We visited Cafe 1776 for lunch on a Wednesday. The service was fast, the food was good. I had the fried Oysters. They seemed quite fresh and had a very good taste. When we are back in the area, we'll go again.

I expected more based on the reviews. The grouper was fresh but fried even though I ordered grilled, and the french fries were like the frozen ones my mother used to make in the 1960s. I don't mind a lack of ambience if the food is delicious, but this didn't qualify.

You don't go to 776 for the ambience, you go got good food at fair prices. I had the teriyaki shrimp salad and my wife had the fried red grouper sandwich. Portions were very generous, and everything was fresh and very tasty. Service was friendly and attentive. The café was old and could use some updating, but it was clean.... More

Quaint, small cafe in a strip mall off busy route 776. The waitstaff were pleasant and efficient. The food was well prepared. The portions were huge and two average people could share an entree. I enjoyed a taco salad, plenty of meat but too much sodium.

We tried this for lunch and we're pleasantly surprised. It is a real casual place with friendly service and huge greaseless made food. We shared a seafood platter and it was so good.

I love great shrimp. They did not disappoint. The service was good and the food was served hot. The menu is not huge but the items are great.

Doesn't look like much from the outside, but the meal was fabulous! Very casual place to get some awesome food! Bar area looks like a tiki bar. Restaurant is tiny but they do have carry out. Open for lunch and dinner. Server was excellent! Huge portions! Super fast service! We will definitely be back!

We always visit Cafe 776 when we are in the area. It is an unpretentious place, but they serve the best fish. Like many popular places, you might have to wait for a table. The meals are very good value and - Brits beware - the portions are HUGE. We tend to go for the Fish Finger Basket (nothing like... More

My husband and I went here on October 11th. It was what appeared to be a restaurant where the "locals" go. We shared the seafood platter. All seafood was fried. The cole slaw was very good. They serve only beer and wine here.

Have been to Cafe 776 twice recently. Both times food was excellent. I ordered the Cod Fish dinner - Queen size - both times. It was a HUGE portion and more than I could eat, but delicious! Not sure how big the King size portion is but the Queen size covered my entire plate; the server brought me an extra... More
