Nice find in a small town

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... read 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!

Prime rib was excellent. Also had a crab cake which I thought was sub par. Salad was excellent and we had a crab dip app. Which was good. The drinks were good too. It was not busy the night we were there. The service was OK. Not as good as one would hope for the price of the food. All... More

Crab dip appetizer was awesome, and there was lots of it! My husband had flank steak, which was very good, and I had Mahi Mahi, which was excellent. Both dinners came with cheesy scalloped potatoes which were yummy

I was not impressed with the decor, it was dirty, the table was sticky, it smelled like grease, the food was horrible, the clams tasted old. My granddaughter wouldn't even eat her dinner and she's not a picky eater. Disappointed doesn't even describe my experience.

We strive to please every customer and welcome comments to help us improve. However, we DON'T sell CLAMS and have not had them as a special for over two years and they have NEVER been a menu item in 30 years! It is difficult to believe that a complaint or concern about CLAMS could have gone without notice since we... More

Restaurant was very nice. We had a very good dinner after a long day of biking the C & O canal. Salmon was excellent, good selection of beers. Filet could of had a little more taste, but it was tender.

I recently had the pleasure of stopping at The Anvil after an area House & Garden Tour. I had been here many years ago & had a good experience with an excellent meal, so I hoped it would still meet my high expectations. Melissa, my server, was very attentive and friendly, as was her coworker who ask if I needed... More
