Came here with my wife to celebrate our anniversary while on vacation (not really a kid type place). The ambiance is nice - quiet and quaint. The decor is old and outdated and could use a freshening-up but didn't care as much just as long as the food was good. I ordered the porterhouse while my wife choose this 3... More

Despite the "strip mall" location, 1776 does things "first rate". The bar is quaint and cozy with a good vibe AND I enjoyed our mixologist very much. On to the FOOD.... We chose a very well prepared and "top end" filet mignon, which we topped with bleu cheese. PERFECTLY grilled (medium rare), tasty and tender. The baked potato was served... More

Went to 1776 for the first time today. Our server was so nice, very patient and the food was delicious. I had "Surf and Turf" which was a very good burger topped with crab imperial and Swiss cheese. We also had excellent onion rings, good salad, and very good bisque. Excellent service and beautiful restaurant. Completely unexpected in a strip... More

We were looking for a nice relaxing restaurant for the evening and were suggested this place by the hotel we were staying in. I had the crab cakes and my husband the steak. Both were extremely good. If you are traveling on a budget or have small children I would not suggest this restaurant.

Went to 1776 expecting a nice peaceful meal. What we got was a real experience. There was entertainment and it was extremely loud. It is not that the entertainer was bad he was just loud and overpowering. The food was fair at best. My filet was quite good while my wife's NY Strip was just okay. The mashed potatoes were... More

Fine dining at its finest. I wouldn't suggest bringing the kids here, but it is great for a date night or business meeting. The steaks are out of this world(especially the 1776 Steak). Great appetizers, desserts, drinks, etc. It is expensive, but worth every penny.

My husband and I were hankering for some meat after several days of seafood. We both got the 6 Oz filets, medium, and they were perfectly cooked and delicious. The service was excellent as well (Michele waited on us) and was able to accommodate our "no starch" diets w 2 vegetables. She split our salad and appetizer for us with... More

Tucked away in an inconspicuous strip mall is this wonderful restaurant. Great aged steaks, wonderful lobster ravioli, and a great wine list. By looking at the outside of the restaurant, you would never expect this restaurant to be this great!

We stopped here for lunch and my spouse had a salad made up of fresh mozzarella cheese wrapped with prosciutto with greens and a balsamic dressing. I had their gourmet 1776 burger. The waiter brought me a steak knife -- saying you will need this as this burger to big to be picked up (10oz -- perfect lean beef) --... More

Have dined here for special occasions many times. Have had many items on the menu from the seafood bisque, steaks, pork chops and desserts. The service is impeccable.
