Above average

The beer selection was good, and the planked salmon was above average. The one thing we had that could use some improvement was the chicken wings. The breading was too thick , so they got soggy with the buffalo sauce.

First, we went to the Canal House, sat down and our waitress came and told us that they were out of almost half of their menu, which isn't that much to begin with. We were disappointed. Then, we left and went to The Anvil. We were greeted immediately and seated very fast. Our waitress, Amanda, was very prompt and got... More

We enjoyed our meal but the highlight of our evening was Amanda our server. She is a most engaging and friendly person. She enjoys her job and is attentive in serving her guests. We enjoyed our steaks and a fish from the specials menu.

They have a great menu to select from. The decor is welcoming and you feel very comfortable. Staff is very attentive, so you never need to wait for a refill on your drinks.

This was a surprise to find in Harpers Ferry but you can get some interesting quasi-gourmet meals in a very pleasant quiet restaurant. The food was good but somewhat pricey. I would like them to have displayed a menu outside so I knew that beforehand. If they had, I would have gone elsewhere simply because I don't like spending $25... More

My husband ordered the crab cake which was terrible. It was right out of a box and mostly filler. Crab salad was just okay. The table was sticky. Pricey and not worth the $$$

I went here for supper. I had a local beer that was nice and cold. Soup with crab was tasty, salad was ok (not a big fan of salad), rib eye was cooked perfect and was very good. Just enough fat to tenderize and flavor. I was seated promptly. Would recommend!
