The quintessential dive bar of Bev!!! Has a pretty darned good beer selection and very affordable food prices ($6.50 lrg pizza)!!! I believe it's the joint in Bev with pool tables and has a juke box....but it's frustrating when you drop $20 on your music...More

We loved the large bar. The food we ordered was good and reasonable priced. We got King Crab legs which came cracked open for us. Delish! For our meal I got broiled haddock. It was so tasty. Their cole slaw is my favorite. My husband...More

The anchor isn't a fancy date night out but it's perfect for cheap drinks and good food. It's a small kitchen so service can be awhile but with how cheap the drinks are you'll be easily occupied while you wait! Seafood is very well priced!

Our family of four enjoyed a dinner here after about a 45 minute wait (no reservations taken). The fact that it was packed with locals clued us into its popularity. Service was friendly and busy--they were hustling to get everything done. The clam chowder was...More
