Had a good meal at the anvil. Not great, not bad. I had the special of the evening which was snapper , crab cake, and shrimp. The crab cake was quite good, shrimp not bad, snapper fairly tasteless. Service was good, staff friendly. Prices fair.

Delicious food, great service. It was like we were being welcomed home. There is ample parking in the lot across the street. The specials not only sounded delicious but looked it. A guitar player sang pleasant and familiar songs. Loved the decorations on the wall.

It will be a long walk and uphill. I believe it is safe but not sure about streetlights. I am sure if you call the restaurant they can give you more info.
