A relative recommended this place and it did not disappoint. The burgers and fries are great. Our group of 10 ordered a pretty wide range of burgers and everyone was happy with what they got. This is a go to place for a cheap good burger and a beer in Superior.

Another couple went with us to try out the bar that so many people rave about. The atmosphere is fantastic and the only reason my rating is as high as it is. The service is mediocre at best...good luck getting a drink refill. We each ordered a different type of burger so we could try several. The burgers were so... More

While visiting the North Shore, we just had to stop here after hearing so much about it. It was busy, but lucky for us, a table had just left so there was room for us. We all ordered different kinds of burgers so we could share. The cream cheese olive burger was good, but could have used less cream cheese... More

I know the Anchor has received rave reviews for their burgers, and appeared on Diners & Dives. And the burgers are great. They aren't the "OMG, this is the best burger EVER!" but they are very tasty. Service was decent and friendly. The atmosphere is definitely one of a complete dive. If I visit the area again, I'd consider stopping... More

Good prices, unique burgers, service wasnt all that. Server can't handle more than 5 tables before snapping about a simple order. Waited 30 minutes before getting a refill on a beer.

As you can imagine, the theme of many locations near Lake Superior have to do with the lake and the ships that travel on it. Anchor Bar and Grill takes this to a whole new level. From news articles to fun facts to items featured in 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, this gem is truly unique and worth a peek.... More

We ate here twice because it was good and so inexpensive. I loved the Bloody Mary. It was fantastic. The house cut fries are very good too.

Wide variety of burger toppings and not much else on the lunch menu beyond burgers. With burgers like these, nothing else is needed. Very speedy service and really personable staff. The Eclectic decorations were outstanding. Would definitely come back.
