    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.

    Nice atmosphere. Decor, layout etc. Service/host staff is nice but a bit awkward in interaction moments. Food quality was not up to par with $$ chicken was overcooked on outside with little meat on inside. Drinks were ok.

    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.

    I brought my son out to celebrate his first job. We had such an amazing time. The place was filled with positive energy, loved the ambiance. We had the crispy shrimp as an appetizer. Yum so delicious. My son had the featured special shrimp kabobs. He enjoyed every bit. Can’t wait to come back and play golf on those amazing simulators.

    This was our first time eating at 1899. My sisters and I enjoyed the calamari, the shrimp and grits the fried chicken sandwich (next time coleslaw on the side) and the short ribs and Gorgonzola flatbread. All were tasty. The sangria was delicious. The  pomegranate and blueberry mimosa’s were honestly just OK.

    Sunday brunch - not busy at 10AM. Prompt service with an unfortunate mistake that ruined the morning for a member of my party. Hopefully will improve in the future.

    Service was great. Cocktails were fantastic. The food - meh. Nothing special about it and not a lot of flavor. The ahi-tuna was overly marinated in a soy sauce and very salty. The restaurant itself is beautiful. Very high-end and trendy looking design. I feel like they have a bit of an identity complex though - are you going to be a high end restaurant or a want to be Top Golf? For a Saturday night it was pretty dead and I think the game theme will deter guests. I hope they figure out what they want to be which will determine the audience they attract.

    My daughter and I both had the crab Benedict. Both of us had 1 egg with no yolk. What’s a Benedict without a beautiful runny yolk…I would have let my server know, but I took half of my Benedict home. The half with no yolk. Then my daughter let us know her’s was missing a yolk too. The service and ambiance are great.

    We probably wouldn’t have gone if we had realized it had only been open for two days! That said, the food we got was tasty ( the onion soup was DELICIOUS) but there are clearly issues in the serving/kitchen area that need to be resolved. Three of us got our dinners and one did not, even after an hour wait. They did offer a complimentary appetizer but there seemed to be a lot of miscommunication going on. I’m sure they will iron out the opening jitters over time but we would definitely give it another try. The place itself is very well done, the golf is fun and golf staff very attentive and helpful. An asset in Shaker that I hope people will try.

    Ambiance and service were wonderful. There was a live band that were great. The restaurant food was a miss, we ordered 4 different dishes, and every one of them were not done well, weird flavor combinations, under seasoned, the potato risotto was wayyy over seasoned with rosemary and did not have a pleasant mouth feel. The food in the bays is probably pretty good, and we’ll come back to try that because we loved the feel of the space.

    Decor and ambiance felt upscale and classy. Menu should try to include some lower priced options. Dining service was a bit lacking. One person at our table waited 10 minutes to get her food after everyone else. Crafted cocktails were outstanding. I think once they iron out issues with service and production it will be great.

    The 1899 Social Club offers a unique blend of dining, gaming, and imbibing, making it an ideal spot for both a delicious meal and a fun night out with friends. Spread across a spacious area that boasts 9 golf bays, 2 full bars, and multiple lounges, the wait staff has their work cut out for them - but they deliver with aplomb. Our server, James, offered impeccable guidance as we explored the innovative and adventurous menu, which features options for brunch, lunch, and bar fare. Part gastropub, part specialty beer house, and part golf simulator gaming venue, the 1899 Social Club is still refining its operating model and menu elements, but we were pleasantly surprised by our initial experience. Whether you're looking for a destination dinner or a night of revelry, this establishment has something for everyone.

    I would not recommend 1899 for the food. All four of us did not like our meal and found that the food was wayyy over priced. The craft cocktails however, were delicious and creative. Skip the food and just go for the drinks and ambience.

    This is a fun place. We went on a Friday night for our first time at this restaurant. Walked into a fun, energetic atmosphere. Feels like an upscale sports bar. So I was expecting sports bar food. Wrong! The menu is creative and the food is fantastic! House made potato chips with caviar? Yes please! They will even crreate a new cocktail just for you - delicious! We will definitely be back soon.
