The Village Anchor Restaurant Review

: Now a suburb of Louisville, Anchorage was once the weekend summer destination for that city’s wealthy denizens. The train track that brought their families to the enormous Victorian houses with wraparound porches still operates, rattling the restaurant’s walls at regular intervals. Most of the seating is outside, in the downstairs Sea Hag Pub or on the upper-story patio and seasonally enclosed porch. Real wood-burning fireplaces add warmth and ambience. The gastropub menu includes corn pudding served in little cast-iron pots, and a pork chop the size of two hands squeezed together. Order any sandwich (we suggest the BLT) just for the rosemary-dusted fries served on the side. Other dishes range from elk chili to ahi salad, fried chicken and vegetable lasagna. Complement the food with a selection from the wine list or the bourbon list, or a draft beer. End the meal with carrot cake with the cheesecake twist. Service can be a bit whimsical, but the surroundings are so pleasant, you really won’t mind.
