Guy Fieri's 'Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives: Triple D Nation' features the Anchorage Tavern in Somers Point, New Jersey in its latest episode on the Food Network premiering Friday, Aug. 19 at 9 p.m.

Fifteen years into the Food Network's "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives," Guy Fieri has been double-dipping at some of his favorite spots in the Triple D Nation over the past few seasons.

On Friday night's episode, the celebrity restaurateur and chef will visit the Anchorage Tavern in Somers Point, just outside Ocean City. The show previously featured the South Jersey restaurant in 2015. 

The description for Friday night's episode, "From Fried to Sides," is as follows:

This trip, Guy Fieri's throwin' everything in the fryer! His first stop is an O.G. Triple D in Knoxville, Tenn., where the pizza, onion rings and fried chicken come straight to your car. Then, crunchy crab cakes are gettin' all spiced up in Somers Point, N.J., and a popular pub in Blue Ash, Ohio, had to make more room for their crispy pig tails and humongous hot dogs.

The Anchorage Tavern, built in 1874, is the oldest, continuously operating business in the town of about 10,000 people. The empire-style building was among a number of local tavern-hotels where tourists came for fishing, bird hunting and food. The establishment survived through Prohibition as a hotel and Italian restaurant, becoming famous among revelers in the 1960s for serving seven beers for a dollar. Ocean City, just over the Ninth Street Bridge, is still considered a dry town.

The menu at Anchorage Tavern is highlighted by seafood offerings from baked lobster macaroni and cheese to fresh flounder, crab cakes, clams and Italian specialities.
