It's oyster time and if you're looking for some great oysters, then this is the restaurant for you. These oysters hit all the right notes no matter how you like them done. Fried, on the half shell, steamed...this restaurant does it all and does it all perfectly to boot. Their Rockefeller and Oyster stew is simply out of this world.... More

Our group of 8 demanding women was completely happy with yesterday's extravaganza meal, trying every oyster on the menu (really depends on your personal taste on how you like oysters (sweet, briny, cooked), Smoked Trout Salad and of course, french fries and onion rings. Nice selection of wines and beers. Service was friendly and was able to handle the multiple... More

We weren't going there with high expectations so we weren't overly disappointed. The crab dip was fine but the bread bowl it came in was recently thawed and had hard, freezer burned spots. Our entrees were ok - pasta with shrimp & crab and crab cakes. The servers were all very nice. If we return, we'd probably sit at the... More

We stayed at a local B&B and liked the look of The Anvil Restaurant. I am a keen beer drinker so I was delighted by the variety of local beers on offer from West Virginia, Virginia, Maryland, etc. I ordered one of the 'specials' but was very disappointed with it. The steak was extremely fatty and the plate was cold... More

We eaten at the Anvil a few times and it never disappoints! We had our rehearsal dinner at the Anvil and the staff was very accommodating. Our guests loved the food - choice of steak, chicken, or crab balls. Everything tasted good!

At Christmas they have the restaurant decorated beautifully with trees and hanging greens. The food is top drawer and prices are good.

My husband and I dropped in for a late lunch at the recommendation of our motel desk clerk. We ordered burgers and shared an order of fries. The burgers took about 20 minutes to arrive at our table, but that was fine with us, because we knew they'd been prepared from scratch. Those burgers were some of the best we've... More
