    My problem with Anderson's Restaurant is that the price tag was far and above the quality. The sides were pathetic. There was something like a dozen fries and half a dozen very small slices of cantaloupe. The sodas were flat. The main dishes both the Guemas Burger and the Beef Dip were good, but once again small. We went inside after lunch and got waffle cones for dessert. The ice cream was tasty but when we got down to our cones the ice cream disappeared, the large waffles cone had just a single scoop on top of the cone and nothing at the bottom. I spent over $45 on lunch and dessert , which I don't mind paying for a good meal with great view. I left Anderson's feeling ripped off and cheated. Upsides The view was amazing, Friendly Staff

    I love Anderson store restaurant! You got us right in when we got off of the ferry. I think our wait person was new... I would suggest taking empty dishes when folks pay for meals (even if it means taking other table's dishes.) Overall, great experience. Love it when kids can come! Thanks

    A great place to bring a date. Walking over on the ferry, the small town atmosphere of island life and the view of the sound and boats going by. A nice diversion from Anthony's, The Farm House Inn or LaConner. Plus, the music makes it worth the effort to come over.

    We arrived on Father's Day morning on the ferry--all 6 of us including 2 grandkids. We had the incorrect ferry schedule and needed very quick service in order to make the last returning ferry before the lunch break. (Missing it would have meant a 2 hour wait with two small kids.) They were incredibly accommodating, and managed to serve a great brunch very quickly, allowing us to avoid a long wait for the ferry. We'll be back when we aren't so rushed. Weather was cold and rainy but will be much nicer when weather improves.

    Our party enjoyed a pleasant evening at the General Store and Restaurant. The food was great, the entertainment was well, entertaining! We will most certainly go again!

    We went up to Anacortes for a meeting & decided to grab a bite to eat rather than battle the traffic on a Friday back to the city. I popped open Open Table to see what Anacortes had to offer. On this particular Friday only 4 restaurants had availability, & in an unusual way decided to try Anderson’s General Store, it was solely based on the pictures as there were no reviews yet. What a great experience it was! We took a small foot Ferry over to the island ($2.50 round trip, 8 min ride) & a short walk to the restaurant. We sat facing the water & enjoyed some amazing food, the staff was very pleasant and the view was great. This isn't a white table clothed environment, but if you are ever in the area I highly recommend trying this place out!
