Anchor Down

Anchor Down Seafood Bar and Grill Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

So we finally settled on a place for New Year's Eve.  A place none of us had been before.  But the price was right, the menu looked intriguing, and they promised live music.

And it lived up to expectations.

Buried among the boatyards, it's a small, intimate restaurant, beautifully decorated and very cozy. 

Service was friendly and efficient.  The manager, Jen, was very helpful in seeing that our large party was taken care of properly. 

The live music was provided by a very talented young man with a guitar.  We found ourselves signing along with him frequently.  Eventually his performance was supplemented by a DJ playing dance tunes, and yes, we got up to dance.  In that small bar area, a lot of people managed to dance and have a great time.

And the food?  Well, it was a special holiday menu, not their usual fare.  My surf and turf  -- a fillet mignon and half a lobster -- was very well prepared.  I really loved my appetizer, scallops in a sherry cream sauce.

I am sure we will be back to try their regular menu.
