We came in for my Birthday lunch. We had 2 Sprites with Freshly fried calamari. Nice & Crispy not chewy at all. Then we had the daily special of fried fish & coleslaw and fries with a add on of Steamed Peel & Eat Shrimp....Our server Brian was absolutely perfect and on cue. The food was better than anticipated. The service rocked! The lower dining room had amazing ocean views but the Bar area had its own awesome vibe. We love Flagler beach but a great restaurant with amazing ocean views & ice cold air conditioning on a July afternoon is amazing : ) Forgot to take pictures because we consumed everything so quickMore

Seemed as if we were bothering staff. Wasn't busy yet seemed rushed and chaotic. Plenty of staff on floor. Soup was tasty. Salmon overcooked and dry.

We asked a stranger walking along the beach, which is a good restaurant in the area. He mentioned The Anchor. It was a 30 minute wait, we sat at the bar and met TJ the bartender. He was very busy bartending and waiting tables, time...went by quickly with TJ's great personality and conversation. We had the privilege of being seated in his station. He was very knowledgeable about the food, and he loved his job. We ordered both soups.. excellent! The clam chowder loaded with clams,and the crab soup..yum. The shrimp and Mahi tacos were superb! We met the owner, she greeted us and shared her story as to how she and her hubby started in the restaurant business. We raved about the service from the moment we stepped thru their doors. She told us TJ was her son. It's a family owned and operated restaurant. The team flowed smoothly and helped one another. We went back 2 days later and we're not disappointed, we enjoyed the Smoked salmon, the soups and fish tacos again 😋 To go we ordered chicken wings and steamed garlic clams. We saw TJ, he ordered our drinks and Brian was our server. He was great! I highly recommend The Anchor.More

, I ordered a dozen raw oysters and a stuffed flounder.. The oysters were very small about the size of a quarter and over priced for the size. I ate them because I didn't ask about the size. They brought our my "stuffed flounder" a...filet rolled around crab meat. Called waiter over thinking I had got the wrong order. He said that was their stuffed flounder. I told him their menu was very misleading a stuffed flounder was a whole fish split open and stuffed with crab meat. Had him take that off my tab and paid and left to never return.More

Gary we never intended to mislead you with our menu description of the flounder. As a result we responded to your concern. Disappointed you choose not to return when we did handle your concern.

We went for a quiet dinner on New Year’s Eve. What a wonderful time. Staff are all pleasant and welcoming. Our waitress was Laura who was outstanding the whole evening. Never had a bad server there. We weren’t sure what to expect on the menu....They had a special one for the evening. My husband started with the crab cake and I had the Oyster Rockefeller both were delicious. I had the Caesar Salad, my husband had the House Salad. They had 5 Entrees to pick from. I chose the Trigger Piccata which was delicious. My husband chose the Shrimp & Sea Scallops over Fettuccini which melted in his mouth. Because it was a special evening we bought ordered dessert. I never had Crème Brûlée but I wasn’t disappointed. He chose Chocolate Decadent Cake. We had a wonderful evening! Again this was a Special Menu. There regular menu is just as good.More

I would select this place for lunch as it is quite casual and just not a dinner place for me personally, unless you are going for a lighter fare. It is across the street from the ocean which you can see if seated by the...window. Service was good, fish and chips ($11.95) was plentiful and delicious and the fish tacos were very tasty ($13.95). Would definitely go back if in the area for lunch.More

Our reason for coming to the Anchor, was the review and menu selection!! They have a great and friendly lunch staff!! Had the fish and chips plate W/ their own coleslaw. The coleslaw was one of the all- time best coleslaw anywhere in the States!...The view is nice, because it is across the street from Flagler Beach. Would DEFINITELY recommend this great place along your travels on A1A! Just three miles before the Anchor, I purposed to my g/f Beverly on Beverly Beach. She said YES!!! Thank you for reading!!

We met a friend for an early dinner at this restaurant, only to find it was impossible to carry on a conversation. There is not soft surface in this place to absorb any noise. The recorded music was exceptionally loud; luckily the live music had...not yet started as am certain it would have been even worse. The food was good, but not exceptional.

It was wonderful that we were able to make reservations. They also have their own parking lot. Our waitress was efficient and friendly. They offer plenty of options on their menu. We had dinner with another couple and we were all happy with our dinners....I ordered the stuffed flounder which is served rolled with a cream sauce. My husband ordered a fish and shrimp platter. The dinners come with a choice of salad and 1 side. Unfortunately, we were too full for desert.More
