Blue Anchor at Spruce Street Harbor Park

The Blue Anchor/Spruce Street Harbor Park
Columbus Blvd. and Spruce St.
Official site
Status: Now open

Spruce Street Harbor Park, the Delaware River waterfront's mega pop-up for the summer season, is now open — and with it, a new, floating Garces Group restaurant and bar called The Blue Anchor. The restaurant and the park (which includes a boardwalk, gardens, a crazy number of hammocks, and more) will remain open through August 31.

While the boardwalk is lined with concessions like hot dogs, fries, and water ice, the Blue Anchor will provide more substantial meals, plus local beer, wine, and cocktails. The restaurant's brief menu pulls from popular items at Garces' Village Whiskey, with a selection of burgers (including the Village Burger), fries with braised short ribs and Sly Fox cheddar sauce, and a Cracker Jack sundae.
