Anvil Pub & Grille in Cedarburg

It was my birthday on Friday and since I was furloughed for one last day this summer, I went to Cedarburg with my mom. For all of you non-Wisconsinites out there, Cedarburg is about 20 minutes north of Milwaukee.

I'll recap what we saw there in another post, but for now, will talk about the great place we ate lunch at: Anvil Pub & Grille.

We got there at the right time because the place was filling up after we sat down. It was quite popular!


The interior of the restaurant was cozy and historic feeling. The building is a restored blacksmith shop from the 19th century, so a history nerd like me loved it.



The patio looked nice to sit on too, but it was a hot and sunny day, so we passed on that opportunity.

Since it was my birthday, I needed to celebrate with a cider at lunch. I chose a strongbow and since this isn't as sweet as other ciders, I need to buy it more often. My mom is normally a beer drinker and hadn't had cider in a while, so I made her try it. She enjoyed the flavor too.

Lunch was a veggie forge sandwich and it was really yummy! I splurged and got fries, which were fantastic. Normally I like to get something healthier as a side, but hey, you only live once.



Mom got a blackened salmon salad and said the salmon was delicious! The salad also had mango and avocado in it.


I would definitely return to Anvil Pub & Grille next time I am in Cedarburg. It made for a unique and tasty lunch spot.

  1. Happy belated birthday!!! And yay for the midwest! :)

  2. I love Anvil! Next time you go, you have to try their black and tan onion rings. They're some of the best things on the planet! And completely worth the calories.

  3. Glad u enjoyed it! Happy belated birthday!
