We visited 2/11/17- We left the mountain and stopped here on our way back to NJ.It`s it the main town far enough away not to draw the crowds.The service and food were excellent.

Calamari was fresh and delicious served with zesty marinara sauce. Steamed little neck clams were clean and delicious. Salmon special was fresh and seasoned rice was delicious. Chicken piccata over linguini was perfectly cooked and very lightly breaded. Prime rib served with a popover and vegetables was a nice size and perfectly cooked. Portions were so large there was no... More

We had delicious seafood and enjoyed our evening with our server, who had a great personality and has been with The Anchor for decades. Walking distance from The Wilmington Inn, where we stayed

We have been going to the Anchor for many years and the food and service have been consistently excellent. Don't miss the wasabi tuna. Eating at the bar is a great way to meet old friends and make new ones. Susan, Taryn and the rest of the staff not only make you welcome, but are always good for off the... More

We have now gone a few times here and we are always surprised at how good the food is given the very reasonable prices. The salad, homemade salad dressing and the great bread that comes with the meals are an added bonus. Last time I had the salmon with a dill sauce that was light and delicious. A must do... More

Went here as a family with 2 teenagers while staying in Wilmington for a couple of nights. Everything was great. Particularly liked the clam chowder (a hit with all of us). The starter salads were lovely and I loved the cranberry things on the menu including the salad dressing and the rice. Would definitely go back

The Anchor was quickly packed the Saturday night we went. Fortunately, we arrived early enough to get a table without a wait. The food was better than expected, with excellent entrees.

Some of the best fried clams I've ever had...comparable to the best places in Rockport/Gloucester/Essex, MA.... whole belly, nice breaded, not greasy. I usually get the appetizer portion which is plenty and add a salad. Service is always good and friendly... this is my go-to place in Wilmington
