1836 was fantastic as always! My sister and I treated my dad to a wonderful Fathers Day lunch and as always he was amazed by the food. Being a pretty great cook hisself, it isn’t often he finds a steak he’d rate better than his own. However, the steaks from 1836 WOW him every time we visit.

Excellent food, the service was impeccable and the restaurant was quiet and a relaxing, pleasant place to celebrate an anniversary. Have eaten here on several occasions in the past and will continue to do so. In my opinion, the best restaurant in Huntsville.

The upstairs was very warm and very dark. Very difficult to read the menu. The service was good, knowledgeable waitress. Food was ok. I ordered their Trailblazer and it was very dry. My husband ordered the New York strip and it was burned and tough. The meat was very fatty. My daughter ordered a filet and it too was dry and tough. It was also her birthday and they didn’t offer her a free desert. I think Longhorn steakhouse has better food.

We ate on the back porch. The new touches to the restaurant are beautiful. The updated menu items were enticing. We had steaks and they were delicious. Great service. We will come again.

I had a 6oz Filet cooked medium with a baked potatoe and side salad. My wife had the 3 way shrimp. the food was good and the taste was good. I had a spice Bloody mary and it was a little too spice for me. Over all everything good but I felt that everything was a little over priced. I would recommend 1386 if you dont mind food on the pricey side.

I have not eaten downstairs or out side but upstairs by the bar was kinda noisy. Not like we couldn’t talk and hear each other but it wasn’t quite. So it you would want something quite maybe try the other two places.

I was delighted to find that they finally enlisted OpenTable for reservation service. It even asked if this was an occasion (yes, anniversary) and our seating preference (yes, upstairs). But apparently there was a staffing shortage issue, because upon our arrival, they had our reservation, but acted like we didn't have one. There was a long wait, then they tried to put us on the first floor next to the kitchen entrance. The greeter was very curt, and didn't bother to explain why we were being treated this way.
When we finally got a table like we reserved, the service and food were the typical excellence we experience here.
We may return some day, but certainly not for an important occasion.

My Ribeye was chewy. Everyone else in my party was pleased with their steaks. My wife and one grandson ordered the tenderloin fillet and the other grandson ordered a New York strip.

Great goat cheese appetizer. Steak cooked to our desired doneness. The German potatoes were a hit! And the ambience of the 1870s building shone through. Loved the Texas history pictures spread throughout.

The meal was outstanding. The onion soup was to die for. Our server was superb....but... we had to wait a long time to be seated. The hostess was answering phones, checking out to go orders, running all over the place, and ignored us and left us standing at her podium for entirely too long. Then she attempted to make my handicapped husband walk upstairs when I clearly told her we needed to be downstairs (he has had 3 strokes so stairs are not good). She seemed perturbed that she had to seat us downstairs. She definately needed help at her position. Other than our first impression of the hostess. I absolutely loved the experience and highly recommend this restaurant. I will give it another try. I recommend hiring more staff to greet customers.

Excellent restaurant.my ONLY complaint was it was NOT handicapped accessible. Even though at least two people in our party had obvious mobility issues, we had to climb several flights of stairs to our table. Other than that, it was an enjoyable evening and meal with family.
