Unfortunately the staff was not prepared for the influx of customers taking over an hour to revive our food and then to arrive and be told that they were out of a side. They did offer to replace the side, but after an hour wait, I choose to pass. The food was not spectacular, just average. The staff were friendly... More

We were visiting in Lenoir while our daughter was at Ginger cascades and stopped in at 1841 for some lunch. After talking to the waitress we decided just to have a small appetizer and come back at dinner because there would be live music. We enjoyed our appetizer and our dinners when we came back. I also treated myself to... More

My wife and I dined at 1841 this past Saturday night. Excellent food as always. One of the best 14oz ribeye steak I have had in years. Cooked with love and wonderfully seasoned and cooked to perfection. Tender to the point of melting in my mouth. Even better than a high priced steak house I have eaten at recently. Fresh... More

Tried for first time. Wife order Shrimp and grits and wife says not good at all. Supervisor was very concerned and tried to rectify. Seemed that pricing was high also.

1841 serves good food at moderate prices with a good beer selection, wine and mixed drinks available. Music on the weekends and you will always see friendly local faces.

The owners are determined to make this place work. I've seen several businesses try, but these people really work hard. The food is good, but a little pricey. The menu is limited. The atmosphere is nice, but can get loud. We enjoy when they have local bands playing for tips. But don't sit up front of you want to talk... More

This is a favorite lunch place for me in Lenoir. I often go with friends. They have several vegetarian entrees that are very good. My favorite is the Seasonal vegetables with grits and cajun sauce. Yum!

My husband and had lunch here and loved it! He ordered a hamburger with fries while I just ordered the seasonal vegetables and fried okra. Both choices were delicious!

I remember this place being something different about ten years ago, but I walked in and was delighted with the experience. The waitress was reason enough to stop: what a hoot she is !! Very knowledgeable about the menu --- ask about the desserts !! I enjoyed the chicken salad croissant and a side salad, which were fantastic. The croissants... More
