The Anchor is a great place to get a bite to eat and have some awesome beers. The beer list is a craft beer masterpiece with some very hard to get local and hard to find beers both on tap and in bottle. The food is very good as well and the service is fast and friendly.

Food was awesome. I went a bit off track and got the Salmon BLT; truely a great sanndwich! One of my sons had a Meatball Grinder, the other had chicken tenders. Not only were the great, they filled my boys up and these boys know how to eat! My wife chose the Midnight Marauder, essentially a Cuban Sandwich and it... More

I was driving from Dallas to Lincoln and we were looking for a place to stop for a quick bite. Being foodies, I had to realize we might not find the best quickly. My boyfriend used urbanspoon for the best restaurants in Wichita and Anchor was one. Based on the description I picked Anchor and I am so glad that... More

We went there late hoping the kitchen would still be open. The place was busy but we were seated quickly and had a choice of locally and regional craft beers. The food came quickly and the portions were more than generous.

The Anchor has a huge selection of beer on tap, and tons more in the cooler. Excellent food, not typical "bar food", and moderately priced. They serve a Sunday brunch, complete with a do-it-yourself Bloody Mary bar. On top of all that, they serve fancy coffee, espresso and the like. You will not be disappointed here! No smoking, and kids... More

I ate here with a decent sized group and they were very accommodating. The beer selection is top notch, and would like to come again just to try some of the more unique selections. The food was all very good, everyone in our group enjoyed their meals. Basically, the menu consists of typical bar food, but with unique takes on... More

Great burgers/sandwiches. Maybe the best in Wichita. Prices are good, service is excellent. Maybe the best burger in town!! This is a large restaurant, perfect for large groups. Fun atmosphere in the old section of down town Wichita.

Average bar food. Nice atmosphere. Try the porters but not more than 2. What a head you'll wake with.

We ate lunch on a Saturday afternoon hoping to watch some college football. For a bar, I was surprised that there was only one television in the entire place. The food and the service was good. We particularly liked the sweet potato fries. Each of us ordered different types of sandwiches ... all of which were very tasty. I would... More

We try to eat at local restaurants as much as we can, but tonight it was not going to happen. On a Monday night at about 5:45 p.m., we asked for a table for two, which seemed to be an easy request to fill considering the restaurant was nearly empty. Boy, were we wrong! We were informed that management had... More
