About our Restaurant
1911 was founded by the same team that brought Red Sky Tapas & Bar to Marietta in May of 2008, two childhood friends, Brian Kennington and Terry Kirby.
We have set out to provide handcrafted breakfast and lunch in a fast, convenient and invitingly rustic environment.
The restaurant's name is an ode to our military and first responders. The Colt 1911 was the standard-issue sidearm for the United States Armed Forces from 1911 until 1985. The "911" in the name is a nod to our police, fire and emergency medical teams who respond to 911 calls. The outside design of an old country store is a fitting tie-in to handcrafted buttermilk biscuits reminiscent of what one could have enjoyed back in 1911.
1911 will be working with our local veterans and first responders on an on going basis to support our local community and take care of those who take care of us.
