We love their steakhouse dinner option -- your choice of three types of beef and then several types of accompaniments -- really good. We also particularly like their 6 for 6 special in the bar area or front porch from 4:30 to 6PM -- certain drinks and appetizers are $6 each. While 4:30 is usually much too early for us,... More

We took our daughter, who is studying at nearby St. Lawrence, for a birthday dinner at the 1844 House. We started with the chef's complimentary amuse bouche of small potato fritters and a nice bread and crisps basket with homemade butter. My daughter had always wanted to try escargot, so she ordered them and we also had the pomme frittes.... More

We gathered to share a special evening celebrating birthdays. Cocktails first, then appetizers. The Special offered varies; always a superb dish. Though we were celebrating birthdays, we each made individual choice of deserts. The ambiance is wonderful, food is superb. The wait staff is excellent. Highly recommend 1844 House.

I was not eager to drive all the way to Potsdam for a dnner, but this was worth it. Its a charming interior, and the many rooms spread people out and made it quieter and more intimate than many places. There were several of us. We had the mussels, duck, fries...and I cannot remember what else, but everyone was very... More

1844 House is a charming chef owned restaurant. Chef Brian. Uses locally sourced products to create delicious meals. His wife Jenny is a trained pastry chef. This is a very popular restaurant with the local college community so I highly recommend reservation. Check their website for menu items and early dining.

Began with a Manhatten and proceed to review the menu. Many tasty items, but the special, Paella sound good. The seafood was fresh and delicious and went perfectly with a glass of chardonnay. Desert was spectacular, with many choices, I had the Creme Brule. Service was great and I will be back as often as I am in Potsdam.

This place is an excellent fine dining restaurant. Food was delicious from the appetizer to the dessert. Only thing I would change is the wine selection. This restaurant has a dozen or more wineries located with a 2 hr drive and they didn't have a single one. I would still go again and highly recommend.

We came to this restaurant while visiting family in the Canton, New York area the week between Christmas and New Year's and really enjoyed it. The restaurant is in a historic old farmhouse and spread between several rooms of the ground floor. It was beautifully decorated for Christmas and had a great atmosphere - very warm, cozy and inviting. The... More

Two people recommended this restaurant, so I had high expectations. I am happy to report it met the bar. I enjoyed a superb salad (I think it was called the 1844 salad) and ridiculously good butternut squash ravioli. Prices were fair, service was very good at the bar. Friendly welcoming host. Will definitely return with my husband if my daughter... More

My wife and I traveled the 1 1/2 hours on Thanksgiving Day to 1844 House because we knew we would not be disappointed. We were correct. The special dinner menu for the day day was right on.
