The service is great. The beer is cold. The seafood is the best. Fish and chips, the fried flounder are fantastic. Sandwiches are very good. A cheese steak is ok. Again, the beer is cold.

I recently went to the Anchorage for a girls’ night out. We ate appetizers on the heated porch and had a wonderful time. I only wish they would take reservations as it is very busy.

Yes, during the summer months there is a long wait. Depending on how large your party is, you might want to see if you can make a reservation.
