Four of us had lunch there 7/6. First let me say that I find it a complete turnoff when you walk in the door and are ignored as staff walks past. They need to address the issue of how to handle customers; the present staff...More

We are local and go here often. They are a solid joint with great food and good service. Top suggestions: fried okra, blackberry mule, haystack, fat kid or Mac Attack. Great beer menu and open late.

We stopped for dinner on our way to South Dakota. The burgers were very good and quite large. The homemade chips were top notch. Great atmosphere. I did not have a drink but it looked like a fun place to meet friends.

I wanted to sample a local beer and was recommended to The Anchor. Menu was extensive, to suit all tastes. I took an excellent, Wichita brewed Nitro Stout.

My husband and I just discovered The Anchor a couple of months ago, and have ate here several times since! We have yet to be disappointed. Our servers have always been friendly, and service has been quick. We've tried several different menu items, and all...More
