Filled with renditions of popular Newfoundland and Labrador songs and tunes, sprinkled with one-liners and wit and occasional display of culture, this group of five has become one of the most widely-attended acts in the whole province. Almost by accident, and practically overnight, the ANCHORS AWEIGH band has found its way onto the list of "things-to-do" for local residents and visitors alike.

We had heard that the seats fill up quickly so decided to eat at the pub where the band plays. The service wasn't that great from our initial waitress but the next waitress was nicer. The menu is limited on the nights that anchors aweigh plays not even allowing minor substitutions for a burger. But I digress... The band was... More

That was the best entertainment ever!!! At first we thought oh 3 hour show - that is long we will probably not stay for the whole show. We could not leave. It was so much fun and so entertaining. Book ahead - it was packed. You can order pub fare. Have not laughed so much in a very long time.... More

A must see show. Book ahead as the chances are minimum to none to get in if you're on the waiting list. Goes to show what a great show this is! Great music and great jokes. Frequented by tourists as well as locals. Some of the talents in this group also run the BonTours boat tours and are a joy... More

Truly enjoyed this talented group .... It is a sold out show ... And hard to get tickets. They perform three nights a week. Go early to get good seats ... A hint ... There is a slightly elevated spot to the right of the stage and you have great sight lines. The group is excellent and you certainly get... More

Great pub with good food and excellent service. We couldn't get reservations for the musical production on Wed. But we joined other travellers at the Thursday evening Kitchen Party featuring great local music and story telling. The musical production that we couldn't get tickets for is so popular you need to book well in advance.is so popular

Group is very entertaining. Energy galore. Not what I would call a kitchen party but extremely good local talent. No fiddle music which we were hoping for but they made up for it in energy and fun. Show only on every other day so hard to get tickets when on a short stay. Book in advance of arrival. Any seat... More

This show was really, really funny and very well done. We saw a couple other 'dinner theatre' type shows on the island and this was definitely the best. The performers were talented singers and musicians and thanks to the sound technician, the sound quality was spot on. The venue was nice and relaxing. Great price on bottles of wine. The... More

A decent band played a pretty good concert. I wouldn't bother recommending them to anyone. Seating and food/drink service was also a bit of a gong show.

When I had booked our bed and breakfast in Jan/16, the owner had suggested that I get tickets for this show. She said to book early as it is always sold out and she didn't want us to be disappointed if we couldn't get tickets. I recommend that you reserve your tickets as soon as you know you are going...
