My husband and I and a friend arrived and were greeted cheerfully and shown to our awaiting table. We ordered the caprese stuffed mushrooms--to die for--as a starter. Recommend ordering. I ordered the honey glazed pork chop with garlic mashed potatoes and collards. I was asked how I liked it cooked and thinking it would be a good sized chop,... More

After wandering downtown Fayetteville searching for a restaurant that looked other than ordinary, we came upon Circa 1800. From the first greeting to the payment of the bill, everything was done with care and polish. The food was wonderful...fresh, beautifully presented, and portions were good sized. I wish I had had room for dessert because there were some on the... More

We visit Fayetteville frequently as our son and his family live there. Up until now, the restaurants have been somewhere between awful and bad franchise. Circa 1800 has a fresh menu with local specialties: Shrimp starter, Spicy crab dip on deep-fried crostini; excellent crab cakes, creamed shrimp on grits, etc. along with excellent pork chops and steaks. The sauce with... More

My wife and I met friends for brunch at this new original restaurant in historic downtown Fayetteville. Having seen pictures of the restaurant's offerings on Circa 1800's Facebook page my expectations were very high. Circa 1800 did not disappoint! The menu is unique with dishes that you likely won't find anywhere else in the City of Fayetteville. The flavor profiles... More

Nine of us went there for a special occasion. Our ages ranged from five to seventy five so we had taste buds from every generation! The kitchen wisely kept the menu small, only four starches and small choices of fish and meat. The mushroom appetizers were delicious and a lively fight developed between father and son for the last one!... More

The restaurant is very small and cozy. The service is not that great. There are tables directly in the doorway, which my husband and I were seated. When asked if we could move to a table against the wall we were told that table was reserved for someone with reservations, which we had. The whole time we dined no one... More

Our son graduated from Methodist University and in looking for a venue for a family celebration dinner for 14 people, we came across Circa 1800 - and I am so glad we did. Accommodating staff, good wine list and several microbrews on tap added to our experience. Everyone in our party enjoyed their food from the Mahi to to the... More

I had dinner here on a business trip, This is a small restaurant in a great location in the historic district. The martini I had, a mint lemontini, was excellent and the service friendly and excellent, However, as mentioned by others, the food was very salty and poorly prepared. I had the chicken piccata with parmesan orzo which was supposedly... More

Just a nice experience! A friend and I randomly chose this place for lunch, glad we did. (The parking is on street 2 hour FYI.) We sat at the bar, but there was available table seating. The menu was not extensive, but everything coming out of the kitchen looked tasty. Nice martini and wine list, again not extensive, but enough... More
