Had a very nice evening. Had the crab & lobster bisque (very good). Enjoyed the Steak 1776 ( w/lump crab), 14oz Delmonico w/blue cheese demi-glaze (which we shared on the Porterhouse too), and 2 of us shared the 22oz Porterhouse. Only suggestion would be: Two of us shared the Porterhouse. It was presented uncut on a plate with an extra... More

So first the not so great news - the restaurant is located on the right as you go north from Rehoboth beach on Rt 1 in a strip mall next to a movie theater. Parking can be quite challenging on a weekend or otherwise busy movie night unless you have a later reservation when the theater lets out. But it... More

More specifically, I rate this restaurant/bar as "Excellent" for food, and "Poor" for service. Like many restaurants in Rehoboth, 1776 is relatively pricey, so customers naturally expect an enjoyable dining experience. My husband and I have chosen to celebrate a couple of special occasions at this steakhouse for its delicious food, and while the first couple of times there were... More

Have passed by this restaurant many times when going to the movies next door. Don't really think of a "good" restaurant in a strip mall, but while stopping and reading the menu, a couple of gentlemen walking by gave us a positive review of the restaurant. We came back later that evening and were met by a pleasant hostess who... More

We decided to make reservations late in the day for dinner that evening and were able to get a table at 8:15. As we arrived a few minutes early it was very busy however we were still able to be seated in only a few minutes. The manager cleared a special spot up in the "balcony" type area where it... More

I reserved a table a week prior for our anniversary, Upon arrival, the waiter was ready to seat us when the manager (?) walked over and started quibbling with him on the table selection. (Waiters choice not ours.) You know you are in trouble when the waiter says "are you sure" to the manager about which table to seat us... More

This clubby (as in men's club), pricey, steakhouse in a strip mall was a surprise when I first visited it over a year ago. We ate there several times and at each one they really delivered! I've been going other places the last 6 months but I went back this past week and they are still spot on! Although I've... More

In this world of big chain restaurants with mall like repetition, this 1776 Steak House stands out by being a one of a kind. A pleasant but somewhat dated appearance in a strip center next to a Move doesn't sound like a first choice place to visit. Food was excellent, a barrel cut steak, was cooked to my requested Medium... More

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
