Located in the heart of the Village of West Greenville, The Anchorage is a casual neighborhood restaurant focused on serving our local community thoughtfully prepared small plates, craft cocktails & beer, and sustainable wine.
Our goal is to provide a meeting place perfect for anything from a special occasion to a quick dinner before heading home. Our menu is eclectic but with a clear focus on showcasing simple ingredients sourced both locally and from around the region.
Our hope is that by working hand in hand with our producers, artisans, and local craftsmen we can offer a unique dining experience with a few surprises and a genuine sense of hospitality. In 2018 The James Beard Foundation recognized the restaurant as a Semi-Finalist for Best New Restaurant. The Anchorage was also a Semi-FInalist Nominee from The World Restaurant Awards for their “No Reservations Required” category.
We hope to see you for dinner soon at The Anchorage!

The Anchorage is proud to support Horseshoe Farm, a unique partnership between Grower and Chef. In working hand in hand to supply as much as possible to our restaurant, we both benefit from the relationship and feedback from our counterparts in the kitchen and on the farm. Our Hope is that this unique perspective will allow for more diverse and delicious produce in our local area.
Nestled on a pristine 21 Acre Plot minutes from Downtown Travelers Rest Our Farm is surrounded by natural water sources, biodiversity, and unscathed woodland. While we are an operating production farm the goal is to protect the natural balance of the surrounding land. Using organic practices and embracing modern techniques we aim to work hand in hand with nature to ensure our farmland is healthy.
