My wife and I have been to this place many times. How I found it is a story in itself. A friend from my high school in Parker AZ. who lives in Main had me meet him and his wife there for lunch. We found the hamburgers to be excellent. The fries were made from fresh potatoes and were just... More

This is the go to place of Superior. Can't say you have been to Superior if you have not stopped in the Anchor Bar. THE BURGERS!! THE FRIES! hey, forget the diet, just really enjoy. Certainly not fancy but where all the locals 'in the know' go.

If you're into neighborhood bars with a ton of history and character try this one. They have good food priced for budgets and the walls are covered in history. Somewhat dim inside but my kind of place.

Was recommended to me by somebody at Enterprise so I decided to check it out. I was told all they had was burgers and fries. Sounded good! The place is a dive bar, but I don't mean that negatively. The décor was definitely local and water and fish related. No clear space on the walls or ceiling at all. Sat... More

The Anchor Bar Gang(sters) aka the elite Class of '61, met again for the best burgers and fries in the area. We were in town for a class reunion and this is a must stop. Nothing has changed. Great atmosphere and food. The AC was cranked, so a bit chilly by our table. We will be back!

We made a quick stop here for lunch on a recent visit to Duluth, and it was great. Seemed to take a bit long for our food to show up, but the place had a decent crowd. Still would have thought that with the limited menu things would crank out a bit quicker.

We stopped by for a quick burger and fries. Good service, great burger and fries. A tall cold PBR to top it off. We had a table by the kitchen, their grille cook is quite an artist on the flat top!

Amazing burgers and cool atmosphere. They only serve burgers and fries. Fries are homemade. The nautical stuff was cool to look at. Service was great. We thought it was okay for kids during the lunch hour. Not sure about nighttime. Very reasonably priced. They do not take credit cards so bring your cash!

We ate at the Anchor to try out the burgers. It got positive reviews and was highly recommended. It got a 4.5 star average on TA and received one of the best in all of Superior, so I expected something decent, but the cleanliness was below-average. I'll describe below: We arrived in the early afternoon on a Saturday for lunch.... More

Gotta love the dump! FANTASTIC greasy burgers! Great price! Unique atmosphere. Not ok for kids, you're in a seemingly rough and tumble bar. Super fun.
