1808 American Bistro
Our full bar offers 48 cold craft beers on draft, and a delightfully tippling assortment of wines and spirits. Stop by for dinner for a beer, or any combination thereof that tickles your fancy.
Reservations recommended for the Dining Room. However, we cannot accommodate reservations for the Patio and Bar.
We sat in the bar for a date night. It was really nice and the two bartenders that evening were very personable and friendly.
We had a wonderful evening here. The brussel sprouts were out of this world!!
Wasn't as nice as we thought it would be. Server was nice, but didn't seem sure of what they have. The cheese curds were yummy as was my chicken noodles, but my husband's steak was overcooked and dry.
There was a screaming child that didn't help with things.
Excellent service and great food.
Excellent service And good
Great food over all one steak was a little over cook more medium well than medium but still good (not worth complaining about). Our server was excellent couldn't have done a better job. The fall inspired drinks were fantastic.
We had a great time and loved the food! We will go back soon!
Great food and atmosphere. Only issue I had was finding a parking place. Not a ton of parking close by. Since I don't know the town well, maybe I just didn't know where to park.
Food was amazing and service was great!
We do not live in Delaware but make it a point to drive the few minutes it takes to get there just to enjoy this spot. They have an amazing variety of food choices, delicious craft cocktails and impressive selection of wine and beer. Chef prepares seasonal dishes that really display a talent for savory flavors reflecting the essence of the season. Had a variety of gluten free choices and conscious of food allergies as well. Nice atmosphere as well, really felt safe and comfortable.
Thank you so much! Hope to serve you again soon!
Overall good food and service, we were there early at 4pm when they opened and were not served our food til 1 1/4 hours later so that seemed to be way to long of a time considering we were not there during a "rush" time.
Amazing food, great service, clean and socially conscious. Always recommend any of the restaurants owned by these brothers.
Always a great experience!!!
Good time. Too small a table for 6 adults. Especially now with Covid floating around.
Brunch was good service was slow seemed they did not have Enough staff for brunch. We waited a very long time before we got drinks.
The only reason that this location didn’t get 5 stars across the board is that they seemed shorthanded with the waitstaff. However, everything else about brunch was great. The drinks and meals were delicious.
The food is always great and the ambience is amazing. Definitely the best restaurant in Delaware.
The food was, as always, amazing. The restaurant was perfectly set up for safe and socially distant dining. Our server, Noah, was excellent. Warm, polite, professional and always within easy reach. So grateful for such a great experience to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary and our first meal out since March!
I took my son to dinner. This was his first time at this restaurant. He loved the atmosphere from entering the door and the ambience that the building has. We started with cocktails and beef carpaccio which was amazing. Our meal was the 48 hour short ribs and polenta.....outstanding! Of course we finished with the apple bread pudding and the New Orleans beignets.....Over the top from beginning to end!
Service was slower than previous experiences; with younger kids, this can pose challenges.
It was my wife and I first time out in months. We could not have been more happy! Food was amazing, and service was even better. We are huge foodies and loved every moment. Thanks for a great normal night!
Thank you so much for the kind review and thank you for choosing us for your first night out! We're so glad you enjoyed! :)
Always delish! Tried the short ribs for the first time and will definitely have them again!
The food was fantastic, have not had the same thing twice because I want to try everything on the menu!!
It was great as usual!!!
Enjoyed a dinner out with the family. Food was as great, salmon, 24hour short rib and grilled cheese was incredible.
Our wait with a reservation considering we were late, was fast. When we were seated it was about 10 minutes before we were waited on. We got our soup and salad in a reasonable amount of time, but then it took over 20 minutes from that point until our dinner arrived. The scallops and creamy mushroom risotto was very good. I would order again. And if you go, definitely order the whiskey bread pudding. It was buttery and full of brown sugar..........AMAZING!!!!
Came in with a group of friends and we had the best time! The service was great, the food was delicious and the chocolate martini’s are a little slice of heaven! Everything we tried was exceptional!
We did not care for the 1808 Steak as it was very tough. When we advised our server that we were not satisfied with the 1808 Steak and why she returned our plate to the kitchen and asked what we preferred to have. Our meal was replaced and we were not charged for the first order. They said they want customers to be satisfied.
We had a wonderful dinner. Attentive service, delicious food and lovely atmosphere!
The food was excellent. Our waitress was timely and pleasant. We have eaten at 1808 several times and always enjoyed the dining experience. It is also one of the few restaurants we have been to where we have enjoyed almost everything on the menu.
Great food and service every time we go here. Will definitely be back again in the future.
Great place for a casual dinner or special occasion
Great food and drinks!! Service was excellent.
We can always anticipate that the food will be good. We especially like the long beer list because we love trying different beers. I like that I can usually find something healthy with a lot of vegetables. The service is always lovely.
Delicious food! We will definitely be back!
First time back since the reopen. As usual, you nailed it. So happy to be back here again.
Desmond(bartender) is awesome! He always takes the time to get to know and genuinely interact with his customers.
Excellent and consistent, 1808 is also set up well for dining safely and securely during this time of Covid-19.
Wanted to check this place out. My food was a little cold but very tasty. Great wine, beer and bourbon selection. Would go back:
The guacamole and beignets are out of this world. The drink selection is huge. Everything was so good.
