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

If you are looking for a local place with a lot of flare, this is your place. You can't go wrong eating here or drinking here! Try a giant mug of beer and a burger! $10 will get you a long ways at this place!

Look elsewhere if you need linen tablecloths and fawning waitstaff. Anchor Bar and Grill does a good job with hamburgers, cheeseburgers, California burgers, Hawaiian burgers, . . . . And on and on. Waitstaff can be curt but in four times here this spring and summer never unfriendly. Outdoor patio or inside with maritime theme. Order a "large" beer .... More

We stopped in the Anchor Bar on our way through Superior heading to interior Minnesota, as I'm sure many do. We had heard from friends and acquaintances that their burgers are a must-try. It is a bar with a bar atmosphere, but definitely okay for families during lunchtime. There are maritime artifacts all over the walls and ceiling, nice to... More

I don't know we're you can find a better burger. Yeah the service there's isn't the greatest at times, but they aren't rude! Just usually busy! When it comes down to it, they have the best burgers, and it's so cheaply priced! Go to a chain restaurant if you want the great service!
