When it comes to seafood, the Jersey Shore has plenty of restaurant options, but one Somers Point restaurant stands out according to Cheapism.com, which scoured reviews and rankings by expert food writers and countless hungry customers to find one of the best seafood restaurants in each state.

With so many places throughout the state to consider, which local establishment stood out?

The World Famous Anchorage Tavern at 823 Bay Avenue in Somers Point.

Sure, being featured on "Diners, Drive-ins and Dives" raised the profile of The Anchorage Restaurant — but locals didn't need any convincing. The tavern has been a Somers Point staple for more than a century, and New Jerseyans have watched it evolve into one of the most lauded eateries in the state.

One of the things that stands out about The Anchorage is that it is the oldest continuously operated business establishment in Somers Point, dating back to 1874 and many locals know about their generous portion sizes.

New owners, Michael and Tracey Fitzgerald took over the place in 2023 and have added not only amazing seafood but other options to the extensive menu.

They have a ton of seafood options on the menu, ranging from appetizers to full entrees.
