I visited here for lunch yesterday to celebrate my coworker's birthday. This was her choice, and I wasn't mad about it! I had never visited before and was glad to have an excuse to give it a try.1892 fills a kind of interesting niche in Huntsville. It's definitely nicer/fancier and more expensive than more family-style restaurants like close by Melt or Jack Brown's in downtown Huntsville, but it's not as fancy as super upscale places like the Bottle or Purveyor. The menu focuses on farm to table meals and has a fairly large amount of creative options for vegetarians and vegans.The interior of the restaurant was larger than I thought it would be. There are two large main rooms and a nice bar. Some of the walls have some chips/scuff marks so the place is showing its age a bit, but the atmosphere was still warm and comfortable.I have heard great things about their burger for YEARS, so I decided I'd try that. Two of my coworkers split the burger and fries and each got side Caesar salads, and my final coworker ordered the chicken pot pie. I asked for a sweet tea to drink, which was a mistake; I was offered my choice of simple syrup or sweetener to mix in myself. I personally really only think sweet tea is good when the sweetener is added while the tea is brewing, so that was kind of a disappointment.That aside, though, I wasn't mislead on the burger at all. It was really good! Since it's made with house ground beef, you can choose the degree you want it cooked; I opted for medium well. The medium thickness patty was super, super juicy and had a great beefy flavor. The bun stood up remarkably well to the juiciness of the patty, the melted cheese, AND the balsamic aioli I smeared over every square inch, which was impressive! It had nice crispy outer edges and a soft pillowy center. The aioli was deliciously creamy with a faint, pleasant sourness. Really great burger! The fries were pretty good, but not quite as impressive; ideally, I think I'd have liked them a bit saltier, but they were cooked nicely and paired well with my meal. I'd happily eat them again.Coworkers' burger wasn't quite cooked to their liking (a little less done that they asked for), but they were happy overall. The salads looked fresh and delicious. The person who got the pot pie said the filling was delicious, though the crust on top was almost more like a cracker and she wished there had been more of it.Our server was very nice and did his best. They stayed very on top of refills and got our checks out quickly when we asked. However, I think they only had maybe 2 servers for the whole restaurant and they were about half-full. The kitchen must've been slow or understaffed, too, because it took a pretty long time for our food to come out. All told, I think lunch took almost an hour and a half. We hadn't intended to go that long, though it wasn't a huge deal necessarily. Just something to keep in mind if you're looking to go in the near future.All told, I'd definitely be down to revisit. I'd grab a burger again, easily, and I've also been told their brunch rules! Would love to try that. If you're looking for a middle-range, comfortable spot for a low key date night or celebration, this is a good option to consider, in my opinion.
We were there twice once for lunch and then for dinner. The food for lunch was very good. Then we went for dinner and my salmon was amazing my husband's shrimp dinner was equally as good!! This will be one of our must visit restaurants every year on our way south.
Great dining experience for a laid back Sunday brunch with the family. Wonderful staff and extensive menu but not overwhelming. Everyone enjoyed their food and decided that this would become part of our Sunday rotation!
