Diner Reviews
  • "From the moment we arrived, the friendly staff welcomed us, and we were seated immediately in spite of being early. The food was well-prepared and presented well. We were not rushed, and enjoyed our lunch."

  • "Excellent Hot Brown and Creme Brulee! Our waiter was very helpful and attentive."

  • "I had a friend in from out of town and made reservations to a place I had not been to but heard a lot of good things about. The food was good but nothing special. We had two drinks apiece (their summer vodka special is very good,) one salad and two entrees and the cost came to $112. A bit pricey for chicken and shrimp and grits. The okra was soggy because they put the okra directly on the rice, and the cheese grit cake that came with the chicken was not cheesy enough. We also sat outside, and although they provided shade via tilted umbrellas, they had the fans facing away from us, and it was hot."

  • "Our server, Erin, was great. She was friendly and seemed to genuinely take an interest in us. The food was good, but wasn't anything different than what you would find at a similarly-priced restaurant (shrimp and grits and a meatloaf burger). The one negative thing I'd have to say is that it took an hour from our sitting down until we got our entrees. There was only 2 of us and we were there for about an hour and a half when a table next to us of 4 people were there for only about 45 minutes."

  • "The whole meal was amazing with an extensive drink list to boot. Overall great experience dining outside in a great setting."

  • "I took my boyfriend here for his birthday this past weekend and we were both thoroughly impressed! Everything from the service to the atmosphere to the food was absolutely amazing!!! We will definitely be coming back and not just for a special occasion!"
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "We have always enjoyed The Village Anchor ... but our server this night was not good... not attentive ... asked for coffee ... forced to share a pot on table and no individual condiments as normally offered.... seemed perturbed when we asked for our own coffee... I mean ... we are paying for it ... would have liked to have dessert ... but just wanted to leave .. the server just ruined the evening.. We will go back again .. certainly ... but I am considering calling first to ensure we do not have same server..."

  • "I had wanted to try this place for some time now, so my husband booked a reservation for my birthday. It was perfect! Great food, amazing cocktails and a pleasant outdoor eating area."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Village Anchor is our go-to place when entertaining! It's comforting to know we are guaranteed to impress our guests, that everyone will find something they like on the extensive menu, and the food and ambiance will be fantastic!"

  • "While visiting in KY this week we were fortunate to have someone suggest the Village Anchor to us. Although disappointed that we could not get reservations for dinner, we decided to go for a late lunch. the restaurant is charming and the staff and food were beyond what we expected. We look forward to our next time there."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "The food and service were fantastic. The decor was crazy and fun and we enjoyed it all. My only complaint is that our table was too close to other diners. To get out of my seat, we had to move the table and excuse ourselves for still bumping into another table. The people at that table agreed it was a little too close for comfort."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Tried Village Anchor for the first time after hearing nothing but great reviews. The food was amazing and the servicer was very polite and very knowledgable about the menu. The crab cakes were amazing and as good as the ones I get on the east coast. My boyfriend got the short ribs and cleaned his plate. We sat outside and the ambience was outstanding. The manager and chef both stopped by to check on the food and our experience. We will definitely be back again."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "Food was good, service was good. The menu changes left a few key items off (the burger for instance)...which is sad to see. Yes, I know there is burger night on Thursday...but my appetite doesn't always pay attention to the calendar. We ate dinner outside with my in-laws with fans going and a full house. It was really loud and difficult to hear our own conversation. The noise level would be my only negative."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "The food here is always wonderful. The pick 3 is perfect for lunch. I had the soup of the day, BLT&A, and sweet potato fries with marshmellow dipping sauce! Their bacon is to die for! The interior is beautiful, I love the art on the ceiling....but dining outside is the ticket to feeling like you are on vacation. The gardens and greenery are so beautiful."

  • "Great food, very nice atmosphere (inside and out), great service, will return! Our second visit to the Village Anchor and it was just as good as our first visit."

  • "Another great meal at one of my favorite places. I love the variety of the items on the menu. The service is always great. The staff is always helpful."

  • "Great Food, amazing Service. New menu. Great for special occasions."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "We are regular Village Anchor dinners. This past Wednesday, "half-priced" bottle night, was underwhelming. Per usual, the restaurant was slammed. We were seated indoors and waited and waited for a server. I think they were down one server. My salad arrived at a summer room temperature! The lettuce was wilted and the veggies were limp. A salad at 90+ degrees is not appetizing. My other item, new to the menu crab salad, was served at the same temperature. Normally, the kitchen functions well despite the crowds; not this time."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "I was impressed with the menu choices. I had a side salad and an appetizer for an entrée, and my husband and I split the deviled eggs 3 ways! The portions were ample and the food delicious. The server was very kind to move the fan so that it wasn't making as much noise for us. We tried the beer on tap, and enjoyed the selection."

