Great Location

I drove through Port Huron a few years ago and saw Bistro 1882. I thought the building looked good but unfortunately it was open at the time. On this visit I took the long way driving from Rochester NY back to Chicago hoping 1882 would be open. It took me a while to find it 'cos it wasn't where I... read more

I have eaten here several times and each time I tell myself not to come back due to the inflated prices. And, the food is not really French, either. If you want to celebrate a special occasion, head down the river road toward St. Clair and go to The River Crab. The bistro had recently moved to downtown on the... More

Do not go there this review is about the restaurants unprofessional managers attitude towards his Guests. I do want to thank the wait persons who took care of us this review is not a reflection of the wonderful service that was provided to us. Let me be clear we had a group of 17 for dinner and drinks Saturday July... More

We are long time patrons of the Bistro! We love it and when ever we get a chance to drop in we always do even if it is just for a quick drink and snack! The food is always great, seriously have never had a bad meal!! The service is 10++ and the location is amazing! We love Port Huron... More

My husband and I found this wonderful little restaurant in the AAA book while on vacation in MI. We visited the Lighthouse Park on the St.Clair River and noticed this was a nearby place for dinner. We were pleasantly surprised to find a lovely server to greet us and a super menu of gourmet foods we actually loved. We had... More

We've eaten several times at Bistro 1882. We like to go here for special occasions. The menu is varied and interesting. The food has been very well prepared and tasty. The deserts are A-1. The service is very friendly but a trifle slow. The restaurant is in an interesting old building and has atmosphere. This is our favourite dining spot... More

I was here a few years ago on another business trip and remembered how good it was then. This trip I was looking for the same friendly service and excellent french style food. I was not disappointed as the crab-stuffed filet was tender with every bite and the flavors were melded well and deliciously rich. This was one of the... More

This was not our first visit to 1882 and it was also excellent food - good selection, good preparation, etc. - and good service. What else should a restaurant provide ?

We read about this restaurant and booked a table for our one night stay at the nearby Thomas Edison Inn (about a five minute walk away). The decor is charming and very pleasant, and the service was excellent. The food was not bad, but not as good as I had hoped. My duck was so overwhelmed by the overdose of... More
