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. It was busy, so we sat at the bar. Quick service from a great lady named Bean, who has been there for 40 years. Our burgers... More

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...

Please. Do not come here if you are an arrogant foodie. Come here if you love to watch real cooks and servers work hard. One of our favorite places to go since 1999.

This is a great place to stop for the best burger in Superior. Great possibility to find something new with choices like the cashew burger and the olive and cream cheese burger. Both great options as well as the rest of the menu! Hand cut fries compliment the meal! And before you go, grab a shot for dessert; you can't... More

Great burger. Cold beer. Friendly efficient service. What more can you ask? They seem to have the rep that their wait staff is surly but nothing could be further from the truth.
