Great Food and Even Better Service!

I was in luck today. It finally thawed a bit, so the hubz and I decided to do some antiquing and try a new restaurant we had heard about. Upon walking in we were greeted warmly by Rebecca whom sat us, and was also our server. She was very friendly and gracious about guiding us not only through the menu,... More

We went with family to enjoy some live music and food. PortaBella mushroom fingers were delicious and when I asked about the sauce made with horseradish, our server offered to have it especially for me I knew this was a great place. One member of our group had the yummy rueben, another had shrimp and grits while I had the... More

The food was ok, the build your own burger had some neat options but got really expensive really fast if you wanted more than a basic burger! The kids menu was lackluster, I expected smaller portions of their main dishes, but it was corn dogs and mac'n'cheese.

I ate here as part of a large catered party in early Feb. 2015. They were easily able to handle the large crowd. I tried the chopped BBQ with vegetables; it was a bit different from the 'eastern' vinegar-style and not like Lexington-style, but it was very good, and it was a very satisfying meal. I didn't have any desert... More

When we got there, the speakers were blaring a college basketball game. Very annoying and hard to talk. I asked them to turn it down, but the volume was still too loud. My Club sandwich was pretty lame, not very tasty and not too much in the way of cheeses or meat. Another in our party got a paddy melt,... More

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
