Heard about the change and a group dropped in! New owner Vickie was so nice and we enjoyed the atmosphere and food! Favorites were the pimento cheese, okra and fried portobellos. We will return very soon! Brought menus home to share!

While the service is a little slow, it is because they are usually very busy and the wait it worth it. the food is excellent, tastefully prepared and plated. It is also very reasonably priced.

I have been visiting the 1841 about every 2-3 weeks. It is very much improved. A fair beer selection and the food is very good. I have had sandwiches, burgers and a couple entrees, all good. Tinting on windows would be a plus. The sun is blinding in the evening.

Business has changed hands. Food is good but service is very slow. What I've seen on the menu their prices are high for a hamburger.

I was recommended this place while I was in town working. I was told it was all fresh and made from scratch and delicious. I was told the truth! It is a small cafe/bar with live music at dinner. The waitress was very nice and knowledgeable. The food was very good and abundant. I left quite satisfied and filled! I... More

We went at 4 on a Saturday. I had the shrimp and grits. They were delish. The collard greens were pretty good but a little spicy (I think they had pepper flakes in them).