  • "We always have a great experience at the Village Anchor!"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Love the patio dining on a beautiful summer evening. Food was very good as was the service. However, the noise level is more than energetic for it is hard to hold a conversation without raising your voice. It would help to have the music level turned down."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "Had a excellent meal with all food prepared perfectly. The service was great at first then became rushed when it grew closer to the end of the night. I recommend going earlier in the evening. "
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Great place to eat lunch or diner. Service is polite, menu is like top chef, alternative atmosphere to downtown. Haven't spent time at the bar, but looked stocked, elegant, big TVs."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Arrived 5 min before reserved time. Had to wait an additional 20 min past reserved time. We were shoved akwardly into an uncomfortable corner between what can only be described as batchelrette parties. Both of these parties were screaming and shouting at eachother for the duration of our stay. Our food came out incrediblt slow."

  • "Had reservations on a Friday night, seated immediately. Server was excellent, food too! Sat on the lanai which is a super cool atmosphere. Fantastic food and wine. Especially the won tons and hotter brown! Took friends from out of town-they want to come back soon. My new favorite place. "
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "Unfortunately our server didn't offer us a dessert option at the end of our meal, which we had planned to have. He just brought our checks and we felt rushed along. We both had the fried goat cheese salad which we love. Highly recommend for lunch!"

  • "Simply the best dining experience in all of Louisville. You can't go wrong here.."
    Dined on 5/29/2014
  • "Dine here often and have always had great food and dining experience, but last night was not good. Had a reservation but had to wait 30 minutes for our table. We ordered a bottle of wine and it wasn't brought to the table for another 30 minutes. We also asked several times for bread and it was finally brought after at least 5 or 6 requests. Our waiter offered us free dessert due to such a disappointing evening, but my husband and I don't eat desserts, so this was no concilation to us. The others in our party did enjoy the desserts. Also, the noise level was so loud that conversation was nearly impossible. Will be a while before we try to dine here again."
    Dined on 5/28/2014
  • "We took an out-of-town guest to The Village Anchor for lunch, and she was impressed before we were even seated. The food was fantastic, and it was the perfect day to dine on the patio. "
    Dined on 5/28/2014
  • "If you want to have a conversation this is not the place to go. Very noisy. The food is very good but rather pricey for lunch."
    Dined on 5/28/2014
  • "There was some people late 20 to early 30 were so loud (about 20) I could not talk to my wife or hear her 2 ft away there parents never taught them manners .Very nice place but people on that area are ????"

  • "When the staff realized they lost our reservation and we had to wait for a table, they went out of their way to accommodate us. "
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "I took my daughter there for her birthday. Perfect weather allowed us to done in the patio. Our server was extremely personable , wish I remembered his name! He took great care of us, including my 6 year old grandson. I have fiends here many times, on dates and with friends, and always enjoyed the food and atmosphere, but this visit was exceptional. I would highly recommend this restaurant. Would also highly recommend the watermelon, cucumber, jalapeño margarita. I know it sounds strange.....but what an amazing experience!! "
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "It was a great meal and even though we had to dine on a covered patio , it was warm My biggest complaint ( and the rating didn't allow me to put this ) was it was SO SO loud. I literally could not hear person next to me never mind the other guests. It was too bad because this was a get together from people all over...even South Africa. I would only eat there again with 1 other person. Never a group."
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "My family and I dined there 5/13 and are still talking about it. We live a 3.5-hr drive from Louisville, but every time we visit, the Village Anchor is a must. Love the atmosphere, and the dining can best be described as gourmet comfort food. I've never had less than a spectacular meal there. My only problem is that I have such a difficult time deciding what to order!"

  • "Gorgeous! In the middle of beautiful, lush Anchorage is Village Anchor. Such a delightful surprise sitting in a neighborhood alone. Absolutely loved this place! Great food and gorgeous outdoor scenery."
    Dined on 5/13/2014
  • "Way too expensive. If I go back I will need to be very selective in choosing an entree. My guest and I each had one glass of lower priced wines, no appetizer, no salad. Otherwise an excellent place to eat."
    Dined on 5/13/2014
  • "We dined at the Village Anchor last Monday for our anniversary. Monday's are traditionally slow business days in the restaurant industry so we thought it would be a nice quiet dinner. The indoor area we were seated in was just inside the entrance, the tables were very close together and we were in the direct traffic pattern for the kitchen, door and access to the rest rooms. Wasn't exactly a quiet place to be. The food was very good and the portion sizes were abundant. We will probably try it again but ask for an outside table weather permitting."
    Dined on 5/12/2014
  • "The food in taste and presentation was excellent. The wait staff attentive without being annoying. Ambience is enjoyable. However, our table was no more than 4 inches from the next and my back was too close to the entrance. Fortunately, it was a lovely day and did not bother me. I was concerned that a patron entering would collide with my chair. "

  • "I wanted to show my love interest a special evening and I thought of the Village Anchor. I have been there many times for dinner and for Sunday brunch. It was a huge success. Great ambiance and the food was spectacular. We started with the goat cheese appetizer and had the shrimp and grits and salmon entrees. The wine and bourbon selection was fabulous too!"
