1776 is the best known steakhouse in the Lewes/Rehoboth Beach area. It's location in a strip shopping center next to the movie megaplex is always commented upon but hey, there's lots of free parking, not the norm in the beach area.
Dining here reminds me of country clubs in the 70'-80's. Mature well-informed pleasant servers, numerous beef choices and old school sides like creamed spinach, which is incredibly delicious. The menu isn't particularly innovative but entirely appropriate for a steakhouse. And the most important thing is that the beef is high quality and nearly always done to perfection. (I say nearly always because this last visit my steak, ordered medium rare, was solidly medium)
There is a female singer some evenings doing old standards and she has a nice voice and it provides nice background music. My parents, who are in their 70's, absolutely love her. This is a lovely restaurant for a family dinner, or a date among the mature set. I don't think that those in their twenties will find this their type of place, unless of course, they have a meat-tooth.
