The 1844 House was recommended to my sibling, who is attending St Lawrence University. What a delight! I had driven over 4 hours to Potsdam and was a little disheveled upon arrival, but the hostess waved me right over to my party as if I were dressed to the nines. I had the lobster and shrimp fettuccine; it was delicious and perfectly portioned (each course was not too big, not too small) and very tasty. The waitress was very friendly and professional. The whole experience was relaxed and delicious- I've heard weekends are quite busy so make a reservation in advance. I really wish this restaurant was in my neighbourhood!
