This place is a bit of a local legend. First thing you notice when you walk in is all the old nautical gear hanging on the walls and ceiling. It gives the place a really charming antique feeling, especially if you're lucky enough to get the enclosed corner table. One thing to be aware of is that the service is... More

We stopped here based on what we saw at Trip Advisor and weren't disappointed. We've been here several times now and the burgers were awesome and the prices are amazing compared to other area restaurants.

If you want homemade fries cut fresh and an awesome burger don't miss this place. The interior is set with a nautical them. Tho small inside but well worth the experience. Always a wait to get in especially around lunch time. Great Prices.

Tried to stop here a few years ago and there was a line out the door and down the block! Finally tried their burgers and I have to say they are outstanding. Everything a burger should be! I had the Reuben Burger with sauerkraut, Swiss and thousand island and it was delicious. I would most definitely eat here again and... More

Stopped here after a great day of snowshoeing! Our son suggested it. Upon entering, it was apparent I was going to like it. Dark, old, laid back. It smelled like searing beef and fries.

We love the Anchor Bar and Grill! We eat there everytime we go to Superior. There burgers are the best and their pitcher of beer is deliciously cold!!! The best "bang for the buck" as my husband would put it. You gotta eat there!!!

Interesting atmosphere, good bar food... iconic location... This is not for an upscale, rich, country-club, type person... This is a bar with good food, great service, and a great redneck atmosphere...
