We ate at the Dewberry for dinner while staying at the Marriott for one evening. We we did not have high expectations but were pleasantly surprised at the tasty food for a reasonable cost. Our server, Brandon, was very attentive. After sitting down, we asked...to change tables and it was no problem...plus he immediately sanitized the table we had been sitting at, which reassured me of Marriott's safe practices during this pandemic. We shared the Happy Hour-priced Hummus Plate. I had the Brown Street Turkey Club sandwich which was accompanied by excellent French fries (which I had not expected), and my husband had the salmon. All were very delicious. Plus the Happy Hour prices for house wine and beer made for a very reasonable bill. The only drawback was that the menu was a bit limited, but I felt there was enough variety to please different tastes.More

We arrived at the hotel after hours on the road, and chose the attached restaurant out of fatigue more than any other criterion. It proved to be an enjoyable evening, with good food, friendly service, and pleasant surroundings. The place was nearly deserted, since the...University students were on lock-down due to a covid-19 panic by the school administration. More food for us, but things felt strange, like a post apocalyptic movie. The menu is short, just two sandwiches, or four main courses, two salads, and three appetizers. We had shrimp in a garlic sauce for an appetizer, good and tasty. My companion had a green salad, which was very good. I chose a caesar salad, which was tasty, with real anchovies in the sauce, a mark of a good restaurant. Then I had the salmon, which was tender and flavorful, not overcooked at all. We had a California Chardonnay for $42, a bit steep, but what could we do? The bill came to $105 before tip. The service was slow in spite of the deserted restaurant. We were not in a hurry, so I didn't mind, but perhaps this is not the best place to hit when you have a busy schedule.More

Good breakfast in the morning. Each morning staying at the hotel I ate breakfast here and it was good. The buffet was the best for the fresh fruit. There are other menu items with lunch and dinner served here also.

Yesterday was my 2nd trip here for the lunch buffet. Meat Monday featured a grilled chicken and a very tender beef, broccoli cheddar soup, and a great salad bar. I also visited on a Thursday that featured BBQ which was very tasty as well. Our...server shared that Friday's fried chicken has been the most popular, so I'll try that next. The $12 buffet includes a beverage and dessert as well. Service was very attentive and we were in and out quickly. Parking is easy and plentiful!More

I am writing specifically about the Dewberry's new Lunch Buffet. It runs Monday - Friday and has a different buffet each day. I tried Monday's menu last week. It consisted of salad bar, broccoli cheddar soup, grilled steak mushroom with demi-glaze, herb roasted sliced chicken,...parmesan potato wedges steamed broccolini with red peppers, baked cheese filled with mushroom crepe with red pepper sauce, a non-alchoholic beverage and a little dessert. All of this food costs only $12.00 and it is all excellent. A very pleasant server came to our table a couple of times to urge us to go back for seconds and to not forget to get dessert. Also she gave us each a coupon for a free appetizer for a later time. On a previous visit for dinner, I sampled some of their appetizers and they were quite yummy. Other days of the week feature mexican, asian, texan, and southern USA. I want to go back and try everyday.More

One of the nights during a recent stay at the Marriott hotel, I decided giving this restaurant inside it a try for a late night dinner around 9:30 PM on a Sunday. Although they have plenty of room to improve in the service department, I...really enjoyed my meal. Their posted dining hours state they are open daily until midnight, but it's evident at some point in the evening they downsize their service staff to a skeleton crew. Upon entering the restaurant, nobody greeted me or helped me with where to sit. I eventually had to ask the bartender and was told to sit anywhere I'd like. So, I picked the table of my choice and a few minutes later the bartender came to ask me how he could help. I asked him for a beer menu as to which he replied is that all you're going to have. I replied no and I would also like to eat and asked for some menus. See, normally when a guest sits down at a restaurant table, they are given menus. This man didn't seem to be accustomed with such practice. After his mind woke up and he returned with menus, I ordered a Rhinegest Truth IPA beer ($7) to drink and a Flatbread ($14) to eat. The Truth American IPA is a local beer out of Rhinegeist Brewery in Cincinnati, OH. It was poured out of a 12 oz. can and this was my first time drinking one. It was very good and I'd have no problem ordering one again. The Flatbread was just outstanding and I could easily of had gulped down another 1 or 2 orders of these babies in the same sitting. The bread was cooked just right, there were lobs of gorgonzola cheese, and it was all-around very well-seasoned and dripping with flavor. Yummy! I look forward to returning on a future visit to sample more menu selections as there's a few more that caught my eye that I would like to sample.More

The atmosphere is great, I love the decor. The service was very good, food delivered quickly, fresh and hot. Good selection of draft beer, including from a local brewery. Prices are in line with what you should expect in a hotel bar.

Dewberry 1850 is located in the Marriott. The setting is open, airy and very pleasant. Like virtually all Marriott restaurants, it offers a very good breakfast. Prices are quite reasonable, and service is good.
