Our kids and grandkids hosted a 50th wedding anniversary dinner for us and reserved the Chef's Table which is a private room with a large antique table that easily seated our group of 12. It was ideal since we had grandkids ages 6 to 12 that would have felt stifled in the main diningroom. Here afer the meal they were... More

Two members of the party had grilled amberjack. Came with a grit cake. Both people raved over it! I had NOLA BBQ shrimp. It was good, but not the best I've ever had (I lived in New Orleans). Service was good. They use local products whenever possible. Good vegetarian options. It's a Very Nice Non Chain. Definitely recommend it!

The dishes are local and prepared differently--and with their own flare. The service is friendly and good. Nice for business or family meal. Taste reigns.

We went in on a Tuesday for lunch. We didn't make reservations but we're seated immediately at 11:45. Our server was at our table within minutes and had our drink order taken and served quickly. We placed our order of shrimp & grits and a burger. Each meal was delivered to our table piping hot and perfect! This is a... More

Amazing food and service. I am so glad we found this place. We sat at the bar and the bartender (shoot, I can't remember his name, maybe Charlie) was AMAZING! Very personable, packed bar and yet he didn't look rushed or flustered. Still provided great service and took time to talk talk with each patron all the while making sure... More

This has always been a good place for a nice dinner. It's small enough to have a nice atmosphere, but big enough to have available seating.

This was a positive dinner experience with a good friend. We had the shrimp and grits special appetizer, and it was amazing. Then the portabella mushroom entree was delicious. But the crowning glory was the mocha bread pudding. It was phenomenal. Our server was outstanding--very friendly and helpful. I recommend it!

Three of the four of us had wonderful meals of Southern Eggs Benedict and Chicken Fried Chicken. My husband, however, went with the "special" eggs and sliced brisket. It WAS NOT good. The beef was flavorless and dry. What a disappointment! We have been here several times an it's always been good. Sunday was a blunder for 1892.

This is one of the best restaurants I have ever eaten in...bar none. Their food is creatively paired, conceived and served. I had venison, my spouse had a steak and my friend had tofu. All were excellent. All came with several vegetables and all were delicious. Our server was incredible. He was usually the house bartender. We were so impressed... More

Should have trusted the reviews on this one, especially regarding brisket... boiled (it seemed), tasteless, as was the sauce on it, and the black beans (straight out of a can, no flavor). The skordalia was okay, but the flatbread literally burnt. The waiter was nice, but generally clueless, as he needed 4 attempts to get the wine orders correct (and,... More
