1847 Bar and Grill
Dinner on NYE. Had a reservation yet had to wait for a table while the next people in line behind us, who did not have a reservation, were immediately seated. Not sure why, several tables were set and ready.
Our table had a couple 1/2 wedge salads and a couple caeser salads, a prime rib (a much better cut than our last visit), chicken marsala fettuccine (very good, rich), and sirloin tips (spendy but melt in your mouth good). Salads were good, they make their own dressings. It would be great if they had more gluten free choices, especially pasta options.
The only complaint is that it was cold in the restaurant sitting by the windows. We will not sit by the windows in the winter again.
We had a last minute change of plans on none other than Christmas Day due to major illness in the family where we were to spend Christmas Dinner. We looked and made a quick reservation for that evening for 1847. The food, atmosphere and great service did not disappoint. We were delighted. We have been here before, but never on a holiday, so we will think about this in the future!! The Prime Rib was GREAT!
This was the third visit to 1847. The first two dinners were excellent. This third dinner was terrible. We had two prime rib dinners; one was ordered "medium well" and came bloody rare, the other was ordered "well" and was so very tough even the serated knife couldn't cut it. I managed to eat two bits, then left the rest on the plate.
The waitress was excellent, and apologized. She did take the rare dinner back and cooked it more. There was nothing she could do for the terribly tough cut.
Overall we had a very nice dinner and friendly waitress. The atmosphere was nice though chilly-I kept my coat on as we were seated below a vent which the waitress said couldn’t be turned off. Unfortunately, they were out of prime rib so that was disappointing. The steelhead was a good and generous portion, but I did order it with mixed veggies and it came incorrectly with the other choice of just asparagus. Another order at the table had requested no mushrooms and their order came with them. The “great” fried chicken was mediocre. Our bread came late and cold. Even with these little issues, I would still recommend. We had a very nice evening. The outside seating looked very nice so I plan to return in good weather to try it out!
I’ve been eating here for years. The food and the service is outstanding. Will continue to eat here for years.
We have a family tradition of dining out for lunch on Christmas Eve -- adults only. We look for sophisticated dining and like to eat dinner at lunchtime. It's been a little difficult to find the right kind of place in the mid Willamette Valley. Most creative cuisine is found only at dinner time and this year, Christmas Eve was on Monday, making it doubly difficult. We've often driven over an hour to McMinnville, but wanted to stay closer to home this year. We were delighted to discover 1847! Although the menu did not include any dinner entrees (they are famous for prime rib) and we did not want burgers, there were so many interesting and ample salads and appetizers, plus really superb home made pastas, that we were able to piece together interesting multi course meals from these. We started with scallops and crab cakes -- each done perfectly, with interesting little salads -- Asian inspired greens and seaweeds with the scallops and a tart green apple coleslaw with the crab cakes. Then one of us had a perfectly cooked seared tuna salad -- with lots of the rare tuna on a bed of good greens. We tried two of the pastas -- a fettuccine with chicken marsala and mushrooms in a creamy sauce and a wild mushroom ravioli with langoustine (crawfish), asparagus and other yummy stuff in a butter sauce. Both were ample and amazing. One of us had the iceberg wedge with Rogue Valley creamery blue cheese, bacon and tomatoes -- incredibly good and so generous with the blue cheese and bacon, it could have been a main course. We also tried the locally made beer sausage on a bed of peppers -- just great! By this time we had put substantial amounts of food in take out boxes and were so full but everything had been great so we wanted to taste the desserts! We tried the rustic apple tart and the chocolate cake with amarena cherries. Both were excellent and so ample that good portions came home of those too. Excellent wine selection and a good cocktail. We'll be back!
We enjoyed a nice lunch on Christmas Eve. We have eaten at 1847 many times. The food was good and the service was friendly. Thank you for another great meal!
Second time we've dined there. Again, had a great meal and a great time. The wine was so good we ordered a 2nd bottle and took home what we did not finish. Oregon law allows you to do that. The salad, soup, bread prime rib and desert were all very good and our waiter was outstanding; very careful to take care of our needs although he was busy but did not forget us once and careful to "doggie bag" up the leftovers and excess wine from the second bottle. We'll come back again either on our own or with guests like we did this time. A real gem of a restaurant in our area.
Great experience for Thanksgiving
Food was so good. Had a wedge salad and bacon mac and cheese. Perfect for lunch. My mother and sister had the scallops and both said they were yummy. Service was great. Waters and coffee filled regularly. Food timing was spot on. Thank you for a wonderful birthday lunch experience.
Wonderful service, we tipped him handsomely because it was not his fault the kitchen was ill prepared for a large party they had obviously known about to handle it and the regular restaurant patrons. Food was cooked poorly which left us paying for a very expensive dog treats and still going home to eat cereal. Ruined our anniversary experience, so if you have several hours to spare and Don't mind your food coming out wrong repeatedly then come on down. This used to be a great place, good atmosphere, great bartender and wait staff but someone needs to fix that kitchen cause you will not get what you pay for
Everything was good except it was extremely noisy. Would help to do something to improve the acoustics
Wonderful place to celebrate my parents 61st Anniversary. Attentive service and excellent food in a lovely setting.
