The appetizer scallops is way too spicy, and the dessert are mediocre for the price. The speed for bring up the food is also way too fast, which is quite disturbing for a date night. In general, not recommended for the date couple.
The service and location are great. We were surprised by a special menu due to the New Years holiday so we did not get the original food we were looking forward to. The food was still good, but menu was limited to entree, appetizer and dessert and three selections for the entree and appetizer and only two desserts. A little pricey but we don't go here unless it's a special occasion so that's fine.
Food was eclectic but not my style. On the pricey side--- dinner for 2 with wine over $100. Server was knowledgeable but not eat here again.
Oysters were great but other meals were unimpressive
We will go back! We began with the arugula salad. It's large so my husband and I split it. Very light and tasty. Shaved Parm cheese and diced pears evened out the bitterness of the arugula. My husband ordered the ribeye, medium, and it was perfect. Juicy, tender, with dollops of red pepper aioli. It was served with piping hot potato croquettes and roasted broccoli. I had the grilled swordfish, served over a white bean purée. No disappointment here. The fish smelled tasted fresh, was simply seasoned with cracked pepper and topped with a delish diced celery slaw. So refreshing! The white beans were surprisingly tasty; almost like mashed potatoes, but better! I was surprised that the combo of beans and fish was such a tasty mix. We ended the evening with sweet potato pie. Can't go wrong there. Now for some downsides. There is a parking garage next to the restaurant for the library. Our waiter told us it closes when the library does, but the hours aren't posted, so we got our car out of there, just in case. Also, this place is very NOISY! Concrete floors, metal chairs, and a high, open ceiling lead to a super loud space. The night we went, there were only four other tables being served and it was really hard to hear each other. This was an anniversary dinner so we were hoping for a more quiet atmosphere. I can't imagine what it's like when full on a weekend evening. Other than that, it was a delightful evening.
Clams were delicious but steak appeared to be frozen. This meat selection was very dissapointing. Staff very knowledgeable and provided great service.
Atmosphere of a diner. Cement floors, metal chairs over-bright lighting. Swordfish & scallops were fine but pork belly was a fatty joke and the attempted haute cuisine extras were just boring.
Might be a fun burger joint if it was fun and they served burgers.
Absolutely great tasting food! The location and exterior is not the greatest. We ended at this place a Saturday evening meeting friend from out of city with no time to plan ahead. The restaurant was a great surprise and we had a great time. Did not feel rushed to finish and even ordered dessert, the olive oil cake was super tasty as well. We all ordered different dishes (fish,lamb,beef), everybody loved their food. I like pinot noir and they did not had one on the menu. So I ordered something else but mentioned to the server that I like pinot. Did you see the 5 stars? Our server did such great job and came back with a fabulous pinot! Heartly recommend you give this place a try, I'll for sure come back.
The scallop carpaccio was outrageous! Being able to choose where your oysters come from was a great touch. My ribeye was delicious, and my friend loved his swordfish.
The raw bar items were great. Interesting and tasty apps and entrees.
We always have a positive experience at Plow and Anchor. Even though there was a little hiccup with seating, the server did the right thing and came up with a perfect solution. It's the best service in town now and the menu is always creative. It's my favorite place for lunch and dinner.
The entrees were amazing! My wife had the scallops and u had the catfish. Best catfish ever!
Too pricey for what you get - East coast pricing. Waiter didn't know about any of the menu items and forgot to tell us about the specials. Raunchy rap music was our ambiance. The restaurant was about 1/3 full on a Saturday night. Overall would not recommend.
Meatball and shrimp apps were good. Burgers were great.
Grouper was fishy could use some seasoning. Catfish was the winner! Delicious!
The Shrimp appetizer was amazing....full of unique flavor....the Catfish was delicious as well.
I wasn't expecting much and was pleasantly surprised. We took all the recommendations of the waiter and they were all fabulous!!! We would visit again.
Love Plow and Anchor. Oysters are always fresh. Small plates are creative. Service is warm and friendly, and they have a very nice wine list.
Good food . A little pricey for the portion size
The bouillebase was not authentic. It was something else with lukewarm tomato gravy.
Had special 3-course Devour Downtown menu -- salad, bouillabaisse, and berry cobbler. Salad and cobbler were very tasty and unusual. Bouillabaisse was unremarkable. Good wine list and suggestions for pairings. All hard surfaces and thus very noisy. Service was so-so but to be fair the place was very full. Great downtown location with on-street parking.
