We celebrated our wedding anniversary at 1776 and thoroughly enjoyed the experience! As we waited for the baked shrimp with goat cheese, avocado and reduced balsamic appetizer, we enjoyed the crusty rolls with our wine. My husband had the butt steak and I had the wild meat platter of bison, quail and elk. Both entrees came with a salad; I chose the sour cherry vinaigrette which was excellent! His entree included shoe string potatoes and a mixed vegetable and mine had garlic mashed potatoes and mixed vegetables. To celebrate the occasion, we were treated to a chocolate cake dessert that was a perfect ending to our meal! Service all around was excellent and would return to try another dish.

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 at that turn of events, so were seated at the bar. Ended up being a very enjoyable evening and the owner, Rhienna, went out of her way to take care of us. Oh, and the food (especially liked the coconut shrimp) was very good too.

Just had dinner for second time since new ownership and remodel. Where I live has too many sports bars, pizza and junk food choice, and not enough interesting menus. 1776 is one big exception to boring bar food choices! Ingredients are primarily locally sourced and organic. Love unusual choices like elk, wild boar and others, but the classics are amazing too! Best ribeye ever, for example. The staff is wonderful and attentive but don't hover. The owner is there to check on her guests and answer questions. Vegans rejoice! Be sure to ask for their separate vegan menu which has several choices from appetizers to desserts. So hard to feed a visiting vegan. Bravo!! Make a reservation! They book up quickly...and with good reason.

1776 has always been the premiere fine dining destination in Crystal Lake, but its specializing in wild game resulted in no menu options for vegans. But with a recent change in ownership, that has changed! There are two vegetarian main dishes, the Vegetarian Feast and Vegetarian Wellington. Both are delicious, especially the Vegetarian Wellington, even if not completely vegan. There is also a Vegetarian Pizza (Romano cheese), and several other generally acceptable options, if you’re willing to go a little off your vegan diet. There is still a lot of oil used, especially in frying, but the chef obviously has the talent to create some fabulous dishes. We’d love to see what could be done in terms of whole foods, plant based, no added fat options. In the meantime, we’ll be returning to enjoy what is already available.
