Great place for well-prepared seafood and other coastal favorites in the Acworth area.

We sat outside, so it was lovely. Inside -- the noise level is super high and there was live music. The food itself was wonderful -- we tried all kinds of stuff. New York Strip, Caesar Salad w/Chicken, Southern Fried Chicken. Appetizer-wise, the wings were outstanding. We love the pimento cheese and friend okra. The calamari didn't have much seasoning but the chili sauce was great. Brownies for dessert - warm and yummy. Blackberry sangria was sweet but not super exciting. Overall -- a great experience for Father's Day.

The food was very average- I did not
like that the brussel sprouts were deep fried- they were completely brown- I prefer healthier vegetables and there were flies everywhere in the restaurant. It was difficult to enjoy the meal with all the flies.

Great food. Outstanding service. Inside is noisy because its all open with high ceilings. We sat outside on a warm night but there are ceiling fans and it was quite comfortable

This was our fist time at 1885 and we chose it mainly for its location (midway between everyone's homes).

Overall, the food was good, although I thought my steak was a little overpriced for what I received. Everyone liked their meals, and the apps as well.

I will say that this is a relatively noisy place to have a conversation. Probably not the right place if you're looking for a quiet evening, but if you are seeking a "gathering spot" for a group of friends then you should check it out. Especially if you live near downtown Acworth.

First time going and I was quite impressed. Food was tasty and well seasoned which is important to me. The brunch menu had a variety of breakfast items which was also a plus. The only thing I suggest is better champagne for the mimosas. They use a sparkling wine which wasn’t all that great.

All in all- great experience and will definitely be back!

Absolutely delicious! Went there for lunch and we had the Fried Flounder sandwich and the fried chicken breast and couldnt have been more pleased. Didnt feel like we were rushed inside or like the kitchen was trying to turn tables over. Service was amazing, our waitress Carson did a fantastic job!

Extremely loud. Had to move to patio to talk.
Hush puppies were like rocks. Pecan pie bread pudding was amazing.

Great, lively atmosphere - good music if you like 70/80s rock. Nice ambience - high ceilings, wide walkways. Variety of menu items means everyone will find something they like - steaks, seafood, chicken, veggies. Appetizers and desserts are tasty as well. Attentive, friendly service.

Macey was such an attentive server. She was great. Food was amazing. We probably ordered too much but everything sounded so good! My only critique is that we had a lot of flies around us when the food arrived. We figured it was because of the open air bar area that we were seated near. It was just annoying to be swatting them away all through our meal.

This restaurant has hands down the best brussels sprouts I have ever had in my life. Oh my god, just the best. The bacon and maple adds the best touch. I will come back just for this side alone. I couldn't stop thinking about them after getting home. The shrimp and grits were great too, the sauce is very tasty.

My only complaint was that there was very little mask wearing. Especially with the people cooking my food. As America is not even at 50% vaccinated, I feel restaurants should still be wearing masks.
As far as my food, it was excellent and my server was very knowledgeable, friendly, and constantly made sure we had everything we need.

On an earlier visit all workers wore mask. On this recent visit no waiter or workers were wearing mask. I was very surprised and not comfortable. Not sure I will return until after the pandemic is better controlled. Sorry.
