The Anchorage Tavern is the oldest continuously operated establishment in Somers Point. The three story wood structure with its slate roof and original lighted “BAR” signs on top has been operating since 1874. It is located in the beautiful Bay Historical District at 823 Bay Avenue. Donald Mahoney, chef/owner since 1998, considers himself to be a lucky guy to have purchased a piece of Somers Point history.
The patrons of the past were as diverse as they are today. Every age from young children to the elderly can be seen enjoying the ambiance and pleasant atmosphere. The memorabilia on the walls brings back memories of well known people and places.
The Anchorage was voted the “Best Local Restaurant“ in The Press of Atlantic City.
If you want a peek at local history, a friendly hello, a wonderful meal or a refreshing cocktail at our bar, The Anchorage is the place to go.
