Had a very nice lunch there with my grandson. It was quiet; maybe 6 other eaters. Food was really good. I had the chili-chicken special with fries and grandson had a Rueben sandwich. We both enjoyed our meal. I had 2 draft beers and he had 2 ginger ales. Bill was less than $30 - good value.

Amanda was our server and she made us feel like long lost friends, so warm and friendly. The special that evening was the filet mignon with mushrooms, and it was melt-in-your-mouth delectable. It was the perfect... More

The beer selection was good, and the planked salmon was above average. The one thing we had that could use some improvement was the chicken wings. The breading was too thick , so they got soggy with the buffalo sauce.

First, we went to the Canal House, sat down and our waitress came and told us that they were out of almost half of their menu, which isn't that much to begin with. We were disappointed. Then, we left and went to The Anvil. We were greeted immediately and seated very fast. Our waitress, Amanda, was very prompt and got... More

We enjoyed our meal but the highlight of our evening was Amanda our server. She is a most engaging and friendly person. She enjoys her job and is attentive in serving her guests. We enjoyed our steaks and a fish from the specials menu.
