Seafood at its best! Steamed and flavored with perfection. We had Cajun peel and eat shrimp, excellent! Seek this place out as there is a lot of places by here. May not be the biggest or fanciest but food is awesome!

Best seafood in town! The crab legs are phenomenal. And if you like low country boil (shrimp, crawfish, potatoes, corn, mussels, clams) you will LOVE this place! To top it off, the service is incredible! Located in John's Pass, Madeira Beach.

Our whole family just had dinner at the Rusty Anchor. What an incredible find. We were a family of nine with three different generations. We had an amazing experience. The atmosphere is very laid back with picnic style tables. Perfect for our beach vacation attitude....More

Was referred to visit from a friend and was not disappointed! Best steamed seafood in the area and for a good price. Staff was very nice as well. I'll be back for sure.
