Steakhouse
Named for the year that Dr. John Anderson purchased the land upon which the resort now stands, 1796 Room has now been re-launched as a signature steak and chophouse, serving steaks, chops, fish and poultry of the highest quality.

1796 uses only the highest quality 21-day aged USDA prime beef. Our meats are prepared at 1700° on our infrared broiler ensuring juiciness, tenderness and flavor.

All entrées are served with our signature grilled artichoke, and “shared” side dishes are available à la carte along with a tasty dessert selection freshly prepared in-house by our pastry team.

Our world-class wine list is designed to match the quality of our food selection, and our professional staff is trained to recommend the perfect wine pairing with your meal.

Creating a relaxed yet upscale atmosphere of warm sophistication, the new 1796 Room is a dining experience not to be missed.

Our sever was Michelle. She was very helpful and attentive. The food from appetizer of shrimp to my main entree of filet mignon was excellent. It is expensive but well worth it.

Food was wonderful but what made the experience exceptional was the outstanding service provided by Jacob. Other tables around us were stating the same. What a fine young man who makes you feel that your table is the only one he is attending to, all the while giving his other tables the same attentiveness. I can’t say enough about the ambience which made our 15 th wedding anniversary all the more special!!!!!!

Food was mediocre - seemed overpriced for what it was. Caesar Salad was $10 but was no $10 salad - ridiculously small portion. Mine and my husband’s steaks were a bit over-cooked. Service seemed “off” - waiter was friendly but definitely not on top of things. Dinners were not brought out hot - seemed like might have been sitting a bit. Also - waiter brought out my glass of wine right away but never brought out my husbands cocktail till we were eating our salads (quite a bit of time after my wine). Would not go back.

We were staying there for 3 days and wanted a nice dinner before leaving the next day. Everything about the dining room was lovely the server, Jacob, couldn't have been more attentive and courteous. Food was delicious and no rush to leave.....would go again!!!

We stared at the The Frontier restaurants with drinks and the charcuterie plate.

Delicious salads, steaks, sauces, sides, and dessert.
Service was outstanding (by Lisa). 1796 Room is one of our favorite restaurants in PA.

The Omni In Bedford Springs is first rate.

I Highly recommend this restaurant.

my wife ordered lamb chops and all three times they came out raw and not cooked in the center. They took the lamb chops off the bill. They are supposed to be noted for steaks.

The restaurant is inside the hotel behind the bar and tavern restaurant. The noise level depends on the bar noise which can be loud, especially on a Saturday night when two weddings were at the hotel. The food options are typical to a steak house, your salad/soup, protein and sides are all ordered separately. The food was very good and the staff was very eager to please. We had a reservation and were sat on time, a hostess brought menus, bread and water and then we sat for 30 minutes without ever having a server. We finally got up to go get drinks at the bar and that’s when they realized nobody has ever waited on us. They were very apologetic and comped our drinks. Was a lively evening aside from that one misstep.

We have dined here many times over the years and were very disappointed this time. The risotto was very bland and the chunks of lobster were good but the flavor was not at all incorporated into the risotto. The scallops lacked seasoning and were a bit undercooked. My husband had the ahi and his risotto (crab) was similar to mine in its lack of flavor. His ahi was over cooked so we sent it back. The second serving was cooked correctly but lacked seasoning as well.

All in all, not what we had come to expect from the 1796 Room. Very disappointing.

It depends. It's expensive and and the sides are a la carte... but also shareable. So depends on who is going and what they would like. My risotto was tasteless and our side of broccolini was ice cold. My shrimp.scampi was excellent. The bread was awesome. My husband's tuna was great too. The seating was very uncomfortable. For the price, it was a little too hit or miss for me.

The food was excellent, the service was wonderful, but the noise level was loud. I know it is not Omni's fault - they cannot control the etiquette people speaking or their children. We have eaten there a number of times and this one was disappointing.

My wife and I purchased a one night golf package and decided to spend a quiet dinner at 1796. We weren't disappointed! Our server Michelle was charming and pleasantly answered any of our questions. I had the duck and my wife the shrimp scampi. All was perfectly cooked and presented. We shared a blueberry & oat tart for dessert. We're looking forward to our next visit (this was our second at OBSR)!

We had a great time at Bedford and our dinner was excellent at the 1796 Room !
The N.Y. strip steak is juicy and flavorful while the salmon was also very good.

We were seated on a couch/love seat which we enjoyed. It was good that we were close to each other as we had to raise our voices to talk to one another since the noise level was very loud due to a full dining room and lots of people enjoying wine. When the A/C turned on, it was very chilly. Our take-home bag which was sitting on our table was actually moving in the cold breeze. That's how strong the air was blowing. I must remind myself to take a sweater with me when we dine there next. Our server, Ashley, is a super server! She was very attentive to make sure we didn't need anything else and that our food was to our liking. She's very professional, helpful, and knew the menu well. We were celebrating our anniversary so she included on our desserts a chocolate banner which read "Happy Anniversary" which was a very nice and thoughtful touch to add to our happy dining experience. We'll definitely return and request Ashley to be our server!

We had wonderful service because Jacob was our server. All of our meals were delicious... And the creme brulee at the end said happy birthday to my granddaughter who had turned 16.
We would certainly recommend and we'll be coming back soon

The dining experience was superb from start to finish. The food was delicious & artfully prepared. Our waitress lisa knew our name and was perfect throughout the meal, making recommendations, polite small talk, and being attentive. Who would think a gluten free chocolate cake& blueberry tart could be so delicious? We would highly recommend dining here.

Joined the wonderful Bedford Springs staff at 1796 Room for a business meeting and were fortunate to be seated in the smaller century-old kitchen area. Jacob provided an attentive service to us. Appetizer, main course, side to desserts were all incredible and enjoyed completely by the group.

The server was not very well trained regarding social interaction. He was quite good about doing everything by rote but didn't seem to understand the nuances as to why it was to be done that way. It made for a very uncomfortable dinner.

As I reported in the hotel critic, the food taste was outstanding but the food was warm and/or cold by the time it finally reached us. It wasn’t very busy either. We ate it anyway because of the long wait. Mentioned to the waitress about the wonderful taste but absolutely poor food temperature and she applied a 10% discount which was nice. But the meal which should have been totally amazing was diner good instead.

1796 Room was such an enjoyable experience from the time we were greeted, seated & served. Lisa, our excellent server, greeted us by wishing us Happy Anniversary, which started the joyful dining experience. Lisa told us about the different plates, answered all our questions & made some suggestions. Lisa also gave us time to discuss our options while we enjoyed our libations. She did not hover & came over when we were ready. 1796 Room capped our stay at Omni Bedford. We had the Filets, which was cooked to perfection. We would definitely recommend 1796.
