1776 Steakhouse in Midway: The Cape Region’s go-to spot for fine dry-aged steaks & outstanding service

July 9, 2019

Still basking in the glow of the 2018 and 2019 Best of Delaware awards, 1776 Steakhouse continues to be the Cape Region’s oasis of quiet elegance for over two decades. Located midway between Rehoboth and Lewes, 1776 is the perfect venue for special friends, great conversation, relaxing live music and the finest steaks along with fresh seafood, chops, chicken, pasta and vegetarian dishes. Beware of pretenders! Others may come and go, but 1776 Steakhouse has stood the test of time.

At lunch, experience the lobster-filled black ravioli, the chicken salad on mixed greens with plump panko-breaded oysters, or the Surf and Turf Burger rubbed with Old Bay and topped with crab Imperial and swiss cheese.

Dinner choices at 1776 Steakhouse include the 20oz. Delmonico steak, an 8oz. filet mignon, the signature 10oz. barrel steak and the signature 16oz. prime rib. Rack of lamb, crab cakes, stuffed lobster tail, blackened diver scallops and more round out the diverse menu. Save room for desserts such as crème brulee cheesecake or the chef’s featured chocolate surprise. Pair your feast with one of Johnny’s unusual brews, including a lineup of rare Trappist ales.

The smooth jazz sounds of Bernard Sweetney on keyboard and flute fill the room on Fridays and Saturdays. Nick Wayne entertains from 6 to 9 on Thursdays and Sundays and Bryan Clark sings Sinatra on selected nights. Call 302-645-9355 for upcoming dates and times.

1776 Steakhouse offers a full bar, hand-selected wines, terrific service and convenient parking. No wonder it has been a Rehoboth tradition for years! The restaurant is located in the Midway Center on Route 1 and is open daily year-round. Lunch is served Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., and dinner hours are 5 to 10 p.m. Monday through Saturday. On Sundays, 1776 is open from 4 to 9 p.m. Call 645-9355 for reservations.

As we celebrate the July 4th holiday, what better time for owners Tom Holmes, Tammy Mozingo and Johnny Farquhar to invite you to experience their revolutionary dining experience in the Midway Center. Visit for entertainment schedules and the lunch & dinner menus.
