IN MEMORY OF "TOMMYBOY" ANDERSON

 
FRIENDS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME
My name is Bean and I manage the Anchor Bar.  When I started here  I thought it would be a short term job.  Little did I expect to still be here 35 years later.  Together, Tom Anderson ( the owner) and I worked to keep this business "afloat."  To our great sorrow we lost Tom at a much to young age on June 23, 2008 due to cancer.  We are keeping his memory alive through his sons Adam and Arron in this business.
ABOUT THE ANCHOR
We are a small but a very unique and popular establishment. We serve burgers and fries(that's it folks-no chicken or fish)and according to many people we have the best in the, well I have heard city, twin ports, state and world so take your pick. Many times we get very busy and crowded. We have very limited seating and staff so keep in mind we are not a fast food place. For the most part people say it is worth the wait. We have only one deepfryer and a small grill but put out lots of food on it. Our prices are down right cheap compared to other places so if you are in the mood for good inexpensive burger stop by.


Along with a extensive number of microbrews and we have still managed to keep a small neighborhood type atmosphere. We have a nautical motiff but along the way other stuff has been introduced and found a nitch in the building. We are always adding more stuff for people to look at. (I hate to go to a bar and stare at beer signs-don't you?)
Our crowd is very mixed ranging from doctors, college, sailors, longshoremen, politicians, truckers, bartenders, families and people from almost all walks of life imaginable. You can reconize us by the large ship's anchor we have moored next to the building.
