    It’s a beautiful venue/restaurant/meeting venue! I loved it but it’s quite cold if you’re in the path of the door always opening to the outside. When it’s a little warmer it will be perfect!!

    I love the ambience! 1899 is a really fun place and full of surprises - especially the golf simulators and private areas, like the Speakeasy. How cool. I won't spoil it for others...you need to go see it. And the food was amazing. Oh my...the Lemon Pepper Wings, Calamari, and Truffle fries were my favs. Everyone said their entrees were really good. The drinks were great, too. And to top it all off... Dylan (the Director of Music) was kind enough to give our group a tour, and that was an extra special treat! And we had a wonderful waitress, too. Great hospitality all-the-way-around. We all had a wonderful time and I'm sure everyone will be back - for business and/or pleasure, and to enjoy some of the live music! I highly recommend everyone support this establishment so that it stays around for a LONG time!

    They charged for a cover charge for each person to come in although this was not mentioned when booking the reservation. The band was playing so loud that you were unable to have a conversation at your table. The food was extremely bland and the waiter disappeared. Waited 30min to get the check. Had to ask someone to find him. Then although on 2 people were in my party we were billed for a “large party” fee. When I inquired as to why we were billed this, the waiter said it’s charged whenever there is a band or “special event”.

    I had a party of 9. Seven of us had never been before. I ordered the Shrimp & Grits. As I placed my order I ask the waitress Megan if I were able to have it without cheese? She said she would have to ask if that was possible. Another waiter stated the grits are made in one large amount not separate and they cheese. Two of my other guest got it and was please. I received mine and ask if I could order something else? Megan said, Absolutely, took my plate away. Some young lady later came out stood next to me in pants and a hoodie a dirty hoodie! I’m assuming food was on it and RUDELY stated. I’m not sure why you didn’t like the shrimp & grits because it didn’t have cheese in it. I made them. I immediately ask her WHO ARE YOU? This has been taken care of? This is when she tells me she is the HEAD COOK/ Kitchen Supervisor. I explained to her I wasn’t minimizing her craft I want something different. She rudely walked away. First of all she should have approached our table by introducing herself and maybe an apron on of some sort. This was a major turn off for us all. The deliverance was HORRIBLE and uncalled for because the matter was handled.

    The atmosphere was nice and relaxing. We came for the brunch and Live Music, the guitarist was great would defi be come back to hear him play. Only hiccup was the food came out lukewarm. Their kitchen is so far from the tables I believe that the food was cooling off on the way to our table.

    Our server was very nice...however, the menu could use some improvement. The buffalo chicken dip tasted like something that was thawed out in the microwave. My burger was a little to sloppy due to the sauce. The only high point of my meal was my drink.

    Management needs to work on customer service and it needs to be explained to the customers upon order the drink policy. I will say this, make sure your alcoholic beverage is something you like bcuz they will not exchange your drink for something else and you still have to pay for it even if you don’t like it.

    Waitress was attentive and considerate of issues my dinner. The burger I ordered was burnt and charred on one side and the cook tried to hide it by covering it with the bun (picture taken). Every bite was full of burnt charred meat. I upgraded my fried to truffle fried and they was full of salt. I returned my order and was not charged. Drink service was slow. Only one bartender in service but she did her best with the volume of orders. Better management is needed, this is my 2nd time at 1899.

    We had brunch. Ordered the Mimosa kit, it was great for the cost. My friend and I almost finished the bottle. I ordered the Smoked Salmon Benedict, it was tasty but one of my eggs was almost well done. 😕. My friend ordered the Belgium Waffle and was OK. I ordered a Ceasar salad togo with salmon and the salmon was extremely salty and a waste of $. Not too happy about it. I will say, there was a large party there at the time. We had reservations and the place was not packed. I'm willing to give the lunch/dinner a chance to see if that is better.

