I have been to Olive and Anchor several times and have become somewhat of a regular. The menu is not huge, but here is a good variation of entrees. There is always a special that is interesting and helps to provide variety for those who frequent O and A often. My daughter frequently orders the halibut entree, which she really enjoys. I tend to order the chicken pesto sandwich, which is very tasty. Oysters are a big part of the menu, and there is a large list of different preparations. One can tell by comparing the number of diners in O and A vs the other restaurants sharing the same block that people have discovered this restaurant.

This restaurant used to be known as Ya Ya's Oyster House. Don't know when it changed hands but it has been refurbished and what a wonderful change.

Very friendly, efficient staff and Our compliments to the new Chefs.

We shared two appetizer plates, One was Garlic Prawns and the other Ebi Mayo. Both were wonderful. The couple sitting at a table close by had the Tuna Salad which was lightly seared tuna slices and some amazing greens, which they declared fabulous.

Can't wait to go back !!

My wife and myself have been going to this restaurant for many years which was called Ya Ya's Oyster Bar until it's recent change in management and name and on our most recent visit found the food somewhat overpriced and lacking in quality.
We ordered simple fish and chips which is hard to screw up but were served chips that had hardly seen the deep fat fryer and a fish portion smaller than any serving we can ever remember. Service was fast and efficient, but the noise level in the restaurant made our dining experience one that we would rather forget.
While nowhere near the atmosphere for great fish and chips tryTrolls which is right next door which never fails to serve outstanding food.at a reasonable price.
