We had a 7:00 reservation and had to wait about 10-15 minutes to be seated. Very nice atmosphere inside, but once we ordered we had to wait over an hour and 15 minutes for our food. The food was good but it seemed like a long time to wait when the restaurant was not completely full. The manager did come by and apologize and comped a dessert for us.

1890 has a well earned and deserved reputation for outstanding food and service. This was our first time there for dinner and we were a group of 7. Because one of our group was unable to climb the stairs (which I notified them of during the reservation process via OpenTable) they sat us in our own downstairs dining area and gave us our own wait staff. The service was fantastic, the meals were amazing, the wine list was extensive and the deserts were the perfect cap to a wonderful experience. This is not an inexpensive restaurant so be prepared. However, as a special treat for yourself and/or guests you cannot go wrong! Also, this was the first time I used OpenTable as a reservation format and was a little nervous about communicating my special needs request so I called to check after it was made and sure enough, they had everything perfect.

Wedge salad was 1/3 the size of a regular wedge. Ribeye steak had a lot of fat meat was tuff not worth $48.00. Green beans undercooked nd potatoe soup barely warm. Made reservation for 7:30 to be told when we arrived that 3 other reservations were a head of us that was also scheduled for 7:30. When finally seated it was at a table that had been empty the whole time we were there. Our waiter appeared not interested in what we wanted or needed.

Great food, beautiful setting. My only concern was I ordered a lemon drop martini but received something very different and not in martini glass. Have had them before so was looking forward to it. Didn’t want to complain so just went with it. Everything else was wonderful and the caramel brûlée best I’ve ever had!!

A dining experience that creates a special evening--the historical building, attentive professional service, and creative dishes that lived up to the description. The duck was some of the best with a crisp skin and a moist, tender center. Shrimp and grits are right there with the best of any southern kitchen.

Before going to the Granbury Theater, our group of 8 dined here. We were seated upstairs which was lovely. Our waitress and others couldn't have been more attentive, the food was delicious. The original stone walls add such a warm ambiance but also make it slightly loud at peak hours. Loved the original artwork for sale on the walls. We will definitely be back.

We go here for all our special occasions. The food is most excellent and our waiter Jim is the absolute best, attention to every detail. The spinach artichoke dip is to die for. We had the 8 oz. filet and I don’t know where you can get a better steak. We highly recommend this restaurant not just for special occasions but anytime.

We returned to the 1890 Grille this year after the Granbury Art Show and enjoyed a delicious dinner with outstanding service. The restaurant has now opened the large downstairs room as a secondary dining room in which we were seated. The main dining room upstairs is much preferred because it is cozier and next to the kitchen.

I asked whether the kitchen was enlarged to help serve the large number of tables downstairs and the answer was no. As a result, the servers have to carry the meals down a stairway to get to the first floor dining room. This and the fact that the kitchen hasn't been enlarged caused long delays in getting our food courses. This was our only negative, it took a long time to get our meal courses and complete the dinner.

Well prepared vodka gimlet before dinner cocktail.

Ordered the Texas Trilogy and found it incredibly dry and salty. Would not recommend. We ordered a salad but it did not arrive. Waitress removed it from our ticket. Ribeye was good but over salted as well. Wanted the Kahlua Chocolate Bunt Cake but it was not available. All in all, not a good dining experience this time around. :(

This is an excellent restaurant - great service and delicious food. As with any high end quality eatery, the prices reflect the value. However, I find the steaks at the Eighteen Ninety Grille comparable to more expensive places in Fort Worth and a better value. Try it.
