We ate here twice because it was good and so inexpensive. I loved the Bloody Mary. It was fantastic. The house cut fries are very good too.

Wide variety of burger toppings and not much else on the lunch menu beyond burgers. With burgers like these, nothing else is needed. Very speedy service and really personable staff. The Eclectic decorations were outstanding. Would definitely come back.

We're part of 3 couples who visit Duluth in October of each year for the leaves. The one stop we make each and every year is the Anchor Bar. It's noisy and crowded with a slightly rowdy atmosphere. One wag once described the place as a bar aspiring to become a dive. That may be true, but the burgers are... More

Great food at a great price. I would highly recommend. Best burger I've ever had. We stopped there on a trip to check out the North Shore fall colors well worth it.

Great dive bar that you must visit if you live in or visit Duluth. It's slowly being over run by college aged kids though

Outstanding burgers. I can feel my arteries narrowing just thinking about sinking my teeth into one of them. Their fries are awesome as well. If you're across the border in Duluth, it's worth the 10 minute drive for some "local culture" at this nautical-themed bar that looks like it has been there forever.

I told my wife about this place I watched on Diners Drive-Ins & Dives and how cheap the burgers were. It was amazing how great the burgers were and the selection! I had the olive burger and my wife had the Hawaiian burger. I also had a tall beer and our total was $16! Amazing. The place has very interesting... More

The atmosphere was great and the food was very good. I would recommend that people try it. It looks like dive but once you get in and order you'll be surprised. I will go again for sure. The price was right too!

Don't let the looks of this place scare you away. Be prepared, this place is not fancy. The inside is dark and old. Great old fashioned burgers. Real hamburger on a nice bun. The fries are fresh cut and you should order them. Good selection of burgers like the olive cream cheese burger which was excellent. The "Whaler" is a... More

We stopped for dinner on our way to Duluth for the weekend. It is a very small place with a great atmosphere. The burgers were great & the service was prompt.
