Atmosphere is pleasant, wait staff is nice not snobby, menu is full of wonderful items and our dinner was delish. We sampled some wine and it was all smooth and full. Can't wait to return!

We visited 1892 for our 4th anniversary. We have both been to restaurants from California to North Carolina. 1892 was the best rated restaurant in huntsville, AL. We both now know why it has the ratings it received. The atmosphere was very relaxing and the food was as good if not better than any restaurant that we have ever visited... More

I looked at the menu on line before visiting. So I was looking forward to a great dining experience. The service was great. But I was disappointed with the taste of the food. I had the expresso brisket. There so much expresso that I could not taste the brisket. A couple of other guests in my party commented the food... More

My wife suggested 1892 East as a last second place on a random Saturday night in September. The food was phenomenal and features locally procured ingredients. They also feature an excellent selection of draft beers and wines. However, our server, Ben, was the highlight of the evening. Ben's work ethic is through the roof and we were thoroughly impressed with... More

I have no idea why this place wasn't packed, but the brunch would have been worth standing in line for. The short ribs, egg, and biscuit special melted in my mouth. The service was excellent - our server, Lindy, was lovely and several staff members just stopped by to make sure we were enjoying our meal. Great French Press coffee... More

We had a party of five and the waiter did a great job, and was also able to easily accommodate the need for separate checks. The food was amazing. I had the brie and apples salad, which was a perfect starter size. But the show stopper was my main dish salmon with risotto. Really AMAZING. I was practically licking the... More

This small restaurant is really quite sophisticated in that they try hard to create dishes using local ingredients. I love the way they use Alabama favorites in different ways. Try the catfish or trout-well cooked. They don't overlook fish, which is a sure way to destroy the flavor. Nice service, too.

1892 East has it all, the atmosphere, the service, and especially the food. We arrived on time for our reservation and were quickly greeted and then seated. When the air-conditioning proved to be a bit much for one of the members in our party the quickly moved us to a more comfortable table. Trish was our server and she was... More

Cheeseburger and fries legendary and recommended by locals. It did not disappoint. I was in a party of six, and our waiter did a great job of organizing our orders, payment, etc. There was a leak in the ceiling that dripped pretty big on two of us in the party, so tables had to be moved. The floor is either... More

Our group of four recently met at the 1892 East for a business lunch. We were promptly seated, and the service was great. After inquiring about the origin of the catfish on the catfish sandwich and learning the catfish was from Mississippi, I did order the beer-battered catfish sandwich which was the special of the day. The food arrived quickly.... More
