A bar first, burger joint second.

The Anchor is a classic shipyard bar with an instant feel of comfort and history when you walk in. Find a seat, start drinking and take in the sights and feel of the place before getting to impatient to order one of their signature burgers. Come with an appetite and a designated driver.

We were here on a Saturday afternoon. The place was packed. We got lucky and slid into an open table. But you might have a little wait if they're busy. The fries are worth the wait! This is not a fancy place, but if you want a great burger and fries and a cold beer, go here. There's plenty of... More

Huge, greasy, cheap burger. This place is always packed. Don't expect to be greeted and seated by wait staff - you have to be proactive to get served. My husband likes to go for the 'experience'. Personally I think it's way too greasy, but worth the experience...once.

This is a BAR! But in Wisconsin any age kid can be in with their legal guardian!! I had the Anchor burger was great! Asked for medium rare and was told the kitchen usually won't cook them that way. Mine was medium rare, and tasted awesome! The fries are really good! The only bummer was with my beer, it seemed... More

We went to the Anchor based on a recommendation from a friend and we weren't disappointed in the burgers. The interior decor was very cool with all of the ships and other marine items. The only negative on this visit was that the service wasn't that great but I've heard from others that they had great service, so it may... More

You must go here!! Yummy burgers, and there is so much to look at, the walls are covered with nautical memorabilia... They opened at 11am, we were there by 11:10, before 11:30 they were completely full... Nice outdoor seating... The staff is very busy, but still are attentive... Can't wait to go here again!!

We went here with the idea that it was a "restaurant." Wrong! It's burger and beer bar. The waitress just took our order when I said I wanted a "medium" cooked burger. It was like, you take what you get. When I saw the grill on my way to the bathroom, I knew that what I got was what I... More

We are here while on a hockey trip to Duluth. The burgers were awesome!! The waitress wasn't very friendly at all but maybe that's typical for dive bars?? The place was packed so we had to sit out on the patio but I hear it's a popular place. I will say that they only take cash so make sure you... More

Saw this bar on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives and had to stop on our next vacation. After hiking at the near by Pattison state park, a burger was sounding delicious. We sat immediately and could not stop looking around at the nautical artifacts that covered the wall and ceiling of the bar. The menu has a variety of burgers only... More
