Nice place to have some pub grub...watch some sports...and drink Dogfish beers. The place itself is very cool...as are all their establishments...but it often gets very packed...so keep that in mind. The food is good to very good...but nothing really great or gourmet or anything. As for the beers...they usually seem to be their standard offereings...at least when Iíve visited (just down the road from a family member...so convenient when I visit them)...itís unfortunate they donít offer more specialty and one off beers...seems like just the standards...along with some of the same seasonals that cycle. Iím guessing they may have some special tasting nights...but they donít seem to be on the weekends when I visit. By the way...I am a big Dogfish fan...especially their Milford, DE brewery and their Rehoboth Beach brewpub...I just feel this place is a bit too corporate and lacking some of the soul of the DE locations. Still...if in the area...worth a visit.
Very busy place at the lunch time. The guy who served us very super and so were the brews. Unfortunately there was not that many new beers since our last yearís visit to Dogfish Head place in Rehoboth Beach. I found it a bit funny when the guy said if youíd like to buy some of the Dogfish Head beers to go we shouldnít buy the beers from them but from the liquor store at the same mall. Quite interesting.
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 youíve 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 doesnít stretch any further.

Stopped in for lunch on my trip from DC to Cíville. Easily located off 66, not much of a detour. The vibe is pretty corporate, very much like a TGI Fridays. Thereís a little bit of brewing memorabilia, but I wouldíve liked to see a bit more of DFHís personality on display. This place is primarily a restaurant. Thereís 17 taps, sure, but this placeís bread and butter seems to be food. The foodís actually not bad, solid American pub fare. The beerís 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 youíre 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.
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.
