Anvil Pub & Grille Restaurant in Cedarburg


The Anvil Pub and Grille is an area staple with delicious food and a charming rustic atmosphere. Built inside a restored 19th-century Blacksmith’s shop, you can eat inside at the full bar, outside on the patio with beautiful views of Cedar Creek Waterfall, or in personal igloos for an outdoor feel with the safety and privacy of your own space. Curbside pickup is also offered during this time for those that would like to eat in the comfort of their room. We highly recommend you try one of their famous Forge Sandwiches, piping hot and freshly baked in a stone hearth oven!

Union House

Union House has an impressive menu full of delicious and unique choices like assorted wine and cocktails and scrumptious “shareables” like garlic lime shrimp, pesto steak crostini, and mixed olives. Top off your night with a festive indulgence like their Dessert Board featuring boozie chocolate sauce, cookies, marshmallows, pound cake, and even more! If you’re looking for a more immersive foodie experience during your Cedarburg getaway, we recommend checking out their classes – they do sell out fast though!

Premier dining with locally-sourced ingredients, Brandywine is an eatery with a distinct flair and bold flavors. Housed in a building dating back to 1862, it is a historical landmark as well as one of the area’s top restaurants. With delectable dishes like their Grilled Poached Pear, Butternut Squash Ravioli, and Roasted Duck Breast, you’re sure to find something to love! We love the cozy atmosphere of their intimate restaurant, but that does mean you’ll want to get your dinner reservations in early! They also currently offer take-out for those that wish to take their food to go!
