Tasty Salmon BLT

The Salmon BLT sandwich here is incredibly tasty. The salmon is seasoned nicely and is moist and not dried out like others I have had. Swapping out the regular fries for sweet potato fries is a must! These are some of the better sweet potato fries I have had. Aside from the food, Anchor has a... read more

I had a grilled chicken sandwich with sweet potato fries, which were just fantastic. The sauce in the sandwich was really tasty yet not overwhelming. The fries were just out of this world. I had a huge mound of fries that I didn't think I could finish, but I was wrong. I cleaned the plate! Be prepared to be stuffed... More

Honestly, I am having a difficult time understanding why this restaurant is so low on the list. The only answer I can come up with is that locals lack imagination, and apparently taste buds. I went here yesterday with my husband. The establishment was clean, our waitress and the rest of the staff was super friendly. And the food... OMG.... More

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!
