Restaurant 1796

Home is where the hearth is...

Centered around a 10' wood-fired hearth, Restaurant 1796 prides itself on fresh Southern ingredients finished to perfection over the fire with a shared experience reminiscent of a family holiday gathering.

If you haven't been to Restaurant 1796 yet, you're in for a unique treat. In a reverent nod to the history of the property, most of our dishes have either passed through or somehow been touched by the hearth. Guests are encouraged to choose individual main proteins and then fill their table with small plates and shareables handcrafted from local, market fresh produce. We find the whole experience makes for engaging conversation and brings a relaxed atmosphere to fine dining, with enthusiastic waitstaff, an enviable wine list and mouthwatering cocktails and desserts.

Join us on Wednesdays for 1/2 off glasses of wine all night long. Thursdays, we offer our Steak Night Special, 16oz ribeye for $24.99. 

Every Wednesday and Thursday, email us to make your special reservations for our Chef's Tasting Menu, five courses off our current seasonal menu for $50.00/guest. Email [email protected] to make those special reservations!
