The menu is fresh and affordable. 1850 features “twisted burgers” and salads at lunch, with more of a grill/steakhouse feel at night. We feature our signature “mountain food” options like quail and venison. The restaurant serves beer and wine that includes craft beers from all over the world, affordable wines by the glass and some really good California wines by the bottle. We hope 1850 will be a place where you feel welcome and comfortable. You don’t have to dress up, but you can.
