TWO OWNERS // PIZZA, SPORTS & GOOD TIMES
If you are looking for some of the best pizza in Orange County, a casual laid back atmosphere, plenty of TVs to catch up on all the latest sports, and maybe even a little live music, then make your way to Original Pizza II / Anchor Bar. With its prime location directly next to John Wayne Airport, and across the street from Newport Beach Golf Course, this hidden gem is worth seeking out for any sports fan and/or pizza lover.
OPII / Anchor Bar, a collab of various enterainment concepts and two well known names around town and in the restaurant/bar industry, covers all bases in this sports bar, pizza place, live music lounge.
To the delight of locals throughout Newport Mesa area, Rudy Kaminski, a twenty year old veteran in the bar business, and a sports enthusiast of the highest order, and Steve Kalatschan of the Original Pizza / TK Burner family of Southern California, a lifetime resident and keeper of the family receipts, joined forces to make OPII (as the locals affectionately refer to it) one of Costa Mesa/Newport Beach favorite hangouts.
Nobody knows pizza better than Steve who brings a traditional and now legendary family recipe to the table started by his father over 50 years ago. Founded in 1963 on the Newport Beach Peninsula, the original Original Pizza and its East Coast style pizza was a favorite destination of tourists and Newport locals alike. Due to its long-standing success, Steve decided it was time to branch out and open a second location but wanted to offer a larger experience than just great pizza.
Enter Rudy. A lifelong sports fan and an expert in his field, Rudy knows how to bring the ultimate sports experience to the bar, and the ultimate bar experience to your sports. With plenty of TV's all the major sports packages via Directv, a strong pouring hand, and love of sports that is second to none his enthusiasm is contagious.
Calling this just a family friendly neighborhood sports bar would be selling it short. Sure they have a game room for the kids, host local little league and its soccer parties, but they definitely have something for everyone.
Together Steve and Rudy has established an easy partnership that provides a more relaxed atmosphere, (unless its a Packers v. Cowboys game day) community camaraderie, and regulars who call themselves friends.
