Great staff, great food, great ambiance. First visited about ten years ago for a wedding rehearsal dinner, and make a point to go back each time I'm in town.

My husband and I came here for lunch during our visit to Harpers Ferry. The food was very good. It's a smaller restaurant and the service was good. The crab soup was amazing with lots and lots of crab meat! My husband had The Rachel which he really enjoyed.

Someone suggested this restaurant to us because they stated that they had a pretty nice experience. Unfortunelty, we did not share the same experience. When we arrived one of the servers had a horrible attitude. She sat us down at a table and never came back. We waited for 10 minutes before someone to come and greet us. Someone finally... More

This restaurant was very close to the Cantuta Inn were we stayed and it was recommended by the hosts. Our server treated us like a local and was friendly. We had the Ribeye steak dinner with onions and came with chef's surprise vegetables; asparagus were fresh but the red potatoes were undercooked and very disappointing. There was live music and...

There are not many restaurants that stay open in the evening in Harper's Ferry. The Anvil was an excellent choice for dinner. We had the special which was shrimp and pan seared scallops with sun dried tomatoes and mushrooms over linguini. Fantastic. Our server was friendly and added great service for our wonderful meal.
