    From the bar to the dinner, everything was top notch. We arrived early and had a couple of drinks while we waited, we were notified when our table was ready. We had a cute and quirky waiter who complimented our choices for appetizers and entrees. We enjoyed the rabbit livers and lamb meatballs for the appetizers, both very good. We chose the fried rabbit and duck for the main course. The rabbit was fried perfectly and was extremely tender, the duck was cooked perfectly and moist and flavorful. We truly enjoyed it and will be back.

    Very cozy. Sit at the bar near the wood oven grill on a cold night. This restaurant is really good and combined with the Myrtles haunted mansion, it’s a great couples getaway.

    We miss calculated our drive time from New Orleans and they changed our reservation time. We came at 1:30 and they closed at 2. They did not rush us at all and it was a very enjoyable and delightful experience. The food was delicious and the staff was wonderful.

    We decided to try out this restaurant for New Year’s Eve and we were not disappointed! Amy took good care of us. We started out with many small plates but our faves were the cauliflower, ribs, mac-n-cheese, and truffle fries. The corn bread was standard fare. Entree faves were the gnocchi, short ribs, and red fish. We also ordered shrimp and grits, the burger, and a filet — all were exceptional. The desserts though, LORD.HAVE.MERCY!! Bread pudding, s’mores brownie, and apple turnover made me question coming back for dessert only. Don’t leave without dessert!!! Craft cocktails were also on point. I don’t have a bad thing to say. Take the trip and visit this place. You won’t be sorry.

    Went to celebrate our anniversary, everything was lovely, but once a party of 10 showed up right next to us, it got very loud and obnoxious. We just wanted a quiet dinner together, not really wanted to sit next to a loud party. We will definitely be going back, because there won’t always be a party there, but it would have been nice to move them to another spot away from other diners who may have also wanted a quiet dinner.

    My daughter and I stayed a couple of nights at the bed & breakfast next door and ate at 1796 both nights. The first night's fried rabbit with greens and rice was one of the best meals either of us has ever had. The next night I had redfish and she had ribs. Again, both were very, very good, but neither topped the rabbit.

    We drove in from Baton Rouge to celebrate our anniversary and were very happy we did!. The atmosphere is very rustic,chic and beautiful. The service was fantastic. We stuck to small plates on the brunch menu and shared with our friends.We had the rabbit livers, excellent, the ribs as I love bama white sauce,...great dish, mac n cheese, our friends said best they have had, cornbread, delicious..fried okra, loved it and the smoked tuna dip was awesome! Everything was top notch and it was nice to get out of Baton Rouge, for this wonderful experience.

    PLEASE start serving sides with serving utensils. I’ve been asking for this for over a year. We are local and come here a lot! We enjoy it very much but none of the sides are ever served with a spoon. People don’t want to share food and double dip with our forks were eating off of…….

    As usual, the food and service was excellent. This was our first time to dine there as early as we did (5 :45 PM), so we were not expecting crowd and noise level. However, it appeared that everyone was enjoying themselves, so I cannot really fault the restaurant for that.
