Nice restaurant located in the middle of a shopping plaza focusing on Dogfish beers. Decent selection of drafts from Dogfish Head. Food is good and on par with the other locations. Growler fills available. Lots of free parking.

If you’ve visited the brewpub in Rehoboth Beach thus is similar but only 75% as good. The ambience of the restaurant is similiar except instead of being on the main drag of a sleepy beach tow its in a suburban shopping center. They have all the orthodox DFH releases but none of the brewpub one offs. The food and service are solid but priced fairly high and not the primary reason to go.

Stopped in on a Sunday lunchtime. Certainly a very commercial looking place and agree with what jackl said about the feel of a TGi Fridays. Of course the beer is great DFh but doesn’t stretch any further.

Stopped in for lunch on my trip from DC to C’ville. Easily located off 66, not much of a detour. The vibe is pretty corporate, very much like a TGI Fridays. There’s a little bit of brewing memorabilia, but I would’ve liked to see a bit more of DFH’s personality on display. This place is primarily a restaurant. There’s 17 taps, sure, but this place’s bread and butter seems to be food. The food’s actually not bad, solid American pub fare. The beer’s pretty expensive. My 16oz pour of 75 min IPA was something like $7. A few ancient ales were on offer. The service was fine. Overall, worth a detour for lunch if you’re heading west out of DC. Solid food, decent beers.

Stopped in for lunch. Very friendly and knowledgable bartender. More than willing to provide small tasters before ordering. Around 15 beers on draft and another dozen in bottles -- all Dogfish Head and therefore interesting.

great food, lots of DFH beer on tap and in bottles (w/some vintage), great service... can’t complain... I would eat here a lot if I lived up here.

Absoluely jam packed at lunchtime on a Friday. Atmosphere resembles Ruby Tuesday. Selection was a bit better than other locations, and they do interesting things with a randall. Growlers too. Food is decent brewpub. Service was good despite being busy.

HAD to go here since we wouldn’t be making it all the way out to Dogfish Head’s HQ on this road trip. The ale houses aren’t owned by DFH but the owners and DFH work closely to ensure the brand and appearances are in line with DFH’s goals. That was nice to hear. The selection was fantastic! Almost everything DFH is making was on tap. You could sample unlimited beers as long as you were also ordering food and beers. I got a $9 beer sampler which had beers I’ve already had but it was still fun to have the 60, 75 and 90 minute IPAs side by side. Food was great and we left with a 4-pack of Chicory stout and a t-shirt. The staff was fantastic! I have nothing bad to say about them. For lunch time on a Saturday, there were plenty of bar seats available. Don’t buy beer here. Total Wine in the same shopping center had all the same stuff. Example: World Wide Stout was $20 at the ale house but $9 at Total wine 100 yards away. Overall, a very nice experience!

A nice place from the respect that they offer some of the rarer Dogfish Head beers...but the prices are ridiculous and the decor reminds me of a poorly done Applebees or Ruby Tuesdays.

Awesome place! Service was great, food was good, and a nice selection of Dogfish beers. They even have a sampler with six Dogfish brews, incase your not familiar with their beers. I had the Black and Red, never had or seen that one before, although it was $9, it was well worth it!
