Fitger’s Brewhouse Brewery and Grille ~ Review

After a long ass day in Duluth hubby and I decided to stop someplace new (new to us) and grab a bite to eat.  So, since we were driving by Fitger’s we thought we would give the Brewhouse Brewery and Grille a try.   We were seated right away in the back part of the eatery and attended to very quickly.  Our waitress Sarah was very friendly and took very good care of us.

Tony and I both ordered a cup of soup & a cobb salad.  Yeah, not very exciting but that was just what we were in the mood for.  Well the salads were a nice size and came with warm pita bread.  Yum!    The soup must have been a kitchen made soup as it had fresh ingredients in it and was amazing!  I can’t remember the name but it was like a chicken noodle but with little dumpling things instead of noodles.  I would have to say it was one of the best soups I have had in a restaurant in a long time.   The salad was a typical cobb salad but non the less it was very fresh, and just perfect!

Our meal was relaxing and enjoyable and the Brewhouse is very unique.  I liked being able to see into the Brewery and just look over all the neat stuff all around us.

After our meal we ordered a big chocolate cookie to share.  It was huge!!   Almost like 4 cookies in one.  It came warm, on a warm plate.  Made me feel like a little kid at Grandma’s house getting the cookies right out of the oven.

I would have to say we will for sure be back for dinner again as our visit was a pleasant one.  Thanks to Sarah, and the rest of the staff for a great meal.

Anchor Bar ~ Review ~ Superior, Wisconsin

If you live in Minnesota or Wisconsin you have most likely heard about The Anchor Bar.  They were even on a big food show pinpointed as a great “burger” joint to hit.

Well.. they do have kick ass burgers!!!   Our first time for eating there was early this year with a couple friends of ours.  We had good service, and the burgers were to die for!!   The fries on the other hand were a bit greasy and under cooked.  But..  nothing could have made that burger not a huge hit!!  I even ate a whole 1# burger!!

So hubby and I are on the Harley yesterday and in Superior, Wi. and decide to stop there for lunch.  Walk in, place is fairly dead…grab a table.  Ok.. first we had to decide which table we wanted to sit at because ALL of them were dirty!!   Ick!!   Not a single empty table was cleaned off.  (strike one).    We have a seat and wait and wait and wait!   Finally a waiter comes by and takes our drink order.  Then we wait and wait and wait.  For a pop and a water!!  And there were only like 6 other customers in the place.  (strike 2)

Finally the waiter brings our drinks and takes our food order.   Food comes quite fast but our waiter doesn’t bring it.. another waitress does.  Not a big deal..but what happened to our waiter. ?? Hmmm..    We of course dig in.  Burgers are good, fries again are way to greasy and underdone.   Not sure if the grease is old or what..but they are not the best.   So..  lalalalalalala…  where is our waiter?   Nobody cares if we need anything else or if our food is ok?   Lalalalalalalala…. where is our check?   Hmmm… is our meal free?  (strike 3)

So, I have to use the little girls room so hubby belly’s up to the bar to pay since nobody will bring our check to us.   Hubby pays, and tips accordingly.    So, even though the burgers were good I know there are many many other burger joints in our area we can eat at… because we will NEVER eat at The Anchor Bar again!!

3 Strikes and you are OUT!!
