    We enjoyed a quite dining experience. A group of five could chat and be heard. Sort of like we were at home but I did not have to cook. The meal was awesome, Service with a smile. She was there when we needed her but not bothersome. Yes I will return for a special occasion.

    A little pricy but it was excellent and I did not mind spending more for a great meal. The steaks were perfectly cooked and delicious. Skip the creamed spinach unless you like it with a heavily smoked flavor

    We were celebrating my husband's birthday, and he chose 1776 because he wanted perfect beef. He was not disappointed. We had a leisurely meal and service was more than adequate, but not obtrusive. 1776 remains one of our favorite restaurants.

    Tried for the second time in 15 years and experience was just mediocre. Restaurant is in desperate need of a breath of fresh air. Food is nothing exciting. Atmosphere reminds me of a cafeteria. Menu prices are extremely overpriced. Overall, a big disappointment. Don't bother.

    1776 offered a Prix-Fixe menu for Delaware Restaurant Week and included their hand cut Prime Rib. It was tasty and very well prepared. Along with the entree, the Lobster and Crab Bisque was filling as were the hot, baked soft rolls. Dessert was Carrot Cake. The wine list offered a nice selection of reasonable priced wines. The steaks are the main attraction. For a special treat try one on the steak plate.

    Dined on 9/24/2014
    We were looking forward this dining experience. On arrival we were seated just outside the bar and asked for a different table. We did not get impression this was well received by the hostess but were reseated. Waited for a short while before getting attention; however, Paul soon took our orders and seemed pleasant. Did not have beer which was draft - my husband selected another. Appetizer arrived before our drinks - we had the soup - it was good - not excellent. Our entree, the prime rib, arrived in a timely manner; however, when we cut into the meat it was cold. Vegetables were hot. Returned prime rib to be reheated. It was returned promptly; however, we found it to be on the tough side. In summary, service good, food fair.

    We are regulars at 1776. The quality of the food is consistently good. Their steaks are always excellent and they have a good sampling of seafood. My favorites here are the scallop dishes and the lobster tail. Desserts are also outstanding. Our waitress is most helpful and efficient.

    This is the ultimate restaurant if you want a delicious meal with a great bar. The restaurant took in many non reservations on Saturday night, so our reservation was not honored but 35 minutes late. The manager gave us great appetizers for free, the bar is world class, the aged beef spectacular and the six of us had a wonderful time celebrating two birthdays. You will not find a better steak in Lewes/Rehoboth Beach.

    Having heard good things about 1776, we were eager to try dining here....well, we knew as soon as we walked in, it was not what we expected. Decor looks it was last updated in 1976, server was good but the food quality was not deserving of such fees Delmonico steak was adequate, lamb was too tough to eat, wild salmon tasted like frozen farm raised....sides looked and tasted like frozen and mass produced

    This restaurant was a very pleasant surprise in a beach touristy area. Three of us had steak--three different cuts--and all were cooked perfectly and were delicious. The cuts are all very generously portioned. My crab and lobster soup starter was wonderful. One of us had the fish special--grilled rockfish--and said it was outstanding. It certainly looked like a beautiful plate the way the fish was presented. The waiter was superb, very experienced and appropriately attentive. The pace of service was excellent. We stayed after the meal telling stories for awhile and were not rushed. While we could talk fine, the background noise of sound band playing at the bar or in another room didn't help the atmosphere.

    It is easy to miss as it is in a small mall on route one, but don't let that influence you. Once you walk inside, the ambiance is very nice. The service was exceptional, and the food is very, very good. I highly recommend it to those who would like a special occasion.

    I had been looking forward to trying out 1776 but it was a let down. the steaks were ok but covered in way to much pepper. No choice of sides, menu listed chefs choice, it came with mashed potatoes which were not good at all and summer squash half was under cooked and the other half was over cooked. Our dessert was burnt. Will not be coming back.

    My sister and I went here looking for a good steak dinner and we were not disappointed. We had the baked brie puff pastry and scallop chips for appetizers and both were delicious! For an entree we both ordered the fillet mignon trio. Best steak I have had! The cheesecake was just as fabulous!! I highly recommend this restaurant.

    My husband and I dined here last Friday and the meal was wonderful. We split a salad which was large enough for both of us and the dressing was very light, not overpowering. I ordered the filet, medium rare. It was prepared exactly as ordered and slightly char broiled to perfection. It was extremely tender and flavorful. My husband ordered the barrel and his was also prepared to perfection. We both ordered dessert, the chocolate cake and the apple tart with ice cream. Fabulous. Large portions, enough to take some home for the next day. We'll be back soon!

    The customer service here is what makes this restaurant better than any restaurant I've been to and I've traveled to many up scale restaurants but 1776 is by far the best. The waiters/waitresses are caring, personal and attend to your every need while being polite and respectful with a smile on their face. The owner is very down to earth yet professional who has taken care of me and my wife like we were best friends over years. The background live jazz music is so relaxing and creates the perfect mood for a romantic evening. And the food, is to die for! This place is awesome if you haven't ate here, you haven't really enjoyed a great meal!
