1801 Grille embodies the culture and character of the University of South Carolina and the Columbia, SC region with tavern-style, farm-to-table cuisine and rich southern hospitality.
1801 Grille is Columbia’s newest dining destination with a tavern-inspired menu that swings from comforting to playful and an ambiance that exudes a rustic, historic charm. This inviting neighborhood meeting place, located on the edge of the University of South Carolina’s campus and just steps from Colonial Life Arena, offers a lively spot for friends, colleagues, sports fans, college students and families to enjoy a delicious dinner, celebrate a special event or catch up on the latest sports events while sipping on a local brew or great glass of wine.
Executive Chef Jason Bruner and his culinary team have created a mouth-watering menu of southern-inspired dishes using only the freshest ingredients which are sourced locally whenever possible. Guests can select from grilled burgers and sandwiches, house made pizzas, fresh seafood and loads of shareables such as Pub Chips, Sweet & Smoky Calamari, “Sloppy” Sliders and much more. The cozy and comfortable interior comes from the restaurant’s brick walls, large mahogany tables, metal chandeliers and garnet and black themed colors. USC fans will love the glimpse back into the school’s history with a hallway gallery of rare photos and memorabilia. Stop by our American tavern soon and experience one of Columbia’s newest and best dining experiences.
