1776 Steakhouse continues its tradition of impeccable service and fine-dining appeal for over 20 years. This comfortable oasis of skillfully prepared cuisine is the perfect venue not only for family and business gatherings, but also quietly elegant meals with special friends. Located in Midway between Rehoboth and Lewes, 1776 Steakhouse is known for the finest steaks along with fresh seafood, chops, chicken, pasta, vegetarian dishes and relaxing live music. Beware of pretenders: 1776 is the real thing!

At lunch, don’t miss the lobster-filled black ravioli! Top it off with the chicken salad on mixed greens with plump panko-breaded oysters, or the Surf and Turf Burger rubbed with Old Bay and crowned 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 perfectly prepared 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 1776’s own crème brulee cheesecake or the chef’s featured chocolate surprise.

The smooth jazz sounds of Bernard Sweetney on keyboard and flute fill the room on Fridays and Saturdays from 7 to 10, and Nick Wayne entertains from 6 to 9 on Thursdays and Sundays. Bryan Clark brings the sounds of Sinatra into 1776 on selected nights. Call 302-645-9355 for upcoming dates and times.

This longtime classic steakhouse at the beach offers a full bar, excellent wines, an eclectic assortment of brews, terrific service and convenient parking. No wonder it has been a Cape Region tradition for so many years!
