I love the Anchor! It's one of favorite restaurants, I've never had a bad meal here in well over100 times here. The owner is also a lobsterwoman and is something else a genuine treasure. Great bartenders and crowd spanning every generation. Just a great comfy place.my absolute favorite hangout place.

The food was OUTSTANDING. Our first visit we had lobster and the fish and chips and our next visit we had the chicken parmesan. Both were great. This place has a huge bar, side dining room, pool tables in the back-sports on the TV and music playing later on. Its a bit divey but if you know that ahead of... More

We had breakfast after my nieces wedding in this local pub and the service and food was very good. It has local flavor, the people are very friendly, very reasonable and I would definitely go back again.

I had a good lunch here last month. The bar was packed, but we were able to sit in the dining room. My grilled geese and fries were tasty and everyone else enjoyed their food as well. The bar looked fun, hope we can sit there next time!

This is the place you remember as a kid, a local neighborhood restaurant/ Bar/Pool and a great gathering spot.

You can't beat the prices and the portions at the Anchor. We love going for dinner and breakfast on the weekends. The staff is great. Be prepared to wait as the bar and dining room fill up fast. Cash only!

We first visited the bar to try another restaurant in Beverly. We both enjoyed hamburgers which were huge. The anchor pub burger came with Chili, bacon and cheese. The other was a deluxe burger- bacon, onion, cheese and tomato. We both sampled the pub fries and sweet potato fries which were nicely seasoned and cooked. We did have room for... More

This is a great local pub with inexpensive lobster, fried fish and a good selection of sides. Waitstaff is quick and friendly. We had lobster roll and boiled lobster, jalapeño poppers, and onion rings(a bit too much batter). Stick with beer, plenty of choices on tap. Avoid the wine.

Anchor is a. Old world waterside workman's bar restaurant. Was better in past. Not a place I would travel because of choice. Place of covenience with little competition around it. Too many men & women drinking alcohol early in the day. My car was being repaired at ZINI'S thus, walking distance. A poorer version of a 'Cheers'. Maybe a place... More
