Anchor bar is a hidden gem— great location, friendly staff, well priced drinks and excellent food. We had a prime front row table overlooking the view ( book to make sure ). We shared 3 share plates- they were all great, flavoursome, well presented, and...generously sized- 3 dishes were enough for dinner for us ( a couple) Friendly vibe, with customers from kids to seniors.More

Had three people and everyone loved their meals. The restaurant looks over Airlie and the atmosphere was relaxed and great. The staff were so friendly.

Beautiful food and lovely view of Airlie. The staff were amazing. I had my little 14 month old and they were great with him including make sure I had a private space to change his nappy in the absence of a change table. I have...food allergies and the staff were so helpful. Great night out!More

Such a pretty spot in Airlie Beach. The red sky over the ocean was stunning. We also ordered two burgers (beef and chicken) and they were amazing. I didn’t want chips with mine and they allowed me to swap it out for the duck salad....Super friendly staff and a great location! Highly recommended.More

This bar has a great vibe and view. Meals were very yummy although a bit on the smaller side, but still very enjoyable.

The view was great, but the cocktails were very ordinary. This place was recommended to us, but disappointed with the very ordinary Expresso Martini. Tasted like a syrup rather thn liquer.

This little bar has become mine and my friends absolute favourite place! The food is AMAZING and fast, the sunset is always beautiful up here and the staff are always so happy (which really says something). We particularly visit for the waitress Shavon because she...always greets us with a huge smile, friendly attitude and looks after us like we are her friends/family. She is a speedy little hard worker that I think any business should be proud of because not just myself, all my friends love to visit because of her! Thank you Anchor Bar for always being the best! PS BEST FISH AND CHIPS IN AIRLIE BEACH!More

Staff were very accommodating and friendly. Oysters Kilpatrick left a lot to be desired. Oysters great but kilpatrick tasted like a bottle of Worcestershire sauce very strong not liked at all. The rest of the meal cant be faulted with the fish croquettes being amazing...and stand out, steak very well cooked.More
