Every time we go to the Anchor, we are not disappointed by the food. Always fresh ingredients, local if possible, and sizeable portions. Lots of variety on the menu. Something for everyone. Service is great. I had my favourite - the open faced hot roast beef sandwich and came away smiling again. Quality is better than any of the roadhouse... More

The food here is consistently decent, no matter the meal - breakfast, lunch, or dinner. The staff is very friendly, and were super at accommodating some tricky allergy requests. Definitely try the local-caught fish for dinner, and pretty much anything for breakfast.

We've been travelling to the North Channel to sail for more than 30 years. The Anchor Inn has always been our special treat when we re-provision in Little Current. This last time we did breakfast, lunch and supper at the anchor. The quality of the food is consistently good as is the service. Prices are average but not exorbitant as... More

We got the local Whitefish and it was very good but not great. Staff was very amiable and attentive. Salads were ample but average. Good value and I would say 3 1\2 stars.

I cannot rave highly enough about this restaurant in tiny Little Current in Northern Ontario. Being from a larger urban centre, I would be impressed with this quality of food downtown in my home city. It's not a budget eatery, but I notice that for most things on Manitoulin Island. Prices are generally a bit higher everywhere when you don't... More

Anchor I, Owner at Anchor Inn Hotel, responded to this review

Hello Hiker: Thank you for your kind review, and in particular for commenting on Denise. She is pretty amazing, and we are proud of her and all our staff efforts. Extra special when someone takes the time to recognize their efforts. Yes our building is old, built in 1888, but has great bones and we invest in it every year.... More

Sure it's a nice place with a beautiful lakefront foreground, the service was excellent and the place is busy (which is always a good sign) but pricewise for what you get is a little steep. At $2.50 for a glass of pop that's smaller than 355 ml can and no refills... that's a bit rough. One thing for sure is... More

Anchor I, Owner at Anchor Inn Hotel, responded to this review

Hello Go MN: Thank you for your comments and we are sorry you found our place expensive. Your right, our pop is $2.50, but we usually give free re-fills if you ask. I think we give away as much pop as we sell, as it is free for designated drivers in both our bar and dining room. We have two... More

We stopped here for supper one evening and were able to sit in the shade on patio. Service was prompt and food was excellent. Put this one on your list.
