The Anchor in Newport


Famous for fine seafoods, pan fried chicken, prime rib and New York steaks.

The Anchor in Newport [641 Highway 101]  invited guests to “enjoy the friendly atmosphere of the Marine Room, Captains Room, or the beautiful Marlin Room & Lounge.”

Sheesh, how big was this place?

Great signage:

Lost or not? Any idea folks?

  1. It’s gone, has been since the mid-1960s. My mother worked there, cocktail waitress and relief bartender. There were some great stories about the place, the locals called it the ‘Anchor Crackpot’. The bar was intimate, the dining rooms adequate, the food world-class. Used to get senators in when they held the Dorchester conferences.
