I have eaten here twice, both times when my Nephew and his family come to town. I consider this to be the very best restaurant in Lenoir. Every dish served is a surprise in taste. We always look forward to trying something different on the menu and there is a lot to choose from. The busy servers are a delight... More

If you are looking for a great local resturant look no further than the 1841 Cafe. The food is great, the wait staff is very friendly and the price is right. They have a great 1/2 wing & beer special on Wednesday night, along with great local entertainment several nights a week. If you want a great local resturant the... More

We have been there before, but not since the current management took over in April 2014. Based on this visit, we will be back much more often as the food was great. Appetizer of Artichoke and Spinach Dip was good and served with warm bread pieces. That was followed by a salad made with fresh mixed greens, cucumbers, grated cheese... More

Good menu, and our meals were excellent. Everyone who works there was extremely friendly and helpful. Café 1841 is located right downtown, in an historic building. It was an all around good experience!

We had our engagement party here and loved every minute of it. Being that Lenoir is a small town, the restaurant managers really catered to us and our family and friends. They even made special things, not on the menu, that they heard I liked!

Downtown Lenoir is budding ... and the sooner folks discover the real town versus the strip malls heading towards Blowing Rock, a renaissance will happen here. 1841 Cafe had live music on the night I came in with five other friends. We had the looks of folks ready to be rowdy, but in reality, we were just darn hungry …... More

Decided to give this a try since it changed from sweet T's. I thought Sweet T's was better, especially menu. Food ok, not really innovative. Place could use some sprucing up. Karen was very nice. Food came out , 3 dishes, one at a time, minutes apart. Odd!

New management has really added. Food is great, service is excellent, and entertainment was as good as it gets. Over 100 people attended and as far as I could tell everyone enjoyed themselves!

I ate here on June 13th with a group of co-workers, we were from out of town and selected this restaurant based on the reviews. I must say I was disappointed. We were seated promptly - but then I noticed folks seated after us were waited upon and served their drinks before our waitress attended to our table for the... More
