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.

This is one place we have to stop by every time we are in town. The food is good - fish and chips are wonderful. Husband is quite the beer snob and he is very happy with their selection and price. Just so you know, apparently they are aren't accepting groups of more than 12 anymore. It can get a... More

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
