REVIEW: 1910 Public House, Lilburn, Gwinnett
It’s amazing to me the great restaurants that just seem to fall right into our lap. 1910 Public House was one of those places that we had not intended on going to, yet we find ourselves visiting.
It was a beautiful Sunday afternoon and we found ourselves in old town Lilburn. If you haven’t made in there, it’s a great little section of town with an absolutely awesome park, bike trails and greenway. It makes for a fun outing and 1910 Public House is within an easy walk of the park.
We were early for dinner so we were seated right away and our server arrived quickly to take our drink orders. We looked at the menu and found most menu items priced from the high teens to the mid 20s. They also have small plates which are less but we were concerned that we’d still be hungry after eating. I chose the Chicken Pot Pie and Melanie went with the Vegetable Plate.
1910 Public House is a great casual place and we both loved the décor of the restaurant. It’s got a really super vibe and the staff was very welcome and was able to answer any question we had. There’s another section to the right, through an awesome looking barn door, that is the growler area where they have 24 craft beers on tap. These guys are into growlers! There’s a bar area but there’s also a very nice comfortable seating area for enjoying conversation with your friends.
Just before the meal arrived, our server brought me a small bowl. She told me that the Chicken Pot Pie would be so hot that it’s advised to dip some out into the bowl and it’ll cool faster. I let her know that I LOVE HOT FOOD and I probably wouldn’t be needing that bowl. As I write this post, my tongue is still recovering from the burn, but I enjoyed every minute of it.
1910 Public House pays special attention to the presentation of the meal. We love the dishes and the layout of the Vegetable Plate. Our server was OH SO RIGHT because I couldn’t believe how hot the Chicken Pot Pie was, not to mention how large it appeared. I was sure I would never finish it, but I found myself worthy of the task.
Melanie really enjoyed her Vegetable Plate. The asparagus was cooked to perfection, something that we continue to find a rarity when we’ve tried this at pother places. The roasted brussel sprouts we so delicious. The had a wonderful flavor from the grill and were soft and chewy. When Melanie ordered the Mac & Cheese, our server suggested the truffle variety and it did not disappoint. It was very rich and tasty, in fact to just call it Mac & Cheese diminishes it.
I couldn’t believe it when our server asked us about dessert and I was more shocked when Melanie said she was interested. Upon seeing the dessert menu, all fear was cast aside and we chose to share the Chocolate Peanut Butter Mousse Cake. We didn’t even finish half and took the rest in a box. To die for – really, it’s a must-have.
Our time at 1910 Public House could not have been more enjoyable. Great food, fantastic service in a casual, trendy environment combined to make a really great meal. I don’t care what area of town you live in, you need to make your way out to 1910 Public House and enjoy this! Guten appetit!
