We have been to this restaurant several times and have always been very satisfied. My personal favorite is the steak selection-many to choose from and all great. The atmosphere is quiet and romantic with fantastic service and seasonal trimmings. The wait staff has always been very attentive and interested in our celebratory reasons. We love this place and will continue... More

We went in at 4:30pm and they open at 4pm. There were some people that just stared at us at the bar as we waited to be seated as that is what the sign said to do. We waited 20 mins with no one seating us or interacting with us. Again terrible service. Would not recommend to anyone.

I wasn't even aware that there was a brunch served at 1808 despite the fact that I live about six blocks away. I ate on the patio which was generally pleasant, although it could use some cleaning. The breakfast was excellent. I ordered the breakfast plate for $10. It had bacon, sausage, eggs, biscuit, and a "country potato." All were... More

My husband and I went to 1808 for our 32 wedding anniversary on 9-22-16. We did not tell anyone this was a special occasion for us. The food was excellent! I had salmon and my husband a steak. The menu is varied and interesting, not standard fare. For dessert, my husband had chocolate cheesecake and I had creme brulee. We... More

Everything is excellent at 1808! The food is gourmet! The decor is modern retro. The prices are not cheap but the food is so worth it! My husband and I go there for our anniversary, birthdays and a night out with good friends that enjoy special food and atmosphere. The servers are always well trained and very knowledgeable about what... More

The restaurant itself is very quaint. Loved the atmosphere. I ordered the short rib and pimento mac and cheese. The short rib was good, great flavor. The mac and cheese hardly had any cheese at all. I was very disappointed. It was $20.00 and I didn't eat much of it at all. The beer was 1/2 price which was great.... More
