Service was good and the atmosphere is quaint. Try the hot crab dip...yummo! The pulled pork is done in house and is excellent. This place is worth it if you are in town!

We ate there twice on our trip to Harpers Ferry and enjoyed it both times. This restaurant offers something for everyone. Whether you're a foodie from DC or just want some local cuisine, chef Jason has a knack for providing a little of everything without being overwhelming. The treatment of the Brussels sprouts cannot be ignored - flash fried with a beautiful gravy! Daily specials, great salads, and a beer, wine, and cider list that offers up some of the best local efforts. Relaxed but attentive waitstaff makes you feel like you're home. Thank you for a job well done!

I've reviewed this restaurant before but we returned for their winter traditional Oyster Fest. Enjoyed an array of apps: crab chips, Oysters Rockefeller, raw oysters on the half shell. Tried the entrees of fried oysters and a baked bacon and oyster pot pie, and a po boy. All delicious! I think the Oyster Fest runs a couple more weeks.

Desserts were also good though we were pretty full: shoefly pie and a chocolate caramel sea salt cheesecake.

Nice atmosphere and good service. Will return, esp when the weather improves enough to enjoy some of that outdoor Harpers Ferry goodness.

A friend and I went to the Anvil tonight to try their new steak special they offer on Thursday night's. OMG! I got the two inch cut hoping to take half of it home for the next day, but it was so good I ate the whole thing! This delicious steak only cost $20 so you better get there and try it before they are gone!!!!

Always enjoy meeting friends on Friday nights at the Anvil. Atmosphere is quaint, service friendly and live music adds to to experience! Even if you are not a fan, you have to try the Brussels sprouts on the appetizer menu! They are Fabulous!!!!
