    The Anchor specialty, a goetta and cheese omlette is pretty delicious. Try a 'Bob and Dickwitch' if you like chicken tenders. Coffee is great, and so is people watching. The bar crowd shows up at 2..

    Large portions at cheap prices, Anchor Grill is a Covington greasy spoon that nails goetta and eggs, burgers and grilled cheese--with an old-school ambiance and weird puppets.

    Go to Anchor Grill if you have a hankerin' for second hand smoke. If you don't smoke, you'll be the only one there who doesn't.

    If you're hungry and appreciate friendly late night service this is the place to be. service time will vary but your order is accurate 90% of the time. try the anchor special or the Turkey bacon club.

    Love the food, but they only take cash and don't let you to have 2 sides that are both potatoes (e.g. 2X side of fries) or 2 sides that are both fruits/veggies (e.g. applesauce and macaroni salad).

    Food is very satisfying. don't expect hand and foot speedy service. Go to ihop if that's what yer lookin for. Support the local mom an pop joints, eat here and leave yer critic at the door.
