“Unique wings, beer, patio, what more could you want....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2011

As for atmosphere, the bar area is small and can get crowded but they have a new (2010 maybe?) outdoor patio in the back area that is quite spacious and provides a nice vantage point to the creek far below. The front, smaller patio also provides additional seating if you like to watch the locals drive by.

For a relatively small place the selection of beers on tap is fantastic. Some old favorites but also a healthy selection (a dozen maybe) smaller craft beers. And if it's not too busy, the bartenders are good about offering samplers of beers before you invest in a full pint.

As for the famous wings, I noticed a complaint about the dry wings but that is the intended style. I wouldn't consider them dry meaning overcooked, but dry meaning not made with a liquid sauce. Those who like that style of wing will really love these wings. Other items on the menu are exactly what you'd expect from a bar - good portions, reasonable price, average-to-good tasting. But the wings are why people come back.

The one downside is that the wait service is usually not very fast. I've been forgotten a time or two when sitting on the patio and I've had to walk back into the bar to get a refresher on drinks. Don't get me wrong, the staff is always nice, just sometime there doesn't seem to be enough of them.

The locals have been going here for years for a reason. If you want to try a different take on the chicken wing, sample a new craft beer you may never have had before or just enjoy a summer evening on a nice patio, this is the place for you.

“best in buffalo hands down”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2011

the wings are dry becuase they are supposed to be. They cook, sauce, then grill the wings to dry the sauce on. I've lived in blo for 29 years and have had wings at all the famous spots. The anchor bar can even be compared to Mammosers or the bar bill in EA. If you like wings order you have to try these. remember they are not covered in sauce becuase they arent supposed to be! i bet you'll like these better anyway. Try med/bbq and i bet you'll not be dissapointed. the place is small and noisy and it usually takes a while to get your food but they are worth it.

“Good but Dry”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2008

Mammoser's Tavern has a reputation for some of the very best wings in the region, which I have heard from more than one person from outside of Hamburg. After 12 years living in Hamburg, we went to Mammoser's Tavern for the first time with another couple from Cheektowaga who recommended the restaurant to us. The wait was long for a table, but it was a Saturday night and the place was jammin'. The bar area was quite narrow and crammed with people. Very loud, but hey, it's a bar. There were a couple of nice draft beer choices for us. The dining room was fairly small, service was pretty good. The wings were good, but strangely dry. Not a lot of sauce was on them and we had three types of wings. Yet, they were still good. The real complaint was very small sides of blue cheese dressing - 3 little tubs for 60 wings. Once the blue cheese ran out, we lost our enthusiasm for finishing the mounds of wings before us. We boxed them and took them home for the next day.