    I love 1899, I've been here quite a few times. Last night was the best and the worst of times. The band was amazing! I loved Hubb's Groove and I hope they become regulars there. I will come every single time. The service was very good, we had a new server (Amber F) who did her best to take care of us. She was so pleasant, knowledgeable and so welcoming. The problem was the food and the drinks. We ordered blueberry lemonade that didn't taste like blueberries or lemonade, it even came with a lime so we thought we had the wrong drinks. It wasn't a bad drink, it just doesn't taste like it is described and there is some kind of soda in it even though the menu doesn't state that. As for the food, we ordered the pretzel and chips and queso as appetizers, we then ordered the burger and chicken sandwich for the dinner. The appetizers never came at all. The burger was overcooked and cold which is such a strange combo. And the brioche bun on both sandwiches was rock hard, like it had been left in an oven too long. The server has my burger remade on the fly and it was still overcooked but not as badly as the first time so we just kept it. They were really crowded so I understand how these things happen. Our server was great and you could tell that every other worker was really working hard. I will definitely be back, I'm sure the kinks will get worked out.

    I arrived at 7:10 for my reservation and was seated. I wasn’t greeted by a server for at other 10 minutes and didn’t receive water for another 5 minutes. Our party ordered lemon drops and half had a sugar rim, the other half didn’t have sugar rims. The fall sangria which was supposed to have apple cider and cinnamon syrup, literally just tasted like wine and lemon juice. There was more ice than drink and a giant awkward orange slice in the glass. We had a party of seven and we’d only gotten two menus to share. Our server disappeared for another 15 minutes. The last member of our party arrived at 8:10 and ordered food about 10 minutes after the rest of the party, but their plate of wings came out first…at 8:40. The wings were undercooked and didn’t have the rub requested. By 8:50 we still had no food and no one refilled our water at any point during service. The band was playing so loudly I could barely hear the person next to me. At 8:55 we decided to leave and go somewhere else as we never received any of our food. The server printed our check, attempting to charge us for all of the food we never received. When asked why we’re being charged, the server said, “the food is coming out right now, it can’t be cancelled”. When I mentioned it’s been two hours and we haven’t received any food, she argued that we had only been waiting an hour for food. Which is still egregious and I told her we wouldn’t be paying for food we didn’t eat. In the 10 minutes it took her to get a manager and reprint our check, no food came as she claimed it would. The second check only had the drinks and the wings, but the drinks were outrageously priced and we were charged separately for the alcohol and then the drink, which I’ve never seen anywhere, even in fancier places. All in all I will never return to 1899 Golf, the service was terrible, the venue was crowded and unpleasant, the drinks weren’t mixed well, and the food took entirely too long. I will never recommend it.

    The bartender, Daja was very personable and kind. Our waitress Amber, was pleasant, professional and attentive. A young man who helped serve was extremely loud and genuinely clumsy. The food was reasonably priced. I enjoyed my omelette but the potatoes were cold and genuinely weren't good. Otherwise our experience was nice.

    Great place, great service, but this new menu is sparse and uninspired. We came because of the beautiful dishes we saw on their Instagram page made by their creative chef. We were very disappointed to know that the chef was gone and all the interesting dishes as well. I hope they increase the amount of choices available.

    The chicken sandwich was gross. It was full of grease that soaked the bun and the plate. The only thing was good were the fries. The chicken had absolutely no taste. The man who greeted us at the door was very nice. Our server was nice also. Overall the place looks great but the food was disappointing

    Great atmosphere and even greater service by all the staff! However, the entrees were inedible. It was very obvious that the meals were not prepared fresh— they were cooked previously and then reheated upon ordering. Because of that, everything was extremely dry. The only good food we ate was the charcuterie board— minus the grapes that had mold on them. The prices were very high for the quality of food served. Overall, we were very disappointed in our experience here. Great service, bad food. Would probably only return for drinks only.

    We found a sticker from the vegetables in my husband's soup so the meal was comped. Management was very apologetic and our waitress was nice. Aside from that snafu we stayed for the rest of our meal and I have to be honest that I wasnt impressed. The cocktails were a bit overpriced. The ambiance was nice and the live band was good. I would not make a return visit.
