Waitress was friendly. Menu has a lot of choices. Reasonably priced. We chose the taco salad and chicken quesadilla both were very satisfying. We should have shared an item because both were large for us. This is a must stop if you are in the area. It was clean and food arrived quickly and hot. Lots of options that would... More

The food is really good, especially the breakfast, it's the best!! They have a bar in the back of the restaurant too, with darts & a pool table. Love the homestyle feel this restaurant has!

We had not eaten at the Anchor Grill for awhile so we decided to give it a try. The atmosphere is small town cafe. Our waitress was very friendly and efficient. I had the hot hamburger with mashed potatoes and gravy. Definitely comfort food! Their menu is very traditional but did include wraps and Mexican dishes too. We will be... More

Not many choices in Chamberlain but was intrigued by the name and rating. This is very much a home style cooking. We went with a group of 10 hunters and when into the big room just in front of the Ship Wreck bar. The stocked the salad bar was a really nice change of pace. Fresh crisp salads and toppings....

Staying in Chamberlin for the night and arrived late. Had been running on Mountain time all day and the change set us forward an hour for dinner. We arrived a half hour before closing and we were treated with amazing service and great food. Steak was cooked perfect. Nice home cooking taste.

When we travel, we try to avoid chain restaurants as much as possible and live by winner's reviews. TA had good ratings and we agree the food was good. I had the pretzel roll burger with chipotles mayo and bacon.It was deli ious, if sloppy to eat. The fries that came with it were also very good. My husband ordered... More

We had breakfast and the food was very good. Coffee a little weak. Service by gum chewer. The loud motor noise of one of their coolers was annoying which really resulted in the lower score. On a strange note the women's toilet was up on a pedestal 😂.
