Anchored by Great, Affordable Entrées
The bowl of red snapper soup served with a small carafe of sherry is only one sign that The Anchorage (4700 N. Port Washington Road) isn’t merely a hotel restaurant, despite its location off the lobby of the Hilton. Commanding a panoramic view of the Milwaukee River and a split-level bar and dining room, The Anchorage offers an affordable menu with many gourmet touches amidst the burgers, Reubens and salads. The daily specials are visually elegant and exquisitely prepared, with a focus on seafood appropriate to its name but representing all food groups. In warm weather the riverside patio is one of Milwaukee’s great outdoor hideaways. The Anchorage serves breakfast, lunch and dinner.
