really nice too, pizza's, aussie burger, big steaks,pepper seared tuna, and the kitchen is open very late - sometimes to midnight.
