Great atmosphere, food and service! Love that you can pull up with your boat and enjoy the bands outside on the weekends!

It is hard to beat in the summer. It is right on the river and has good food. Live music most weekends.

The burger I received while eating at Anchor Inn was so full of grease it seemed like the cooks didn't even bother trying to drain it. The waiter did not ask how I wanted the burger done and my table mate who also ordered a burger had one much pinker than mine. (Not consistent). The sweet potato fries were alright.... More

First visit here - we drive by frequently and finally stopped in for a visit. The place needs something to help with the excess noise levels - I would suggest some nautical flags hanging from the ceiling to absorb some of the noise. Large selection of beer and mixed drinks. Several seasonal beverages. One in our party ordered the Almond... More

Stopped on a motorcycle ride and discovered the Anchor Inn is all new and recently rebuilt. The place is great. Full bar and ample Draught beer selection

Ordered the grilled Chicken Cesar Salad. Received a generous portion with a huge amount of grilled chicken. Very flavorful salad but, could have used a little more dressing. I would defiantly recommend & order again.

Never visited when it was the old facility, so I can’t compare, but I assume this is one million times better. It’s laid out well for groups, socializing, and boaters.  We were there on a busy Friday night. There was some miscommunication between the host stand and the servers outside; we were told to seat ourselves outside (host seats inside), but...

My old lady and I stopped in for dinner and to listen to a band on a Saturday night. The drinks were fantastic, the food was great and the entertainment couldn't be beat (Killer Cars). The prices were reasonable and the staff was very attentive. What a cool place to listen to live music right on the water.

This was our first visit to Anchor Inn since it was rebuilt. Building and decor are impressive. We were told about the bluegill dinner so had to check it out. Fish was breaded perfectly. Very good portion. I had to get a doggie bag. Being a Friday we knew to get there early. We left before the band started. If... More

We have been here 2 times within the last couple of weeks. The outdoor seating is wonderful, especially when there is a nice breeze on a not too hot day. We have eaten the fried fish, a fried Mahi Mahi sandwich, a hamburger, and a wrap. Everything has been very tasty.
