This is a hotel restaurant with good to great service. Offerings were so-so, but breakfast was complete. Service was exceptionally friendly and a surprising international clientele were there while I ate at the restaurant.

Maybe it was just me, but I enjoyed the older rustic wood look of the old Anchorage, but the food was still decent and enjoyable. The prices are fine and anything I've had here was good and tasty with nice portions too. Service is usually...More

Great meal. Good security. Easy access and adequate parking lot. Hotel is nice with some rooms viewing the river behind the facility. This is a northeast Milwaukee area with Bayshore mall but a mere 3 miles to the north.

This restaurant is attached to the Holiday Inn Milwaukee River. It looks as if it has been recently remodeled. It looks nice. It over looks the Milwaukee river. To be honest, in the middle of April. The view of the river looked a little rough....More

We'd eaten at the Anchorage while it was part of the River Hilton many times and the food, service and atmosphere was all first class. Decided to try the 'new' Anchorage last night. What a disappointment. There no longer IS atmosphere there. Felt like we...More

My wife and I spent two night at the Holiday Inn Riverfront and decided that after seeing The Anchorage we didn't have to go out for dinner and drinks. Great staff food and the prices are reasonable. Worth staying in!
