Everything was improved from my first, good service, great food, good atmosphere. I will be back.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMSo good!My first time here, and already planning my next visit! The scallops were to die for. I cannot wait to go back, however, the main crisis I face is whether or not I try something else or go for the scallops because they were that phenomenal!!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMOysters are amazing.If you like oysters at all, this would be the place to go.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMnew spot in the citycrisp white wine was delicious. The oysters ( that were on special ) were good too. We split the sandwich which was tasty if too bready. the Fennel, grapefruit salad, maybe a special or just recommended, was refreshing. Quick service. We ran down and ate prior to hitting the Playhouse....worked for us!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAnchor's AwesomeFish is amazingly fresh, tasty, and presented beautifully. I'd go back in a minute.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat patio with view of park!We always love The Anchor, and this time we sat on the patio on a lovely Friday evening, watching festivities in Washington Park and Music Hall. It was delightful!
We had one of the fish specials and it was superb.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Anchor was a wonderfulThe Anchor was a wonderful dining experience. Interesting seafood items, as well as familiar ones. The server was helpful, attentive and informative. The location near Washington Park and Music Hall is perfect! The food was outstanding.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat spot by Music HallThis was our first time and it won't be our last. Can't wait 'til the weather warms up to enjoy it outside.
Great spot, great seafood right by Music Hall. Since it was our first visit, our server helped us a lot with our selections and gave us really good advice. The salads were very good but our main courses were terrific. Very fresh, simply but nicely presented. Service was quite efficient.
If you're going to Music Hall (and like seafood), The Anchor is on the northwest corner of the park and a short walk to Music Hall. We could park once, enjoy a leisurely dinner and walk to the venue. So convenient. No fussing with valets or feeling time-pressured.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMmaybe the best seafood in Cincygreat selection of seafood. I didn't know what to try first. Wait staff a little too anxious to clear the table.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed our dining experienceWe enjoyed our dining experience and look forward to returning.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was amazing.

Service was awesome. Food was fantastic!!! Will definitely be back soon.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, friendly staff,Great food, friendly staff, uniques wines not typically available. One of our new favorite places to go!4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMBest place for seafood in the NatiVERY pleasantly surprised by this place I had never heard of until a friend suggested it! Service could not have been better - and I do not say that lightly. I am always worried when I take the leap for sea bass because I LOVE sea bass, but therefore I am so picky about it and sometimes disappointed. This was like no sea bass I've ever had and was wonderful. The whole fish comes to you on a plate and your server will debone it for you right there - tasted almost like lobster! Server said it came with grilled veggies when I ordered, and apparently realized later that it was a la carte. He simply told me his mistake and brought the veggies anyway free of charge (and they were AWESOME)! And you can't go wrong with the lemon thing for dessert!4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat addition to Cincy food sceneThe food was beautiful and tasty, the service was super friendly and the ambiance was pleasant. Excellent all around.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMSat on the porch overlookingSat on the porch overlooking Washington Park and Music Hall, what a great view, very relaxing.

Food is simple and great. Drinks are terrific. Servers very friendly.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were not happy with theWe were not happy with the noise level. We could hardly hear each other talk. The waiter said that you can request a quieter table in another part of the restaurant. I doubt that it would be much better. There isn't much space and lots of people so I doubt that it is possible to find a quiet spot.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice experience. LocatedVery nice experience. Located just accross from Washington Park. Easy to park. Neat to see this area coming to life. Food is excellent.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMYummylisious!We had been unable to celebrate our 36th wedding anniversary until last Saturday evening. We decided on the Anchor because we had heard so many wonderful things. We were not disappointed! Our waitress was very helpful and upbeat. The food was beautifully plated and tasted even better! The woman next to me gasped "What is that?" when my order of brussel sprouts was delivered, I insisted that she try some of mine before I had even tasted them. They ordered some for themselves as just a taste of them is far from enough.
Over all a most delightful evening, we will return.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service, especiallyGreat service, especially for our group of New Yorkers. They LOVED the food.

I look forward to coming back and trying many items off this amazing menu.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMDrop ANCHOR here.Have been here several times; consistent high quality in food, service in an unlikely (and burgeoning) area of Over-the-Rhine. A rather small-but-satisfying seafood menu with some tremendous traditional fish and a few twists on conventions. The wine list, while also a bit limited, is nevertheless thoughtful and excellent.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
