The service is good and their onion rings and fried chicken are the best around. We ordered the special, grilled pork tenderloin, which was so-so. I ordered the beef liver and it was real good. Their salads are good,too, but I ordered a side of sauerkraut and it was awful - it was cold and right out of the can... More

Been there a number of times. Quaint place that serves good food. No smoke either. People are friendly. Known for their onion rings. Reasonable prices.

Our family of four visited the Anvil. The burger, the French dip, onion rings, and french fries were especially good. The service was excellent and All of the food came out piping hot. Overall, a very enjoyable lunch.

We love their onion rings - they're perfect. And so is their fried chicken and their pies. Some items are average but the service is great as is the atmosphere.

When we are in Ste. Genevieve at noon, we sometimes have lunch at the Anvil. Good hearty food that tastes great and enough that you won't go away hungry. Service is always friendly and timelyl Don't forget the onion rings.

If you are looking for an established mom and pop restaurant this is a great place! I have been visiting this place for the last few years and they never disappoint.

One of the best places to eat in town. Call ahead if it's a weekend for a reservation, not always necessary but helps. Great place for a good burger and the best onion rings you will ever eat. Friendly service and clean. Won't go wrong with any choice of food.
