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!!!!

The Anvil is very dog friendly. Their home made tortilla chips are awesome. The prices and specials could be a little better or cheaper. No a bad place to eat though. The crab quesadillas are fantastic if you are lucky enough to hit them up...More
