Foodies or Family

A great family or date night restaurant. The fit for foodies menu ranges from Korean fried chicken and shrimp and grits to the finest of aged steaks. The wine list is excellent but the jewels of the bar are any one of the 46 craft beers on tap. This is truly a beer lovers paradise!

Anyone writing a positive review on this restaurant needs to find an addiction counselor to get over their addiction to syrupy balsamic vinegar reduction. Quit drowning everything in it. Also, possibly hire a chef who isn't a hack and works within his skill range (he seems perfectly qualified for McDonald's). Other then that he does make a good grilled cheese... More

No need to go to Polaris. This place is great. My wife, friends and I eat here a few times a year. Great food, great craft beer selection and well worth the visit. Great place!!!

My daughter and I popped in at 7:30 on a sat night for dinner, without reservations. The wait was maybe 20 minutes. Menu had everything ... We had cauliflower app, salads and steak entrees. All very good. Total with wine maybe $90. Very nice place, crowd was a little older and "well- heeled" as they say. Not a college scene.... More

This is a great spot for a date, special occasion or a nice family dinner, although wouldn't recommend it for very young children as they'd be bored and other diners would be too close for comfort for restless children. The food and prices are at the high end of offerings in Delaware. Nice lighting and decor creates an upscale pub... More

We had our valentine's day dinner here this year, it was great! There are not huge portions, which is good when you are having a glass of wine, and want to try desserts. The meal had a ton of flavor and had a great atmosphere.

We met friends for Sunday brunch ( they are open despite the listing saying they are closed.) We started at the bar. Amazing selection of beer and perfect bloody Mary's. Ask about the bottomless drink option. $18 vs $6 for one and you can mix up the drinks. Brunch menu is limited but we each ordered something different and all... More

Food cold. When sent back came out "warm". A somewhat apologetic response. Free dessert but for amount spent, mediocre at best.

1808 exceeded my expectations, both in quality and service. Both prime rib and salmon were excellent and this may be the best on-tap selection of beer in town. This place is really stepping it up a notch, for Delaware. Kudos.