The ambiance, service, and offered food was well prepared and well presented. I would have been happy to see vegan/vegetarian/gluten free options as well, some of our parties choices were restricted to appetizers only. Would definitely go again if with a group not diet restricted, otherwise I'd choose another restaurant.
It was nice to stroll in the Japanese Garden before dinner, then eat on the patio.
The food has been exceptional ever time and the atmosphere has been excellent for the occasions
The food and service was great. The table we were sat at was dirty, but they came by and cleaned it right away.
Can’t go wrong sitting inside by the fireplace
Or outside by the water.
Always a good meal and good service. Creative menu.
One week after my last review I am happy to report that service, every appetizer and wine choices were back up to their superb standard.
Patio service for Happy Hour was great and so nice to share this restaurant with our friends who wee first timers and with our doggies made the occasion wonderful.
We’re glad the 1847 is in town, but the food is only moderately good, even with a limited menu. Not worth the $$, in our opinion. Staff is great. The food options are limited, and expensive. Third time dining here. May not come back. Much better value and quality elsewhere, sorry to say.
We ordered dinner and my gal asked for the french fry appetizer and that was noted and off went the server. Well we did get them after dinner was served and they did taste great so were planning to go back and have just Fry's and A desert! Yes, we did have a desert after the meal that was really well presented, flavorful and will get us back again for dinner or burnch.
4 of us went for happy hour on the patio and the wait staff was great ! We have been to this restaurant at least 7 times and have never been disappointed. However, on this day, everyone of our 3 appetizers were over cooked (one was burned-onion rings with dried up onions on the inside). The artichokes were over battered and again to brown and over cooked. The tempura vegetables were good and lightly battered yet over cooked a bit.
These are standard appetizers we’ve had in the past and have always been delicious.
We definitely will return cause this is only goof we’ve experienced.
Hopefully the cooks will be on top of this and if recipes have changed, please return to your formal delicious treats!
Too much sauce on ribs, on the side would be best. And side salad should come with entrée, even if smaller. Both meals were very good. We will come back and try again. Also would be nicer if seats were not torn (first impressions). Thank you
Very nice atmosphere. Food was excellent. Would highly recommend to my friends visiting Albany OR!!!
Good prime rib and garlick mashed potatoes. Dogs are welcome in their out door patio overlooking the Japanese garden and pond.
We had come 2 years ago and while we loved the seafood, the steaks were very blah. Thus time, however, our party of 6 were very impressed by the meals we all had. The fried chicken was juicy and plentiful, the prime rib was tasty, and everyone agreed that the short ribs were the best order at the table! The desserts and coffee were wonderful also. It was a great anniversary dinner and I am glad we gave it another try.
We were surprised to find such a good restaurant in Lebanon, OR. We had excellent service and a tasty meal.
Second time here. Overall very good food. But both times we were served over-ripe broccoli that was undercooked. Not good!
Lovely Mother's Day lunch with family! Staff was attentive and professional. Everyone enjoyed their meals. The Vampire Slayer burger got rave remarks and I plan to return soon to give it a try! I'd say you'd have a hard time finding a better meal for the price and quality in this area!
Went for a nice Mother's Day lunch with my mother and my children. Had reservations so we were seated right away and food came pretty quick considering they were busy for lunch. We all tried something new and were not disappointed at all. Looking forward to our next meal here.
Gorgeous view of the bay. Excellent food and excellent service. Don't come here in a hurry - relax, enjoy the view and a fantastic meal.
Beautiful gem! Big city food and atmosphere located in a small town setting!
We have had Carl as our waiter several times and he never fails to give us the best service!
Every time I go I am never disappointed. I actually look forward to meeting friends and hosting business meeting here.
Nate who meets and greats you always remembers my name, World class customer service.
The whole team is timely on meeting dinning needs.
The over view is picturesque.
The outside has great fauna and flora and a water pond that you can gaze at for hours.
Great for a walk after eating,
Sat out on the patio with our dog and had wine, snacks and shared a hamburger. All items ordered were delicious and backdrop scenery quite lovely. Thank heaven for a warm day for a change- oh let spring be here!! The service was outstanding (Gerry). Hats off to manager Kaylee!
The food was fabulous. Our waiter, Carl, suggested the perfect wine and took great care in helping me pick out a meal that fit my diet. It's a beautiful place. I will most definitely be back.
This restaurant never disappoints. The food was amazing, the drinks are delicious, and the service is spectacular!
We drive about 45 minutes to eat at 1847. It is one of our favorite places for a special occasion, a nice dinner, or a meeting place with friends. Consistently great food, excellent service, beautiful facilities (hotel, restaurant, outdoor patio, gardens).
