    Brunch was fabulous! We got the Country Benedict, the Trout and Hash, and the Gravy and Biscuits. All 3 dishes were cooked well as quite tasty. And the coffe was superb. Would love to know what brand that coffee is.

    Fair service and fair food. Not a great way to celebrate our anniversary! Made reservations and was seated in the bar area. Had to ask for a server after 10 mins of waiting. $10 drink was nothing but ice and food was fair at best. Was hoping for a great dinner to celebrate our 17th anniversary, but instead paid $100 for slightly warm shrimp pasta, shrimp and grits that had the tails still on.

    The amberjack special was very good. Not sure the chef knew how to cook steak. Asked for medium rare and came out rare the first time and after we sent it back. A little noisy but what bar restaurant isn’t. Had a fantastic server!

    Food was as good as always. Very good special tonight. It was Amberjack which we don’t get often in our area. It was a wonderful dish. Pimento cheese appetizer is one of our favorites. Good drinks as well. Aaron was a great server and took great care of us.

    Normally very good food. But my pasta dish arrived lukewarm. The dish had sat too long before being brought to my table. The grilled shrimp were overcooked.

    The salmon dip was alright not to die for but..... the crab cake and that sauce were! The scallops were cooked to perfection. The gentleman playing the guitar set the mood. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

    We had reservations and our table was ready for us upon arrival to the restaurant! The restaurant was very busy and like everywhere else, the staff needed help, but they worked very hard to please everybody. We had a very good meal and good experience at 1885 Grill. I highly recommend this place

    Appetizers were good. Entrees took too long to arrive and we’re nothing special just okay. We were upstairs and the noise level from the bar was too much. Jennifer waited on us and she did a fine job!

    Extremely disappointed. I have eaten here many times since they opened for brunch. This is the one time that I have to complain and I normally don't do this. Our server was completely despondent. It took an hour and a half to get a picture of mimosas after we sat down and then when we got it it was hot. Don't know if I can blame that on the server, however we consistently told him what was going on and he kept making excuses. He also took our order and then brought me the wrong food. I'm not a complainer so I got up and went to the bathroom so my friend could tell him what was going on. Then they bring out the correct food, and it was completely wrong. I ordered the steak and eggs which I have eaten before and it was perfect several times. It was overcooked on one side and raw on the other. So between not getting our drinks and then when we got them completely hot, then getting the wrong food and then getting the right food and it be wrong, I don't think I'll be back for a while. And then we get our check and it's almost $100 because they didn't take anything off even though I didn't drink any of that and I barely touched my food after telling them what was wrong with it. I never expected this because I've always got superb service and food from this establishment. I'm just glad that my parents weren't able to show up. I would have been embarrassed by telling them how wonderful this place is. I don't know what was going on but I know they weren't that busy even though it was Labor Day weekend. Our server spent more time flirting with the two women sitting behind us then actually taking care of us

    The food was good. It was the second time I had the same server and I was less than impressed with his attentiveness. The rest of my table was also unimpressed with his lack of service and timeliness. Felt like we had to wait forever for him to check on us or complete a request.

    We chose 1885 for our daughter’s 30th birthday. The food, beverages, and service were all amazing. There was a particularly loud group at the table next to ours, but they left soon after we ordered our food. Once they were gone, the rest of the evening was exceptionally good. Thanks for a memorable birthday celebration!

    We showed up five minutes early for our reservation only for the hostess to tell us that they sat our table with two other guests on accident. She then explained it happened because “they just wanted cocktails.” We got stuck with a tiny two top table literally in front of the entrance right next to the host/hostess stand. Constantly crowded by people. The food was excellent so was our drinks. The ambiance is fine. The hostess was pretty incompetent and our server was average. She left us for long stretches with empty drinks/cocktails and I had to wait 10-12 minutes to pay. I know that isn’t a long time, but it’s too long to let a table go at a restaurant without checking in.
