Not rebuilt yet

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

We were waiting for 10min. and no acknowledgement. It was on Jan. 24th at 5 P.M. We went to the management and complained. They started pointing fingers at one another. No apology! We walked out. Customer service is not their top priority. This was our 3rd visit and our last.

We were travelling South to Illinois from Green Bay, and this was the perfect stop! The people were very friendly and fun....the food was amazing and the view spectacular! I cannot wait to go back in the Spring/Summer months when they have bands and the place will be hopping with fun! Thank you Michelle (our server) for a great stop... More

I went to the Anchor Inn on a Saturday in late October with my wife and another couple. My first impression was that it was extremely loud. We didn't have to wait too long for a table even though it was quite busy. The table was a very small high top by the large windows overlooking the Rock river, it... More

Brand new makeover! (Fire destroyed the original) Excellent sports bar with over 10 flat screen tvs! Food was over salted but still tasty. Pricing was over inflated due to new costs. We expected Price to be higher but it was inflated over their old menu quite a bit. We will go again to review after they have been open a... More

Frozen patties for a premium price. New and very nice rebuild after a fire. Old place was small and quaint with good food and reasonable prices for being on the water and/or a vacation area. New place appears to be trying to make up ground with higher prices. Also, sandwiches and burgers don't even come with any garnish as chips,... More

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
