We took our grand niece here to celebrate her graduation. It was a lovely dinner with the exception of the service being slow. Dinner was over three hours long and there was a long wait time between courses. We also had to wait past our reservation time for our table. The food was very good - but my fish was... More

My mother and I arrived after 8 pm Friday night to a packed house. We added our name to the list, found a seat at the bar to enjoy a ginger beer and were called to our table about 20 minutes later. Our server Kathryn was a doll-- efficient, polite, knowledgable. She brought us Asian inspired canapé and green tea... More

We visited in February while visiting our daughter at St. Laurence. We had early dinner reservations so we could make the hockey game. After several delious cocktails our meal was expertly served. Delicious! I recommend this resturant.

Had a great dinner here with friends. The food was delicious as always. The tomato bisque with parmesan crisp and pesto was very good, and the special od the night was outstanding! It was halibut with butter beans and kale, and it was one of the best things I have eaten in a long time. I am not giving 5... More

Probably the best restaurant in the Posdam area. Good food and presentation. The quantity is skimpy when I had lamb. We would return but the seats were very uncomfortable for my wife's bad back.

The 1844 House is a place to go when you want to spend the evening with friends or someone special, enjoying a relaxed multi-course dinner of exquisitely prepared food. It is more than a restaurant, it is an experience. Two things stand out about this restaurant: the quality of the food and the relaxed, leisurely pace of the dining experience.... More

The food was outstanding, the service attentive, the wines and desserts were unparallelled. Not a restaurant you would expect to find in the great north of rural New York.

1844 House has a strong reputation, and while I have never had a bad meal there, I have never been overwhelmed as some have been. Portions are small and over-priced, and seating tends to be cramped, since their dining room is the living room of an old house. Ambiance was fine, and the meal was good, but I fail to... More
