Arrived in Harpers Ferry at 7 pm on a Sunday night the Anvil was the only place open. Food was great, service not so great. Not to mention the mouse we saw that did not seem to alarm the servers.

I had the Brussels sprouts and they were the best I've ever had. Boyfriend had crab cake sandwich and says it was "very good" which is pretty high praise for him! I would definitely recommend for tasty, casual dining.

Can't really rate since they close way too early for a tourist area on a Friday night. Who closes at 9pm?

My wife & I stopped here for dinner on the recommendation of the B&B owner where we stayed. The restaurant was pleasant, our meals were well prepared and flavorful and the music was a great background.

This is a lovely restaurant in Harper's Ferry - however, it is on the outskirts so it is not in the historic district. It is a long walk into the historic district. The food is very good. The atmosphere is rustic. We all enjoyed our...More
