From the Kitchen: Seafood, Steaks, and Sandwiches
We’ve shared with you a little previously about what goes into sourcing the best seafood, steaks, and sandwich ingredients. In this blog we want to tell you about our daily offerings, so you have a chance to try all of our delicious foods, at unbelievably reasonable prices.
Dubbed “Monday Madness”, Monday’s at The Anchor offer ½ OFF our entire raw bar. This is a great opportunity each week to sample some fresh seafood from the raw bar that you may have not had a chance to try. Our raw oysters are top shelf. Served with melted butter, cocktail sauce, crackers, and all the fixin’s, they are a real aphrodisiac. The peel and eat shrimp are a local favorite and if you are a little more adventurous, the Louisiana Crawdads are a savory delight.
Tuesday’s offer gourmet tacos stuffed with fresh fish, tender shrimp, crispy fried gator tail, or a number of other delicious meats for only $2. Also a big, healthy order of crunchy tortilla chips with salsa will only run you $2 as well. The birria tacos are especially popular!
All the ladies in town love Wednesday’s at The Anchor. It is a great opportunity to sample some delicious wines from our vast selection at ½ the regular price. We also offer our famous “Anchor Wings” bathed in mild, medium, hot, suicide sauce, BBQ, or Honey Garlic (the honey garlic is a favorite for big party and catering orders!) at 50% of the regular menu price. I mentioned the ladies…in addition to Wine & Wing Wednesday, ladies also enjoy $2 well drinks all day!!!
As we roll into the weekends, Thirsty Thursday is how we get the party started! ½ off our wide selection of beer is happening all day, every Thursday. We have some amazing microbrews on tap, including various concoctions from local brewers like Due South and Funky Buddha. The Anchor is definitely the place to quench your thirst on Thursday’s!!!
Recently added to the lineup is Flatbread Friday where we present some of the most delicious flatbread pizzas in the state of Florida. Made with all the freshest ingredients and brought to you for only $5 each with toppings only 50¢ each, it becomes a waterfront taste of Italy.
Finally, when the weekend arrives, we are ready to enjoy #LAKELIFE ! The Anchor recently extended it’s brunch hours to include ALL DAY Saturday and Sunday. Endless Mimosas and Bloody Marys are only $9.95 and the new brunch menu is getting rave reviews. Many weekends we also offer some very special entrees such as our renowned Lobster Ravioli and a Surf & Turf that’ll make you want to keep coming back, so make sure to check with us on the weekend dinner specials.
The Anchor Bartenders Bringin’ the Flavor!
We happen to think we have some of the best bartenders in South Florida because The Anchor Bartenders are always bringin’ the flavor. Going to the local pub or watering hole has long been a place of community. Our full liquor bar and her crew is ready and waiting to mix some tasty shots and cocktails to make your experience at The Anchor something for the record books. Here are just three drinks that you might want to try next time you stop in…
The Summer Treacle
A refreshing version of the classic Old Fashioned transfigured for Spring and Summer. The Summer Treacle is made with Dark Rum, a couple dashes of Angostura bitters, simple syrup (or raw sugar), a floater of apple juice and an orange peel to garnish. Soooo good!
Made famous by the infamous James Bond, the Vesper is a dangerous version of the classic martini. 3 measures of gin, 1 measure of vodka, ½ measure of Kina Lillet, shaken till ice cold, with a thin piece of lemon peel for garnish. Where’s Q?
Classic Mai Tai
A classic Mai Tai made with white and dark rum, orange juice, triple sec (or Orange Curacao), Orgeat, and lime juice
No matter what you decide to go with, we encourage everyone to drink responsibly and to mix things up a bit…try something new this spring!
The Anchor Music Delivers Delicious Sounds
A smorgasbord for your ears, The Anchor Music continues to work diligently to bring our guests some of the best sounds to relax, dance, and just hang out with friends. We have our usual suspects with Tuesday Night’s bringing your turn to get in the game with Rasta Love inviting you into an ‘off-the-chain’ karaoke experience. Wednesday night has DJ Arce droppin’ the hottest dance beats for Ladies Night. DJ Mike Collins of MBC Entertainment is usually keepin’ Friday’s fresh and then we have a host of local artists coming in on the regular to keep the party going!
