I'd like to begin with the positive. We arrived early, and were greeted promptly. We had cocktails at the bar, four to be exact and it was 40 dollars. My husband appreciated the local craft beer. The bartender was professional from his attire to his mannerism, Attentive and friendly. The host come to us at 915 and said, " we... More

My wife and I went here on cold a Saturday evening. It was crowded, but we got a table for two without a reservation. Everything we had was exceptional. My wife and I have lived 7 years in Europe (England, Belgium, and Germany) and we really miss the high-quality, fresh food compared to most American restaurants. We found it at... More

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.
