Always looking to try something different. Some "typical" bar food but some a little different. I had the reuben. Delicious. Great service as well. Highly recommend.

We had a group of almost 20 ... about six adults and fourteen teenagers (skating team). Everyone found something they liked and the Anchor was super accommodating. I had a delicious burger and nice dark beer...their beer menu is large!. I do recommend!

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts. We're glad you liked the Reuben; it's one of our favorites! We brine the corned beef in-house, at our butcher shop next door. We hope to see you back in Wichita again soon!

Great bar with bar type food available. We dinned I’m on a Monday night and the restaurant area was quite full. A well known Wichita establishment - would recommend!

At the recommendation of locals I tried this great little pub. Highly recommend you try it too! I enjoyed one of the multitude of delectable brews and a delicious sandwich! Loads of choices. Give it a shot.

Fun place in Old Town. We went for brunch on a Sunday, and unlike most places downtown it was actually open. I LOVE biscuits and gravy , and their Chicken Debris, where they add spicy chicken tenders, made it one of the best I’ve ever...More
