Diner Reviews
  • "Went back and forth not knowing what place to choose for our anniversary dinner, but decided on this place, because of couple of recommendations. We arrived a little earlier than our reservation and was seated with no problem. The food was excellent, along with the service. We will be back!"

  • "I haven't been to Village Anchor and had a bad meal yet with either the lunch or diner menu. My wife surprised me with a lunch date for my Birthday. We had an early lunch before the crowds started coming in. Our waitress was very knowledgeable of the food and drink menu and stopped by the table enough to make sure we were OK but not to much to be an bother. I had the Rueben and she had the French Onion / Sandwich combo. She is very picky on French Onion soup and absolutely loved it."

  • "We went back a second time because so many people rave about it. We thought maybe we were missing something or every place has a bad night. Our service was better this time, but overall the experience was barely average. I don't get the fascination. Food was mediocre and overpriced. Seated on the porch which was packed, loud, fans on making it louder, and oh - let's pump loud music on top of that. We couldn't hear one another talk. There are so many great restaurants in Louisville. Why folks continue to go back here, I don't get."

  • "We went to the Village Anchor for my boyfriend's birthday. We had heard that it was such a great place to eat. I had made reservations 2 weeks in advance. While I entirely understand that it was the PGA weekend and there were a lot of people there, we received absolutely noticeably less service than all other customers. From the treatment by the hostesses and the wait staff's unprofessionalism- it was an absolute disaster. I asked the hostess if it was because we had booked through "open table" and she said everything but 'yes'. SO- hint to everyone- don't make reservations through this website. You'll get the worst seats next to the bathrooms, or the outside table next to the fans and wait station. Terrible birthday celebration!!!"

  • "Best shrimp and grits in town! The Lobster corn dog was fabulous!"
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "The food and service was what we expected except for after the meal arrived at our table, we only saw our server 2 more times. She vanished. Her service was excellent up until that point. This would not stop me from coming back, but it would from using the same server."

  • "Grossly over priced for this restaurant. I had fish and chips. Mike Linnig's does not have a competitor here. Not enough menu variety."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "Great consistancy of great food and service. We were there for a late lunch and had great service with excellent food even thought they were getting ready to close. They were not in a hurry to rush us out and it was very enjoyable. The outdoor covered eating area is great year round"

  • "Great food, outstanding service, little pricey. All in all a wonderful dining experience for a first date."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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. "

  • "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. "

  • "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!"
