Dinner to remember! My eighty-something mom and I went to 1776 early on a Friday night. The restaurant was very crowded and we were seated at a table in the middle of the room right behind a large and noisy group. We were not happy...More

Went to dinner with close friends. Good food. Great service. We were there for a few hours and never felt hurried out. Everyone enjoyed their food, and even more important was their accommodation of special needs. One of our party needs no gluten whatsoever, another...More

I was a big fan of 1776 prior to the new management and was a little concerned at the change, particularly as they embarked on the remodel. I needn't have worried - they made a good place even better. The chef is the same, the...More

I know the owner is new, but the kitchen staff is the same. We went on a Saturday with the reservation and we're seated at the front of the restaurant by the door. If the tables were way too close together people kept bumping into...More
