Have wanted to go here for years but never did until our 50th wedding anniversary last week. Oh my...we have missed such great food! The food was outstanding. My husband had prime rib and he really enjoyed it. I had the steak and it was so tender that I could cut it with a fork. The crab soup was very... More

We have been been frequenting this fine establishment for nearly 9 years. The Atmosphere is great, very accommodating staff and owner Tom goes way beyond to make sure we are always happy. Whether lunch or Dinner. I personally recommend the House garden salad with the maple vinengrette and blue cheese. Or the baked brie. Creme brulee with fresh berries will... More

We visited the 1776 while visiting friends. From the moment we walked in and were greeted and seated, we felt relaxed and welcome. The bartender was great. He made my girlfriend, finicky about her martinis, her very special cucumber martini and she was delighted. Tim, our waiter, was simply amazing. He has a terrific personality and was very attentive to... More

We have been looking to try 1776 Steakhouse for quite sometime now and since it was restaurant week here we went last night. It was surprisingly nice upon entering, seemed like a nice atmosphere. It was a very busy Friday night, and had made reservations, and only waited a very short time to be seated. The host was very nice... More

We ordered their two most expensive cuts rare, they came out medium well. I think that says it all. We sent them back and we did receive a better product but not up to par. The steaks lacked seasoning and a proper sear.

Recently re visited 1776 Steakhouse in Lewes after a 7 year lapse and was very pleased. The dinning room is nicely decorated with spacious tables and ample seating. Tables are far enough apart so you can move around without bumping into the people seated behind you. We had reservations for 6:30 and were promptly seated on time. Our water glasses... More

Great menu, friendly service, excellent bartender, and accommodating owner. I usually start with the black lobster ravioli (delish). Then I get the filet mignon done Pittsburgh style (charred on the outside and medium rare on the inside). 1776 does it perfectly every time. And some garlic double mashed potatoes. And did I mention the perfect Grey Goose Gibsons? Best I've... More

We have eaten here before, also with mixed results. This weekend the petite filet and crab cake were excellent, but the rack of lamb was tough and fatty. The banana cream pie was tasty and quite sweet. Dinner is pricey and one expects consistent good quality. The wait staff was appropriately attentive.

My husband and I have been going to 1776 for the last 5 years. The food is excellent and the staff are very pleasant and knowledgeable about the menu. We always take our family and friends to 1776 because it is a restaurant where you receive excellent meals and friendship. The specials for the evening as well as the regular... More

Popped in for an early dinner. The seating area was bland, without delivering a steakhouse experience. Our waitress was nice, however lacking levels required for a steakhouse. We were not offered the pre-drinks menu or shown the steaks available, both of which another table had. No complaints on service, just not on a high enough par. Steaks were cooked perfectly,... More
