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.

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!

Food was better than I expected. I had the chicken strips with fries. The fries were great. Wife had the club. That club is the biggest I have seen. I ended up eating half of it. The only thing that could have made it better was some Italian dressing. Great place to eat befor or after drinking.

Fabulous bar. Great beer selection, and good service. We had a great time. I wish we had had an opportunity to eat there as well. We felt like we were in our element. The Auntie Mae's of Wichita...!

Folks reading this would do well to take note of the repeatedly horrible service that this place seems to dish out. Unless The Anchor's owner Schane Gross changes her policy concerning substitutions for side items on her menu at this establishment, I WILL NOT EAT THERE AGAIN. I love that the Anchor is independently and locally owned, but as a... More
