Stopped in with 4 of my friends to watch the championship NFL football game. Had a blast. The Anchor Bar had more TVs in there then I could count. Our group loved that they even played the game overhead so we could hear play by play.

While watching the game we enjoyed their garbage can nachos. They were finger licking good! We also shared the crispy Brussels which were the best I have ever had.

They had a great selection of beers on draft along with reasonable prices for pitchers of beer to share. Our server was very attentive and had a bubbly personality. Can’t wait to go back for Super Bowl Sunday!

Stopped in the Anchor Bar before the Red Wings game with a group of my friends. The staff was very attentive. The server mentioned to try the wings because of the 7 new sauces they offer. The Faygo BBQ Rock & Rye was my FAVORITE. Before we left we seen they had games in the front. So we decided how fun would it be to play a quick game of Jenga like the good old days. Perfect place to bring friends and family. Can’t wait to go back!

Visited Anchor Bar while I was in Detroit this past weekend. Wow, what a fun place. Popped in for a quick bite with friends and ended up staying for hours. Played games and spun the wheel of fun, got a discount on my food! Not your average bar in Detroit. Food is creative and upscale but still comfort food.

Great, newly remodeled “hole in the wall”. Excellent burgers and friendly service! Makeda was fantastic!! Restaurant is clean and right on the “People Mover” track (Fort-Cass Station).
