We enjoyed a great dinner at the Village Anchor. The food, as well as the service from Allen was fantastic!
Very nice place
My daughter and I were visiting from Ohio and had an excellent meal. The atmosphere was fantastic & the food was great. I would definitely recommend this restaurant!
Great restaurant for every day and special occasions.
Our server and Food was amazing! Prices reasonable
We Left because service was awful. We waited at our table over 15 minutes for a waiter.
Birthday dinner for my friend. Great food, great service. Sat outside.
Food was OUTSTANDING and service SUPERB
We had a great experience! We were celebrating our 21 anniversary! Our waitress was very sweet and twice acknowledged our anniversary! We received free dessert to celebrate as well!
Always the best with Shannon!!!
Great food, love the Brussel Sprouts and Goat cheese appetizers!
Great place to for a date night; we always have a great experience.
The atmosphere was pleasant and the food was amazing.
Pretty bummed out our experience because this is a favorite restaurant of ours. We saw our server 3 times. Once to take our order, to bring the food, and receive our check. We ordered an appetizer, salad, and entree to share along with with some drinks. Appetizer: fried green tomatoes were way over cooked, near burnt; Salad: supposed to have an over easy egg on top which ended up with a hard center, and the brussel sprouts were burnt. Entree: shrimp and grits were fine, but grits were clumpy.
It was wonderful as always. This is our favorite spot!
The food was awesome as usual and our server Alan was the best!
Alan was our server, and he is truly outstanding!!!
My sister and I came from Indianapolis to take our mother to lunch along with 2 dear friends of hers. Everyone enjoyed their lunch. It was delicious and the service was fantastic.
Nice way to commemorate Easter!
Good food and nice ambiance!
Staff was friendly. Food was good. My husband got the scallops, he loved them ( pricey tho). I got the salmon (moist)with asparagus( done just right).
Excellent food! And atmosphere! Manager and chef was very accommodating! Highly recommend!
We always enjoy our time at Village Anchor. We especially enjoyed it for Easter brunch this year. The protein bowl topped with grilled chicken was delish. My husband enjoyed his red velvet pancakes. Look forward to our next dining experience there!
Outstanding! We will certainly go back to the Village Anchor. A bit pricey but the food and ambiance were exceptional.
Terrific as always!
Awesome service and food! We loved the atmosphere. First time dining in. I loved the filet and my fiance loved his pork chop! Great drinks too.
We had a delicious meal and enjoyed our experience.
This is hands down our favorite restaurant in Louisville! Excellent food, service and prices! The wontons, shrimp and grits, goat cheese salad and hot brown were excellent! Drinks were delicious. Must try the fried derby pie next time.
The best night of our week is at the Village with Shannon!!!
The food was good. It is always good quality.
I have been going to the Village Anchor for years because I live in Anchorage and it is the neighborhood hangout.
My only complaint is that the menu has not changed in years. I know what I am going to order before I get there. Vary the menu or add more nightly specials.
It’s time to have the drink specials congruent through the bottom and top level, I.e the mimosas that are served downstairs should also be offered upstairs! I heard several tables ask for the same thing!!!! ITs TIME.
I really like their food; however, I got a bad order of shrimp and grits.
Always great food at the Anchor. It is definitely one of my favorite places to go eat.
Everything was wonderful as always. We had asked to sit in the covered patio area, once we were seated it was a little too noisy so we asked if we could move inside and the staff was happy to accommodate our request. Can’t wait for some warmer weather to enjoy the patio!
Great food! Wonderful waiter! I love the Brussel Sprout Salad and my two friends got the Shrimp and Grits. It was all amazing as usual!
Always amazing and yumtastic!!! Shannon makes our week great!!!
Excellent meal, service and experience!
Great food. Love the location. Needs a coffee shop for mornings.
Little slow on the drink orders
It’s was fine but dining out now is such a treat so it needs to be really good!
