1808 American Bistro serves classic American fare with the occasional Southern and Cajun twists. Steaks grilled to order. Shrimp and Grits with a bit of a bite. A delectable array of house made sauces, vinaigrettes, remoulades, tapenades, aioli and demi-glaces. Not to mention the pastas, burgers, sandwiches, salads, appetizers and desserts, all of the mouthwatering variety.

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.

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.

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 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!

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!!!!

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.

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.

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.

I've been going to 1808 since they have been open. Never disappoints. Doesn't matter if I'm going for a beer by myself, a nice dinner with my wife or going with a group of friends. Always a great experience.
