So many really great beers on draught to try. Service is good. But food is just okay. And I had high hopes after looking at the menu and great selections. Not as much care into cooking as there is into beer selections. Don't go for the food as your main aim, and you'll be fine.

I eat at the anchor 5\6 times a year. The burgers that I have tried have all been great. I usually go with a group of 10-15 and they are always glad to make room and serve us rapidly. Definitely a great stop for an awesome lunch

I came to The Anchor with a large group (10+) on a weeknight for drinks and food. The Parmesan fries are absolutely delicious! They have a great selection of drinks, even for people like me who don't like the taste of beer. Prices are also great for graduate student budgets. We did wait a while for service, but with good...

Everyone always seems to have a pretty decent time at the anchor. The food is always pretty good and the staff are always fairly helpful. I would recommend this to people who want to go and share a good time with business people or friends. My only problem with this place is that it tends to be kind of loud.... More

It gets crowded at lunch but the food is good. Try the fried okra and fried chicken they are very good. Parking is very limited and tight so get there early or late lunch.

We have enjoyed the Anchor in the past, particularly their Bloody Mary's and burgers. However, when we went to lunch here the other day we had the worst tasting burgers imaginable. After just one bite both me and my lunch partner couldn't eat anything else, for the rest of the day. Something was def wrong with the meat. The server... More

The Anchor is great when you just need some fried jalapeños, fried pickles, or any other bar food. The fried bottle caps which are sliced red and green jalapeños that are served with ranch are really good. Love the Dos Tacos which are 2 fried tacos with fresh salsa. Haven't had anything here that hasn't been good.

Thank khth
