I have been looking for a quality steak/beef restaurant in the greater Rehoboth area area, at somewhat reasonable prices, for a couple of years now. 1776, located in a Rt 1 strip mall area, is not what you would expect from the exterior. Nestled alongside of multiplex cinema, you feel like you have stepped back in time once you enter... More

On the surface, this place appears amazing, you walk in and are greeted right away by the friendly staff. The decor appears impressively colonial and has been completely transformed from the strip mall shell that it started out as. However, if you look a little deeper, your first impression will be decreased quite a bit. The finishing touches are just... More

Very expensive steak house with lots of alternatives. I first visited this place about 11 years ago when I was treated to a $150 dinner for two. But I now go there often for my favorite menu item, the Eastern Shore Favorite -- chicken salad and oysters, always a treat. Even at dinner time, you can request the lunch menu... More

The restaurant wait staff and owners were unbelievably accommodating. The food was good however a little high priced for the quality. Don't get me wrong, the steaks are great but at that price I would expect it to just melt in my mouth. I found my porterhouse cooked perfectly but a little tough. The seafood tasted fresh and seemed to... More

Everything at 1776 is great. Yes it is pricey but for the most part it's justified. This is the first restaurant I've been to where they bring you a platter of meat & explain each cut to you before ordering.

Fantastic dinner! My fiancee and I had our first meal in Rehoboth here and it was wonderful. We split the scallop chips with the horseradish sauce delicious! I had the trio and it was absolutely fantastic! My fiancee enjoyed the 8oz filet we loved it... left feeling very full. The live Jazz was awesome. Service was great!

I have eaten in a lot of world class steakhouses in my 70 years and I found this one right up there with them. I liked the fact that the staff wasn't pretentious or overly attentive. This was a nice balance of good service and comfortable dining. The food was well prepared, original, and of good quality. I would recommend... More

This is suppose to be a steak house but, the prime rib was bad. I am usually not a prime rib eater but, thought I would try it since this is a steak house.That was a big mistake. Place was too price for the food received.
