Go for the beer

My friends and I used to to love the anchor, but a steady decline in service coupled with unaccommodating customer options has changed our opinion. We had a business lunch with about 25 people where we had called ahead having been told the anchor would accommodate us. When we arrived, the manager would not accommodate us. We were told that...

unique bar food. All very good. The amount of good beers on tap here is amazing as well. Service can be slow at times but still worth going to.

The Anchor is one of the best lunch menus in Wichita. Period. While I've also eaten there for dinner on numerous occasions, I enjoy lunch the most. Great local atmosphere and the service is usually pretty good. If you've never had a BLT with a filet of salmon, then you absolutely must try this! Very affordable, healthy, and, in my... More

On a whim we decided to drop in at The Anchor for a relaxed atmospere dinner. The menu has a nice variety of bugers, sandwiches and "bar&grill"fare. If you like beer you will find a large selection of craft beers. I selected the smoked pastrami sandwich and was surprised at how good it tasted. The smoke and beef flavors were... More

I recently ate lunch at The Anchor with two friends. The restaurant was busy but I noticed a couple of empty tables and a few tables that were empty but needed to be bussed. The hostess took a while to return to the host station and when she did it took her a long time to seat the growing number... More

Atmosphere is great, food is even better! They have THE BEST vegetarian hot sandwich which is the Veggie Philly. Their fries and sweet potato fries are awesome, with a pretty good selection of beer. It's also nearby tattoo and piercing shops, for that much needed beer after! The staff is always pleasant and sociable. Love it here!

Great atmosphere and service. Large portions so come hungry. The chicken sandwich and the Italian salad were very good. The anchor hamburger was huge, but good. Very greasy, but it is bar food. Downside is they were out of a lot of the beers. Was surprised that they had that little of a selection over the holiday weekend.

I decided to come here because I heard of their burger the Haystack which is a open faced burger smothered in queso and fries. I expected just to eat there but when I sat down I looked at their beer menu and was impressed and intrigued with all the options they had. I ended up getting a seasonal beer which... More

We love Anchor and always try to make time for a visit when we are in town. The fish and chips are very good! They have a large selection of beer on tap and in bottle. A must when in town.
