Harpers Ferry needs a better selection of nice places to eat with a feeling of history. The Anvil has been around since 1985 and it shows- the place seems to want to be a high scale place but staff don't dress the role.

The food was very good and good portions. Staff were friendly and on top of things. Restaurant was clean but a little pricey.

My husband and I stop for dinner and it was a great meal. Prices are reasonable and the staff is very nice. Our waiter had to wait on a large group and the other wait staff came over and made sure that we were find and needed anything else. I would go eat here again.

I will never recommend Anvil. totally bad experience with server, the limited menu, food quality and way over prices. Charles Town Races, Their Buffett is the place to go. My feelings is that Anvil is a tourist trap. NO PRICES LISTED ON MENUE.

The atmosphere here was great with something for everyone! The pub has a nice quaint feel to it and the dining room is great for a more formal dining experience. It was "date night" for the hubby and I, so we chose the dining room. Although there were several other families/ couples dining, the room was large enough that it... More

This was my second time going to The Anvil and i have yet to be disappointed. Melissa provided us with the type of service you'd expect. Our food didnt take long at all, which surprised us since we ordered the oysters rockefeller. Over all we will definitely be back.
