The Anchor is a popular bar in Superior known for good food. The interior has many seagoing artifacts. They also have a patio for the summer months. The food is very good and is fairly inexpensive when compared to other restaurants in the twin port area. Very tasty and very short wait time when I was there.

If you are looking for a "local" burger place, this is it. When in a new city we prefer to take in the "local" fare/atmosphere versus the chain restaurants and this is exactly that. Reasonable prices for basic burgers with fun toppings (cream cheese/Olive, bacon and barbeque, etc.). Choice of chips or homemade fries (for an up-charge). Seems to be... More

This has been our "go to" bar for what were the best burgers in Wisconsin. Unfortunately, something has changed. The first time this summer we thought maybe it was a different cook, but the 2nd time we realized that it was the meat. Our last two visits the burgers have been cooked dry. The fries are still delicious, but something... More

Ok, the wait sucks. BUT, you can eat cheaper here than McDonald's!! Two burgers and 4 beers was $20 + tip!!!! The burgers truly live up to their hype!

If you want a solid burger and beer joint- no frills- this is the place to be! The price is right and the food is a great value.

My husband and I were in Duluth with some friends for he Tall Ship Festival and we decided to make our way over the border to check this place out as we had heard so much about it. It's a small place and seems to be always hopping. When we arrived we didn't know if we should seat ourselves or... More

When we go to Duluth, we make a special trip to the Anchor. They have fresh cut french fires and their burgers (they have a ton of options for burgers) are the best. The locals love this place. The decorations are a mix or items and I always find something new when we visit.

If you looked up the definition of a dive bar a picture of this would probably show up. The menu has about 10 burgers with either fries or chips. All the burgers were spot on, with the only exception tat 1 had too much blue cheese on it. The fries were nothing special and the chips were right out of... More

My wife and I stopped by on a Sunday afternoon to try one of their famous burgers. The place is a real dive inside, but the burgers are great. They don't take credit cards but the prices are really cheap. I had a 2/3 lb anchor burger, fries and a large(34 oz) beer. My wife had a reuben and 2... More
