The Anchor Bar & Grill is a medium sized place with additional seating available on an outdoor patio, when weather permits. Tables are of varying sizes and there is a long bar with seating also. Most of the tables are large enough that small parties will often share them. It serves almost exclusively burgers with a full bar and is cash only. All burgers come with chips but you can substitute fresh made fries for $1.25. There is a good selection of tap and local beers. Prices are very reasonable. All that said, even if you’re not hungry but in the area, it’s worth a stop just to look around. The place is packed with collected nautical memorabilia. Service is friendly but not overly chatty. If you go at prime hours expect a crowd.
The burgers are thick and although I ordered the Big Burger, unless you’re really hungry I would advise picking from the regular burger menu. The Anchor burger was 2 regular patties put together but not with extra cheese on a nicely toasted bun. The meat was tasty but quite lean and so I would also recommend adding the sauteed onions to give it some juiciness. Fries are fresh made from potatoes in the tiny kitchen and vary in crispiness but the taste of potato is there and they are satisfying. There are no desserts unless you order a sweet drink. It’s funky fun but the atmosphere is the best part of the experience.
