“1863 Restaurant is outstanding!”
Reviewed April 11, 2012

We visit the 1863 Restaurant on a regular basis and we have never been disappointed.
The food is fresh, well-prepared, and beautifully presented in a timely manner. We have enjoyed breakfast, lunch, as well as dinner here and find the food delicious every time.
The service is impeccable from John, the manager, to a very professional, friendly, yet non-intrusive wait staff, Nathaniel and Brandy deserve particular accolades in this area.
The immaculate and pleasant dining room and the varied and fairly priced menu all serve to make this restaurant a favorite of ours.

“Waited 1 Hour for Breakfast”
Reviewed April 1, 2012 via mobile

If you don't mind waiting one hour for eggs and toast this is the place for you. Wait staff are very nice but whoever is running the kitchen is totally incompetent. Don't bother eating here. Go to a nearby restaurant for breakfast.

“Beautiful dining atmosphere”
Reviewed November 19, 2011

Food and service both excellent and elegant. The wait staff carefully watched each diner and removed dinnerware without us noticing.

“A Pleasant Experience”
Reviewed November 14, 2011

I enjoyed the food and the service. We lingered after dinner enjoying conversation, and no one hovered over us suggesting we should be on our way.

“Dissapointing”
Reviewed October 1, 2011

I'm surprised by all the good reviews. I guess we went on a bad night. The food was just ok. I've seen kids meals bigger than my $24 steak. The waitstaff was practically nonexistent the entire time, and it took over an hour to get our food. There were only two other diners there, so it wasn't that they were busy. I definitely wouldn't eat there again.
