There are 3 restaurants in town. We had pizza the other night we were there and couldn't find the third restaurant. The food was good and fresh. My husband had the scallops dish and said it was excellent. The wait staff was friendly. It was quiet and fairly empty since it was off season. I... read more

I enjoy coming to The Anvil and almost always leave feeling pleased. Tonight was very busy, so I knew I would have to wait a little bit longer then usual to get my drinks from the bar. I asked my waitress (I think her name was Ashley?) to bring me another draft beer. As I was waiting for my drink... More

We decided to have our wedding at The Anvil since all of the elders in our family go there each and EVERY New Years Day to enjoy the fine food and delightful atmosphere that the staff provides. Our waitress Cristina took excellent care of all (21) of us. It was the most perfect wedding we could have wished for, also... More

If the other restaurants in the area are full this is an acceptable fall back, not my first choice. Menu is nice but not all the dishes are prepared to the best standard, sometimes overcooked and often the presentation is lacking. Crabcakes are 3 star, not the worse or the best I have had (I grew up on the Chesapeake... More

My family couldn't agree on what to eat while staying in HF then we found The Anvil. A nicely decorated, small cozy, place just down the road from our B&B. The six of us had the food we selected served perfectly to our liking, from a large salad to hamburger, to fish and even crab cakes. All were delicious. Two... More

The food is pricey and mediocre, but the worst is how nasty the bartender is towards her employee's. Just mean and rude.

The food is lame despite the moderately high prices. Our waiter seemed lost and unsure of himself. You have other alternatives in Harper's Ferry and surrounding towns. Please save yourself the aggravation and money and go somewhere else.
