“Will definitely go back!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013

The first thing I noticed was how friendly every person was that worked there! All of them were helpful and knowledgable. The food was fair priced and delicious!! Try the beef tips. Yummy!! Everything was clean, from the table to the bathroom. Well done 1881!

“Absolutely outstanding!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013

Had the best meal at 1881 Steakhouse this past weekend... had never been there, was in Oswego for a Conference . . . I would definitely recommend this place to everyone. Started the meal with the crab cake appetizer (OMG!) it was to die for. Had the farmer's salad -- delicious! Ordered the porterhouse steak special (cooked to perfection) topped with onions and mushrooms ... amazing! Had the green beans for a side (they were a little disappointing - some were cooked more than others) But ended the dinner with the caramel topped cheese cake -- scrumptious! Will definitely go back if I'm every out that way again!

Oh, and the service . . . Tracy, our waitress, was the sweetest thing. She was knowledgable of the menu, pleasant, didn't miss a thing and made the meal even more enjoyable. Ask for her by name !!!

“Amazing food, Staff and Atmosphere.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

As a former Chef to another I want to take my hat off to Chef Christian for an amazing meal Lisa for amazing service, Lynn for getting us started and Melissa for our drinks. My girlfriend and I started with the Bacon Sallops which were cooked to perfection, after we dove into our grilled ceaser salads which in my opinion is a no brainier choice, its just a fantastic salad. For our entrees we received our eye appealing steaks with sides of 1881 Mac n Cheese, Ashton ordered the Mocha sirloin topped with a fried onion A great combo on the pallet, And I had the delmonico, both were cooked to a perfect medium rare just as we had ordered them and seasoned perfectly. 1881 Mac n cheese was simply delicious Mac n cheese with smoked gooda? Yes please. Overall Amazing food, atmosphere and Staff. We will be back most defiantly.

Took friends from Colorado to eat and had a very pleasant dining experience. Wait staff was very knowledgeable regarding menu selections and the food was cooked to perfection. Our friends were impressed with the quality of the meals seeing that they are used to dining in the Denver area.
