“Outstanding!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2015 NEW

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 anything en route to his table.
The salad was served on a chilled plate with the freshest greens,etc. My entree was perfection. The Cedar Plank Salmon had an incredible seared exterior while perfectly cooked interior accompanied with a delicious Bourbon sauce. The green beans were steamed al dente and finished with garlic and seasonings.
My dining experience was topped off when Chef Richard came out after I questioned my server to ask him how an at-home cook could replicate the salmon dish. He explained not only the how-to's of the salmon but also the sauce and green beans. Kudos to a young, professional who happily shared his expertise.
Definitely make this a stop in your travels to Harper's Ferry whether it be for fine dining or a burger and beer.

“Middle of the road ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2015

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. Prices are high for the area -


The food was GREAT and was spot on for flavor. The chef seems to be the only professional working at this establishment.

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.
