How to Get a Seat:
The Anchorage is a first come - first serve restaurant but we also offer our wait list option every night. If the dining room fills up we will activate our wait list below. You can add your party online or by calling the restaurant. You will receive a text message with your estimated wait, a link to show parties waiting in front of you, and we'll text or call when your table is ready. If you are not present at the restaurant when your table is ready you may be bumped down the list or removed if there is no response after several attempts.
The Waitlist and standard service is reserved for parties fewer than 6. For Parties of 6-8 reservations must be made in advance using our booking system. These reservations include a tasting menu that is reflective of the a la carte experience. Please see our FAQ section for more information regarding large parties or feel free to Book Here!
Join the Waitlist below. Please include whether you would prefer to sit at a table, at the bar or first available.
The Anchorage will be closed for the holidays from July 4th - July 9th. We will reopen for dinner service on Wednesday 12th.
How do I make a reservation?
We will not be taking reservations to allow for our local clientele to ensure they can frequent the restaurant on a whim. We also encourage you to support our surrounding businesses and artists while you wait for your table.
If the wait list above is inactive come on down and grab a seat. If the waitlist is active you can add yourself through the box above. Click the tab above for access to the list and to see how many parties are waiting. After you request to add your name you will receive a quoted time for your table, a link where you can check your place in line, and will receive a text message when your table is ready.
Large Parties (6-8):
We're excited to announce that we will be taking two reservations per evening for parties sized 6-8. These reservations will be released as a week block four weeks in advance (i.e. The week of February 27th 2017 will be released January 30th). These reservations will be taken online through our reservation system. Click Here to Book!
Where do I park?

Right next door is a first come first serve city of Greenville lot.
What’s the Corkage fee?
