We ate at the chefs table and watched Brandon cooking on the hearth. It was amazing. The duck was to die for. I would have licked the bread pudding dish clean if I could! Yummmmmm

Must say the appetizer could have been enough to eat for the main course. Marcel our waiter told us what to expect & was right on. He was extremely courteous & is an asset to your establishment. Everything was cooked to perfection & was delicious, the filet minion was perfectly done almost did not need a knife. & the birthday candle on the bread pudding made my wifes day. I highly recomend this for anyones dining expieriance.

We had reservations for 7pm and they had a limited menu maybe 5-7 entrees which was fine. However, I went to order and they were out of several things including the entree that I planned to order, the waitress said they had just sold the last one. The point of having a limited menu is to have the food available and not run out at 7pm. Also, service was terrible, waitress maybe came to the table twice. We poured our own wine, etc. We won’t be back. Several better places to eat locally so I wouldn’t waste your time going to this place!

Service was great - Marcel was professional and knowledgeable of the menu and specialty items. Food did not disappoint - this was our third visit in the last year. A bit of a drive for us but worth the trip north into the woods to get away from the city.

Incredible dining experience. I ordered a grilled Cesar salad and a petite filet and both were excellent. 1796 has a large wine list as well as craft cocktails, so there is something for everyone.

We went and spent the weekend for my wife's birthday. My father in law and I both had ribeyes and my wife had the filet . These steaks were amazing they just melted in your mouth. Mother in law had the shrimp and grits which she said was one of the best meals she has ever eaten

Came here for my best friends birthday. The staff was incredibly friendly and the food was out of this world good. We had the crab and corn cakes, chicken chicharrones, heirloom tomato salad, a filet and a ribeye and the bread pudding. Every bite was perfect. Best steaks we’ve ever had!

Enjoyed brunch here after a tour of the Myrtles. It is a small menu but even our picky eaters found something. It was nice to be able to order from lunch or brunch menu on Sunday. We all enjoyed the meal and our service was fantastic. Great coffee too!

Overpriced for quality of food. Service was very slow but may have been because it was a holiday. Food was fresh but 14.00 for a hamburger that was just a regular hamburger and fries that were not fresh is a little pricey. Will try again for dinner soon. May have just been an off day for them. Restaurant is beautiful and clean. Staff friendly and courteous. Would not recommend if you have a seafood allergy because they do not make any effort to accomodate you as far as fried foods go.

Probably the best meal I've had in a restaurant in a long, long time. Everything was fresh and flavorful, the service was excellent and the setting was totally unique.

Our server was Kevonte and he was great! He was friendly and attentive and made great recommendations. And the entire staff was wearing their masks, thank you for having them do that.

Our dinner was amazing, we had the Hearth burger and the pork tenderloin. Both were delicious and flavorful. Server was very attentive.
Don’t skip on desserts, the bread pudding, sorbet and cherry chocolate ice cream are to die for.

This is my fourth time eating out at 1796 over the last month. I have ordered the chicken sandwich twice, and received two completely different sandwiches. The first time, a nice drizzle of the hot sauce, second time, it was completely drenched and was really messy and hard to eat, the bun fell apart, which is hard to do when it's a pretzel bun. I have also ordered a side salad twice, again two completely different salads. First time, nice spring mix with tomatoes, Parmesan cheese and red onions, next time all romaine with only tomatoes. I want the restaurant to succeed, but need consistency in the food. Thanks for listening.

Can't beat the food and atmosphere at Restaurant 1796!! It's been beautifully built blending the new with the rustic feel. We have been several times and the menu is always new and fun....the food is outstanding! Love how they put a fun spin on the classic dishes...the cornbread and greens with bacon jam is a MUST try! It's the perfect setting for a special occasion too....Sunday brunch with friends, date night, birthday dinner...
