I couldn’t eat all of my food. The food had a lot of flavor and was of good quality. Within walking distance from historic area but up a hill. A couple of tables outside and live music sometimes.

We discovered The Anvil as we strolled down a pretty residential section of Washington Street. The appealing exterior of the restaurant fit right in. The AAA logo proudly displayed also caught our eye. We returned the following evening. The restaurant consists of a few rooms,...More

It will be a long walk and uphill. I believe it is safe but not sure about streetlights. I am sure if you call the restaurant they can give you more info.
