Went for dinner and was one of only a few tables. Had the small filet which was good but too expensive. Everything was good, not great. Wish them luck on staying open.

My wife and I joined this dining club because I wanted to see what a supper club was all about. This has been a fun experience and we are enjoying our time here. We try to go at least once or twice a week or so. Everyone is really nice and accommodating. The staff does a nice job of making... More

Excellent and timely service. Filet ordered Medium rare however was more medium and lacking the expected Juiciness.

Great service, and love the outdoor eating area and bar. All food was fresh, and prepared how it was requested.

The Anvil Club is a private supper club in East Dundee. You must be a member or a guest of a member to dine there. However, if you do get the chance to go there you should definitely inquire about a membership. The food has always been fantastic. I'd recommend the steak soup or seafood tower for starters. I've never... More

Met friends here on a Tuesday night. Very few diners at 6:30. Our service was great as we were the only diners in our dining room. I was disappointed in my steak as I ordered it medium and it was well done. Those that had pork chops thought they were dry too. It us a beautiful building and I love... More

Although not a member my aunt and uncle are and if you are given the opportunity to eat here, do not pass it up! Quite simply one of the best meals I've had in a long time, standing up to any white table cloth restaurant I've visited. Great food, great service, wonderful historical ambience.

My Husband and I attended the local Elgin Symphony Tonight and saw the Anvil Club's ad in the program saying " bring in your ticket stub afterwards for a free Brandy Ice in the Bar".. I had always wondered about this place since it's Members Only, so I dragged him to check it out; thinking that we would get some... More

Dear Shelley S, On behalf the Anvil Club, I do want to reach out and say how disappointed I am that you and your husband had this kind of experience. It is not at all typical of the hospitality our guests and members have come to expect. In talking to the staff involved, the ESO, and others, I would say... More

The iconic old façade always hinted at a hidden treasure. The façade, unfortunately, is now gone, but the trade-off is attractive interior remodeling and a choice of rooms with varying degrees of formality (i.e. casual attire or coat and tie). We are fairly new members, and enjoy the rooms with quiet elegance and an atmosphere conducive to good conversation -... More

i was invited here by my boss. They have remodeled and it looks really nice. And, now men don't have to wear Jackets, just in the stuffy room. I was disappointed that they only had a buffet for lunch, but the food was pretty good. They had someone serving prime rib, ham and lamb. The prime rib was outstanding, but... More
