We love their onion rings - they're perfect. And so is their fried chicken and their pies. Some items are average but the service is great as is the atmosphere.

When we are in Ste. Genevieve at noon, we sometimes have lunch at the Anvil. Good hearty food that tastes great and enough that you won't go away hungry. Service is always friendly and timelyl Don't forget the onion rings.

If you are looking for an established mom and pop restaurant this is a great place! I have been visiting this place for the last few years and they never disappoint. They serve some of the best fried chicken and a tip is to call with your order ahead so you have it when you get there. They serve awesome... More

One of the best places to eat in town. Call ahead if it's a weekend for a reservation, not always necessary but helps. Great place for a good burger and the best onion rings you will ever eat. Friendly service and clean. Won't go wrong with any choice of food.

I had a pleasant meal here by myself. The food was good, I got the appetizer sampler, and it was hot and tasty. The bartender (I sat at the bar) was very friendly. The atmosphere was very jovial and fun, even on a Monday night.

Inviting setting, history of Ste Genevieve seems to be wrapped up in the displays of pictures lining the walls. Everyone there seemed to want to be your friend, mellow interesting place. Food, very good, all in all, worth the experience!

A friend and I ate here on a get-away weekend. The chicken gizzards were amazing. You could tell they make them to order. She had the clam strips and German potatoes which were equally good. The owner came over and talked to us for a bit and was absolutely charming. We loved everything about this place!
