Not rebuilt yet

After last year's fire they probably won't reopen until warm weather. Whether the new building is ready or not.

A wonderful atmosphere and a great place to hang out with old friends and new acquaintances. The Anchor Inn is located right on the Rock River as it comes out of Lake Koshkonong. Launch your boat, rent a pontoon, or simply sit and here a great live band on summer weekends!

Had a nice mini reunion this past summer. Great food. Sure hope it reopens. Always packed in the summer... Seems like everyone has a good time.

I've only had the 'bar food' things on the menu but it was all done pretty nicely. The fried foods aren't dripping in oil like a lot of pub-style places & they time everything so it all gets to your table in the best condition possible (for deep fried food). Very good pizza & sandwiches here as well & I've... More

My boyfriend and I used the boat launch by the restaurant for a short kayak paddle after checking in to the Hidden Valley campground near there. When we pulled out, we heard a band playing. We sat on the wonderful river front lawn, eat a nice (albiet simple) meal, and enjoyed hours a live music. Great place and would definitely... More

When we were there it wasn't terribly busy so we had great service and food. We tried the pork rib appetizer and it was amazing. Each of us liked our sandwiches also. Very nice to go by boat or car. Prices are OK, nice seating area and pretty view. We will go back

Burger was top notch and fair for the price. The indoor bar was avg, but the draw is the outisde seating and bar by the water. There was a band when we dined and on a Sunday afternoon with the sun out and some suds, it was enjoyable. Beer is priced fair (3 bucks a domestic) and the burger and... More

I did not rate this place higher because of the band that was playing here on June 20, 2014. It was extremely loud. There were a lot of people here and the band was outside, we ate inside, but my ears hurt by the time we left. We asked the waitress to turn the music down inside but she said... More

We do not live too far from this location (just down river a bit), but for some reason we have never gone here. We were looking for somewhere different one night & ended up here. We both enjoyed a great burger. Had a wonderful view of the river. Service was great too. This will not be the last time we... More

If you're near Edgerton on a Friday night I highly recommend going to the anchor inn. If you like fish you have to get the bluegill basket! I used to think perch was the ultimate Friday night fish fry fish, but bluegill has it beat by a mile! The anchor inn has lots of outdoor seating, beautiful views of the... More
