I can't believe I have never been to the anchor. Excellent service and food. Our server Larry was super friendly and a longtime employee. I knew I should have gotten seafood but I was craving some steak. I got the bleu sirloin and it did...More

Came yesterday for lunch. It was good. Came tonight for dinner. Meh. I had seafood special and my wife had baked stuffed haddock. Both had WAY too much breading.

It was very busy place. We didn't have any reservations. I had french toast with bacon. My daughter had a haddock sandwich with white vermont cheddar. Food good. Waitress seemed overwhelmed.

Had the horseradish encrusted salmon......oooolala. It was perfect! Veggies fresh and crisp, great salad . Our waitress was so attentive and efficient. We wanted for nothing and was warm and welcoming. Definitely will come back.Also found the prices were not unreasonable.

In a recent visit to Mount Snow, we found this gem of a seafood restaurant. The dishes seem fairly traditional with an Italian influence (like fra diavolo, pasta sides, etc.), and are well prepared. I was very pleasantly surprised to find steamer clams on the...More
