The only dish served that was not a 4-5 on the scale was the sauteed mushrooms. Instead of whole mushrooms sauteed in butter they were chopped with some other sides, onion and peppers, etc. and the dish would have been at best a 2 on a five point scale

we were disappointed. It was noisy to the point of being unable to converse with each other or get the waiters attention. We had to shout at her several times to be heard. Nor did she approach us to attend to our requests unless we called to get her attention.
No tablecloths or placemats. Really?! At those prices!
When our entree was served the waiter reached across one of us to serve the other rather than walk around the table to serve the second diner.
Is there an elevator for handicapped or seniors? If so one was not offered and we both would have appreciated a lift.
We were amazed at your limited menu: no shrimp cocktail, no baked potato. Too cliche?
ONE HIGH POINT: The steaks were outstanding! Best we have eaten in this area!
Sorry, we could not recommend 1890 to friends. Leaves too much to be desired.

Went for my moms birthday. Her salmon was undercooked for her liking. Waiters response was that’s the way the chef cooks it. Waiter came back out and said temp was 1 degree under where fish should be. Brought out 15 minutes later new plate of nicely cooked salmon. We all resumed eating our cold dinners. Food was good, just waitstaff should have handled situation differently.

The 1890 is one of our favorite places in Granbury and the closest thing to fine dining in the area. The 1890 has great food and service. Only the top restaurants in Fort Worth come close and they cost a whole lot more. The crab cake is real crab and plenty of it. The steaks are cooked perfectly and the service is friendly and helpful.

We always enjoy 1890. The servers and management know how to take care of us. They’re genuinely concerned about the quality of their food and take pride in serving what they offer. There’s a wide selection to choose from, all excellent. We’ve never been disappointed and look forward to returning

My wife and I were vendors at the Harvest Moon Art Festival in Granbury all weekend and we wanted to eat at 1890 after the final show. The food was very good overall. The only exception was one my main course. I had the shrimp and grits. The shrimp were prepared very well as was the sauce. The downfall of the dish were the grits. They were very thick and clumpy. almost like oatmeal that has sat in the pan too long. I think they should have been smoother and not so thick. Otherwise, nice restaurant.

My wife and I went here for the first time and we weren’t sure what to expect but from the top down we had the best experience we could have asked for. The service was top notch and the food was out of this world! We highly recommend the bacon jalapeño Mac and cheese, it was without a doubt one of the best things I have ever eaten! In fact we bought another one to go so we could eat it again later.

Fabulous restaurant in so many ways! The overall experience from the bar for pre dinner drinks, to the hostess, the atmosphere, the very attentive and knowledgeable wait staff , ending with the outstanding menu items, presentation and quality!! Only complaint is in our party of 12, 10 of us live out of town so we can't eat there every night!! Well done! Cheers to 1890!!

We were pleasantly surprised to find such a great restaurant in a small lake community like Granbury. This restaurant would hold it's own in any major city.

Food was perfect. Wait staff was excellent. The dining area is very pretty.

We didn't have a single complaint and will definitely be going back.

For a $300 meal you shouldn't have to ask 4 different waiters for dressing for a salad, you shouldn't have to ask 5 times if the waitress could bring you the drink you ordered 30 minutes ago. Our waitress never brought the bread until we were finished with our meal,, never refilled our water glasses, never told us about specials for the evening, did not want to offer us dessert we almost had to demand to see the dessert menu. extremly loud and horrible service.

Very nice grille and lounge located right on the square in downtown Granbury. Ambiance was warm and inviting with the main dining areas residing upstairs. We had a nice view of the square from our table along with a terrific sunset. My wife and I both ordered steak - filet for her and I decided on the NY strip. The filet could have been cut with her fork it was so tender. My strip was very flavorful and in line for a sirloin cut. I may have ordered the ribeye if I had the chance to do it again. The sides, salads and wine were all paired perfect with our entrees. Our server was excellent, and Scott had a wealth of information about the restaurant and the local surroundings. In all I would highly recommend 1890 for anyone looking for upscale dining in Granbury with a casual atmosphere.

Was a wonderful meal, the meat was incredibly tasty and tender. Service was prompt and attentive. Only thing not 5 star was noise level. Didn't make for a good romantic dinner because conversation is difficult. Natural stone walls beautiful, but make noise really loud in room upstairs.

One other issue was didn't see an elevator, some older people were struggling to get up stairwell to upper dining room.

This restaurant was recommended by the B&B we stayed at and said it was at the top of their list. We have to agree. The food was outstanding and so was the service. If you live within 50 miles of Granbury it's worth the trip. Don't be discouraged by the town square construction either, park anywhere you can, you're in for a treat.

My wife and I, celebrating her birthday, had a very nice experience at 1890. Really great service! My wife had a filet and I had a NY strip. Cooked perfectly and great aged beef.
Creme brulee was also great! Our waitress, when she found out it was a birthday celebration, brought it out with a mini-sparkler! Having eaten in first class restaurants from Philadelphia to Dallas to Portland, 1890 is equal!

We were very impressed by the food and the wait staff. The staff was attentive and friendly and the food was cooked to perfection.

We were a little taken back by the lack of finesse of the finishes and ambiance. It left us lacking and the noise level made it hard to hear one another over a table for 2. But overall the experience was good and we would visit again if we return to the area.
