48-hour Short ribs were fantastic, but very disappointed at $14 plus $5 upcharge for glass of single malt scotch on the rocks. We will stop for a drink somewhere else before coming back for the great food.
I had the best salmon I've had in a long time. Cooked perfectly. Hostess and waitress were outstanding. Parking a little tight but it was a Saturday night prime time. Hoped to hear some background live music but maybe it was later!
Best roast chicken ever! Loved the carrots! Will definitely be coming back.
Tried this and was not disappointed. In fact we will add it to our list of regulars. Food was delicious and our server Sean was amazing.
Felt ignored from the wait staff. Food was over cooked. Forgot condiments and had to flag someone down and we were almost done with dinner when they brought condiments to the table.
Wonderful as always! Number one favorite spot in Delaware!
Bar was very backed up. Food very good, as always. Conner our waiter was wonderful!
Disappointed. My husband and I have frequented 1808 serval times and LOVED it. I was excited for my mom and family to try it to celebrate her birthday. Unfortunately the noise level, lack of attention from servers and getting our food out late/ different times did not make a great impression. I was saddened bc I wanted them to love it. The food once it was correct was fantastic, but we never got correct or timely drinks. Also, had to ask repeatedly for same things if we could find our server. They over booked and he was running everywhere. We have had him bf and he’s normally awesome. This just was not the experience I wanted for my moms birthday.
Nice place to go for a special celebration, date night and a pleasant evening with friends. Good menu selection that changes for the season. Good website.
We always love going to 1808 for dinner. The cocktails were excellent, as well as the appetizer (guac and chips) and dinner (shrimp and grits and 48 hour short rib). The decor is very pretty and the service was really good. I would definitely recommend 1808 for dinner and/or special occasion.
We have enjoyed the food and the ambiance for several years. While the food was not complex it was always good, tasty, and well-prepared. This was not the case on Friday night. The pork shank was tasteless and the accompaniments bland. The lasagna had little flavor and lasagna should be easy to make well. I don’t know what went wrong. New chef? Chef’s night away? In any case we’ll be slow to return.
Wonderful! We love this place!
Worth the drive from Gahanna. The choices of draft beers is amazing! A very nice wine list. We had wonderful friendly service. We had the bread plate, salads, and I had the salmon. Everything was great. To top it off we split a bread pudding which was to die for. We will be back!
Great experience. A little on the pricey side but the food was excellent. Acoustics bounce so a little hard to hear the conversation. But would recommend and will be back. Will try patio next.
I think we had an off night. First time at 1808 and it did not match the great reviews they have had. 7:30 p.m. all the specials were gone, so I ordered the NY Strip and they were out. I changed to prime rib and it was charred so badly that I could not taste the meat. We were never offered bread. When we asked it took 10 minutes while we watched others being given bread. We ordered dessert and that also took a long time. My 3 friends said their dinners were good. I always give second chances so I will try another time.
Great experience, as usual. We were there with a friend who has food allergies and they accommodated her needs wonderfully.
Incredible meal incredible service and we even got to meetthe chef who made our food. Olivia did a great job and she truly is a remarkable chef!
Really enjoyed our visit. Food is top notch. Never disappointed with 1808.
Great food and excellent service in a friendly setting. It met our every expectation.
We go to 1808 often and always enjoy our meal and the experience. The only thing I would suggest is to have a couple of dishes that are more “healthy” - tuna and the like. Used to be a salmon burger and tuna with nachos. I know that isn’t exactly healthy but better than those currently on the menu.
Great food and atmosphere, five stars!!! We will be back!!
Had a great time. Food was amazing we will return for sure
Food preparation, taste, and service are exceptional. Pleasant atmosphere. Where we were seated noise from the bar was not heard.
Steak was good, but the chocolate cheesecake was divine. It is an hour drive there for me. I would make it again just for dessert.
We come here a couple times a year; it is a bit more than moderately priced, but the food is very good. The menu has not changed a lot over the years, but there is enough variety to be able to continue to come.
First visit here. Food was good but not exceptional. Loved the look and the atmosphere but the noise level was very high. I felt at times I had to shout to talk to our friends. I would go back.
Really tasty food and great service.
Got the KFC appetizer and shrimp and grits
Great food creative dishes good bourbon list and Summer our waitress was excellent
Always a delicious dinner when we visit 1808. Perfect spot to hit up for dinner either before or after a show at the Strand across the street. Tried the pork shank this time and it was fantastic! Will definitely be back for more on our next date night!
The food quality was not what I was expecting. I was disappointed with my steak. It was burnt on the outside and tasted like charcoal; definitely not worth $32. It was a noisy environment and we had to talk very loudly to hear each other.
My friend and I were referred to 1808 by a local business owner. We were set for a ribeye steak but the waiter quickly informed us that they were out. We ordered fillet medallions and they were outstanding! Try the beet salad as well. Our waiter was professional and attentive. We will certainly return.
First time and had a great meal. Noah was an excellent server .
The ratings would have been much higher had our food been warm. The flavors were good and meat cooked perfectly but the rest of the plate was cold. The plate itself was cold. When we mentioned this to the server she didn’t offer to have the food warmed just gave us a free dessert. The cold dessert was served on a hot plate...go figure. We will likely give this place another chance as the flavors were good and prices reasonable.
Excellent food and service. Our waiter Gordon Dorr was outstanding.
Such a neat place with great food. Ambiance was wonderful. Just a cute little town
Good place overall. Food was good, but not great. Desserts are the best. Drinks were good, but small pours on wine and cocktails for the price. Hostess and bartenders were awesome. Our server was not good. He wasn’t polite and wasn’t helpful. Very dry and I think is in the wrong profession.
I love the ambiance in this old Delaware restaurant. The food is very good, and I've never had a bad meal here. My wife has celiac disease, and they have a wide selection of gluten free options (and are very attentive to cross-contamination issues in the kitchen). I highly recommend it!
We had a great time. Ordered the pork and the chicken/noodles over mashed potatoes. I was hesitant to get two starches, but apparently that’s a thing here. Good. Bar drinks were good!
Good, not great, very slow service and not that busy
