Diner Reviews
  • "1776 is a real find tucked away in a shopping center near the Midway theaters. Steak selection is excellent; service is very attentive and well versed on the menu; and the ambience is very nice."

  • "Steaks are very high-quality, and cooked perfectly to order. Lobster crab bisque is the best I've had anywhere."

  • "The service and appetizer were great (we had baked brie), but my steak was pretty lousy. I ordered the 'Barrel' done Medium Well - the outside was charred and the inside was bright pink. You could barely cut it with a knife without putting some decent force behind it. My husband had the Surf and Turf (Crap cakes and Sirloin) and his steak was able to be cut with a fork, no knife needed. Since my steak was apparently cut from the center part of a Ribeye, I was surprised that mine was so tough and I contribute it to not being cooked correctly. All and all, I doubt we'd be back."

  • "We have been dining at this restaurant for many years. We find that there are always options for everyone. It is known for it's quality of meat and never let's us down. It's become a "go to" place for our family. Don't be turned away by the fact that it is in a shopping center with a movie theater. Give it a try! You will return. And, they take reservations (which is rare at the beach)!"

  • "Definitely for meat eaters. Steaks were cooked precisely. Crab cakes always good. Sides and salads good. Too much food for desert. On the pricey side, but quality warrants cost. Service attentive and friendly. Restaurant itself could use a facelift."

  • "We each had steaks one filet and one barrel cut. Both were perfectly prepared. Service was excellent. This is a great place for a quiet family dinner or a romantic evening."

  • "Our server was horrible. I don't know if it was his first day or what was going on, but he definitely was clueless with what he was to be doing. I think he must have been overwhelmed or something because he just couldn't manage to get it together. He was lacking in just about everything that a server is required to do as a part of services. The other staff had to pick up the ball because he was constantly dropping it. It just didn't seem like we were of any importance to him that evening. On a better note, the hostess was lovely! She was most accommodating and wonderful! The food was good and especially the salads so, thank you to the chefs!"

  • "Our service was spot on. The entrees ordered were as advertised. Its a steakhouse so its a tad pricey for a beach community but its consistently good and located next to the multiplex movie theater between Rehoboth and Lewes."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "Despite a suspect location and dubious interior decoration the place is on the higher end of the offerings in and around Lewes. The beer list is better than the wine list, though the servers have varying levels of understanding. Appetizers run the gamut from delicious (black ravioli) to ok baked escargot), to inventive (scallop chips). Entrees that circle around steak are among the better options and preparation is more often than not as requested. There's a clear bent towards French preparation, with varying success, but whatever you order, the spinach is worth adding. Deserts aren't exactly an afterthought, but seem to have gotten less attention than everything else."

  • "We ate there to see Bryan Clark perform. But we truly enjoyed the meal. We had not eaten there before but will definitely include it as a must stop for dinner during future trips to Rehoboth Beach."

  • "The food and service were top notch.!!!!!!!! They had an entertainer / singer that night ..he was very good. The crowd tends to lean to the retired . The atmosphere could use an upgrade. Maybe if they did that they would attract a more diverse group of people."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "The service was great as usual. The steaks were a little disappointing. They were good but not as good as previous visits. Three at our table had the porterhouse and their comments were "not as good as they remembered". Good wine selection."

  • "Excellent meal. Restaurant easy to get to with plenty of parking. Take reservations so great for a busy beach weekend."

  • "I took my husband to dinner here for Fathers Day and the food and service was amazing! On reservation I requested a bottle of Moscato to be present and it was. We were seated immediately and our waiter checked on us through out dinner. 1776 has exceptional customer service!! I was just as pleased this time as my first visit."

