This was my first time at 1816 and I will be back! This is the cutest spot that really showcases how great Corydon really is. Food was seriously so good, from the appetizer to the dessert.

Gem of a restaurant nestled in Corydon. Excellent menu and drinks. Great vibe with cool background music. You no longer need to travel to Louisville for excellent dining!

Chef Scott creates the best recipes. Everything is always top shelf tasty. I know that when I make a reservation for dinner that what ever I order will be the best on the menu. A bonus with these recipes is that most of the products are from out local farmers.

Food is really good! Small, small place! Felt crammed especially with all the Covid rules for restaurants. Person sitting behind me kept bumping me as well as staff walking past our table! We had reservations for 7:30. We were sat at our table upon walking inside. However our server Nick took another tables order first. This table of 3 were seated after us. Nick also didn’t mention any specials for the evening & was very slow with drinks. Hostess should look at her cell phone less. Food menu online doesn’t match the restaurant menu when you visit. If it wasn’t for the made to order food quality food , we most likely would not return.

Amazing dinner! The Go To Margarita and Lavender Mule were a perfect start with the fried green tomatoes. Nick had the Smash Burger with fries & added pork belly. I had the Crispy Skin Chicken with perfectly roasted veggies and Bourbon Gravy!
This was an awesome date night and we'll definitely come back!

The service was good, waitress was friendly. Took a while to get our food, especially since we were the first customers to arrive for lunch.
My smash burger was burnt not caramelized. No juice at all. The truffle fries were good. My wife had the crispy chicken and enjoyed it . The vegetables that came with her meal were charred on one side which gave them a burnt taste We ate here because of the good reviews...chef must have had an off day.

Delicious and different kinds of food. Roasted squash and white bean hummus and fried green tomatoes delicious. Steak tender and delicious and cooked correctly. The meat loaf dish was overcooked and the red sauce over it was too spicy (should be a warning on the menu). French fries a little too salty. We had two servings of the wild berry bread pudding; one was burnt on part of top and edges, and the sauce over it was runny and not as thick and tasty as expected. Not very many berries. That was not worth the price. Noisy atmosphere when everyone was talking, plus the music seemed quite loud. But overall, a pleasant evening and I would recommend it to others.

Beyond amazing. Best ramen I’ve ever had, and I’ve had LOTS of authentic ramen. Pork egg rolls were to die for. We will be coming back regularly.
