Eleven of us were there for Easter Sunday dinner. The portions were very generous and the service was very good. All the orders came out together. My choice was very good and tasty. Most of the diners enjoyed their orders, my wife, not so much. She had the rainbow trout and said it had too much oil on it. We... More

The food here is consistently good with a wide variety to choose from. If you catch a night with live music... even better. Folks are friendly and it has a local vibe. Can't go wrong here.

We ate here on the recommendation of the manager of our motel. We both ordered specials. We started with soups, vegetable corn chowder for me and crab soup for my brother. The seasoning really shined through. For the entree I had the steak au poivre, and my brother had the shrimp and scallops. The chef definitely has it going on.... More

one of the best restaurants in jefferson County. Crab dishes are a specialty there. They vary their menu ; have outdoor setaing in warmer weather and it's a cozy but upscale place.

We hadn't been there for about 20 years, but fortunately it hasn't changed. A local institution with great food. We were there during oyster fest and they had a menu with a variety of oyster specials. The French onion soup is the perfect version of the classic. The service is friendly, if not particularly brisk, so relax, have a drink... More

The Anvil Restaurant has been in business for 31 yrs. With the same owners. A busy little restaurant for off season in Harper's Ferry, but a great little stop on the way through town. The French onion soup and crab balls were delicious little snack. I would definitely stop here when visiting
