After the visit from Diner's, Drive-in's & Dives, we've been looking for an opportunity when in the area to eat here. We found one when in Duluth for an event with another couple. One person of the other couple we were with said the burgers and fries were fantastic. Off we went for lunch at 1:15 on a Saturday. We... More

I have been coming to Anchor for years....years. I am their #1 fan. I love the place and the food. I was going even when it was known that the servers treated you bad on purpose. But the service has changed shockingly ...Not only did we wait over 10 minutes to sit down but we sat at our table for... More

It was clear the restaurant was short staffed the night we were there but the service was extremely slow and they forgot to bring part of our meal and our drinks. However, the burgers were excellent and the atmosphere is very unique.

Best burger anywhere, period! I make an effort to go out of my way to get here anytime I'm up from Texas. Great fresh-cut fries too. Dirt cheap prices...awesome dive bar.

Monday for lunch. Sat outside. Service was fine. One waitress was a little grouchy but efficient. It's a bar not the Ritz. Four of us had burgers, split two orders of fries and a pitcher of beer for $22. Burgers done on a flat top with a great char. Fries hand cut and some a little soft and others crispy;... More

My daughter and I were on our annual MC trip. The nite before at her place in the Twin Cities, her landlord after hearing that we were going to Duluth said that we HAD to go to the Anchor for great burgers for lunch. I'm thinking, "right", how am I going to find this place? Well, it is on 35... More

The food was very good as normal, but the service was horrible. It took 15 minutes before anyone came to out table and 50 minutes to get our food. I bumped into several friends that said they sat on the patio and witnessed a table of people get up and leave due to no wait staff for over 20 minutes.... More

You can't get a better burger and fries for the price. Family owned since 1977, this is a great place to stop if you are headed from the Duluth area to northwestern Wisconsin. This a real Wisconsin bar-beer and great burgers! Potatoes for fries are cut on the premises. Don't show up here in suit, tie and high heels. Come... More

I'm sure their burgers are amazing but their service sucks. We went here for a birthday drink for my friend. The older waitress/bartender was rude to us because there were four of us and my boyfriend who was the DD wasn't drinking, so we only got three breakfast shots (I believe that's what they are called). Since my boyfriend was... More
