a diner from Boxford, Ma.
My wife, daughter and I had our evening meal on a Thursday. The restaurant was very busy, but after a short wait we got seats at the bar. Three local young men moved so as to get us three seats together. The sea food we had was excellent and the value is incredible. The group at the pool table was straight out of Beverly hillbillies, and very funny.

My boyfriend and I went to lunch with his family at the Anchor Pub near the Beverly bridge and it was terrible. We sat and waited for 20 minutes for an unfriendly and unwelcoming waitress to take our drink order. She screwed up my order (which was simply water with lemon) and made it very evident that she was bothered when someone asked what they had available, Pepsi or Coke. We waited 15 minutes for our drinks. She buzzed away so quickly that we couldn't put in an order for appetizers. When she finally came around to take our order, she was so rude in rushing everyone that she screwed up writing down the orders and it showed. When our food finally came out, 30 minutes later, my club sandwich was soggy, the ham in my sandwich was ice cold, the bacon was burnt and my lettuce was discusting and yellow. My boyfriend's hamburger was way over done, the bread was stale and she forgot the lettuce and tomato. His sister's chicken parm looked like it was out of a pre-packaged meal. The chicken was rubbery and the sauce was bland. His mother's fish sandwich was greasy and tasteless. His dad's baked haddock was unseasoned and the squash was cold. This place was not busy at all so I don't think there was any excuse for this terrible experience. When the waitress finally appeared to ask how everything was, we very politely let her know that it was not good. She literally said nothing, walked away and came back with the bill, no compensation at all. I will say the pub fries and the french onion soup was great but I will never, ever eat at this place again. If I had more than 2 thumbs i'd put them down too.

Very good food and the portions are enough to take home leftovers. Wonderful pasta dishes, burgers and seafood. Something for everyone.
