Very odd entrance and layout,
we went upstairs to check in to be redirected back downstairs. Wobbly table and chairs, given one silverware. Beer taps were all broken. Ordered goat cheese salad which had one small piece
of fried goat cheese on it although good. Great server and very attentive food runner.Not in a hurry to return although I’m sure being sat inside may have been more enjoyable.
The Big Eye Tuna was amazing!!!
Thank you Shannon for a great evening!!!
The Village Anchor is my favorite spot in Louisville. We love every day, but especially Wine Down Wednesdays.
Met with a friend at High Top downstairs in the bar area. Loved the atmosphere. Started with the brown sugar Old Fashioned and shared a bottle of half-priced wine (Wednesday special). Split the gorgonzola wedge and the special of the day, which was steak tacos in honor of Cinco de Mayo. Our food was excellent, service was perfect, and the entire experience was pleasant. The Village Anchor always delivers and I'd recommend to anyone looking for good food and a cozy atmosphere.
My favorite restaurant. Shannon did a fabulous job making our experience first rate. The food, service, and ambiance were exceptional. See you next month. 😊
Nice casual patio - COVID safe environment with good food and a wonderful waiter.

Ha d a little problem with a "chatty" server that made an error on our order. The order was corrected and credited.
Wonderful as always!
Perfect spot to meet friends in a warm atmosphere
Date night with the wife. Made reservations thru open table. Got there and was told our table was on the patio. Wife asked if it was heated. Hostess said it was and we had to walk back down to patio. We were seated at our table and the heat was not on and outside temp was 60-63. We were not prepared. We asked for inside dining and they provided. Service picked up after first drink order and food was quick to come out. I had the filet and it was so good. Atmosphere was excellent.
Great service! Loved our time. We brought our three boys and we were all very happy with our experience.
Always awesome!!! Thank you Shannon!!!
A wonderful lunch, great food and service.
We love the warm environment at this restaurant and the food never disappoints. The shrimp and grits are great as is the pork chop.
Awesome service. Food is good not great. Great spot
Amanda was our server. The best we have ever had there!!!
We enjoyed a great dinner at the Village Anchor. The food, as well as the service from Allen was fantastic!
Very nice place
Food was very tasty and service was excellent. Our server was John who was also the bartender and he is the best. Experience was was much better than we first expected when entering the place.
Great food and ambiance. Outdoor dining is wonderful. Downfall is they are charging a $2 per person extra fee to your meal due to “covid expenses”. This is the first restaurant I have seen do this since last Spring and we have dined out a frequently as we have been able to. The extra charge seems excessive and unnecessary.
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!
Friendly servers, food good, love the ambience, good value
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!
