Wonderful find. Chicken Picard is a favorite of mine, but this was one off the best! Plus fresh green beans. What a delight find.

You hear about these experiences happening to other people, but we had the misfortune of having the absolute WORST dining experience at Circa 1800. From the time we placed our drink orders, 28 minutes later our waitress comes and announces that they are completely out of all tequila. After 20 more minutes, I had to flag her down and place...

On our drive from NYC to Naples, riding I-95, we got off at the Fayetteville exit. Not wanting " fast food" we followed the sign that said < downtown. With a Currier and Ives town minus snow we came across Circa 1800. We sat at the bar with Tony. We thought we were at Cheers. Drinks were great, Tony was... More

Great concept, mediocre execution......starting with the Bloody Mary Bar....$8.00 for what I wonder. A bunch of ingredients sitting on the end of the bar...very salty, bitter and had to make it myself. We had the the frittata and the Bananas Foster Panckes........the frittata was flat and flavor deficient, the pancakes dry, with a shortage of syrup and whipped cream. The... More

Anniversary dinner w my wife and we had the chicken picatta and the shrimp and grits. Chicken was cooked perfectly and the orzo was creamy and well seasoned, for the picatta. The shrimp for the shrimp and grits were perfectly cooked and though the grits could have used some salt, the dish was great. Came with a side of maple... More

This has to be the most quaint and out of the way restaurant ever!. The shrimp and grits are to die for! The ambience is great and this is a wonderful place for lunch or dinner. You simply cannot go wrong with this establishment.

Were in town to visit brother and his family and happened across this place....I was skeptical at first due to the size of our party (8) and the fact that we had hungry kids. Circa 1800 didn't disappoint. They accommodated our every need starting with seating us outside as the interior of this place is pretty cramped. I had the... More

We were staying out by I-95 and wanted to try something other than a chain. We checked on Tripadvisor and decided to "take a chance" on this location. The GPS got us downtown in a jiffy. Seated promptly. Greeted and had our drinks in less than 2 minutes. Wife's crab cakes were delightful as was the accompanying starches. My filet... More

We found this restaurant via Hampton Inn's suggestion. We had a great meal. The crab dip and caprese appetizers were full of flavor and absolutely delicious. The beef tips were tender and done just right. Two thumbs up for a memorable meal...and amazing hospitality!
