Anchor Oyster Bar Reviews

  •  The seafood is awesome and it does take time for waiting!

    55555 by Bruce Tien


  •  Sit at the bar and order the steamer special.

    33333 by Patrick Strange


  •  Of course the oysters. Clams and/or muscles w/extra bread to sop up the broth. Garlic bread is really good. Open-face crab and shrimp melt, and chowder made my tastebuds happy too.

    55555 by TheDL


  •  Fantastic cioppino. An additional order of garlic bread is in order

    33333 by Chong Han Chua


  •  Great clam chowder! 🐙

    55555 by Bret Weinberg


  •  I love everything and feel lucky it is in my neighborhood!

    55555 by Gina White


  •  Start off with one of the excellent seafood cocktails; we love the oyster shooters ($8.50 with soju, $3.50 without) and tasty combination ($14), which includes crab, shrimp and prawns.

    55555 by Tasting Table


  •  Get the amazing garlic beard or go to Hell without passing GO!! Wink.

    55555 by T.J. L.


  •  Have a glass of wine across the street at Swirls. When you write your name in the waiting list, include @swirls so they come get you.

    55555 by Yuria Hirai


  •  Get the cioppino!!! It's not on the menu but if it's crab season, they'll hook you up :))

    55555 by Francesca H.


  •  Best garlic bread!

    55555 by Daorong L.


  •  Took me 4 years to find the perfect clam chowder!

    55555 by Dana F.


  •  Everyone should get an individual cup of clam chowder, the cioppino to share and extra garlic bread to line the belly.

    55555 by Shawn C.


  •  Definitely try the crab cake appetizer

    55555 by Keith S.


  •  Clam Chowder all the way! Shrimp Cocktail is amazing (the horse radish sauce clears your sinuses! lol)

    55555 by Alan M.


  •  Chowder chowder chowder!

    55555 by Rahn S.


  •  What can I say. OYSTERS! The best

    55555 by Stephen L.

    55555 by Rahn S.

    55555 by Andre M.

    55555 by Andre M.

    55555 by Bobette P.

    55555 by Wojtek B.


  •  Delicious crab "burger" with chowda

    55555 by Josh S.


  •  Best cioppino EVER

    55555 by Elaine M.


  •  Best dining experience I have had in a very long time... Bravo

    55555 by David S.


  •  Try the Clam Chowder - Yummmmm (via @Foodspotting)

    55555 by Dana O.


  •  The secret cioppino will make you lick your plates clean! Bring your own wine as they do not charge corkage fee! The wait is well worthwhile, but do not attempt with more than 4 people.

    55555 by Norbert H.


  •  Always get the cioppino, tons of shellfish and stew is not overladen with tomatoes! Go early or be prepared to wait, there are only 4 tables and a couple of counter spots.

    55555 by Tiffany M.


  •  Well worth the money. The staff is friendly and the restaurant is clean. Nothing you eat here will disappoint you. No matter what you order you've got to eat their clam chowder.

    55555 by Sophia


  •  Get. The. Cioppino. Share it with everyone you know who wants to experience the best seafood medley stew in the history of america.

    55555 by Sloane E.


  •  Amazing seafood. Freshest oysters ever and pretty yummy crab cakes. Was fun sitting at the counter. Will definitely be back.

    55555 by Jacquie C.


  •  Always with great food. Ciopinni is a must have. Pasta dish is always impressive. One of my favorite seafood restaurant in town! I recommend anything on the special menu...

    55555 by Jenny L.


  •  The best seafood I've ever eat

    55555 by Vladimir V.


  •  Great little fish place

    55555 by Davide C.


  •  I should elaborate. Checked in on the board at 5:21 pm on a Saturday. It'll be over an hour before we're seated. It's 6:14 pm now and there's one party before us.

    22222 by Bonnie C.


  •  Wait time at least an hour. What we should've done was put our names down and went around the corner to Castro Wine for some wine tasting as we waited but, FYI,, they only seat full parties.

    22222 by Bonnie C.


  •  Wait is long so brave yourself. But the chef sends out clam chowder to calm those impatient souls :)

    33333 by Kingsley L.


  •  Try the Cioppino - Double order! You will regret your trip here if you don't try the Cioppino (via @Foodspotting)

    55555 by Alec H.


  •  Try the clam chowder.

    55555 by Anton S.


  •  Garlic bread + crab cakes. Get 'em.

    55555 by David F.


  •  Cozy little spot with amazing service. Best clam chowder on the west coast

    55555 by Karla R.


  •  Clam chowder to start is a must. Then order the cioponnio and the anchor special and you'll be in set. PS make sure you write the time next to your name on the board when you check in.

    55555 by Patrick L.


  •  Expect to wait at least an hour, but it is totally worth it. The Cioppino is always available even if it isn't listed. If no Dungeness is available, they call it Italian Fish Stew

    55555 by Alec H.


  •  The Anchor special is a must! The garlic white wine with thyme broth for the clams alone is worth the full cost.

    55555 by Mike H.


  •  If there is a long wait. It's well worth it. FYI- they serve you FREE clam chowder while you wait.
