We vacation at the Jersey Shore every summer. Each year we like to try a new place to check out for dinner and this year we chose the Anchorage. It came recommended from a few people and the reviews all seemed satisfactory. Don't get me wrong, the place is really cool. The food on the other hand, not so much.... More

My husband and I have eaten at this place so many times....brought family and friends and always had satisfied 'eater's'. Even my two teenage granddaughters - and one is a vegan loved this place. Great salads, seafood, chicken and burgers. Never had a bad meal. Great drinks! The bar is fantastic 🍾

I have worked near the restaurant for over 35 years so I have visited the Anchorage often as it is my most favorite restaurant in Somers Point and actually one of my all time favorite restaurants. The food is superb and prices are very reasonable for the quality food you are served. Big hint I don't believe the Anchorage takes... More

I live locally and go to the Anchorage frequently, I have NEVER had a bad meal or poor service; of course at an restaurant in a beach town, servers get busy and may take a few extra minutes to get a meal or drink, but that has never lead to poor service they are always polite and do whatever possible...

Dine in the AC or on the front porch by the water. We chose the porch because it's summertime! Shrimp was perfection! Steaks were superb! Mozzarella sticks were scrumptious. Eats for every single person both land and sea lovers! Wait staff was awesome, constantly filling our drinks. Get dressed up and go!

Sat on the porch for a midweek lunch, where the tables are very tight. Overheard next table's conversation, and the loudmouth four tables down. Buffalo chicken salad offered several generous pieces but they were dry. Hubby had a flavorful fried grouper sandwich special. Service was attentive. Atmosphere outside was okay. Bar was loud and crowded.

Arriving early we had a very short wait for a Friday afternoon; however, once seated we quickly learned after not having visited her in awhile that it was time to abandon ship! The server was courteous; however service was slow going. We arrived early and anticipated a short wait for our rolls and beverages. She took our dinner order and... More

A really good stop on our first trip to Ocean City/ Somers Point. Good beer, good atmosphere, good company. Food was exactly right after a long day at the beach. Don made sure we were well looked after.

Went there for the first time last week. My sister who lives near there suggested going early because they get crowded. We went around 5:00 pm on a Thursday night. We had to wait about 20 minutes which was not bad at all. We sat outside on the porch, it was a little muggy but kept feeling the air conditioning... More
