The first night we went to the Anchor Inn, it was very crowded. Once we tasted the food, we could understand why. The seafood is classically prepared and done just right. I had a seafood platter with just about everything you could dream of on the large fish shaped plate - lobster, scallops, shrimp, mussels, halibut and swordfish.

The next day we came back for lunch. We ate on the porch, but it was probably too chilly for most people (October). The corn chowder and clam chowders were savory sweet and delicious.

We came here with high hopes, and our anticipation grew while we had trouble finding the place. The entry into the restaurant had promise, as the rooms were interestingly decorated with some style. However, we were led to a table at the front of the restaurant, where the lovely views were obscured by plastic sheeting on the windows. We had no idea whether this was temporary, but no-one told us otherwise. Looking at the menu, we realised this was going to be a pricey meal, so some just ordered starters and we didn't order any wine. My crab cakes were recommended by a friend, but I thought they were disappointingly bland. And at nearly $19 I expected more than fries and a rather limp said to go with it. This was easily our most expensive meal out of our Maine holiday, and the one which we enjoyed the least. Pity, as the waitress was pleasant and helpful and our eager anticipation turned out to the the best part of the evening.

This has always been an annual stop for many years for our group from NY (State) but probably will try another next year. Sat. night special halibut was cold and undercooked, one meal of combo 3 only had 2 items on it, and service was very slow. Mentioned this at a very good restaurant a few miles away on a subsequent night, and the waitress said, "I've been hearing that". We usually follow up another night with a meal at their sister restaurant in Damariscotta but noticed on-line that they now charge for breadsticks!?! Didn't go there.

If you are looking for a very nice place to eat in mid coast of Maine try the Anchor Inn in Round Pond Maine. It is off route 32 which is off the beaten path, but well worth the visit. Their fish and seafood is excellent and their prices reasonable. Our service was excellent and you have views of the ocean as well.

A beautiful, sunny fal day in Maine. We sat on the deck under an umbrella. Service was quick. order taken. first course of goat cheese sald with dried dates HUGE order of fresh onion rings fried to perfection. Delicious -- but my salad was without the pistachio-enrusted goat cheese. Quickly remedied and delicious.

Main course of fried clams -- tender and not greasy. Excellent. Home made cole slaw and potato salad a perfect complement. Bill came to about $46 without tip.

Recommend. Casual fare for lunch but extensive dinner menu.
