Salmon BLT - amazing!!!

Have been a few times - cool atmosphere and locals abound. Really excellent food for what appears on the surface to be a dive bar. Outstanding beer selection. Will go again next time I am in town.

In town visiting family and this was a highly recommended place to eat from my brother's friends. I had the steak burger and it was one of the best best burgers I have ever had...juicy and full of flavor. My wife loves blue cheese so she got the blue cheese and bacon burger. She said it was awesome. Plenty of... More

This is a mainstay for me when I visit Wichita. Right off Douglas Ave, this place is easy to get to. Parking, on the other hand, is a nightmare. A small lot sits next to the building, and it's always full. Once you find a spot, getting a seat can be a challenge, depending on the time of day. I... More

Was excited to see a dining option in Wichita open past 8pm, saw a front row parking spot and decided it was fate. Took a seat at the bar and was immediately greeted with the day's draft specials, was given a few tips on their extensive beer menu and was given a cold beer and food menu. I ordered the... More

Really good fried pickles and a few creative cocktails... otherwise, it is your typical pub atmosphere, food and drink. The service was decent and the food was good.

I live here in Wichita and this is one of my go too places. The food and drinks are amazing but the service and the ordering procedures are atrocious. Be prepared to wait for food. The environment is grate and enjoyable. This place gets busy quickly and gets backed up. An electronic ordering system is much needed. But the food... More

I ate here for a business lunch, and it was not really busy at all. I ordered the House Burger (black-Angus beef) and fries. The service time was way too slow, especially for a burger and fries. I really thought that they had forgotten about our order (since we were not seated in the front part, but in a whole... More

Very cool place. I orderd a burger that I'm unable to find online now. But it was made up of trimmings from a local butcher shop and it was spot on. One of the best burgers I've ever had. Fries were good and great selection of beer. Will definitely go back when I make another trip to Wichita.

The Dos Tacos from The Anchor are outstanding. Very fresh and crisp, and you get chips and salsa with it. Very reasonably priced. We call ahead and get it to go! Always great service and great food.

The Anchor has some great burgers and HUGH selection of beers (Tap or bottle). If you happen to go when there is a beer fest going on the selection just gets bigger!
