Lovely spot for an afternoon cocktail!

This bar has an outdoor patio that overlooks the lake. It is a beautiful spot for an afternoon cocktail! The servers are efficient and friendly! The specialty cocktails are delicious but pricey ($12).

The dining room is very small and loud, our dishes were bland and our cocktails were way to strong. The down town mall has far superior food when dining casually.

Dear Matthew B., thank you for your TripAdvisor post. We appreciate your feedback. Bistro 1834 seats about 40 people and, yes, as the room fills and people are enjoying themselves the restaurant does get lively. One can always choose to be seated on the patio overlooking the lake behind the inn or in the Old Mill Room. In addition to... More

We stop by here a few times a year for a quick coffee and dssert date. Always a good variety of options. The service is generally good, but it can get a little noisy when the late-evening bar crowd arrives.

I only had an appetizer - scallops civeche, but they were to die for. Had a French wine recommended by the server and was not disappointed.

Loved the chicken sandwich, the fries were good, the cheesecake great! We thought for the money this was a better option than the Old Mill Room. The wait staff was friendly and if you ate early you probably will beat the louder bar crowds.

We spent two nights at the Boars Head Inn last weekend. On March 28 we dined at Bistro 1834. The pictures on the web sit make the ambiance look so attractive when in fact the tables are old and wobbly. The chairs are not leather and padded except for two tables in the back. Quite a shabby decor. The fish... More