  • "We have started to go back to 1776 for the last two years and have been extremely satisfied. Best service at the beach. The steaks are perfectly cooked tender and juicy and for non-weak lovers excellent other choices. Also they know how to make a drink! Susan and I both had the prime rib - perfect. Also moderately priced. Jee - whats wrong with this... Nothing"

  • "1776 Steak - Filet Mignon with Asparagas served over redskinned mashed potatoes was a perfect choice. Crab cakes were not good at all. Waiter left us sitting there with only one other table to wait on without even giving us bread & butter. Escargot was served with only 2 rolls that you expect to get at Denny's, lucky that he did not bring the 2 orders that we did order because they were not good. Waiter never came back to the table to ask if the food was acceptable or give us a refill on our ice tea or soda. "

  • "Had a wonderful meal and found a new wine that we loved - recommended by our waiter, Tim. Both the barrel steak and filet mignon were absolutely delicious. "

  • "We have driven by for many years and read many great reviews. We finally went and were very happy with our choice. Wonderful steaks in a classic atmosphere. Andrea was a wonderful server - full of all sorts of helpful information. Attentive but never intrusive. We also loved the live music - jazz flute and piano go great with classic steak. "

  • "my grandparents and parents took my sister and me to 1776 for my 13th birthday. we had a great time. our waiter Tim was friendly and helpful with suggestions. the filet was cooked perfectly. we had a table away from others and sunday night was a very uncrowded time to do so it felt like we had a private room. my dad loved the black ravioli, and my mom loved her steak. the baked potato was huge and the fries were crispy and tasty."

  • "If you're around the Delaware beaches and you want steak....1776 is the place to go. Period. Great food, great service, quite and nice bar area if you so choose."
    Dined on 4/7/2014
  • "We tried several of the steak dishes. The meat was the highest quality and prepared to perfection. I am fairly picky about beef and tend not to order it unless it is an exceptional restaurant. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants a perfect steak accompanied by great salads and sides. We also found the cocktails we sampled to be excellent and with a generous pour including additional martini kept cold in a vial on a bed of ice. The service was spot on and timed as perfectly as the steak was cooked. We never waited for anything but had ample time to enjoy our cocktails and each course. Desert was as special as the rest of the meal. This place is definitely on our list for a revisit!"
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Just wanted to have a decent meal with practical portions of a main course. This was not the case. Too much steak for most women and the rest of the meal just ordinary! Even my husband thought much too much food and very pricey. Both categories could be given better choices. Dessert was very good. However, one shouldn't have to be totally dissatisfied with the main meal with hopes of a great dessert. No, this place is not for most people today, and over priced!"
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "This is one of our go to Steak Houses for dinner... Steaks are always done perfectly and service has always been very good to great! We dined in the lounge area, not our favorite, but there was a big party in the main dining room and the host thought this would be better. THANK YOU-GREAT SUGGESTION!!! Enjoyed the wine, cocktails and steaks.... Had dessert, which we split and tasty too! The trio Filets were done perfectly as was my Delmonico Steak! Give the place a try!"

  • "1776 is like going back to your old neighborhood. From entering to leaving it feels like you were always there. Menu items were drawn up by a female chef ,who knew that fresh ingredients was all that made the meal exceptional. All items served were timed perfectly to each other so as not one item lost its presentation. The staff too were like your old friends conversation flowed easily."

  • "My husband and I dined at 1776 Steakhouse. We were pleasantly surprised how delicious are meal was. We both had filet mignon that was perfectly cooked and melted in our mouths. My husband ordered a trappist beer which was very good. They have a nice variety of beer. We will definitely go back soon!"

  • "Aside from wonderful food and service everything is impeccably done at 1776. Food presentation is great and it tastes better than it looks. Nothing is spared to provide the customer a great experience. There is good jazz music, loud enough to hear but not too loud to intrude on your dinning. For a great steak 1776 is a must."

  • "Three of us visited early Sunday evening. Even though there weren't many tables service was just alright - wine dripped on the table when pouring all three glasses. Slow. The oysters on the half shell were dry as if they had been shucked and refrigerated earlier in the day. The 1776 filet and the delmonico were very nice pieces of meat prepared just as requested. The desserts were nothing short of awful. Creme brulee that tasted like a box mix, and an apple tart that was so tough it had to be cut with a knife."
