Irish fare can be bland as the misty moorlands, but that's not the case at this jam-packed Northeast chippery. (They don't take reservations, so expect to put your name on the list and then go get a drink across the street at the Peacock Lounge.) The short, affordable menu - nothing costs more than $10 - consists of the hearty, traditional fare that two of the owners, Irish expats, grew up on, right down to the baby-food-style mushy peas. The fish and chips are crispy but mild--for more flavor go with the mashed-potato-frosted Shepherd's Pie or the fried-egg-and-ham-topped Helicopter Burger. Better yet, go on a weekend for one of Anchor's authentic Irish breakfasts: The Full Whack is piled with everything from eggs and beans to black and white pudding to bangers and rashers.

Sure, we have plenty of "fancy" options for the humble French fry in the Cities -- cooked in unexpected fats, served with exotic seasonings, and served up like some kind of haute cuisine dish. If you are looking just for flavor, it is hard to beat the "chips" at the Anchor. It starts with the potatoes, which are freshly cut and then deep-fried to a brilliant golden tone. Add some simple seasoning and you have a perfect potato package. Hot from the fryer, the chips are golden, crisp, and... More »
In these, the halcyon days of the gastropub, the French fry is being taken very seriously. There are excellent spuds in many of the higher-end dining rooms about town, but to a purist, the perfect French fry needs neither a béarnaise nor a truffling nor a silver serving pail to be seriously good eating (and spending more than $5 for them is just nuts). Luckily, the fries being served up at Anchor are simplicity itself. The potatoes are hand-cut, blanched, fried to order, and tossed in... More »
It seems counterintuitive to forgo the titular specialty at a fish and chips shop, but Anchor's team of Irish expats pulls off a better burger than their American brethren. And it might be concerning to order something whose name conjures up a medical emergency, but trust us on that one, too: The Helicopter Burger at Anchor is worth risking an airlift to the nearest hospital. The patty is simultaneously dense and tender, with a rich, beefy flavor. (It's made from grass-fed beef from the... More »
I stopped by Anchor Fish & Chips for lunch during the 2010 Art-A-While weekend. The placed was packed, but I was glad I waited for a table. I loved the quaint ambiance and the food was excellent. The bathrooms were immaculately well kept . . . which is always a good indicator of the pride the owners and staff have in their establishment.
