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

Dined at The Anvil Restaurant in Harpers Ferry last week. In a lovely old building near the National Historic Park. The interior is very nice, atmosphere was suitably old. Service was impeccable, albeit on a quiet evening. The food didn't quite live up to the ambiance of the place. My friend enjoyed her meal (I believe it was a burger),... More

I gave it 3 stars because I liked the decor and ambiance of the pub and restaurant, and it was reasonably priced. This is a good place to have a drink while watching a game, but I was disappointed with my meal.

We just got back home from the Anvil. We were pretty excited about dinner because it appears to be quite popular. We were quickly seated, and liked the atmosphere. Our waitress was friendly, and told us the specials were the prime rib, which she said they were famous for, and red snapper over spinach and mushrooms. I mulled over the... More

We went out for a Saturday night meal and wanted to try the Anvil for the first time. The decor and the ambiance is very nice and the service was excellent. The food was ok, it wasnt bad, it was just not memorable. I had the prime rib and my husband had the crab cakes. Two iconic dishes you find... More
