My Husband and I attended the local Elgin Symphony Tonight and saw the Anvil Club's ad in the program saying " bring in your ticket stub afterwards for a free Brandy Ice in the Bar".. I had always wondered about this place since it's Members Only, so I dragged him to check it out; thinking that we would get some... More

Dear Shelley S, On behalf the Anvil Club, I do want to reach out and say how disappointed I am that you and your husband had this kind of experience. It is not at all typical of the hospitality our guests and members have come to expect. In talking to the staff involved, the ESO, and others, I would say... More

The iconic old façade always hinted at a hidden treasure. The façade, unfortunately, is now gone, but the trade-off is attractive interior remodeling and a choice of rooms with varying degrees of formality (i.e. casual attire or coat and tie). We are fairly new members, and enjoy the rooms with quiet elegance and an atmosphere conducive to good conversation -... More

i was invited here by my boss. They have remodeled and it looks really nice. And, now men don't have to wear Jackets, just in the stuffy room. I was disappointed that they only had a buffet for lunch, but the food was pretty good. They had someone serving prime rib, ham and lamb. The prime rib was outstanding, but... More

My girlfriend was a member and quit going as the place needed a face lift and the menu never changed. We returned on a guess pass to see the place got a face lift. First I revived the wrong beer, drank it anyway. Ordered shrimp cocktails which were very good. But no plates or silver ware ??? We ordered dinner... More

Was invited to rejoin the Anvil Club and went there several times in the last month. They spent a lot of money renovating it and updating the bathrooms as well as the various rooms throughout the restaurant. This place is REAL CLASSY now. This is a must-go-see place now. It was so good, we joined as members and have gone... More

Part of our Spring Tour was a stop at the Anvil Club for a Sunday Champagne Brunch. Everything was excellent from the bright room to the presentation of all the food and desserts. Service was excellent and everyone had more than enough to eat. They opened up special for us (usually they are not open for Sunday Brunch/lunch). If you... More

This private club is hidden behind plain jane doors which I have been driving by for years. I was invited by my son who is a member I was wowed by how intimate and charming the setting was. Food is exceptional quality.

It's been a while since I've last dined here (it was exclusive and you had to be invited by an existing member!) the food was top notch and the service was 5 star!
