The Anchor Bar Buffalo is renowned on account of its world-famous chicken wings. An unusual claim to fame perhaps, but a worthy one nonetheless; this signature dish has been sampled by guests from all over the world.
According to legend, Anchor Bar was just another traditional NY bar until one day an event happened that was to shape its legacy. Dominic Bellissimo was tending the bar when a few of his friends entered. The bartender asked his mother to prepare some food for them. The meal she created gave birth to the Anchor Bar's signature dish.
It may only be a humble chicken wing, but its popularity cannot be underestimated. Anchor Bar is a popular hangout with locals, tourists and even the odd celebrity who's been passing through Buffalo. Previous guests have included Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, John Candy, Bob Seger, Dick Gerhart and Fred Smerlas.
Inside the Anchor Bar, the atmosphere is cozy and inviting, with a laidback jazz vibe. The walls are adorned with the many awards that have been bestowed upon the bar over the years.
Guests of Millennium Hotel Buffalo will find Anchor Bar located on Main Street, just a short distance from the hotel.
