1852 on Austin

Set in an historic building in Jefferson, Texas, 1852 On Austin features an incredible brunch lunch and dinner menu with live music on their sound stage most Friday, Saturday evenings and select Sundays.

According to their website, musician friends Dave Echols met Mickey Morrison in 1979 and the two became friends over their passion for music and love of guitars. The idea for a joint venture began in 2016 and came to life when they found the perfect venue in February 2021, and purchased the beautiful Planters Bank & Mercantile building, built in 1852 in downtown Jefferson. Since then, the building has been transformed into a beautiful restaurant and music venue in the old “dinner club” tradition.
