The servers were arrogant and snobby. The food was ok, but with their attitude, they should not be patronized.

My family and I stopped by 1776 for lunch to avoid the chain restaurants we can visit anywhere. This restaurant has an intimate atmosphere with fascinating colonial era prints and actual artifacts. Each of us ordered the Lobster and Seafood Bisque which was rich and flavorful. We also enjoyed seafood dishes such as shrimp salad and steamed little neck clams... More

The filet mignon was fantastic and served with Beranaise Sauce that is prepared perfectly. The crabcakes were not good at all as they were mostly fillers. Great place for their steaks though. Prices were very high but the atmosphere is good. They have a bar that was filled with locals that did not seem to enjoy visitors we saw there... More

First and foremost the service was of note at this restaurant. It seemed the other restaurants we went to on this trip were less than welcoming to non-locals. The complete opposite was true here. We are from NJ and a server besides ours and the owner cam over to chat with us about NJ. Our server was a very sweet... More

We had a truly wonderful new year's eve dinner there. Excellent service. Excellent food. Excellent wines. Everyone in the party was praising the restaurant Then we took a party of eight for dinner, expecting a similar experience. Unfortunately this was not to be the case. Service bad. Food average. Order delayed and served piecemeal. No attempt by management to solve... More

My husband and I were in Ocean City, MD in the off season and had really had poor experiences with food (we tried Fat Daddy's and paid a lot for mediocre meal, we tried a Chinese place in the "Sin City" shopping center near Fenwick Beach that was truly terrible, the list goes on). We had decided for our date... More

1776 used to be one of the premier high end restaurants in the area. We always looked forward to dining there. Went in for my birthday dinner and both the food and service were very mediocre for such an expensive meal. The waiter forgot our soups. The entrees were ok..nothing great. But the service was horrible. The waiter could not... More

We were told this was a mix of Italian and steak house by our hotel front desk person. The special of the evening was Tuna, and it was served with a light salsa type sauce. It was very good and cooked as requested. I enjoyed the Chicken Provincial, and it came with green beans. The chicken was wonderful, the beans... More

We are not in Rehoboth Beach very often, but when we are we make sure to have dinner here. I'm always a little afreaid that this time, it's not going to be as good as I remember. Well, that still hasn't happened. The best steaks I've ever had, better than Ruth Chris or Morton's. Everyone that I've recommended this place... More
