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.

Second time we have been here but most definitely not our last. Stopped one evening last summer and sit outside for a burger and beer. Stopped for lunch last week and was just as pleased as our first visit. We had the House Burger and the Tacos of which both were quite tasty and the waiter was both helpful and... More

The Anchor has been a place in Wichita that I have frequented on and off over the years. From it's beginnings it has gone from a bar to a more relaxed dinner and bar. I came in on a Saturday night for one of my final Kansas meals and was not disappointed. I stuck with the House burger, medium well... More

Love The Anchor for business lunch, happy hour craft beer, or late night burgers. Always delicious burgers or chicken wraps/sandwiches. Try some of the craft beers or ciders on tap. My fiance loves the Haystack.
