Walking into The Anchor builds your anticipation only because of the number of people there! Shocking actually - even on a Wednesday night. They don't take any reservations, and only seat complete parties, so it can be a bit frustrating, but it's not keeping people away. After a bit of a wait we were seated in a great booth and... More

Huge pieces of beautiful fish. My kids even commented on how awesome it is. Great addition to an already cool neighborhood.

The Fish & Chips, were spot on! Fish was cooked perfectly, friendly staff, yes, there was a bit of a wait to receive the food after ordering, but the wait was totally worth it and we are willing to wait for great food! Can't wait to go back, this restaurant is always fantastic!

This is one of the best fish and chips meals I have ever had. The fish was moist and very tasty, and the chips tasted great on their own with no condiments needed. This place is small and there can be a long wait on weekends, but on a Thursday night around 7:30 we only had to wait five minutes... More

This place usually has good reviews, and for good reason. I'm a big fan of fish and chips. The fish fillets were tender and big. Fries were tasty too. Limited outdoor seating and it gets crowded.

If you love fish and chips, this has to be a stop for you. Great atmosphere for a gathering of family or friends. There is some variety on the menu - both food and drink. Be ready to wait a bit in the small entry...but definitely well worth it.

A huge piece of Alaskan Cod is perfectly fried in special oil, sprinkled with salt. The chips are like steak fries served with white vinegar. The British use malt vinegar. They open this small pub like joint at 4PM and the lines waiting to get a table start around 5. Not open Mondays but serve an Irish brunch on weekends.... More

I have to eat here a couple of times a month as I crave the fish and chips! I've gotten used to the white vinegar and enjoy the beer selection. Have had fantastic servers and chatted with the owners on occasion. I recommend tracking down their food truck around town as well!

Great service, great atmosphere, and the best fish I've had in years! This will be a place I'll visit every time I'm in the cities!
