    It was my father’s 92nd birthday. We had the first reservation when they opened at 5:00. My sister arrived at 4:48 and the hostess was rude and told her she was too early and they weren’t set up yet so she sat in her car. We all went in at 5:00 and sat there for awhile before our server finally came over and asked if we wanted anything other than water to drink. We did and asked if we could have some menus. He was surprised we didn’t have any and went and got some. Everything took a long time to get and I ordered ice cream for my dad and coffee for myself and I never got the coffee and we had waited way too long for a scoop of ice cream so I got up and went to our server and told him to forget the ice cream and bring our check. We did get that right away. I had said in our reservation that it was my dads birthday and he was never acknowledged. It’s hard to take him out and we wanted to make it a special time for him. Very disappointing evening.

    What a fun lunch meeting we had! The only challenge was selecting my meal - it all sounded good. I wound up going with the Pick Three, which was a great option. Can't wait to come back.

    I thought that I booked a table for 2 inside. It was labeled as standard seating versus patio/outdoors. When we arrived we were seated on the patio that is surrounded by plastic. Not an ideal place when it's 20 degrees outside and you're hoping for a nice date night. We should have left and gone elsewhere, but we ate dinner in our coats on an inadequately "heated" patio. French onion soup was good, brussels sprout salad was good, cocktails were good. Seating was bad.

    Great place and love the area...the restaurant was unique and the food was wonderful! My wife did soup and appetizers and I had fried chicken, Which is something I don’t normally get when I go out but when I saw a server walk by with it on the tray I was sold. And I was not disappointed. The the brown sugar old fashion was spot on! Delaney, our server, was great! Cheers!

    We were seated in the outdoor area that's enclosed. Not usually a problem but the heat was out. There was the fireplace and a tiny space heater right next to the fireplace, but the gaping holes around the edges of the covers that are used on the openings rendered both useless if you weren't sitting by the fire. We couldn't change tables to sit away from the openings, as someone had requested the one closer the fireplace and there was a larger party coming and using the other smaller table. (note- the part did not use the table.) We were encouraged to use blankets they provided. We did stay. Our server was excellent. She was very attentive and gave us wonderful suggestions. The food was also excellent. But eating with freezing hands while wearing a coat on with a blanket over my lap really did not add to the experience. I don't blame the hostess or wait staff for any of this. Suggestion for owner when there's no heat: Either turn away business OR get more space heaters for such occurrences. Yes, it might not be often. But I can tell you I will never be back in cold weather if I am to sit outside. I will not risk it.

    We’ve eaten at the Village Anchor many times. The food is excellent and overall very nice. The service last night was embarrassingly poor as we took out of town guests. Our order was delivered incorrectly, no water refills, and wine arrived too late for the meal. I was embarrassed and disappointed.

    This is my favorite place for lunch with my friend. We usually go one Wednesday / month. We request the same table and waiter every time. We live in Floyds Knobs Indiana. The food and service is always great. Plus 1/2 price Wine on Wednesday is always a good value. Great atmosphere . I had my birthday dinner there last week.

    Our table was on the upstairs covered patio. It was cold-the guys sat against the covered part and kept their winter jacket on the entire time. I kept mine across my lap. It would be ok when the heat would kick on but got cold again. It was very very loud as well-the entire patio was full of guests and it’s a rather tight space-to be expected. Our server was very nice but very busy. A food runner brought out our salads. My husband asked for another blue cheese dressing -we got a look that the server did not understand and he never got any. The menu is not that vast (and unchanged for awhile from what I remember) and I was disappointed with the Brussels sprout salad I ordered.

    We celebrated our 31st wedding anniversary at The Village Anchor and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Georgia is a top-notch server. The gentleman who brought our food to the table was refreshingly friendly. The Old Hag martini was delicious as were the Brussels Sprouts salad, fish tacos, shrimp & grits, carrot cake, and white buffalo after-dinner drink. All perfect! Most deserving of a rave review. Thank you, Village Anchor, for offering diners an exceptional experience.

    Main issue: We had a $20 off two entrees coupon. We came on 1/2 price wine Wednesday. When we received our bill- we were told that only one discount could be used on the bill. I did not see that written anywhere on the coupon. I eat here at least once a month for lunch and I live in Floyds Knobs Indiana. The issue is that we put the coupons on the table before ordering and no one told us we could either use the $20.00 off or 1/2 price bottle of wine but not both. I felt bad for the couple that came with us because it was my birthday and they paid the bill. The waitress was great and she apologized for not knowing the rules. I love this place even though it is a little distance for traveling. Just next time it needs to be mentioned that on Wine Wednesday you can’t use the two together. Thanks for listening.

    Great atmosphere, service & food! My parents came in from Frankfort & wanted to eat a Hot Brown for brunch, but NOT at a chain restaurant. They absolutely LOVED the Village Anchor’s location, ambience & menu selection. The fried green tomatoes & Ky Hot Brown were both, phenomenal! We’re already making plans for a return trip sooner then later!

    Booked the reservation for an anniversary - specified that on the reservation as well as when we arrived. Sat outside right by the door amongst 4 other tables - incredibly loud, server did a great job but looked scattered and spread thin. Inside area had multiple tables open during our time there, so my request for inside seating was simply ignored. Nothing done to celebrate the anniversary by the staff. Food was excellent, ordered specialty drinks and dessert to celebrate as well. Overall, I guess I was hoping for a little more from the restaurant considering the occasion.

    Normally we like The Anchor, but were very disappointed this time. We had to remind our server to bring water and to bring my niece her cocktail. My sister's salmon was way over cooked, so she sent it back, again stating that she wanted it cooked "rare". It took almost 15 minutes to get the replacement (way to long!) and it was still over cooked. Our server then informed us that the chef will not cook salmon "rare". Why didn't he tell us that when it was first ordered?
