Not really what we were wanting

We stopped here after a week at the North Carolina beach. We really wanted something other than seafood , and we were looking for something other than sandwiches. My wife settled on seafood because non of the other dishes grabbed her attention. I had some very good onion soup, and a not so... read more

The food was EXCELLENT. But it was a little pricey. I had lump crab over salad. My husband had a chicken sandwich. We both had the lump crab soup, which was like a minestrone with crab in it. Very tasty. My husband said the chicken sandwich was the best he ever had. (his words!) My salad was OK. We drank... More

Had a very nice lunch there with my grandson. It was quiet; maybe 6 other eaters. Food was really good. I had the chili-chicken special with fries and grandson had a Rueben sandwich. We both enjoyed our meal. I had 2 draft beers and he had 2 ginger ales. Bill was less than $30 - good value.

On a weekend getaway, we stopped at the Anvil for what we knew would be a decent meal, but it far exceeded our expectations. Amanda was our server and she made us feel like long lost friends, so warm and friendly. The special that evening was the filet mignon with mushrooms, and it was melt-in-your-mouth delectable. It was the perfect... More

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
