Great place due to COVID they have adjusted and offer picnic tables to eat outside attire limited inside sitting. Food was great and the view great.

Anna's is takeout only. They have several tables outside that over look a pretty bay, with lobster boats. The lobster roll was reasonably priced and loaded with lobster. Also, the people are very nice. I called ahead because they have strange hours because of the...pandemic. Lobsters are available with mayo or butter and made fresh. Everything was ready when I arrived. After our experience at Spinney's, we visited Anna's twice during our visit to Phippsburg.More

then order a clam basket. The clams will be few and the French fries a plenty! Service is relaxed and you will need to ask for silverware,salt, ketchup etc. Coleslaw is different ...more vinegary than typically available. View is great although no shaded areas so...it can get quite hot.More

We tried Anna's Water's Edge Restaurant for the first time on our recent visit to Maine, and we enjoyed it so much we returned for a second lunch. Chowder, haddock sandwich, lobster roll and fried clams were all fresh and tasty, served by a friendly...staff. Its unique decor includes all kinds of nautical paraphernalia. One of the few places to dine near Popham Beach, its definitely a good option for a casual lunch or dinner.More

We have enjoyed Anna's for a LONG time and was always a family tradition. We stuck out good and bad cooking and different family owners, and basically seen lots of changes. I think there was a good stretch though where not only the service was...consistently good, so was the food. There was a time that everything tasted very homemade. Maybe the changes go with the moods of the owner? The last few years we noticed a different vibe. The servers seem to do the best they can and I can say they usually are very good and friendly. Now, why did I rate this as average? If you want basic lobster, a baked potato, and a lettuce salad with packaged dressing, then it is fine. Somedays it is nice to have a lobster meal inside especially on a rainy day. The prices are not that bad. I would not bother to order the other items though because those seem to be expensive for what they serve. The soups used to be a lot better maybe 5 or more years ago. Let me now share with you my most recent experience which was August 2018. I had booked for my family a reservation since it would be 13 of us. We were told to come only at 5pm which is fine. I entered the restaurant early. The server showed me the tables and I asked her if it would be ok if we took some photos outside of our family before the sun goes down. All the servers were so friendly and positive and said "of course" and "take your time"! Then we heard this loud scream from their front door. The owner or whoever was yelling at us to get inside. She could have walked over and spoken to us and asked us to come in because it was just a few minutes after 5. She could have explained kindly that we had the table for 2 hours and they want to make sure they serve us well and not to lose time. Instead, I quickly ran up to the restaurant and the owner continued to speak harshly to me with a frown, not neutral bland, but outright rudeness to me. I could not believe how we were treated! The next thing was I had a fish hook in my haddock. I nicely showed it to our server and who took it to the back. At first she apologized (of course it has nothing to do with her) and then nothing. No one said anything. No one came back to the table after that except to quickly serve us and get away. We spent a lot of money in 90 minutes. Most of our party ordered meals around $25 and up, ordered alcohol and even a bottle of wine, appetizers, etc. Then not even a thank you. I think what bothers me the most here is that our family has been loyal customers for many years. I don't remember not going there. We had private dinners and rehearsal dinner, etc. and my daughter always said how she expects her wedding rehearsal dinner to also be at Anna's. At a small place like this, they should recognize the families that come year after year. Sadly, this chapter is done.More

I enjoy a lobster roll here. Neighbors paddle across from Cundy's Harbor to eat here. The outdoor spot is peaceful and enjoyable. It is only open seasonally. They, like most have a hard time keeping labor when school is in session. The seafood is fresh...and good.More

I've been coming here for years, love Anna's food and the view is hands down amazing! Prices are very reasonable and portions are huge...I love this place, it's become a must do whenever I'm anywhere near the area.

Really enjoyed this place. Headed back to Bath after some time at the beach and we found Anna’s. They graciously seated us just before closing and we enjoyed a yummy dinner. My kids enjoyed the complimentary goldfish crackers.

We tried Anna's because it was local to where we were staying. We ordered Lobster Rolls which were basically lobster in a roll nothing added to spice it up. The clam chowder seemed watery but the Service was Good. No complaints. Would we go back?...Only if we were staying in the area again.More

We find ourselves returning again and again to this casual oasis with fantastic seafood. We eat at the outdoor picnic tables that overlook a quiet waterway. Indoor tables are also available.
